EnGenius Makes Wireless Network Deployment, Management Simple with Launch of Neutron Series Wireless Management Solution

COSTA MESA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

EnGenius Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance, versatile networking and telecommunications solutions for businesses and consumers, today announced the availability of the new Neutron Series Wireless Management Solution Platform. The Neutron Series of Wireless Management Switches and Managed Indoor Wireless Access Points provide a scalable wireless network infrastructure that is easy to deploy, monitor and manage over large properties such as hotels, resorts, sports arenas and stadiums, shopping malls, schools and universities, and even large luxury residential or rural properties.

Designed for Easy Wireless Network Deployment and Centralized Management

The new Neutron series of Gigabit PoE+ Wireless Management Switches enables IT managers to manage multiple EnGenius Neutron Series Managed Wireless Access Points from a powerful, intuitive browser-based software platform. In addition to delivering a class-leading price-to-performance ratio, the Neutron Series incorporates features such as automatic access point discovery and provisioning for ease-of-deployment, wired and wireless network monitoring to provide real-time network status, and wireless network management to maximize network uptime and performance.

Scalable PoE-Enabled Solution Lowers Cost of Deployment, Allows Rapid Growth

Available in 8-, 24-, and 48-port models, each Neutron Series Switch features Gigabit Ethernet ports with IEEE802.3at/af PoE+ support to deliver up to 30 watts per port enabling the quick and easy deployment of PoE-enabled devices including access points, IP Cameras, and VoIP phones where power outlets are limited or non-existent. The 24- and 48-port Switches can each control up to 50 Neutron Series Managed Access Points and all EWS Switches feature SFP slots for fiber uplinks or redundancy.

Enterprise-Class Network Management Without the Enterprise Cost-of-Ownership

The Neutron Series Wireless Management Switches, which all provide fully-managed switching capabilities, incorporate intuitive, powerful network management software with a browser-based graphical user interface (GUI) to make network management easy. The robust security feature set includes SSID-to-VLAN tagging, RADIUS authentication, and IGMP Snooping features for priority-based applications such as IP surveillance, video surveillance, and VoIP.

Unlike other enterprise-class solutions, the Nutron Series does not require any recurring license or subscription fees. This enables the Neutron Series to deliver the performance of an enterprise-class managed wireless infrastructure while providing a level of affordability and low total cost of ownership that makes it an ideal solution for organizations with constrained budgets.

"The launch of the Neutron Series marks an exciting transformative milestone for our company, our customers and reseller partners, as we have transitioned from a product company to a networking solutions company," explained Brian Watt, Product Marketing Manager at EnGenius. "EnGenius has already established a strong reputation for the quality, performance and reliability with our business-class indoor and outdoor wireless networking products. With the launch of the Neutron Series, we're now able to offer the market a complete, easy-to-manage, scalable network infrastructure solution that delivers on the promise of the EnGenius brand to deliver class-leading performance and feature sets at an affordable price point. We've heard from IT managers and from the VAR community that serves them, and we believe the Neutron Series is what they've been looking for."
