4ipnet, a leading provider of competitive and comprehensive wireless LAN solutions for meeting the Wi-Fi demands of tomorrow, today announced the EAP717, a compact and manageable dual-band indoor access point that brings unparalleled deployment flexibility.
From the outside, the EAP717ís pearl white color, built-in antennas, and compact size allows it to be inconspicuously added to any indoor environment. Organizations have the choice of mounting the EAP717 on vertical surfaces such as walls, or in the ceiling with 4ipnetís patented ceiling mount kit. The fire-retardant plastic exterior prevents the AP from being a fire hazard when placed inside ceiling areas. However, the EAP717ís housing and external qualities are not its only desirable characteristics.
First, as a selectable dual-band access point, the EAP717 can operate in either the 2.4GHz or 5GHz frequency band, providing organizations flexibility in channel selection in order to reduce interference. Second, the AP is 802.3af PoE compliant and does not need to be powered by traditional power sources, making it ideal in locations where cabling is difficult. Finally, the RJ-11 telephone line pass through and additional Ethernet LAN ports allows the AP to be deployed without obstructing previously connected telephones or IP-based devices.
On the performance side, the EAP717 supports up to 300 Mbps data rate and includes wireless QoS for prioritizing traffic, ensuring uninterrupted video and audio streaming for a wire-like performance. This is essential in many business environments, where delays in mission-critical applications such as video conferences mean decreased efficiency, lowered productivity, and lost revenue.
When managed by 4ipnetís WHG-series WLAN Controllers, the EAP717 is capable of providing additional features that businesses and organizations find useful, such as fast roaming between APs, AP load balancing, guest access, and VLAN segmentation. With the introduction of the EAP717, 4ipnet continues to provide reliable and feature-rich managed Wi-Fi solutions to organizations of all types and scales, at an unrivaled price performance.
