The ENH1750EXT marks a new speed and performance breakthrough for Outdoor Wireless Access Points. Wireless users with 802.11ac laptops, tablets and other devices, who need to stream HD video or transfer large files will find this powerful AC Access Point more than up to those tasks. The ENH1750EXT is an 802.11ac 3x3 Dual Band high-powered, long-range, Mesh-capable
Wireless Ruggedized Outdoor Access Point with speeds up to 1300 Mbps on 5 GHz and up to 450 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band. It can be configured as an Access Point, Mesh (on 2.4 GHz), or WDS (AP, Station, & Bridge) for customized deployment scenarios. The ENH1750EXT is designed to operate in a variety of outdoor environments and demanding business applications, making its
high-powered, long-range characteristics a cost-effective alternative to ordinary Access Points that don't have the range and reach to connect to a growing number of wireless users who wish to connect to an outdoor network.
Under AP Mesh mode (in 2.4 GHz), the ENH1750EXT Wireless Outdoor Access Point can be used as a central connection hub for stations or clients that support IEEE 802.11b/g/n networks. Under this mode, the ENH1750EXT can be configured with the
same Mesh SSID and security password in order to associate with other ENH1750EXTs as well as connect with clients under the same SSID and security encryption signatures. While the ENH1750EXT is backwards compatible with previous 802.11a/b/g and n
standards its 5 GHz band utilizes Quantum Beam™ which finds the most efficient signal path to AC compatible wireless devices delivering data at nearly 3x faster than Wireless N. The AP's Band Steering feature shifts Dual Band-capable clients to 5 GHz from the 2.4 GHz band, helping to relieve network congestion and maintain optimal data traffic speeds. This means that sensitive applications such as IP camera streams, VoIP (Voice over IP), HD video streaming and large file transfers perform with improved quality and reliability. The ENH1750EXT is easy to install in virtually any location as well with its included PoE (Power over Ethernet) injector for quick outdoor installation. The Access Point's internal electronics have been mounted in an IP68-rated enclosure, one of the highest waterproof and dustproof ratings available, designed to withstand extreme environmental conditions including severe and prolonged exposure to sunlight, extreme cold, frost, snow, rainfall, hail and humidity. The housing of the Access Point also has been manufactured to repel ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. These protective measures make the ENH1750EXT an ideal outdoor wireless solution for virtually any locale or any venue including ski and beach resorts, sports arenas, college and corporate campuses, indoor industrial environments, and businesses located in snowy, rainy, and arid climates.
The ENH1750EXT's external MIMO antenna array is comprised of three (3) detachable 5 dBi high gain antennas for the 2.4 GHz radio and three (3) detachable 7 dBi high-gain antennas for the 5 GHz radio. This combination of high transmit power, enhanced receive sensitivity, and six (6) high gain antennas results in long range connectivity to client devices and in some venues can minimize the number of Access Points necessary for a deployment.
For secure network configurations, the ENH1750EXT includes wireless encryption standards such as Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK) Encryption and IEEE 802.1X with RADIUS. MAC Address Filtering is also included allowing network administrators to allow or deny network access to clients devices (computers, tablet PCs, NAS, smartphones, etc.) according to their MAC addresses.
With EnGenius' EZ Controller™ Management Software, units that have already been deployed on rooftops or other difficult to access locations and other EnGenius APs or Client Bridges in the network can be reconfigured to a different operational mode or upgraded remotely without having to manually reconnect to them or re-install them onsite. When used together with its include PoE injector, the ENH1750EXT can support a tethered IP camera on the available 802.3af Gigabit port for security applications such as warehouses, stadiums, airports, corporate campuses and more.
