Xirrus XD2-230 Series



The XD2-230 is an intelligent 802.11ac Wave 2 Access Point (AP) that is very easy to deploy and simple to manage from the cloud or on-premise. Designed with a powerful integrated controller, layer 7 application visibility and simple user access with EasyPass, this AP provides a seamless solution for environments requiring high performance Wi-Fi connectivity, such as classrooms, offices, hospitals, libraries, and more. The powerful XD2-230 AP has 3 radios, including Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), and provides secure access for Wi-Fi users and IoT devices. This highly extensible AP easily integrates with 3rd party software through standards based JSON APIs for advanced capabilities such as location services. With a click of a button, software defined radios enable an instant increase in 5GHz capacity to adapt to changing client needs to deliver the industry’s best price-performance solution.

802.11ac Wave 2 technology provides significant performance improvements and greatly increases the efficiency of Wi-Fi networks. XD2 APs leverage Wave 2 to meet the demands of today’s BYOD and Internet of Things (IoT) environments with the capacity to support increased demand whenever needed.

Ideal for offices, classrooms, conference rooms, and other areas that require robust Wi-Fi connectivity, the XD2 delivers extreme performance even with applications that demand a lot of bandwidth.

Manage and upgrade your network with ease. Cloud-based or on-premise network management ties your Wi-Fi network together. Installation is fully customizable through deployment kits, enclosures, and mounting options. Build the system that works best for you.


  • Twice the number of 11ac 5GHz radios per AP reduces equipment and lowers TCO
  • Cloud or on-premise management with zero-touch provisioning
  • Integrated application control to ensure reliable Wi-Fi performance
  • Distributed intelligence with integrated controller for no single point of failure
  • EasyPass access services simplifies onboarding for guests, employees and BYOD


EASY TO MANAGE — Designed for simple deployment, zero-touch configuration gets your network up and running in minutes. Combined with the Xirrus Management System (XMS), this solution provides complete visibility and control to easily manage users, devices and applications, all from a single console.

HIGH PERFORMANCE — Packed with performance, this dual radio AP delivers 2x the 5GHz Wi-Fi capacity compared to competitive APs. Instantly boost performance with the click of a mouse to adapt to changing client devices and optimize the user experience.

SIMPLE USER ACCESS — Xirrus EasyPass Access Services, integrated with Xirrus Management System-Cloud (XMS-Cloud): at no extra charge, provides a highly secure solution to simplify users connecting to the network, including single sign-on (SSO) with Microsoft and Google domains, self-provisioned access for guests, and easy onboarding of BYOD and headless IoT devices.

XD2 access points support software-defined radios that enable dual 802.11ac radio operation. This capability ensures a long product lifespan and allows gradual migration to Wave 2 as clients come to market.

XD2 access points support multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO), a Wave 2 advancement that enables multiple clients to communicate at once. This revolutionizes Wi-Fi operation and dramatically increases its efficiency.

Get up to twice the speed of other 802.11ac Wave 2 APs on the market. XD2 access points create an unsurpassed user experience. Mobile applications and Internet of Things (IoT) devices benefit from the new Wave 2 standard.


  • High performance 802.11ac Wave 2 AP
  • Software-defined radios enable all-5GHz deployment
  • EasyPass simplifies Wi-Fi access
  • Bluetooth ready AP for locationing
  • SSO with Office 365 and Google Apps
  • Manage from the cloud or on premise


With a powerful integrated controller, application level intelligence, zero-touch provisioning, and available cloud-based network management, Xirrus X, XR, XD series Access Points provide powerful Wi-Fi solutions for environments including classrooms, offices, hospitals, hotel rooms, and more. Xirrus Access Points are backward compatible and the latest model supports 802.11ac Wave 2 with Multi-User MIMO. Xirrus APs feature dual software programmable radios that deliver twice the number of 802.11ac radios compared to standard APs.
