EWS850AP Wi-Fi 6 Outdoor Access Point

EnGenius Technologies, a provider of networking solutions for the smart home and small and medium businesses, announced a high-capacity Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) outdoor access point. 

The new weatherproof access point employs the latest Wi-Fi 6 technology to support the ever-growing bandwidth demands of environments such as homes, stadiums, airports, smart cities and parks.

Featuring an IP67-rated dust and water-resistant enclosure, the EWS850AP can withstand harsh weather environments, including prolonged exposure to sunlight, extreme cold, frost, snow, rainfall, hail, and humidity, according to EnGenius.

The Qualcomm Networking Pro 400 Platform helps ensure the EWS850AP takes advantage of key Wi-Fi 6 features. Key benefits, according to the company, include:

  • Superior Connectivity: With up to four spatial streams across both 5GHz and 2.4GHz bands, the EWS850 encompasses downlink and uplink MU-MIMO and OFDMA to simultaneously manage and transmit data between AP and client devices.
  • Powerful Computing: Dynamic data processing and management to boost data throughput up to 25% with 1024QAM and expand connectivity capabilities.
  • Advanced Data Management: Cut through congested outdoor environments with better data management and extend wireless coverage through longer OFDM signals and reduce channel interference via BSS coloring, offering less latency and improved transmit signals. 
  • Powerful Networking Acceleration: The architecture can associate and maintain connectivity for complex and secure data transfer. Incorporating WPA3 security, the EWS850AP supports higher encryption for sensitive data transfers for hundreds of simultaneously connected devices.

“With over 20 years of delivering high-quality indoor and outdoor wireless solutions, we are excited to continue leading the industry with the Wi-Fi 6 outdoor products such as the EWS850AP. Working with Qualcomm Technologies has given us yet another opportunity to deliver high-performance wireless technology to our current and future customers,” says Eddie Lee, senior product line manager at EnGenius Technologies.

“We are excited to expand our Wi-Fi 6 solution offerings and continue meeting the future needs of Wi-Fi by bringing managed wireless solutions that support the growing demands of wireless devices.”

EnGenius says the EWS850AP will start shipping worldwide in the first quarter of 2020.
