The EWS860AP 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. This capability enables IT managers to deploy and manage EWS860APs 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.
To protect sensitive data during wireless transmissions, the EWS860AP offers different industry-standard encryption settings for wireless transmissions.
The EWS860AP is easy to install in virtually any location and its internal electronics have been mounted in an IP68-rated enclosure, one of the highest waterproof and dustproof ratings available, designed to withstand extremely harsh environmental conditions including severe and prolonged exposure to sunlight, extreme cold, frost, snow, rainfall, hail and humidity. The housing of the Access Point also has been manufactured to repel ultraviolet radiation from the sun. These protective measures make the EWS860AP an ideal outdoor wireless solution for virtually any locale or any venue including ski and beach resorts, sports arenas, college and corporate campuses, and businesses located in snowy, rainy, and arid climates.
