Sandaya Parc La Clusure Provides Campers with Reliable Wi-Fi using EnGenius Cloud - Bure, Belgium

EnGenius Cloud ECW160: Campground knew that additional APs could offer guests better Wi-Fi coverage throughout the campsite.

Sandaya Parc La Clusure is located in the heart of the Ardennes region of southwest Belgium, which features a bastion of beautiful, untouched forests and rivers ideal for camping and enjoying nature.

The 37-acre campsite is equipped with many recreational facilities and offers guests Wi-Fi connection—something campers have come to expect so they can catch up on work and email, play games, watch movies, or simply plan their hiking routes.

Successful campgrounds know they must provide solid Wi-Fi to campers, guests, and staff members to stay competitive.

The Need

Sandaya Parc La Clusure already had an existing Wi-Fi network, but knew that additional access points (APs) could be added to provide guests with better Wi-Fi coverage throughout the campgrounds.

“We were looking for new APs for our campsite,” said Chris Meister, IT technician at Parc Le Clusure. “After consultation with KommaGo, we received a test model of the EnGenius ECW160.”

“It was striking how easy the installation and configuration of these APs went. Everything you need for placement of the AP is included and the configuration is simple.”

The Solution

KommaGo has been supplying EnGenius solutions in Benelux since 2003 and has grown into one of the largest suppliers of the brand in the neighboring Netherlands. Their dedicated product specialists therefore have extensive knowledge of EnGenius products. In this case, they knew the EnGenius Cloud ECW160 outdoor AP would be perfect for the camping site.

“After extensive testing of the product, we determined how many of these APs we ultimately needed,” said Meister. “It was striking how easy the installation and configuration of these APs went. Everything you need for placement of the AP is included and the configuration is simple.

Meister was impressed with the EnGenius Cloud To-Go app, which allows users to monitor their network anytime, anywhere from the Cloud. “For those who find it useful—you can have the APs set everything yourself with regard to Wi-Fi channels, so that you always have the best possible signal,” said Meister.

Below are the key selling points of the 35 ECW160 outdoor 11ac Wave 2 access points that Meister found impressive:

  • • Speeds of 400 + 867 Mbps over 2.4GHz + 5GHz, respectively
  • • Powered via 802.3af Power over Ethernet
  • • Four detachable 5dBi 360° RP-SMA antennas
  • • Dust and waterproofing (IP67)
  • • Suitable for wall and pole mounting

The Results

Sandaya Parc La Clusure has been providing an optimal holiday experience in Ardennes to campers for more than 26 years. Now, with the advent of the Information Age, even campsite guests require a seamless Wi-Fi connection. With the help of KommaGo and EnGenius, Sandaya Parc La Clusure guests can now get the connectivity they need no matter where they are on the campsite grounds.

“The roll-out of no less than 35 EnGenius ECW160 APs was a piece of cake thanks to the simple configuration,” said Meister.

“I would therefore wholeheartedly recommend this product to anyone who wants to quickly and easily expand or upgrade their WiFi network,” added Meister. “KommaGo has offered us a good solution, which has saved us a lot of time and effort!”
