Taipei, Taipei City, Taiwan, 2010/04/06 - Not just a standard 11n access point, 4ipnet EAP200 also features 4ipWES (Press-n-Connect) for WDS Easy Setup and Layer 2 Firewall for local network security. EAP200 can operate on AC, DC or PoE and is manageable by 4ipnet WHG-series Controllers.
4ipnet, Inc., a networking device provider for manageable, reliable and secure wireless broadband access, today introduced its IP50 2x2 MIMO 802.11n EAP200 Enterprise Access Point, backward compatible with 802.11b/g. EAP200 leverages the benefits of the IEEE 11n standard – high throughput, greater coverage, and more consistent signal – and supports AC, DC or 802.3af PoE power supplies for installation flexibility. Designed for bandwidth-hungry applications such as voice-over-WLAN, video conferencing, and video surveillance, EAP200 packs 2x2 transmit/receive antenna MIMO with up to 300Mbps data rates, and two field-replaceable high-gain antennas for optimal wireless connectivity.
But beyond common expectations, the real surprise of EAP200 is in its built-in Layer 2 Firewall feature, the network security tool which is usually supported by a high-end Layer 2 switch. The Layer 2 Firewall is designed to block malicious attacks at the edge of the network - a firewall between the outside world and the intranet. It prevents internet disconnection caused by NetCut or similar programs, filters untrusted DHCP messages, and protects clients on the network from peering up with an unauthorized DHCP server. Also, it blocks ARP spoofing to prevent password sniffing. EAP200 built-in with Layer 2 Firewall brings a new level of local network security, ensuring high network uptime in a public area or a wireless hotspot.
Another handy feature is the 4ipWES (Press-n-Connect) - 4ipnet's patent-pending technology for quick and automatic WDS Easy Setup. It works in a walk: once the WES buttons on the rear of two or more EAP200s are pressed, they start connecting to each other automatically. Bridging multiple EAP200 APs is literally at the touch of a button. Housed in IP50 dust-proof case, the industrial-grade EAP200 come with all of the demanding requirements one would expect in a wireless device for enterprise applications, including business-grade security (802.1X, WEP, and WPA/WPA2), and multiple ESSIDs with VLAN tags to separate the traffics of different departments in one organization. Like other members of 4ipnet Access Point family, EAP200 is manageable by 4ipnet WHG-series Controllers to create a seamless user experience.
Given the high performance, multi-media capabilities, and relatively painless setup, the EAP200 is competitively priced for even the smallest businesses.
