  • Integrated enterprise-grade, standards-based security
  • Up to 8 ESSIDs with 802.1Q VLAN
Centralized Point of Connectivity
    In many indoor environments there is often only one source of cabling, with RJ-45 Ethernet and RJ-11 telephone outlets being collocated next to each other to prevent messy wiring and to preserve the interior decor. By supporting RJ-11 pass-through, the EAP717 makes it easy to connect to RJ-45 cabling and provide wireless connectivity while not obstructing existing telephone lines. Furthermore, with two additional Ethernet ports, IP devices such as VoIP phones or IPTVs can be directly connected to the EAP717 without an additional switch. In hotel rooms, office buildings, and other indoor environments, the EAP717 can greatly reduce deployment complexity by acting as a central point of connectivity for both wireless clients and wired peripheral devices.
Maximum Deployment Flexibility
    Supporting 802.3af PoE, the EAP717 can be placed in locations where traditional power sources are unavailable, such as high ceilings and walls. In addition, its plenum-rated materials allows it to be placed in ceiling areas safely without having to worry about being a fire hazard, further increasing deployment flexibility.
Enterprise-grade, Standards-based Security
    With 802.1X authentication and a backend RADIUS server, the EAP717 can prevent unauthorized users from accessing the corporate intranet. Furthermore, the AP can be configured with multiple SSIDs, each utilizing different security standards (e.g. WPA2-Enterprise) and VLAN tags, which enables easy network segmentation to protect corporate resources.
Reduced Interference & Improved Performance
    By supporting Wi-Fi operation in the 5 GHz frequency band, neighboring access points can operate on non-overlapping 40 MHz channels, providing double the throughput of 20 Mhz channels without inducing adjacent channel interference. Furthermore, 5 GHz networks offer more stable performance, as they are less susceptible to interference from other wireless devices that emit RF signals in the 2.4 GHz band.
