COSTA MESA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EnGenius Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance, versatile networking and telecommunications solutions for businesses and consumers, has extended the capabilities of their Neutron Series Wireless Management Solution far beyond the confines of building walls with the launch of the EWS860AP 802.11ac 3x3 Dual Band High-Powered, Long-Range Wireless Managed Outdoor Access Point.
A New Speed and Performance Breakthrough for Ruggedized Outdoor Wireless Managed Access Points
The EWS860AP 802.11ac Managed 3x3 Dual Band Outdoor Ruggedized Wireless Access Point delivers speeds up to 1,300 Mbps on 5 GHz and up to 450 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz bands to support high-bandwidth applications in high-density outdoor environments such as outdoor patios, resort areas, and campus settings. Encased in an IP68-rated waterproof housing and equipped with a high-gain MIMO antenna array, the versatile EWS860AP provides fast, reliable connectivity in a variety of harsh outdoor environments.
The EWS860AP can operate as a standalone access point connecting to any PoE-capable switches, but its versatility is maximized when deployed as part of an EnGenius Neutron Series WLAN Management solution, enabling it to be immediately discovered, configured, monitored, and managed from a compatible Neutron Series PoE+ controller switch. Up to 50 EWS860APs can be deployed and managed using a 24- or 48-port Neutron Series controller switch, enabling simplified management from one browser based interface for simultaneous firmware upgrades, clustering, traffic monitoring, bandwidth steering, and many other features. When used with a Neutron Series Controller Switch, new firmware versions for the Neutron Series access points are automatically discovered on the EnGenius server. Using the One-Click Update feature in the Neutron Series Controller switches, IT managers can easily ensure that all of the Neutron Series access points are always up-to-date with the latest firmware versions.
Equipped with PoE (Power over Ethernet) injector for quick outdoor installation, the EWS860AP provides secure network configurations with support for wireless encryption standards such as Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK) Encryption and IEEE 802.1X with RADIUS. MAC Address Filtering is also included allowing network administrators to allow or deny network access to devices based upon client devices’ MAC addresses.
The EWS860AP is covered by a one-year limited warranty and is available via authorized retailers, distributors and value-added resellers in North America at a MSRP of $1,190.
Easily Manage Multiple Neutron Series Controller Switches in Multiple Locations with Free EnGenius Navigator
Using the new EnGenius Navigator, which is available as a free download for Windows OS from the EnGenius website, deploying and managing large networks with multiple Neutron Series Wireless Management Controller Switches has become easy. IT managers and network administrators can now access and manage multiple Neutron Series Switches in single or multiple locations. Ideal for managed service providers, VARs, and system integrators, EnGenius Navigator enables users to instantly view, access and manage every switch and access point in their network, even over multiple sites, enabling them to manage multiple sites from a single, intuitive browser-based GUI.
“The addition of the new outdoor access point and EnGenius Navigator to our existing Neutron Series WLAN Management Solution provides even greater capabilities to small and growing businesses,” explained Eric Chen, Product Manager at EnGenius. “The ability of businesses to easily deploy, and extend a fast, reliable managed wireless network to large open outdoor areas can improve employee and staff productivity while vastly increasing their customers’ experience. For solution providers or large network deployments, the Navigator software enables network administrators to manage multiple networks at multiple sites from a single location, delivering performance and versatility while lowering both CAPEX and OPEX.”
