A Feature-Rich Controller That Can Deploy and Manage Up To 50 Neutron Series Access Points

Lets IT managers keep track of, map out, and create clusters of Neutron Series Access Points in the network. Gives network administrators the visibility to monitor, manage and adjust settings in real time. Controller interface displays usage reports for real time and historical client connectivity to each Neutron Series Access Point as well as traffic flow and load over both wired and wireless portions of the network.

Gives Network Administrators the Power to Manage PoE Usage on a Port-by-Port Basis

The Switch’s User Interface allows IT managers the ability to allocate just the amount of wattage they need per port to power specific PoE client devices to conserve as much of their Neutron Series Switch’s total PoE budget as possible. Including more Neutron Series Switches to the network gives administrators the ability and versatility to substantially and rapidly scale their networks and to provide just the right Neutron Series Switch necessary to provide wireless connectivity or surveillance in a part of the network previously unserved.

Unlimited Flexibility, Complete Scalability with ezMaster™
Expanded central management features are available for Neutron Switches and APs with ezMaster Network Management Software. Manage 1,000+ APs and Switches and an unlimited number of distributed networks across various cities, regions or countries, regardless of size, all from a single location. Neutron Switches provide future expandability for broader device connectivity and redundant management between Neutron APs and ezMaster with Smart Sync Redundancy (coming 2016).

Expand The Managed Wireless Network to Other Buildings On Your Property

Includes two (2) Gigabit Uplink Ports, as well as, two (2) Dual-Speed SFP ports to support transceivers for fiber cabling for connectivity to offices, buildings, or other parts of the network that exceed the distance capability of regular Ethernet.

The EWS5912FP is a Neutron Series Managed Wireless solution 8-Port Gigabit PoE+ Layer 2 Switch with 2 Gigabit uplink ports and 2 Dual-Speed SFP ports for fiber uplinks. As part of an EnGenius Neutron Series wireless management solution, the EWS5912FP through its browser-based GUI (Graphical User Interface) can discover, configure, manage and monitor up to 50 Neutron Series Wireless Access Points. The Controller mode of the Switch provides a suite of wireless management features for IT managers to configure Neutron Series Access Points. Features include clustering Neutron Series Access Points in clusters with identical policies, Access Point IP Auto-Discovery, remote Access Point rebooting for hard-to-reach / previously deployed units, and a host of visual monitoring features including topology and floor plan view modes for the mapping out and tracking of networks. The controller also features a statistics section for record traffic tracking and comparison between units or over-time comparisons.


Rack Mountable
The EWS5912FP includes bracketing hardware for mounting onto a standard switch rack.
AP Auto IP-Assignment
Assign an IP address range for wireless clients connecting to the network.
Full-Featured Layer 2 Manageability
Includes support for VLAN, QoS, IGMP/MLD Snooping, STP/RSTP/MSTP, Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP), SNMP v1/v2c/v3, and much more.
