Wi-Fi Built for the Future

With five high-speed software-defined radios, the XE5-8 Wi-Fi 6E access point enables seamless transition to Wi-Fi 6E with the ability to easily change from dual-band to tri-band (2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, 6 GHz) support when sufficient 6 GHz clients are available. The XE5-8 is fully backward compatible with existing Wi-Fi technology, enabling simultaneous support of new high-speed clients, legacy clients, low-bitrate IoT devices, and more in a single wireless infrastructure.

Cloud and On-Premises Management

XE5-8 operates with either Cambium Networks’ XMS or cnMaestroTM management system. Choose the management system that best fits your business and use the latest technology from Cambium Networks.

Limited Lifetime Warranty

The XE5-8 comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty providing return and repair service on the access point from date of purchase until end of life of the product.
