PoEWit Technologies has released the WAP-1, a cloud-intelligent, enterprise-class, Wi-Fi 6 access point (AP) with an engine strong enough to power stadiums and auditoriums, yet a design discreet enough to suit modern homes.
The WAP-1 boasts cloud-based configuration using the free PoEWit app, available for iOS and Android. “The AP can be configured and deployed with ease and without legacy on-premises baggage using the PoEWit app. We’ve taken the time and complexity out of setting-up an enterprise AP,” says Dusan Jankov, co-CEO of PoEWit.
The dual-band, dual-concurrent Wi-Fi 6 AP is built to power the densest of environments. It supports 12 spatial streams (8×8 in 5 GHz; 4×4 in 2.4 GHz) to deliver reliable, secure, and ultra-high performance to many wireless devices simultaneously. “It’s currently the only 8×8 Wi-Fi 6 AP specially engineered for the custom installation industry that can support over 1000 clients,” according to Victor Pak, co- CEO of PoEWit.
“With the proliferation of devices requiring Wi-Fi, the use of a high-density AP just makes sense,” says Pak. “We’ve seen homes with over 500 wireless devices operating. If you were to host an event in such a home, the addition of guests’ mobile devices on the network would exceed the capacity of any competing AP, whereas the WAP-1 would continue operating seamlessly.”
The WAP-1 features a 2.5 Gigabit PoE port and 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet Pass-Through to meet the demand for wireless speeds over 1.0 Gigabit. It’s equipped with three wireless radios and a large, multi-core CPU. When coupled with PoEWit’s smart, Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS), the WAP-1 can disable non-critical AP radios during a utility power outage in order to preserve backup battery for the most critical lights and devices on the network.
