The ENH900EXT is a high-powered, long-range, Mesh-capable 3 x 3 Dual-Band Wireless 802.11 a/b/g/n Outdoor Access Point with speeds up to 450 Mbps on both its high-powered 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radios. It can be configured as an Access Point, Mesh, or WDS (AP, Station and Bridge). The ENH900EXT is designed to operate in a variety of outdoor environments making its high-powered, long-range characteristics a cost-effective alternative to ordinary Access Points that don't have the range and reach to connect to a growing number of wireless users who wish to connect to a business network.
The ENH900EXT supports Mesh networking in the 2.4 GHz frequency band to provide redundant and robust connectivity for wireless deployments when running Ethernet cable is not practical. Mesh networking allows the Access Point also supports seamless roaming throughout the network. Nodes in the Mesh network are chosen via the quickest and safest path to keep client devices like Wi-Fi phones, tablets, laptops, and other devices connected as they move in campus-wide network deployments. When new Access Points are added, the new node is incorporated automatically to the network and in the event that an Access Point fails, surrounding nodes will pick up the wireless devices without any interruption of signal.
The ENH900EXT is easy to install in virtually any location with its included PoE (Power over Ethernet) injector for quick outdoor installation. The ENH900EXT also supports wireless encryption safeguards, including Wi-Fi protected access (WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK) encryption and IEEE 802.1x with RADIUS. The ENH900EXT supports wireless Mac filtering, allowing network administrators to allow or deny network access to wireless clients according to their Mac addresses.
The ENH900EXT's 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 (UV) radiation from the sun. These protective measures make the ENH900EXT 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.
