Taipei, Taiwan (PRWEB) January 14, 2014
4ipnet, a leading provider of competitive and comprehensive wireless LAN solutions for meeting the Wi-Fi demands of tomorrow, today announced the EAP701, a compact, fully-featured, and affordable enterprise-grade 802.11n access point. No effort was spared to ensure that despite the unassuming form factor, the EAP701 provides reliable, secure, and high-performance Wi-Fi with a complete centralized management suite.
One of the major selling points of the EAP701 is its compact size and pearl-white inconspicuous design, making it ideal for décor-sensitive indoor environments such as hotel rooms or offices, and in selected countries, allows it to be installed directly into existing standard-sized outlet boxes. To further reduce installation costs and increase deployment flexibility, the EAP701 supports 802.3af PoE via either a standard RJ-45 port or an alternate 110 punch down block. Finally, the two additional Ethernet ports enables the access point to act as a unified point of access for both wireless and wired devices – IP-based systems such as VoIP phones and IPTVs can be directly connected without adding external switches. Along with the automatic AP provisioning capability of 4ipnet wireless LAN controllers, enterprise WLAN deployments that are traditionally complex and expensive can be notably simplified.
When it comes to performance, the EAP701’s QoS features ensure that mission-critical applications run smoothly and complaints are minimized. For example, Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) increases the performance of differentiated wireless traffic such as audio, video, and voice. Furthermore, packet collisions can be reduced using the EAP701’s Layer 2 Firewall and Multicast-to-Unicast Conversion features, which prevents unnecessary packets from being transmitted onto the wireless medium. When combined with the 4ipnet WHG-series controller’s bandwidth control and traffic prioritization features, organizations can ensure network reliability and achieve a significant amount of cost-savings that would otherwise be spent on maintenance and troubleshooting.
Cost-minded enterprises and organizations will find that under the same budget, the EAP701 can provide increased network reliability and performance, for the reasons listed below:
1. Extremely competitive pricing enables more APs to be deployed covering the same area.
2. Densely deployed APs reduces the number of devices contending for airtime in the same channel, minimizing collisions and increasing overall network throughput. Also, the risk of individual APs being overloaded is substantially reduced.
3. Client devices can be in a closer proximity to their respective APs, mitigating the effect of poor connectivity that is caused when clients are located at the coverage cell’s edge.
The newest addition to 4ipnet’s product portfolio, the EAP701 is a compact and powerful enterprise-grade access point that integrates seamlessly with 4ipnet wireless LAN controllers.
Advanced functionality such as fine-grained AP and user management greatly reduces the workload of IT staff and network administrators, while standards-based authentication and encryption safeguards critical network resources. With the EAP701, 4ipnet offers a quintessential cost-effective managed Wi-Fi solution – simplified deployment, increased reliability, and maximized performance.
