Arista WiFi Access Point C-260
8x8 tri radio 802.11ax (WiFi 6) access point with internal antennas
Aesthetic Design and High Performance
Arista C-260 is an enterprise-grade, 12 stream Wi-Fi 6 AP with dual concurrent 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz band radios supporting 8 stream 802.11a/n/ac/ax, 4 stream 802.11b/g/n/ax and data rates of up to 4.8 Gbps and 1.4 Gbps, respectively.
C-260 provides Gen 2 Wi-Fi 6 performance improvements to deliver higher capacity and more efficient use of the available spectrum. It provides industry leading user experience and throughput in high density environments. Uplink/ Downlink OFDMA channelization allocates bandwidth more efficiently across client devices to provide a better user experience. The ability to serve multiple clients simultaneously through UL/DL MU-MIMO further improves system capacity and user experience. With support for eight spatial streams in 5GHz, the C-260 delivers truly unprecedented throughput and client capacity. C-260 is ideal for critical, high-density networks serving a high volume of diverse clients and applications. Common deployment scenarios include large schools, large remote offices, auditoriums, meeting rooms, and enterprise campuses.
