The EnGenius EAP350 is a 2.4GHz Wireless-N Indoor Access Point that features 800mW transmit power for long range coverage, wireless speeds up to 300Mbps and a Gigabit port for connecting to a switch or router. It’s an ideal solution for expanding an existing network and increasing bandwidth to support additional users.
This high-powered Access Point/WDS/Repeater is designed for extending networks within large or multi-story buildings or expansive, client-intensive facilities like hotels, resorts, hospitals, office buildings, universities or other multi-building campus facilities that need to offer employees, guests, staff or students access to network resources like printers, content or the Internet.
The EAP350 is designed to appear as a smoke detector and thus unobtrusively blend in with other common building infrastructure appliances. The Access Point’s transmit power of 800mW (up to 29dBm) delivers longer range than ordinary access points in its class. The EAP350 can be configured to operate in several different modes – as a Wireless-N Access Point, a WDS Access Point, or Repeater. It operates in the 2.4GHz frequency spectrum supporting the 802.11b/g/n standards.
The EAP350’s robust transmit power, enhanced receive sensitivity and its MIMO (Multiple In/Multiple Out) antenna array extends wireless coverage and enhances connectivity to client devices even in areas where connections have been previously challenging or non-existent. This capability also helps to reduce the number of Access Points needed to deploy over large properties and helps to eliminate the need for roaming clients to constantly re-associate to different APs in the building or throughout the property.
The EAP’s Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000) port offers greater bandwidth capacity and faster data transfers and is ideal for accommodating users on the network who are engaged in HD video streaming or online gaming. For deployments on ceilings or in crawlspaces where power outlets may be scarce, the EAP350 is also PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) capable when used with a PoE injector, like the 802.3af compliant EnGenius EPE5818Gaf.
The EAP350 also features industry standard wireless network encryption settings, like WEP, and WPA/WPA2, to protect the network from unauthorized access. For small-to-medium-sized office or larger corporate deployments the EAP350 also can be configured with MAC address filtering so only known and MAC address recognized client devices can access the network and unauthorized client devices can be isolated.
