Are you looking to extend Wi-Fi into a large backyard to deliver an ultra-fast internet connection? EnGenius has something for you. The networking vendor announced today an all-new outdoor access point (AP), the EWS850AP.
Wi-Fi 6 with PoE
The new weatherproof access point uses the Qualcomm Networking Pro 400 Wi-Fi 6 platform to deliver up to 1754Mbps of Wi-Fi bandwidth on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency band.
It’s a dual-stream (2×2) broadcaster support 80MHz or narrower channels. The AP features the common attributes of Wi-Fi 6, including downlink and uplink MU-MIMO and OFDMA, as well as target wake time (TWT).
For power, the EWS850AP uses power over Ethernet (PoE) and supports both 802.3at and 802.3af PoE standards.
According to EnGenius, for the outdoor environment, the EWS850AP is IP67-rated. That means the AP can withstand harsh weather, including prolonged exposure to sunlight, extreme cold, frost, snow, rainfall, hail, and humidity.
The EWS850AP has a pole-mount design and comes with mounting accessories. It can work as a standalone access point or in a group of multiple units — up to 100 — in a mesh set up.
The EnGenius EWS850AP outdoor Wi-Fi 6 access point will ship in the first quarter of 2020, with pricing being available then.
