CloudAP

A new-generation wireless network access product based on cloud and big data platforms

Configure and Maintain Large Wireless Networks in a Simple and Convenient Way

Alibaba CloudAP offers enterprise-level Wi-Fi management capability and provides Wi-Fi and BLE network coverage for places such as campuses, schools, hospitals, shopping malls, or supermarkets. CloudAP can be remotely managed and controlled by using CloudAC, and supports fast deployment of the Wi-Fi network and BLE network. You do not need to deploy an AC for CloudAP or deploy an authentication system for network access, which are necessary for traditional Wi-Fi products. This greatly reduces costs.

Integration of Wi-Fi Network and BLE Network

CloudAP integrates the Wi-Fi network and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) network. CloudAP supports access from mobile phones and computers over the Wi-Fi network.

CloudAC Architecture for Fast Network Configuration and Remote O&M

CloudAP adopts a cloud architecture and uses CloudAC for centralized configuration and management. You do not need to deploy an access controller (AC) for CloudAP.

PoE Power Supply for Easy Deployment

CloudAP can be wirelessly powered through Power Over Ethernet (PoE) ports, which makes onsite device installation easier.
