New Dual Band, High-Powered, Wall- and Floor-Penetrating Access Point from EnGenius Technologies Features Seamless Roaming and N900 Speeds
COSTA MESA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Technologies, Inc., the leader in long-range wired wireless
networking solutions for homes and businesses, today announced
availability of its new EAP900H
High-Powered Dual Band N900 Indoor Access
Point for hotels, resorts, hospitals, office buildings,
universities, or other multi-building campus environments.
The EAP900H supports large file transfers and HD media streaming, as
well as PMKSA support that ensures seamless handovers of a client
device's active sessions from one EAP900H access point to another to
maintain a seamless, reliable connection to the network so hotel guests,
patrons, employees, doctors, staff and others can maintain constant
connection and watch video or transfer files without interruption no
matter where they roam within a large, multi-story facility.
The EAP900H is a concurrent dual band 2.4 + 5 GHz wireless N900 indoor
access point that supports 802.11a/b/g/n standards. The EAP900H is an
ideal solution for expanding an existing network, delivering wireless
speeds up to 450 Mbps on each frequency band and featuring a Gigabit
port to offer greater bandwidth capacity and faster data transfers
throughout the network. The combination of high transmit RF power and an
internal MIMO antenna array for enhanced receive sensitivity extends
wireless coverage and enhances connectivity to client devices, such as
wireless laptops, tablets and smartphones, in areas where connections
have previously been challenging or non-existent.
Featuring an aesthetic low-profile smoke detector design, the EAP900H
mounts easily on a ceiling and unobtrusively blends in with other common
building infrastructure appliances. Optimized for use with EnGenius' new
line of Gigabit PoE Smart Switches, the EAP900H is PoE-capable which
enables it to be deployed in areas where power outlets are carce or not
available. The versatile EAP900H, which can be configured to operate as
a dual-band wireless access point, WDS bridge, or WDS access point, can
be easily managed with the included EnGenius Zone Controller access
point management software.
Concurrent Dual Band 450 + 450Mbps Support - Delivers
concurrent 802.11n dual radio operation on both 2.4GHz and 5 GHz
frequency bands with data speeds up to 450 Mbps on each for maximum
wireless throughput performance. Band steering optimizes connectivity
and wireless speeds for client devices by steering dual band or 5
GHz-capable client devices to the 5 GHz band and alleviating network
traffic congestion often found on the 2.4 GHz band.
Long Range - High RF transmit power output up to 28 dBm (News - Alert),
combined with 3 x 3 stream MIMO and six high-gain, internal 5 dBi
antennas, maximizes RF performance and provides more than twice the
Wi-Fi coverage of mainstream competing products.
Seamless Roaming - Supports PMKSA that distributes and caches a
designated WPA/WPA2-Enterprise encryption key to neighboring EAP
access points to ensure a seamless handover of the client from one EAP
access point to the next to maintain a seamless, reliable connection
to the network.
Multiple Operating Modes - Can be configured to work as a
dual-band wireless access point, WDS bridge, or WDS access point, for
802.3at PoE Compatible - Compatible for use with
802.3at-capable PoE switches or injectors, EAP900H draws up to 25
watts of power and can be deployed in areas where power outlets are
Simple Management - SNMP-based wireless access point management
software provides a robust suite of tools for configuring, controlling
and monitoring the EAP900H, and other compatible EnGenius access
points, from one central location.
MSSID and VLAN Support - Supports up to eight BSSIDs with
802.1q VLAN tagging enabling users to provide employees and guests
with access to the Internet while controlling access to network
connected resources to protect sensitive data or resources.
"The new EAP900H is a cost-effective solution for adding capacity and
capability to an existing network infrastructure that is tasked with
supporting a large number of client devices," explained Eric Chen,
Product Marketing Manager for EnGenius. "The concurrent dual-band
capability of the EAP900H not only expands the client capacity of the
network, but it also enables IT administrators to maximize the
performance of high-priority traffic and bandwidth-intensive
applications by pushing them to the less-used 5 GHz band."
The new EnGenius EAP900H High-Powered Dual Band N900 Indoor Access Point (News - Alert)
is covered by a one-year limited warranty and is available in North
America at a list price of $299 via authorized retailers, distributors
and value-added resellers. For more information on EnGenius Technologies (News - Alert)
