The EnGenius ENS500EXT N300 Wireless 5 GHz Outdoor Fast Ethernet Access Point provides wireless network connectivity to employees, customers, and students by delivering 802.11a/n signals at a rate of up to 300 Mbps on the 5 GHz frequency spectrum. The ENS500EXT sports two omni-directional MIMO antennas that offer a 5 dBi gain and a 360° coverage area. Furthermore, it comes with two Fast Ethernet ports and powered via the included PoE injector.
EnGenius lets you reconfigure the ENS500EXT as an access point, client bridge, client router, or Wireless Distribution System (WDS) bridge to meet ever-changing network environments. It features a security set that supports WPA/WPA2 Personal and Enterprise encryption, 802.1x RADIUS authentication, hidden SSID, and MAC address filtering. In addition, an IP65-rated housing helps it endure harsh outdoor environments.
The ENS500EXT operates on the 5 GHz band to deliver 300 Mbps wireless speeds utilizing 802.11n standards. Operating in the 5 GHz frequency provides less signal interference in densely populated areas where 2.4 GHz is used.
Designed to perform in harsh environments, the ENS500EXT features an IP65-rated weatherproof and dustproof casing to help withstand outdoor climates and indoor industrial environments.
Extend and Maximize Wireless Coverage Outdoors
Extend the network over short or long-distances with a output power of 26dBm and two removable omni-directional 5 dBi MIMO antennas, which deliver 360° network connectivity to large yards and patios. Pair the ENS500EXT with an optional SA2216 Sector antenna, via its plug-in mounting system, to create a wireless base station with 120° sector-wide coverage, extending the ENS500EXT's reach even farther.
Two Fast Ethernet ports offer greater flexibility for outdoor deployments. Connect and power the AP with the included PoE kit, via the PoE port, in locations where power outlets are scarce or unavailable. You can also utilize the second data port to connect a remote IP surveillance camera, an ancillary access point, or another networked device.
Fast, Flexible Deployment Options
The ENS500EXT features four operation modes: Access Point, Client Bridge/Router, and WDS Bridge mode. This feature makes the ENS500EXT a versatile solution for IT managers or installers who need to update or reconfigure their deployments as the network needs change. Deploy the ENS500EXT quickly and easily with the included PoE kit and flexible mounting hardware options.
The ENS500EXT AP can be remotely managed using SNMP tools or monitored via EnGenius' free downloadable EZ Controller software program. APs deployed on rooftops, poles, or other difficult to access areas are easily reconfigured, upgraded, and monitored remotely utilizing EZ Controller. Map-View allows installers to upload and view a facility floor plan or outdoor area, and identify and monitor all APs on the property. EZ Controller is compatible with Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux systems.
