EnGenius Technologies Inc. has released a Wi-Fi 6E access point designed for the SMB market. Featuring the Qualcomm Networking Pro 1210 platform, the ECW336 Wi-Fi 6E indoor ceiling mount tri-band access point has been developed for use in the recently unleashed 6 GHz spectrum.
The EnGenius Cloud ECW336 access point marks the company’s first venture into 6E territory. Experts predict that as many as 500 million Wi-Fi 6E compatible devices will spill onto the market in the next three years, enjoying massive, pristine Wi-Fi real estate. While the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands offer a total of 560 MHz of spectrum and 27 channels, 6 GHz alone offers 1200 MHz of spectrum and 59 channels.
With its 6E capability, the ECW336 AP supports the ever-growing bandwidth demands of densely congested environments such as multi-family units, senior living, student housing, universities, retail, corporate workspaces, resorts, stadiums/arenas, and medical centers.
Top Features of the ECW336 Access Point:
- Operates in the 6 GHz band
- Can access 14 additional 80 MHz channels or 7 160 MHz super-wide channels to avoid bottlenecks and reach gigabit Wi-Fi
- Includes powerful quad-core processor to boost performance
- Contains three radios (2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and now 6 GHz) to support thousands of current and new devices
