EnGenius has this week announced its very first Wi-Fi 6E access point designed for the SMB market. The EnGenius Cloud ECW336 Wi-Fi 6E indoor ceiling mount tri-band access point has been designed for use in the recently released 6 GHz spectrum offering to deliver interference-free signals. The 6 GHz spectrum is more than double the 2.4 and 5 GHz spectrum united boasting seven new 160 MHz wide channels.
Features of the new 6 GHz spectrum and the Wi-Fi 6E access point
“Experts predict that as many as 500 million Wi-Fi 6E compatible devices will spill onto the market in the next two years, enjoying massive, pristine Wi-Fi real estate. While the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands offer a total of 560 MHz of spectrum and 27 channels, 6 GHz alone offers 1200 MHz of spectrum and 59 channels.
With its 6E capability, the ECW336 AP easily supports the ever-growing bandwidth demands of densely congested environments such as corporate workspaces, multi-family units, senior living, student housing, retail, medical centers, and resorts. Business professionals and consumers alike will experience much faster connection speeds without the lag, buffering, and endless download delays experienced within the saturated 2.4 and 5 GHz bands. The future of lightning fast, unimpeded Wi-Fi is finally here.”
