Costa Mesa, CA (PRWEB) October 11, 2011
EnGenius® Technologies, Inc., the leader in long-range Wireless-N networking solutions for homes and businesses, today launched the newest members of their industry-leading family of long-range wireless networking solutions – the EAP300 and EAP150 Business-Class Indoor Long-Range Wireless-N Access Point/WDS Bridge/WDS AP.
Designed to enable the deployment of affordable, high-performance indoor wireless network infrastructures in businesses of all sizes, the EAP300 and EAP150 are versatile high-power products that deliver fast data speeds over a greater coverage area to improve network access throughout the facility while reducing capital expenditures. The versatile products can be configured to function as 802.11b/g/n access points, Wireless Distribution System (WDS) bridges, or as WDS access points.
The EAP300 and EAP150 deliver data speeds up to 300Mbps and feature high power outputs of up to 800mW and 400mW, respectively, to provide faster speeds over longer ranges than competing solutions. The EAP300 and EAP150, which feature an unobtrusive compact “smoke detector” design for easy mounting on the wall or ceiling, support Power-over-Ethernet and leverage an internal 5dBi antenna which is configured and optimized for maximum RF performance.
“These new products raise the bar in wireless networking solutions for business applications,” explained Eric Chen, Product Manager at EnGenius Technologies. “Today’s increasingly difficult environment demands that businesses deploy high-performance wireless network infrastructures that support the simultaneous needs of staff, clients and customers while, at the same time, maintaining a level of versatility and security that enable the network to change to meet future requirements. The EAP300 and EAP150 do all of this while leveraging the combination of a larger coverage area and lower price point that enables businesses to maximize network availability and provide better performance at a lower cost.”
About the EAP300/EAP150 Wireless-N Access Points
The EAP300 and EAP150 Business Class Indoor Long Range Wireless-N Access Point/WDS Bridge/WDS AP are long-range, high-speed, high-power wireless networking solutions designed for maximum coverage and data throughput speeds.
The versatile products can be configured to operate as an 802.11b/g/n wireless access point or multiple units can be interconnected together using WDS to deliver maximum coverage over large areas such as warehouses and resorts. In addition, the EAP300 and EAP150 are 802.3AF Power-over-Ethernet compatible for ease-of-deployment eliminating the need to place the device near a power outlet.
The EAP300 and EAP150, which support SNMP and can be configured via a web-based GUI or Telnet, incorporate a robust feature set including: support for up to four BSSIDs, DHCP server, SSID to VLAN mapping for up to four VLANs, Spanning Tree, VPN pass-through, and Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM).
“We love this product. It looks sleek, operates perfectly and is a great option for anyone who is not looking for a clunky access point like other vendors provide. Too many other access points sit on a shelf or desk and never truly provide 100% of their potential due to interference or obstruction. The concept that an Access Point does not have to sit next to your computer to be functional is a leap forward in providing high-speed wireless networking for your business. The EAP300 is wall mounted and is utilized by several devices to leverage the high speed Wi-Fi. The EAP300 gives us the freedom to experience rich content at high speeds,” says Paul Hurst, Network Administrator, City of Airdrie, Alberta, Canada
The comprehensive set of security features includes: WEP, WPA Personal, WPA Enterprise, 802.1x authentication, SSID broadcast enable/disable, MAC address filtering, WLAN L2 isolation, and Wireless STA (client).
The EAP300 and EAP150 are backed by a one-year warranty and are now available in North America at list prices of $99 USD and $79 USD respectively via authorized EnGenius Technologies distributors and value-added resellers, respectively.
