Overview

The EAP900H is a high-powered dual band N900 Indoor Ceiling Mount Access Point for hotels, resorts, hospitals, office buildings, universities, or other multi-building campus environments or large homes that need to extend and expand an existing network wirelessly. The EAP900H supports large file transfers and HD media streaming, as well as PMKSA support that ensures seamless handovers of a client device’s active sessions from one EAP900H access point to another to maintain a reliable connection to the network so hotel guests, patrons, employees, doctors, staff and others can maintain constant connection and watch video or transfer files without interruption no matter where they roam within a large, multi-story facility.

The EAP900H is an ideal solution for expanding an existing network, delivering wireless speeds up to 450 Mbps on each frequency band and featuring a Gigabit port to offer greater bandwidth capacity and faster data transfers throughout the network. The combination of high transmit RF power and an internal MIMO antenna array for enhanced receive sensitivity extends wireless coverage and enhances connectivity to client devices, such as wireless laptops, tablets and smartphones, in areas where connections have previously been challenging or non-existent.

Featuring an aesthetic low-profile smoke detector design, the EAP900H mounts easily on a ceiling and unobtrusively blends in with other common building infrastructure appliances. Optimized for use with EnGenius’ new line of Gigabit PoE Smart Switches, the EAP900H is PoE-capable which enables it to be deployed in areas where power outlets are scarce or not available. The versatile EAP900H, which can be configured to operate as a dual-band wireless access point, WDS bridge, or WDS access point, can be easily managed with the included EnGenius Zone Controller access point management software.

ROBUST DATA PROTECTION
The EAP900H has been designed to appear as a low-profile smoke detector and thus unobtrusively blend in with other common building infrastructure appliances. Because the EAP900H is designed for deployments on ceilings where power outlets may be scarce, it is also PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) IEEE 802.3at for use with an 802.3at-capable PoE injector or 802.3at-capable PoE switch. The EAP900H draws up to 25 watts of power. This dual band Wireless N900 Access Point enables companies to connect to more employees, guests, staff or students who transfer large files within the network or use other bandwidth intensive applications like streaming HD video. The AP’s Gigabit Ethernet port also offers greater bandwidth capacity and faster data transfers through the network. Its enhanced receive sensitivity and six internal MIMO (Multiple In/Multiple Out) antennas, extend wireless coverage and enhance connectivity to client devices even in areas where connections have been previously challenging.

BAND STEERING KEEPS DATA MOVING AT OPTIMAL SPEEDS
The EAP900H features Band Steering, which is a selectable setting in the browser-based interface that a network administrator can invoke. Once selected, Band Steering enables the EAP900H to recognize dual band or 5 GHz-capable client devices in the network and automatically pushes those clients to the 5 GHz SSID. Doing so alleviates the congested network traffic often found on the 2.4 GHz frequency band thus optimizing connectivity and wireless speed for all the client devices associated with the Access Point. The EAP900H can also be configured to operate in as a dual band Wireless N900 Access Point or a WDS (Access Point or Bridge).

SEAMLESS ROAMING
The EAP900H supports PMKSA that distributes and caches a designated WPA/WPA2-Enterprised encryption key to neighboring EAP Access Points. This feature along with a Fast Handover feature that detects a weakening wireless link between Access Point and client initiates a handover of the client from one EAP Access Point to the nearest Access Point with a stronger signal to keep clients continuously and seamlessly connected to the network.

REMOTE MANAGEMENT
The EAP900H is remotely manageable with SNMP v1/v2c/v3 with MIB I/II and private MIB.
