COSTA MESA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EnGenius Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance, versatile networking and telecommunications solutions for businesses and consumers, announced that its Electron Series ENS1750 Dual Band Wireless AC1750 Outdoor Access Point has been awarded the coveted Golden Tachometer award by Benchmark Reviews in a recent review of the business-class wireless access point.
The Golden Tachometer designation is awarded to products that receive excellent ratings, based upon a scale ranging from one to ten, in the areas of performance, appearance, construction, functionality, and value. The ENS1750, bolstered by perfect ratings in the areas of appearance and value, received an overall score of 9.1 out of 10 denoting “Excellence Achievement” to earn the product the Benchmark Reviews Golden Tachometer Award.

“It is a bit pricey when compared to most entry-level based access points, but with such a large portfolio of features it clearly puts itself in a category above most AC1750,” wrote Julian Duque who reviewed the product for Benchmark Reviews. “In my opinion the ENS1750 is a very refined version of the AC1750 standard, with IP-55 rating, and a valuable implementation for businesses in the need of an excellent, yet inexpensive 802.11ac access point.”
The ENS1750, which is housed in a waterproof IP55-rated housing for deployment in nearly any environment, provides speeds up to 1300 Mbps on the 5 GHz band and 450 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band. The access point combines high output power with high-gain, 5 dBi omni-directional internal antennas (3 transmit and 3 receive) to deliver higher signal strength and sensitivity than other access points enabling connectivity over longer ranges and reducing the number of access points required in a deployment.
One Gigabit port enables the ENS1750 to connect to 802.3at-capable PoE switches making it easy and convenient to mount in high locations where power outlets may be scarce while a second Gigabit port provides data pass-through. For easy monitoring and maintenance after deployment on rooftops and other hard to reach places, users can monitor the ENS1750 remotely with SNMP-based EZ Controller wireless access point software for Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux (available online as a free download).
The ENS1750, which supports access point and WDS (AP and Bridge) modes, utilizes band steering to automatically detect dual band clients and move them from the 2.4 GHz band to the 5 GHz band allowing applications such as video streaming to flow more easily and helping to eliminate traffic congestion on the 2.4 GHz band. The access point can be configured to broadcast up to sixteen (16) SSIDs (eight SSIDs per band). Each SSID can be tagged to a specified company network VLAN for different user access based on established access rights. Other security features include WEP Encryption, WPA/WPA2 Enterprise, and MAC address filtering.
