The EWS660AP is a high-powered, long-range, 3x3 Dual Band Neutron Series Managed Wireless solution AC1750 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Outdoor Access Point that functions as a stand-alone Access Point or as part of an EnGenius Neutron Series Wireless Management solution. It features a high transmit RF power for better outdoor signal penetration.
The EWS660AP can operate as a stand-alone Access Point connecting to third-party PoE-capable switches but more control and versatile management of the Access Point is achievable when it is part of an EnGenius Neutron Series Wireless Network Management solution because the AP includes firmware that enables it to be immediately discovered, configured, monitored and managed from a compatible Neutron Series PoE+ Switch (EWS5912FP, EWS7928FP or EWS7952FP). This capability enables IT managers to deploy and manage up to 50 EWS660APs from a Neutron Series Switch allowing for simplified management from one browser-based interface including simultaneous firmware upgrades, clustering, traffic monitoring, bandwidth steering and many other features that can be reset or reconfigured from the convenience of the IT manager’s desktop.
Operating in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency spectrums and supporting 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standards the EWS660AP features wireless speeds up to on its 2.4 GHz band and up to 1300 Mbps on its 5 GHz band, a Gigabit port for connecting to 802.3at-capable PoE Switches. As the EWS660AP is designed to be mounted in high locations where power outlets may be scarce, it also supports PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) IEEE 802.3at for use with an 802.3at-capable PoE injector or 802.3at-capable PoE Switches, drawing up to 22 watts of power.
