EAP701 - Indoor Access Point


4ipnet EAP701 is an enterprise-grade, 2.4 GHz 802.11n indoor access point, designed specifically to be placed in the wall outlet boxes of office buildings, dormitories, and hotel rooms. 

EAP701 - Indoor Access Point

Highlights
  • Single-band 2.4 GHz
  • In-wall or wall mountable UL94-5VA fire-retardant plastic housing
  • 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) compatible
  • Standalone or centrally managed by 4ipnet WHG Controller
  • Integrated enterprise-grade, standards-based security
  • Up to 8 ESSIDs with 802.1Q VLAN
Converged Wireless and Wired Connectivity
    The EAP701 fits perfectly into existing Ethernet wall outlet boxes, adding Wi-Fi coverage without obstructing previous Ethernet ports. It uniquely combines wireless and wired connectivity by providing two additional wired Ethernet ports for supporting an ever increasing assortment of IP-based devices, such as VoIP phones, network printers, or IPTVs. Not only do the ports provide wired access, but they also reduce the cost of deployment and maintenance by eliminating the need for running additional Ethernet cabling.
Smaller Coverage Cells for Optimal Performance
    The competitive pricing of the EAP701 allows it to be deployed on a per-room basis in environments such as hotels and enterprises. From the wireless performance perspective, densely deployed access points each with small coverage cells increases overall network throughput, as smaller cells mean fewer devices contending for airtime in the same frequency band. Furthermore, the chance of devices being far away from access points and having poor connectivity is reduced. In other words, high power access points with large coverage cells do not necessarily mean better network performance in indoor environments.
Maximum Deployment Flexibility
    Supporting 802.3af PoE, the EAP701 can be deployed without traditional power cables and outlets, reducing the total cost of ownership for an organization's wireless network infrastructure. When RJ-45 connectors are not available or inconvenient, Ethernet cables can be directly connected to the EAP701 through its alternate 110 punch-down block. In addition, the EAP701's plenum-rated materials allow it to be placed in walls 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 EAP701 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.
