EnGenius Cloud Managed Solution

The EnGenius Cloud Managed Solution product range is designed to provide top-level wireless installations that can be easily managed and monitored remotely across many different locations.

It allows for simple management of multiple sites without the requirement for expensive on-site support workers, intuitive real-time troubleshooting with powerful tools and simultaneous remote firmware upgrading and updating. EnGenius Cloud deployments can be managed via a comprehensive web interface and via an easy-to-use mobile app.

The EnGenius Cloud Managed Solution range is ultimately a great system for standard single-site business, hotels, schools and arenas as well as for wider-scope network management companies operating across a wide area of sites.


The ECW160 is a powerful and reasonably priced Wireless Access Point (WAP), providing Wave 2 11ac signals of up to 1.3Gbps speeds and a vast user capacity with enhanced connectivity to each client. As a Mu-MIMO device, it is also able to provide a performance 30% faster than many other traditional 3x3 WAPs.

The ECW160 is extremely flexible, able to be powered by either a standard 12v DC PSU or via gigabit 802.3af POE – this allows for adaptability and creativity for the physical installation of the device. This flexibility extends into how it can be wall-mounted as well as its various operation modes, including WDS modes such as WDS Access Point and WDS Station for creating wireless bridges between devices without having to rely purely on ethernet-cable connections.

Most importantly, when the ECW160 is combined with an EnGenius Cloud managed switch, it creates a cloud-managed network that can be configured and monitored remotely for the maximum possible ease and convenience of the network administrator. No longer will you have to physically visit faraway locations to troubleshoot and support wireless network system, this can now all be done centrally via an intuitive interface. This, in combination with devices modern and powerful features and speeds, results in a truly exceptional Wireless Access Point for your WiFi installation.

Supports Facebook and Instagram Wifi.
