EnGenius Launches New Outdoor Access Point
a provider of networking and telecommunications equipment, has unveiled a new 802.11ac Wave 2 dual band AC1300 outdoor wireless
access point, the ENS620EXT at this week's InfoComm 2016 conference taking place in Las Vegas.
ENS620EXT uses the latest wireless networking standard, 802.11ac Wave
2, which features multi-user multiple input, multiple output (MU-MIMO)
technology to support greater densities of users and devices. Its dual
band AC1300 capabilities support speeds up to 400 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz
band and up to 867 Mbps on the 5 GHz band. An IP55-rated weatherproof
and dustproof enclosure protects it from prolonged exposure to
sunlight, extreme cold, rain, heat and humidity.
Other key features of the ENS620EXT include:
technology, which optimizes antenna signals and reception in crowded
environments to focus the signal directly to client devices;
gigabit Ethernet (GigE) ports with link aggregation support to provide
a maximum bandwidth capacity of two Gbps for bandwidth-heavy
applications, such as video, voice and surveillance;
- Gigabit power-over-Ethernet (PoE) port for installation in locations with limited access to power outlets;
detachable, omni-directional, 5 dBi, MU-MIMO, SMA-type antennas and 27
dBm output power to provide 360-degree outdoor coverage.
ENS620EXT wireless access point will be available beginning in July
2016 with an suggested retail price of $229.00 in North America. Further information
about the ENS620EXT can be found on EnGenius Technologies' site.
