EnGenius Technologies offers what it says is the industry’s first 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) 2x2 access point EWS357AP.
The unit promises to help forward-thinking SMBs take advantage of the most sophisticated wireless technology available. SMBs using the EWS357AP can take advantage of 11ax technology, which enables more efficient channel use, reduces latency between AP and client devices, and provides other groundbreaking features, such as:
OFDMA (orthogonal frequency division multiple access for more efficient channel use)
Uplink and downlink of MU-MIMO (ensures optimal signal and reception reliability)
BSS Coloring (tags packets with a “color” to differentiate between adjacent basic service sets)
Target wake time (a power-saving feature that allows for scheduled wake times)
The EWS357AP is priced at $189 and the EWS377AP costs $289. Both will be available in early Q1, 2019.
