The ENS1200 offers expanded user capacities to outdoor locations such as patio cafes and expansive residential yards and decks. High transmit power ensures greater wireless coverage outdoors while serving more users with fast 11ac wireless speeds. Band Steering shifts dual-band devices to 5 GHz, improving performance.

Operating on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands and supporting 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standards, the ENS1200 features wireless speeds up to 300 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz and 866 Mbps on the 5 GHz frequency bands and a Gigabit port for connecting to 802.3atcapable PoE Switches. The ENS1200 is built with a higher signal strength and sensitivity than other Access Points in its class allowing for fewer Access Points required in a deployment. These specifications assist in reducing dead zones in a deployed WLAN and help boost received signal quality on both ends of the AP as well as client devices in the network.

The ENS1200 can be configured in a number of different modes such as Access Point, WDS AP and WDS Bridge modes which give VARs, system integrators, IT managers, and installers the ability to configure the device for discrete functionality based on their unique network topology or scalable needs. Unlike ordinary outdoor APs, the ENS1200 can be used in a number of configurations and supports connectivity to and from other outdoor client bridges in multiple-building campus deployments.

For secure network configurations, the ENS1200 includes wireless encryption standards such as Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK) Encryption and IEEE 802.1X with RADIUS. MAC Address Filtering is also included allowing network administrators to allow or deny network access to clients devices (computers, tablet PCs, NAS, smartphones, etc.) according to their MAC addresses.

The ENS1200 supports Fast Roaming for clients authenticated to a RADIUS server. This means that employees can be constantly connected to the network – whether they are warehouse workers scanning and capturing barcode information, employees on Wi-Fi phone calls while walking to meetings on another part of a corporate campus, healthcare professionals capturing patient information on mobile devices, or security personnel who need uninterrupted video surveillance on a mobile device when they are alerted to and making their way to the location of an incident.

In addition, the ENS1200 employs Band Steering, a feature that automatically detects Dual Band clients and moves them from the 2.4 GHz band to the 5 GHz band. This allows applications such as video streaming to flow more easily and helps to eliminate traffic congestion on the 2.4 GHz band.

Network administrators can also configure an additional layer of security by tagging each of the ENS1200’s SSIDs to a company’s established VLANs. This added feature helps to ensure that only users in specific VLANs are accessing information they have been authorized to access even when they work outside the building or from another building on the corporate campus that has been bridged to a main office via one or more ENS1200 units. These settings are available upon initial installation with the device’s browser-based Graphical User Interface and through EZ Controller.

With EnGenius’ EZ Controller Management Software, units that have already been deployed on rooftops or other difficult to access locations and other EnGenius APs or Client Bridges in the network can be reconfigured to a different operational mode or upgraded remotely without having to manually reconnect to them or re-install them onsite. When used together with its included PoE injector, the ENS1200 can support a tethered IP camera on the available 802.3af Gigabit port for security applications such as warehouses, stadiums, airports, corporate campuses and more.

The ENS1200’s internal MIMO antenna array is comprised of two (2) internal 5 dBi omni-directional high-gain antennas for 2.4 GHz and two (2) internal 5 dBi omni-directional high-gain antennas for 5 Ghz . This combination of high transmit power and enhanced receive sensitivity results in long range connectivity to client devices and in some venues can minimize the number of Access Points necessary for a deployment.

The ENS1200 is easy to install in virtually any location as well with its included PoE (Power over Ethernet) injector for quick outdoor installation. The Access Point’s internal electronics have been mounted in an IP55-rated enclosure, one of the highest waterproof and dustproof ratings available, designed to withstand extreme environmental conditions including severe and prolonged exposure to sunlight, extreme cold, frost, snow, rainfall, hail and humidity. These protective measures make the ENS1200 an ideal outdoor wireless solution for virtually any locale or any venue including ski and beach resorts, sports arenas, college and corporate campuses, indoor industrial environments, and businesses located in snowy, rainy, and arid climates.

Faster File Transfers and Smoother Video Streaming

Up to 866 Mbps on the 5 GHz and up to 300 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz frequency bands for faster file transfers and smoother video streaming.

High-Power and Long-Range Coverage

Up to 27 dBm transmit power, enabling long range connectivity.

Dual Band Operation for Less Congested Networks

Enables 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands to be used for expanded user capacity. Greater number of channels available on the 5 GHz frequency spectrum supports higher bandwidth applications like HD video streaming while relieving congestion on the 2.4 GHz band.

Maximize RF Performance With High Gain Antennas

Built-in 5 dBi high gain internal antennas for each band.

Keeps Employees, Staff Constantly Connected to the Network

When used with a RADIUS server, Fast Roaming feature enables users to be constantly connected to a network as they move throughout a building. This is especially useful for voice and video applications preventing delays and dropped signals for users on mobile devices.

Improve and Optimize Wireless Traffic with Band Steering

Band Steering automatically detects Dual Band clients and moves them from the 2.4 GHz band to the 5 GHz band. This allows applications such as video streaming to flow more easily and helps to eliminate traffic congestion on the 2.4 GHz band.

Flexible Deployment Scenarios

Choose one of two (2) modes available to the ENS1200 depending on user needs: Access Point or WDS (AP & Bridge).
