Motorola AP300

Wireless Access Port


This plug-n-play zero-touch configuration access port is a key component of Motorola’s award-winning wireless switch system, the wireless LAN (WLAN) architecture that does more — yet costs less. Working in conjunction with Motorola’s wireless switches, the AP300 delivers robust and feature-rich IEEE 802.11a/b/g connectivity. It can also be used as a sensor in conjunction with Motorola’s Wireless Intrusion Protection System (IPS). Adoptable as either a Layer 2 or Layer 3 AP, the AP300 supports Layer 3 Mobility — substantially reducing the cost of deploying, implementing and managing a WLAN while significantly increasing features, functionality and the security of the WLAN infrastructure.

Part number

Supports Mobility at Layer 2 and Layer 3, working in conjunction with Motorola’s enterprise wireless LAN switches

This unique dual-function device can execute and enforce the IDS/IPS security policies configured in the Motorola wireless switch, and can also be utilized as a 24×7 dedicated sensor with Wireless IPS from Air Defense

Load balancing, pre-emptive roaming and rate scaling
Increases reliability and resilience of the wireless network to support mission critical applications

802.1x supplicant
Allows authentication to a RADIUS server to enable an 802.1x-protected Ethernet port

Support for IEEE standards-based security protocols for strong Encryption (AES, TKIP), Authentication and Key Management (802.1x-EAP)

Enables worldwide operation through support for standards-based dynamic frequency selection and power control

Simplifies and reduces total cost of installation through support of standards-based Power-over-Ethernet (PoE)

Dual form-factors
Plenum-rated external antenna model with metal housing is ideal for installation above ceiling tiles; the plastic internal-antenna housing allows for installation within the “carpeted-space” and provides cost-effective coverage via the integrated 2.4 GHz and 5.2 GHz antennas

Flexible mounting options
Fast and easy installation with wall, ceiling and above-ceiling tile mounting options; internal antenna version snaps on to T-bars of suspended ceilings without the use of any hardware; external antenna version installs above ceiling tiles



External antenna support Yes
Integrated antennas Yes
