ENS500EXT Wireless Outdoor unit provides not only external antenna connectors for antenna upgrade, but also high output power and high sensitivity can extend the transmission range to deliver a stable wireless connection. ENS500EXT integrates 4 operation modes: Access Point, Client Bridge, Client Router and WDS.

Advanced multi-function operation modes offer flexibility in constructing scalable wireless networks for all possible applications. ENS500EXT is designed to deliver reliable service under harsh outdoor environment with certified IP65 protection and tailored to accommodate multimedia streaming services with data-rate up to 300Mbps. Most importantly, it is built-in encryption standards (WEP, WPA, WPA2, TKIP/AES and IEEE802.1x) ensure maximum security and compatibility.


Long Range Coverage

High 400mW transmit power ensures robust signal to achieve longer range. Offers superior wireless network coverage over other brands. Ideal for Point-to-Point wireless bridging to other buildings.

Wireless N300 Speed

Up to 300 Mbps when connected to another 5 GHz Wireless N300 device. Complies with IEEE802.11a/n standards.

Two External Omni-Directional Antennas

Two detachable 5 dBi omni-directional high-gain antennas. Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output (MIMO) antenna technology. External antenna connectors support optional installer-acquired high-gain antenna upgrade.

Robust Design

IP65 rated weatherproof housing that ensures continued operation in harsh outdoor environments or in climates of extreme cold, heat or continuous moisture.
