EnGenius Controller Managed Solution
The EnGenius Controller Managed wireless management products can be mixed and matched to create ideal wireless connectivity solutions for hotels, resorts, high schools, universities, corporate campuses, sports stadiums and arenas and for other companies and organizations.
This is a scalable solution for operations that occupy large properties and that need to deploy, monitor, and manage numerous EnGenius EWS Wireless Access Points from one simple and accessible browser-based software platform. EWS Switches can support any small number of EWS Wireless Access Points to several hundred depending on the number of EWS Switches in the network.
The EWS360AP is a high-powered, long-range, ceiling-mount or desktop Dual-Band Wireless AC1750 Indoor Access Point that functions as a stand-alone Access Point or as part of an EnGenius Wireless Management solution for expanding user capacity and extending networks wirelessly within large buildings. It features a high transmit RF power on each frequency band for wall, floor and ceiling penetrating connectivity.
The EWS360AP can operate as a stand-alone Access Point connecting to third-party PoE-capable switches but more control and versatile management of the Access Point is achievable when it is part of an EnGenius Wireless Network Management solution because the AP includes firmware that enables it to be immediately discovered, configured, monitored and managed from a compatible EWS Series PoE+ Switch (EWS5912FP, EWS7928FP or EWS7952FP). This capability enables IT managers to deploy and manage up to 50 EWS360APs from an EWS Series Switch allowing for simplified management from one browser-based interface including simultaneous firmware upgrades, clustering, traffic monitoring, bandwidth steering and many other features that can be reset or reconfigured from the convenience of the IT manager’s desktop.
Operating in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency spectrums and supporting 802.11a/b/g/n and ac (draft) standards the EWS360AP features wireless speeds up to 450 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz radio and up to 1300 Mbps on the 5 GHz radio, a Gigabit port for connecting to 802.3at-capable PoE Switches, and an enhanced receive sensitivity MIMO (Multiple In/Multiple Out) antenna array. As a result, the EWS360AP is ideal for spacious environments such as large homes, small and medium-sized businesses, multiple-floor offices, hotels, hospitals, and other multi-floor buildings.
As the EWS360AP is designed for deployments on ceilings where power outlets may be scarce, it also comes equipped with PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) IEEE 802.3at for use with an 802.3at-capable PoE injector or 802.3at-capable PoE Switches, drawing up to 22 watts of power.
Paired with other EWS Access Points and Switches, the EWS360AP helps to make managing a network easier with its standardized GUI. To protect sensitive data during wireless transmissions, the EWS360AP offers different industry-standard encryption settings for wireless transmissions, including WEP, WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, WPA-PSK Mixed, WPA Enterprise, WPA2 Enterprise, and WPA2 Mixed Enterprise.. It also includes MAC address filtering to allow network administrators to offer network access only to verified computers and devices based on their MAC addresses.
Key Features / Benefits:
+ Access Point
Can be configured, managed and monitored with several EWS Series Access Points from the browser-based interface of one Neutron Series Wireless Management PoE+ Switch. After a Neutron Series PoE+ Switch discovers the EWS360AP it can be "added" and set to be "managed" by the Switch. The EnGenius Wireless Management solution supports bulk firmware upgrades and other features that can be set and managed across deployed EWS Series Access Points simultaneously.
+ Wireless Speeds
Up to 450 Mbps on the 2.4 band and up to 1300 Mbps on the 5 GHz band for faster file transfers and smoother video streaming.
+ Dual-Band for Expanded User Capacity
802.11ac concurrent dual-band operation in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz
Can support up to 100+ users (1)
+ Three Stream
Increased throughput for better performance over Dual Stream Access Points with optimized throughput on the 5 GHz band for bandwidth intensive applications like HD video.
+ High Power, Long-Range and Multiple Floor Penetration
High transmit power on each band provides more than twice the wireless coverage over mainstream competitors and enables the wireless signal for faster connectivity to client devices and enables the wireless signal to penetrate floors, ceilings, and walls. Internal MIMO antenna array provides better reception and performance as clients change their orientation.
+ Band Steering
Automatically detects dual-band client devices in the network and shifts their traffic to the wider and less congested 5 GHz frequency band in order to minimize congestion on the 2.4 GHz in an effort to optimize overall bandwidth traffic on the network.
+ Seamless Roaming, Fast Handover
Keeps client devices connected as they roam within the network.
+ Wireless Traffic Shaping
Gives IT managers the ability to restrict bandwidth on each frequency as necessary.
+ SSID-to-VLAN Tagging
Can be configured to broadcast up to 16 SSIDs (8 SSIDs per frequency band). Each SSID can be tagged to a specified network VLAN for different user access tiers based on established access rights.
1- User capacity performance results may vary based on topology configuration, structural and architectural elements, environmental factors, type of data traffic, RF capabilities of client devices, distance, RF interference in the operating environment and other factors.
