Case Studies


Delivers Robust Long-Distance Signal

High 400mW transmit power delivers long-distance signal for Point-to-Point wireless bridging to other buildings.

Maximizes Wireless Connectivity Over Long Distances

10 dBi internal directional antenna with dual polarity design propagates a more focused signal beam for targeting other outdoor client bridges or providing wireless network connectivity to a specific outdoor area in Access Point mode.



Great for Streaming Media or Transferring Large Files

Up to 300 Mbps wireless speed when connected to another 5 GHz Wireless N300 device. Complies with IEEE802.11a/n standards.

Supports SSID-to-VLAN Tagging

Can be configured to broadcast up to four (4) SSIDs. Each SSID can be tagged to a specified company network VLAN for different user access based on established access rights.



Extends the Network Further

Acts as an extension of an existing home or small business network for video streaming, voice & data intensive applications.

Simplified AP Monitoring and Management

For easier monitoring and maintenance after deployment on rooftops and other hard to reach places, users can monitor the Access Point remotely with SNMP-based EZ Controller wireless Access Point software for Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux.


ENS500 High-Powered, Long-Range 5 GHz Wireless N300 Outdoor Bridge

The ENS500 is a high-speed, long-range outdoor 802.11n Wireless N300 Client Bridge and Access Point that operates in the 5GHz frequency band so it avoids the congested wireless traffic from devices on the more commonly used 2.4 GHz frequency band. This makes the ENS500 an ideal solution for building-to-building wireless bridging, for stable streaming of video from connected IP security cameras in parking lots or garages back to a company network, or for sending data to outdoor digital signage. The ENS500 can also be used in other operational modes including as an Access Point to offer wireless network connectivity to a more defined outdoor venue rather than a more general outdoor area around it.

Designed to Withstand Harsh Environmental Conditions
IP65 rated weatherproof housing that ensures continued operation in harsh outdoor environments or in climates of extreme cold, heat or continuous moisture.
Installation Kit Included
Includes easy-to-install kit for mounting and proprietary PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) injector with adapter for connection to an Ethernet switch.
EZ Controller™
EZ Controller™ software for Windows, Mac OS X or Linux provides a suite of tools for IT managers, installers and network administrators to manage and maintain wireless networks. Available as a free download. Click here for the latest version of EZ Controller
