Description: EnGenius Neutron Series EWS660AP - Wireless access point - 802.11ac (draft) - Wi-Fi - Dual Band
Mfr Part #: EWS660AP
The EWS660AP is a high-powered, long-range, 3x3 Dual Band Neutron Series Managed Wireless solution AC1750 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Outdoor Access Point that functions as a stand-alone Access Point or as part of an EnGenius Neutron Series Wireless Management solution. It features a high transmit RF power for better outdoor signal penetration.
The EWS660AP 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 Neutron Series Wireless Network Management solution because the AP includes firmware that enables it to be immediately discovered, configured, monitored and managed from a compatible Neutron Series PoE+ Switch (EWS5912FP, EWS7928FP or EWS7952FP). This capability enables IT managers to deploy and manage up to 50 EWS660APs from a Neutron 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.
To protect sensitive data during wireless transmissions, the EWS660AP 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.
The EWS660AP is easy to install in virtually any location and its internal electronics have been mounted in an IP65-rated enclosure, one of the highest waterproof and dustproof ratings available, designed to withstand extremely harsh 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 EWS660AP an ideal outdoor wireless solution for virtually any locale or any venue including ski and beach resorts, sports arenas, college and corporate campuses, and businesses located in snowy, rainy, and arid climates.
- Dynamic channel optimization
- Internal high gain antenna
- Includes power adapter or connect via PoE with 802.3at/af switch or Injector
- Band steering shifts Dual Band clients to 5 GHz for better throughput performance
- Fast roaming when used with a RADIUS Server
- Neutron series managed access point
Can be configured, managed and monitored with several Neutron Series Access Points from the browser-based interface of one Neutron Series Wireless Management Layer 2 PoE+ Switch. After a Neutron Series Layer PoE+ Switch discovers the EWS660AP it can be "added" and set to be "managed" by the Switch. The Neutron Wireless Management solution supports bulk firmware upgrades and other features that can be set and managed across deployed Neutron Series Access Points simultaneously.
- Dual band for expanded user capacity
802.11n/ac concurrent Dual Band operation in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands for expanded user capacity. Can support up to 100+ users.
- High power, long-range coverage
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.
- SSID-to-VLAN tagging
Can be configured to broadcast up to eight (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.
- Wireless speeds
Delivers faster file transfers and smoother video streaming with up to 450 Mbps on the 2.4 band and up to 1300 Mbps on the 5 GHz frequency band for faster throughput AC client devices.
- Made for harsh outdoor environments
IP65-rated enclosure, one of the highest waterproof and dustproof ratings available, designed to withstand extremely harsh 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.
- 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.
- Fast roaming when used with a radius server
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.
