N-EnStation5 Kit 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 that acts as a scalable small business and enterprise Access Point solution ideal for Point-to-Point deployments up to 5 miles. Each device 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 5 miles in clear line-of-sight point-to-point deployments!

WISP Scenarios. EnStations can be used in Client Bridge mode and pointed
to a Wireless Internet Service Providers base station making them
ideal CPE (Customer Premise Equipment) that can generate recurring
revenue for Internet providers. The compact form factor of EnStation
also makes 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 communitys architectural
Longer connectivity distances can be achieved when the
two EnStation units of the same frequency band are paired together in a
Point-to-Point (PtP) deployment such as in this kit, 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. Add to existing networks to cover long distances where cabling is
impractical or cost prohibitive, helping to save time and resources. In
addition, no subscription fees are required, lowering the total cost of
ownership of the solution.
Each EnStation5 supports three (3)
operation modes - Access Point, Client Bridge, and WDS Bridge mode. This
flexibility makes N-EnStation5 Kit 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
N-EnStation5 Kit 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.
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.
