The Neutron Series Wireless Managed Solution from top Far Eastern WiFi manufacturer EnGenius has been very well received in the UK market since it was made available in 2014. The Neutron Series is exclusively distributed in the UK by Yorkshire based Solwise Ltd.
Steve Mace, Technical Director at Solwise, commented ‘We have been extremely pleased with the uptake of the Neutron Series in particular in the Education Sector. After exhibiting at the BETT Show in January we found there are many schools that can’t afford the very high end managed solutions and this makes the EnGenius solution a good alternative with its superb level of specification and very competitive price point.’

As the UK distributor for the EnGenius Neutron Managed Wireless Solution Solwise are pleased to introduce the free cloud management software EZMaster.
EZMaster is a software package that allows users to remotely manage and control the EnGenius Neutron system via a web browser interface. One of the key features is the ability to manage multiple controller plus access points nodes under a single project. So, for example, if you have a site using two controllers then you can ‘join’ the management under a single ‘project’ so both controllers and their associated access points can be managed under a single ‘project’. EZMaster also allows you to centrally manage multiple remote ‘projects’ located at different sites; ideal if you have several branch offices. EZMaster will work over site-to-site VPN links or over the internet and the software package can be run on a standard Windows or Linux system. You can even run EZMaster on a third party VMWare platform using an off site server (for example using Amazons EC2 platform). All this and it is FREE!!
* Multiple site controllers managed under a single project
* Works across different subnets so it’s work over a VPN connection
* Works across the internet so as long as both the server and remote ends have internet access then EZMaster will work
* Simple browser interface
* Flexible VMWare package that works Windows or Linux or a 3rd party VM platform
* It’s free!!

To compliment EZMaster, EnGenius have also released new firmware for the Neutron controllers and access points giving extra features such as sophisticated auto-channel and RF power control and also guest portal functions – users can simply update their system using the auto-firmware update on the controller status page to download and install the new features.
