EnGenius EnSky Series Wi-Fi 6 Outdoor Dual Band Wireless Access Points Datasheet

EnGenius EnSky Series Wi-Fi 6 Outdoor Dual Band Wireless Access Points Datasheet

Future Proof, Crowd Proof Networks

EnGenius EWS850AP 2×2 Outdoor Wireless AP features Wi-Fi 6 technology able to meet the high bandwidth demands of densely populated areas like stadiums, airports, smart cities, farms, parks, and massive industrial sites – with greater speed and efficiency. The AP handles crowded outdoor environments through two spatial streams and beamforming technology, which focuses the antenna signal directly toward client devices, providing optimal signal and reception for users.

Faster, More Efficient Connections

Dual-band speeds of 574 Mbps/2.4 GHz and 1,200 Mbps/5 GHz make networks fast, while bi-directional (downlink/uplink) OFDMA enables more efficient channel use to reduce latency between APs and client devices. Uplink and downlink of MU-MIMO provides optimal signal and reception for up to eight devices. The 1024 QAM boosts throughput by 25% and provides greater reliability over short distances. Furthermore, longer OFDM symbols tolerate more noise and guarantee shorter wait times between data transmissions, allowing greater coverage.

Features & Benefits

  • Dual concurrent 802.11ax architecture and backward compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac client devices.
  • Advanced 1024-QAM allows 25% data throughput increase from legacy 11ac access points.
  • Bi-directional (downlink / uplink) OFDMA enables more efficient channel use to reduce latency between APs & client devices in dense environments.
  • Bi-directional (downlink / uplink) MU-MIMO will reduce usage of airtime for each transmission between APs & client devices delivering higher speeds & increased capacity
  • Target Wake Time (TWT) for Power-Saving Wake Times
  • 360° omni-directional antennas to achieve comprehensive coverage for networking client devices under pervasive environments.
  • Compliance with proprietary 48V PoE input for flexible installation and implementing remote reset/reboot for APs over 100 meters (328 feet) away.
  • Robust housing with IP67 enclosure to deploy in extreme weather conditions.
  • Deliver high resolution content or multiple IP surveillance streams over wireless transmission.
  • Systematic and distributed management with EnGenius ezMaster, SkyKey Controller or EnSky Managed Switches with no licensing or subscription fees.

Next-Generation Wi-Fi

The EnSky Series Wi-Fi 6 outdoor access points take advantage of 11ax technology, which enables more efficient channel use, reduces latency between APs and client devices, and provides ground-breaking features such as uplink and downlink of OFDMA, 1024 QAM, BSS coloring, spatial reuse, uplink and downlink of MU-MIMO, Target Wake Time, and Longer OFDMA symbols.

  • OFDMA (uplink and downlink) enables more efficient channel use, reduces latency between AP and client devices, and provides backward-compatibility with 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.
  • 1024 QAM boosts throughput by 25% and provides greater reliability in short distances.
  • BSS coloring tags packets with a “color” to differentiate between adjacent basic service sets to potentially help minimize co-channel interference (CCI).
  • Spatial reuse identifies the different BSS “colors” and simultaneously transmits on the same channel, which reduces wait times, lessens contention, and determines whether the transmission will be deferred or reused on the channel.
  • MU-MIMO (uplink and downlink) supports up to eight client devices and provides greater network efficiency, focuses radio energy on specific users, and ensures optimal signal and reception.
  • Target Wake Time (TWT) reduces power consumption, schedules wake times, and extends client battery life of mobile and IoT devices.
  • Longer OFDM symbols enable shorter wait times between data transmissions and tolerate more noise, which allows greater coverage.

Greater Security

For enhanced wireless security, ESW850 access points support wireless encryption standards such as Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA3/WPA2 Enterprise/PSK) encryption and IEEE 802.1X with RADIUS. MAC address filtering permits network administrators to allow or deny network access to client devices computers, tablet PCs, NAS, & smartphones according to their MAC addresses. Organizations that offer access to patrons or visitors – notably hotels, retail shops and restaurants – can establish a secure guest network that blocks access to main corporate computers. The ESW850 allows businesses to create separate virtual LANs for increased security, network reliability, and bandwidth conservation.

Rugged Durability in the Outdoors

Designed for peak performance in harsh climates, the EWS850AP features an IP67-rated waterproof and dustproof enclosure ensuring it can withstand harsh outdoor environments. This includes prolonged exposure outdoors to sunlight, extreme cold, frost, snow, rain, hail, heat, and humidity.

Reduced Power Consumption and Network Interference

The ESW850 features Target Wake Time (TWT) which reduces power consumption, schedules wake times, and extends the battery life of mobile and IoT devices. Its spatial reuse color set identification through BSS coloring simultaneously transmits on the same channel, reducing transmission wait time and contention.

Power-over-Ethernet Convenience

EnGenius EWS850AP Wi-Fi 6 (11ax) outdoor access points support 1 Gigabit PoE ports, enabling placement in discreet locations where power outlets are scarce or unavailable. Users can power the access points through a connected Ethernet cable directly to an EnSky Managed Gigabit PoE+ switch or with a PoE adapter up to 328 feet from the power source.

Simplified Deployment & Provisioning

In combination with EnSky managed switches, ezMaster and SkyKey network management software, EnSky Wi-Fi 6 APs are automatically discovered and provisioned. One-click individual or bulk configurations and upgrades save time. In addition, access points are quickly and easily deployed and operated by users with limited networking experience. The EnSky solution enables users to manage up to 50 APs per EnSky managed switch and 100 devices per SkyKey controller and ezMaster software to control 1,000+ APs and switches.

Flexibility and Compatibility

In addition, while the ESW850 features the latest in 802.11ax technology, it remains backward compatible with all 11ac/a/b/g/n legacy devices. The ESW850’s compliance with 802.3at input ensures flexible installation over 100 meters (328 feet).The network can extend over short or long distances with robust 25dBm output power coupled with four (4) detachable, SMA-type, omni-directional, 5 dBi MU-MIMO antennas that deliver network connectivity 360° to stadiums, resort properties and large outdoor areas.
