EnGenius EnJet - Overview
The Dilemma of Outdoor WiFi Deployment
Traditional Wi-Fi utilizes the CSMA/CA protocol - collision avoidance before transmitting. When connecting, each access point first detects potential collisions that interrupt transmissions. This latency cost increases exponentially with the growth of your network.
Latency from collision avoidance worsens with distance
Significant drops in throughput as number of stations increase
EnJet – Solve transmission latency
EnJet features PtP and PtMP technology, which lets your network overcome the latency of the CSMA/CA protocol design. Access points form a well-ordered flow of transmissions based on predefined times slots. Like cars, traffic is able flow efficiently when an external coordination mechanism is present (traffic lights) and can come to a sudden halt when it is not.
Collision avoidance causes latency
Lack of cooperation increases commute times for each car
Time-based solution brings efficiency
Traffic flows efficiently when drivers are directed in different time slot
How EnJet Improves Outdoor Wi-Fi
When an outdoor network spans large distances, its access points or stations are unable to detect each other’s transmissions. Frequent collisions will occur when multiple points transmit simultaneously. EnJet features PtP and PtMP technology, which allocates transmissions from remote locations into slots for efficient time-based management.
The Power of EnGenius EnJet
Achieve Maximum Throughput in Long Distances
By assigning a pre-determined time slot to each connected station, EnJet achieves fast, stable throughput in distance scenarios and avoids the exponentially increasing latency and lower throughput found in networks using traditional CSMA.
Keep Consistent at Scale
EnJet offers sustained high performance by coordinating the order of data transmissions from multiple sources. Increasing the number of access points/stations in your network does not dramatically diminish performance.
Prioritize Your Important Data
EnJet achieves the speed your network needs for its most critical applications. For example, real-time voice transmissions are latency-intensive and slotted at a higher priority than video recordings. Both receive higher priority than HTML pages.
