EnGenius has announced the release of its new EnGenius cloud-managed ECW215 Wi-Fi 6 dual-band 2×2:2 wall-plate access point.
The EnGenius ECW215 is a low-profile design for easy concealment that uses WiFi 6 technology to deliver wireless experiences to devices such as laptops, tablets, smartphones, and IoT sensors in rooms. The AP also provides a versatile, built-in 2-port gigabit switch to connect and provide power to wired devices like VoIP phones when cabling or power sources are limited. The license-free cloud interface allows IT pros to “bulk” register and configure access points centrally, provide advanced client authentication for higher security, and minimise truck-rolls with advanced AP diagnostics for remote troubleshooting.
The ECW215 smartcasting feature provides smooth, fast setup and streaming on L2 guest networks for media sticks, game consoles and other devices. In addition, upcoming features will add the ability to extend captive portal, splash pages and security (which are all configurable through the SSID interface) to the extra LAN ports to unify the wireless and wired network onboarding process for a seamless user transition.
The EnGenius ECW215 is one of only a few WiFi 6 capable wall-plate access points on the market that provides wired and wireless connectivity for in-room entertainment in hotel guest rooms, student housing, assisted living, senior living, apartment complexes and classrooms.
“We know how hard it can be for installers to work with multi-tenant projects. Our goal is to make that job much easier,” said Bryan Slayman, Product Line Manager at EnGenius Technologies. “That’s why we’re excited to be launching a WiFi 6 wall-mount AP that greatly improves installation and configuration time as well as provides efficient connectivity in apartments, hotel rooms and college dorms. We want to help you provide the best end-user experience possible.”
