Outdoor Long-Range Ethernet Bridge; N300 5 GHz
Sorry, this product is no longer available, Please, contact us for a replacement product!
The EnStation5 is a 5 GHz High-Powered, Long-Distance Wireless N300 Outdoor AP/Client Bridge with a high-gain 19 dBi dual-polarization internal directional antenna ideal for Point-to-Point deployments up to 4 miles. It includes two (2) Fast Ethernet ports and is housed in an IP55-rated waterproof housing to maintain robust performance even in harsh environments. Its dedicated 5 GHz frequency band avoids access points and client devices on the more congested 2.4 GHz frequency making it a smart solution for streaming video data for IP Cameras monitoring parking lots and it includes an additional Fast Ethernet Port (LAN 2) to connect a camera for this type of application.
Going The Distance. EnGenius EnStations are Outdoor Wireless Access Points that feature high 26 dBm output power and high receive sensitivity coupled with embedded high-gain directional antennas that emit a narrow signal beam to deliver robust and stable connectivity over extremely long distances — up to 4 miles in clear line-of-sight point-to-point deployments! EnStations, therefore, are ideal for:
- extending networks in large campus venues;
- over extensive acreage in industrial, farming or ranching properties;
- in massive indoor structures like arenas, shopping malls, warehouses, convention centers;
- connecting to digital signage;
- or even in more urban environments where there is clear line-of-sight between the EnStation and another Access Point; or between two EnStation units of the same frequency band.
WISP Scenarios. EnStations can be used in Client Bridge mode and pointed to a Wireless Internet Service Provider’s base station making them ideal CPE (Customer Premise Equipment) that can generate recurring revenue for Internet providers. The compact form factor of EnStation also make it acceptable to many homeowners association because they are barely noticeable and unobtrusive additions to home exteriors and usually within the guidelines of a planned community’s architectural standards.
Longer connectivity distances can be achieved when two EnStation units of the same frequency band are paired together in a Point-to-Point (PtP) deployment, and aligning their respective dish-shaped antennas to be directly facing each other so each gets the full impact of the more focused narrow wireless single beam.
EnStation5 supports three (3) operation modes — Access Point, Client Bridge, and WDS Bridge mode. This flexibility makes EnStation5 a versatile solution for IT managers who may need to update or reconfigure their deployments as the needs of their network change.
Each EnStation includes a proprietary PoE injector (EPE-1212) to supply power for the unit while at the same time providing a data connection over the same Ethernet cable. This is especially useful for deployments where a power outlet for the AP/Client Bridge may be scarce or unavailable, for example under the eaves of roofs, or high on light poles.
EnStations are easy to install in virtually any location and their internal electronics have been mounted in an IP55-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. These protective measures make EnStations ideal outdoor wireless solutions for virtually any locale or any venue including ski and beach resorts, or desert resort communities.
EnStation5 also employs advanced QoS (Quality of Service) to prioritize bandwidth-intensive applications like video streaming or bandwidth sensitive applications like VoIP (Voice over IP) telephone calls for optimal connectivity.
With EnGenius’ EZ Controller™ Management Software, units that have already been deployed on rooftops or other difficult to access locations and other EnGenius 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.

Going the DistanceAll EnStation models feature 26 dBm output power and high receive sensitivity, coupled with embedded high-gain directional antennas that emit a narrow signal beam to deliver stable robust connectivity, optimal bandwidth and high speed data rates over extremely long distances — up to 5 miles in clear line-of-sight point-to-point deployments. EnStation extends the wireless network across large campus environments, over vast acreage in parks and recreational facilities, industrial, farming and ranching properties; in sizable indoor structures like arenas, shopping malls, warehouses and convention centers and in other challenging settings.
Flexibility in Deployment
Confi gure EnStation to accommodate specifi c operation modes including Access Point, Client Bridge and WDS Bridge for Point-to-Point or Pointto-Multipoint deployments.
Point-to-Point & Point-to-Multipoint Deployments
Extended connectivity distances can be achieved when two EnStation units, of the same frequency band, are paired together in a Point-to-Point (PtP) or grouped with multiple units in a Point-to-Multipoint deployment. Aligning their respective dish-shaped antennas to directly face each other ensures each gets the full impact of the focused narrow wireless single beam, further reducing frequency interference over long-ranges.
Wireless Surveillance Scenario
Connect an EnGenius IP Surveillance Camera to EnStation’s secondary Gigabit (EnStationAC) or Fast (EnStation5/2) Ethernet port and utilize its long-range connectivity to send surveillance video back through the wireless network for extended surveillance coverage. Tethering a series of EnGenius IP Cameras to the EnStation gives you “eyes on” places you might not otherwise see – no matter how far away, with signifi cantly better results than traditional non-tethered wireless surveillance setups.
Install Virtually Anywhere
With enhanced power options, EnStation supports Power-over-Ethernet extending power up to 328 feet (100 m) away from a power outlet to EnStation’s mounting location, such as high atop rooftops, poles, rafters or other remote locations via its PoE Adapter or a compatible PoE Switch. All EnStation units include a PoE-compatible Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) adapter. EnStationAC is able to power PoE-compliant devices such as an IP Camera or Access Point directly via its secondary Gigabit PoE pass through port.
Extreme Distances Even in Extreme Weather
EnStation is designed to perform, even in harsh environments. Its IP55-rated waterproof and dustproof casing ensures it can withstand harsh outdoor climates and indoor industrial environments. This includes prolonged exposure outdoors to sunlight, extreme cold, frost, snow, rain, hail, heat and humidity, and indoors where temperature may be a factor.
Position for Maximum Connectivity
A 360-degree, 3-axis pivoting arm locks in place for precise alignment with a matching EnStation unit in point-to-point scenarios. EnStation is easily mounted to a variety of surfaces or poles with the included mounting kits.
Control, Monitor & Configure
With EnGenius’ EZ Controller Software, EnStation units that are deployed on rooftops or in other difficult to access locations can be reconfigured to different operational modes and upgraded remotely without manually connecting to them onsite.
