The QWA-AC2600 is a 2.4/5 GHz Dual Band Dual Concurrent (DBDC), 4 x 4 Multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO), low-profile PCI Express (PCIe) 2.0 x1 wireless adapter with two Qualcomm QCA9984 NICs that supports up to 2533 Mbps (800 Mbps for IEEE 802.11n (2.4 GHz) and 1733 Mbps for IEEE 802.11ac (5 GHz)). The QWA-AC2600 can be used as an access point or a base station with Ubuntu/Linux PCs or QNAP NAS. Combining the higher compatibility of 802.11n and faster connection of 802.11ac, the QWA-AC2600 enables versatile applications including wireless LANs in the workplace and Internet of Things (IoT) deployment in the field.
The QWA-AC2600 utilizes the 802.11n and 802.11ac standards and offers speeds up to 2533 Mbps to deliver a low-latency, high-speed wireless experience.
The QWA-AC2600 supports Dual Band Dual Concurrent (DBDC) for acting as an access point or a base station, adding more possibilities to your investment.
The QWA-AC2600 supports 4 x 4 MU-MIMO technology for communicating with multiple clients with multiple signal lanes (spatial streams).
The QWA-AC2600 comes with four 5 dBi detachable omni-directional high-gain antennas. The universal RP-SMA connectors enable antenna replacements for boosting signals and coverage.
The QWA-AC2600 features an 80 cm high-frequency coaxial cable for extending the antennas' magnetic stand base for flexible deployment and coverage.
The QWA-AC2600 has an active cooling module to ensure optimal heat dissipation. The fan will adjust its speed to match the temperature of the module.
The QWA-AC2600 can turn your Ubuntu*/Linux PC or QNAP NAS into a wireless access point/base station for other wireless devices to directly access data stored on it. The QWA-AC2600's 2.4/5 GHz DBDC design can be configured to utilize two wireless networks for boosting performance. For a single Ubuntu/Linux PC or QNAP NAS, multiple sets of QWA-AC2600 can be installed to enable a more flexible deployment and expansion for wireless network applications which require security, privacy and high performance.
*The driver used by the QWA-AC2600 (ath10k) is built in to Ubuntu 17.10 (and later).
