4ipnet EAP717 is an enterprise-grade, dual-band 802.11n indoor access point, designed specifically for environments such as offices, universities, hotels, and hospitals. Featuring a 2×2 MIMO radio that can support up to 300 Mbps data rate, the EAP717 is ideal for providing wire-like performance that is crucial for businesses. Traffic prioritization ensures that bandwidth hungry applications such as HD videos can stream perfectly, while enforcing strict QoS requirements for VoIP and mission critical services.
With the rising demand for uninterrupted streaming, more and more devices are supporting 5 GHz operation to utilize the wider available bandwidth. Shifting clients to the 5 GHz band alleviates congestion on existing 2.4 GHz networks, improving the overall wireless experience. Nevertheless, given the large proportion of devices today that are 2.4 GHz-only, supporting 2.4 GHz operation is still a necessity. For organizations that wish to optimize the number of physical APs while maintaining the flexibility of servicing either 2.4 or 5 GHz clients, the EAP717 offers the best of both worlds.
The EAP717’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 EAP717 is accentuated by its two dual-band internal antennas, which serve to amplify wireless coverage. With a patented mounting mechanism, the EAP717 can be easily mounted on walls or ceilings. Combined with PoE (Power over Ethernet) support that eliminates the need for traditional power sources, the EAP717 offers an unparalleled deployment flexibility.
When used with the 4ipnet WHG Controller, the EAP717 supports a wide-array of value added applications required by enterprises and organizations, such as bandwidth control, user authentication and billing, centralized WLAN management, and much more. Along with stringent yet customizable security policies, the flexible and fully-featured EAP717 becomes the ideal choice for all types of businesses, from small coffee shops to large corporations.
