4ipnet EAP701 is an enterprise-grade, 2.4 GHz 802.11n indoor access point, designed specifically to be placed in the wall outlet boxes of office buildings, dormitories, and hotel rooms. Fitting perfectly into outlet boxes, the EAP701 replaces existing Ethernet outlets by adding Wi-Fi capability without sacrificing wired connectivity. Furthermore, the compact size extremely affordable price range makes the EAP701 ideal for per-room installation, allowing network administrators to utilize small coverage cells for maximum wireless performance.
Featuring a 2×2 MIMO radio that can support up to 300 Mbps data rate, the EAP701 is ideal for providing wire-like performance in the 2.4 GHz band. Traffic prioritization ensures that bandwidth hungry applications such as HD videos can stream perfectly, while strict QoS requirements can be enforced for VoIP and mission critical services. The EAP701’s layer 2 firewall can also prevent unnecessary network packets from entering the wireless medium, keeping the medium free for data transmission and optimizing overall network throughput.
The EAP701’s exterior is a UL94-5VA rated, pearl white plastic housing that is elegant and flexible to deploy. The simplistic yet classy design is perfect for blending into everyday working or living environments. Furthermore, the camouflaged appearance of the EAP701 is accentuated by its built-in chip antenna, which serves to amplify wireless coverage. With multiple exchangeable mounting platforms, the EAP701 can be easily placed in wall outlet boxes or mounted on vertical surfaces such as walls. Combined with PoE (Power over Ethernet) support that eliminates the need for traditional power sources, the EAP701 offers an unparalleled deployment flexibility.
When used with the 4ipnet WHG Controller, the EAP701 supports a wide-array of value added applications required by enterprises and organizations, such as bandwidth control, user authentication, centralized WLAN management, and much more. Along with stringent yet customizable security policies, the flexible and fully-featured EAP701 becomes the ideal choice for all types of businesses, from small coffee shops to large hotels and resorts.
