The AP 305C is indoor 802.11ax enterprise APs based on a new system-on-a-chip (SoC) with two software-defined dual-band radios providing high performance and high capacity.

Advanced radio technology delivers 802.11ax 2x2:2 data rates up to 2.4 Gb/s concurrently on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radios, including advanced transmit beamforming.

These 2x2:2 APs continue the Extreme tradition of SDR software-selectable radios (SSRs) capable of dual 5 GHz connectivity for indoor and industrial environments. An integrated BLE radio provides support for IoT beacon applications.

The AP 305C comes in an aesthetic design and can fit in the palm of your hand. Both models are eco-friendly APs partially made from recycled materials. Also included is an integrated light sensor and integrated power meter to help conserve power consumption. The easy install ceiling mount for quick installation and unique way to hide the Ethernet cables for an aesthetically pleasing installation.

The AP 305CX variant has four RP-SMA connectors for connection of external antennas.

Extreme AP305C appears to be powered by Broadcom BCM6755, however this is currently unconfirmed.
