EnGenius debuts solution for Wi-Fi network development
Networking vendor simplifies planning, deployment and management of networks with new hardware and software package
EnGenius International Dubai, a provider of high-performance, versatile networking solutions that empower mobility for SMBs and residential markets, has launched the EnGenius End-to-End software suite, a state-of-the-art solution package for small businesses and enterprises in the Middle East.
The EnGenius End-to-End solution integrates high-performance hardware and software tools to make planning, deployment and management of a new network efficient and convenient.
According to the networking vendor, the EnGenius End-to-End includes powerful access points as well as two intuitive web-based tools.
Alishan Zaidi, regional sales manager, EnGenius International Dubai, said the ezWi-Fi Planner tool automates the planning process with intelligent placement of access points. "It creates predictive heat maps of Wi-Fi coverage and suggests the best effort channel plan," he said. "The tool then generates customised reports that can improve proactive communication about important project requirements between clients and planners."
Zaidi added that the second tool, ezMaster, makes it easy to rapidly deploy a cross-border network regardless of scale or location. "Deployment locally is a snap and features include network trend statistical analysis, bulk configuration and device updates, and security monitoring.
Zaidi explained that because the EnGenius End-to-End software suite is complemented by the new EnTurbo engine EWS330AP access point, it brings fast 802.11ac Wave 2 technology. "The MU-MIMO technology in the EnTurbo engine sends dedicated wireless streams to multiple user devices to manage sudden spikes in client demand," he said. "In addition, the Beamforming feature combines signals from multiple access points to extend the potential distance of coverage to greater distances."
Zaidi pointed out that the EnGenius End-to-End currently offers two different packages that include: four access points and an 8-port PoE switch for small businesses and eight access points and a 24-port PoE switch for enterprise organisations. "Both options include ezWiFi planner and ezMaster to ease the challenges of network deployment," he said.
