The EnGenius ECB350 is an ideal solution for expanding an existing network and increasing bandwidth to support additional users. This 2.4GHz Wireless-N Indoor access Point/Client Bridge that features up to 29 dBm RF Tx (transmit) power for long range coverage, wireless speeds up to 300Mbps and a Gigabit Ethernet port for connecting to a switch or router.
The ECB350s robust transmit power, enhanced receive sensitivity and its MIMO (Multiple In/Multiple Out) antenna array extends wireless coverage and enhances connectivity to client devices even in areas where connections have been previously challenging or non-existent. This capability also helps to reduce the number of access Points needed to deploy over large properties and helps to eliminate the need for roaming clients to constantly re-associate to different APs in the building or throughout the property.
This powerful and versatile, multi-functional 802.11n wireless device features eight different operation modes (Access Point/Client Bridge/Universal Repeater/WDS Bridge/WDS AP/WDS Station/AP Router/Client Router) to meet the changing needs of evolving business environments. The ECB350 is designed for extending networks within large or multi-story buildings or expansive, client-intensive facilities like hotels, resorts, hospitals, office buildings, universities or other multi-building campus facilities that need to offer employees, guests, staff or students access to network resources like printers, content or the Internet. The ECB350 delivers up to 6x faster speeds and 7x extended coverage than normal-power, legacy 802.11g access points. For small-to-medium- sized business networks and for larger homes, the ECB350 is an ideal solution for providing superior throughput, performance and unparalleled wireless range. The WPS function helps installers quickly connect to the ECB350 to an existing wireless network through the user interface.
The ECB350s Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000) port offers greater bandwidth capacity and faster data transfers and is ideal for accommodating users on the network who are engaged in HD video streaming or online gaming. For deployments near ceilings or in crawlspaces where power outlets may be scarce, the ECB350 is also PoE (Power-over- Ethernet) capable when used with a PoE injector, like the 802.3af compliant EnGenius EPE5818Gaf.The ECB350 also features industry standard wireless network encryption settings, like WEP, and WPA/WPA2, to protect the network from unauthorized access. It also supports IEEE 802.1x Supplicant function in Client Bridge mode for authenticating users to a RADIUS server. For small-to-medium- sized office or larger corporate deployments the ECB350 also can be configured with MAC address filtering so only known and MAC address-recognized client devices can access the network and unauthorized client devices can be isolated.
The ECB350 includes EnGenius Zone Controller access Point Management software that provides a robust suite of tools for IT managers, installers and network administrators who deploy, manage and maintain wireless networks. With Zone Controller, EnGenius Wireless Indoor and Outdoor access Points and Client Bridges can be configured, controlled and monitored from one central location.
Compatible with EnGenius comprehensive family of versatile, long-range Indoor and Outdoor Wireless access Points, Client Bridges, AP routers, Zone Controller is SNMP (v1 and v2) compliant and provides IT administrators with real-time information to ease the deployment, configuration and management of EnGenius wireless networking solutions in complex networking environments.
