The Neutron Series Wireless Management Solution

The EnGenius Neutron Series of wireless management products can be mixed and matched to create ideal wireless connectivity solutions for hotels, resorts, high schools, universities, corporate campuses, sports stadiums and arenas and for other companies and organizations.

This is a scalable solution for operations that occupy large properties and that need to deploy, monitor, and manage numerous EnGenius EWS Wireless Access Points from one simple and accessible browser-based software platform. EWS Switches can support any small number of EWS Wireless Access Points to several hundred depending on the number of EWS Switches in the network.

The EWS860AP marks a new speed and performance breakthrough for Outdoor Wireless Managed Access Points. Wireless users with 802.11ac laptops, tablets and other devices, who need to stream HD video or transfer large files will find this powerful AC Access Point more than up to those tasks. The EWS860AP is an 802.11ac 3x3 Dual Band high-powered, long-range, Mesh-capable* Wireless Managed Outdoor Access Point with speeds up to 1300 Mbps on 5 GHz and up to 450 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band that functions as part of an EnGenius Neutron Series Wireless Management solution or as a stand-alone Access Point. It can be configured as an Access Point, Mesh (on 2.4 GHz), or WDS (AP, Station, & Bridge) for customized deployment scenarios. The EWS860AP is designed to operate in a variety of outdoor environments and demanding business applications, making its high-powered, long-range characteristics a cost-effective alternative to ordinary Access Points that don’t have the range and reach to connect to a growing number of wireless users who wish to connect to an outdoor network.

Dual Band Operation for Less Congested Networks
2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands for expanded user capacity. Greater number of channels available on the 5 GHz frequency spectrum to support higher bandwidth applications like HD video streaming.

Faster File Transfers and Smoother Video Streaming with 3-Stream
Delivers faster file transfers and smoother video streaming with up to 450 Mbps on the 2.4 band and up to 1300 Mbps on the 5 GHz frequency band for faster throughput AC client devices.

1-Click Access Point Firmware Updates
Controller interface of a Neutron Series EWS Switch includes alerts and lists of available firmware for 1-Click Access Point Firmware Updates to streamline the firmware update process for attached EWS Access Points. With 1-click, Access Points that have been grouped in a cluster can be updated with new firmware simultaneously.


Deploy, Configure, and Manage Them In Clusters in One Network

Can be configured, managed and monitored with several Neutron Series Access Points from the browser-based interface of one Neutron Series Wireless Management Layer 2 PoE+ Switch. After a Neutron Series Layer PoE+ Switch discovers the EWS860AP it can be "added" and set to be "managed" by the Switch. The Neutron Wireless Management solution supports bulk firmware upgrades and other features that can be set and managed across deployed Neutron Series Access Points simultaneously.

Customized Expansive Deployments Scenarios

Can be managed together with up to 50 other Neutron Series Access Points from a 24- or 48-Port Neutron Series Management Switch, enabling a wide range of applications and customized deployment scenarios. Including more Neutron Series Access Points to the network gives administrators the ability and versatility to substantially and rapidly scale their networks and to provide just the right amount of Neutron Series Access Points necessary to provide wireless connectivity or in a part of the network previously unserved at an affordable cost.

Keeps Client Devices Connected As They Roam in the Network

Supports Fast Roaming when used with a RADIUS server.

Band Steering Improves and Optimizes Wireless Traffic

Automatically detects Dual Band client devices in the network and shifts their traffic to the wider and less congested 5 GHz frequency band in order to minimize congestion on the 2.4 GHz in an effort to optimize overall bandwidth traffic on the network.

Endures Harsh Environmental Conditions

IP68-rated enclosure, one of the highest waterproof and dustproof ratings available, designed to withstand extremely harsh environmental conditions including severe and prolonged exposure to sunlight, extreme cold, frost, snow, rainfall, hail & humidity.

User capacity performance results may vary based on topology configuration, structural and architectural elements, environmental factors, type of data traffic, RF capabilities of client devices, distance, RF interference in the operating environment and other factors.
