“The EAP350 access point has unique capabilities to provide 2x2 802.11n MIMO with Gigabit Ethernet output and ultra-high transmit power,” stated Jason Hintersteiner, vice president of technology for Spot On Networks.
(PRWEB) December 23, 2011
EnGenius® Technologies, Inc., the leader in long-range wireless networking solutions for homes and businesses, today launched the EAP350 Business-Class Indoor, Long-Range, Wireless-N Gigabit Access Point. The EAP350, which can operate in WDS Bridge or WDS Access Point mode, is ideal for adding long-range wireless coverage or expanding bandwidth to an existing wired or wireless network. The EAP350 delivers high-power and high-speeds to provide reliable, fast wireless network connectivity over large areas or in multi-story buildings.
The high-performance Wireless-N EAP350, which features a high transmit power of up to 29dBm to provide greater signal coverage in the Wireless-N 2.4GHz frequency spectrum than competing products 802.11n, also combines a Gigabit Ethernet LAN interface to maximize received data throughput at up to 1000Mbps wired speeds from users communicating wirelessly at speeds up to 300Mbps. Housed in a compact “smoke detector” form factor, the internal 5dBi antenna is optimized to deliver maximum RF performance in demanding hotel, hospital or office building environments.
The EAP350 also supports 802.3af Power-over-Ethernet for ease of deployment on ceilings or in crawlspaces where power outlets may not be available. This high-powered AP also includes a host of features to protect network resources and ensure secure communication with client devices WPA and WPA2 encryption, 802.1q mapping of SSIDs, and support for up to four VLANs.
“The EAP350 access point has unique capabilities to provide 2x2 802.11n MIMO with Gigabit Ethernet output and ultra-high transmit power,” stated Jason Hintersteiner, vice president of technology for Spot On Networks. “These features make it the most capable and cost-effective solution for building leading-edge Wi-Fi networks to support Internet data, surveillance and smart-building energy management applications in apartment buildings, hotels and other multi-dwelling unit environments.”
“The demands on the wireless network are increasing at an exponential rate with the rapid adoption of cost-saving, productivity-enhancing network-enabled communication applications which are moving off of the desktop and being accessed through a growing number of mobile devices including laptops, tablets and smartphones,” explained Eric Chen, Product Manager at EnGenius Technologies. “Not only does the wireless network have to deliver the speeds to support these applications, but it has to provide pervasive coverage throughout the property to ensure users a seamless experience regardless of where they are on the property. The EAP350 offers the versatility and the performance that enables a business to deploy a secure, high-performance wireless infrastructure that adds onto an existing wired network or enhances the coverage and performance of an existing wireless deployment. The extended range delivered by the EAP350 can actually reduce the number of units needed to cover a large area providing the added benefits of simplifying deployment and reducing capital expenditures.”
About the EAP350 Business Class, Indoor Wireless-N Gigabit Access Point
The EAP350 Business Class, Indoor, Long-Range Wireless-N Gigabit Access Point/WDS Bridge/WDS Access Point features a 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN port and supports the 2.4GHz 802.11b/g/n wireless standard to deliver wireless speeds up to 300Mbps. QoS (WMM) ensures reliable and jitter-free multimedia streaming.
Easily configured and managed via a web-based, SNMP or command line interface, the EAP350 is easy to deploy with support for 802.3AF PoE which enables placement of the access point in ceilings and other areas where power outlets are not available.
The versatile EAP350, which can operate as an access point, WDS bridge or WDS access point, supports up to four BSSIDs and incorporates a host of security features including: WEP, WPA Personal, WPA Enterprise, 802.1x authentication, SSID broadcast disable, MAC address filtering, WLAN L2 isolation, and Wireless STA (client) connected list.
The EAP350 is backed by a one-year warranty and is available in North America at an MSRP of $119 USD via authorized EnGenius Technologies distributors and value-added resellers, respectively.
