The EnGenius ENS500EXT is a high-powered, long-range Wireless N300 Outdoor Access Point delivering data rates up to 300Mbps that operates on the 5GHz band so it avoids the congested wireless traffic from devices on the more commonly used 2.4 GHz frequency band. This makes the ENS500EXT an ideal solution for point-to-multipoint connectivity to 5 GHz wireless client bridges (for example, EnGenius ENS500) and connected IP security cameras in parking lots or garages, or for sending data to outdoor digital signage. It’s also ideal for providing connectivity to a small business network and its Internet connection for restaurant patrons, or for students and employees in educational or corporate campus venues who have 5 GHz-capable devices such as iPads, tablet PCs or laptop computers with embedded dual-band Wi-Fi radios.
ENS500EXT is compliant with the IEEE802.11a/n standards delivering a wireless data rate of up to 300Mbps on the 5 GHz frequency spectrum. It features two omni-directional 5 dBi MIMO (Multiple In/Multiple Out) antennas that coupled with its strong transmit power of up to 400mW make it a compelling performance solution for small and growing businesses at a very affordable price.
ENS500EXT also features a robust security feature set that includes support for WPA/WPA2 Personal and Enterprise encryption, 802.1x RADIUS authentication, hidden SSID and MAC address filtering.
ENS500EXT has an IP65 rated weatherproof housing that ensures continued operation in harsh outdoor environments or in climates of extreme cold, heat or continuous moisture.
