Auto AP Discovery and Provisioning
Centralized Manageability
The Neutron Series of PoE+ Switches and Access Points is designed for rapid
deployment whether for small companies or larger multi-level building or campus
scenarios. Once an Neutron Series Access Point has been connected to a Neutron
Series switch that Access Point immediately becomes discoverable on the network
through the Neutron Series Switch’s wireless management GUI (Graphical User
Interface) and the IT manager or network administrator has the option to include that
AP to the network and configure it accordingly.
The EnGenius Neutron Series Wireless Management Switches provide fully-managed
L2 switching capabilities and PoE+ support while its Neutron Series Wireless Indoor
and Outdoor Access Points extend a network where a company may need to provide
connectivity for a growing array of wireless client devices simplified one-to-many mode
configuration and authorized access to network resources or to the company’s Internet
connection. For efficient manageability, through an easy-to-navigate, browser-based
Graphical User Interface (GUI), each Neutron Series Switch also offers priority-based
configurations depending on an IT manager’s or network administrator’s need. When
combined together Neutron Series Switches and Access Points reach their full potential
by allowing for quick deployment, simplified management and monitoring, and seamless
concurrent upgrades, making the platform ideal for expansive and expanding business
properties and operations.
Mesh Mode* (Available soon)
Multiple Operation Modes Provide Flexibility and Versatility
Under the AP Mesh mode, the Neutron Series Access Points can be used as the
central connection hub for station or clients that support IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n network.
Under this mode, the Neutron Series APs can be configured with the same Mesh
SSID and security password in order to associate with other Neutron Series APs.
For example, you would use one band to connect Neutron Series Access Points
in range with Mesh mode and the other band to broadcast traffic on the network.
Acting as a node within a web framework, each Neutron Series Access Point only
needs to connect to the nearest node using the best path to transmit data, working
collaboratively with other Access Points in the network infrastructure to function.
Networks vary in size and configuration; and rarely are two exactly alike. If
configured as Access Points, each Neutron Series AP supports seamless roaming,
especially useful over large properties where continuous client connectivity is
critical. The AP management User Interface available with each Neutron Series
Switch gives network administrators instant visibility of the EnGenius wireless
network from an overall topology view down to the device level and allows for
reconfiguration of deployed, often physically inaccessible, Neutron Series Access
Points to different modes to meet changing network needs.
Manageable PoE+ Capabilities
Floor Plan & Map Views
The Neutron Series Switches are Layer 2 Managed PoE+ Switches ideal for Access
Points and IP Surveillance that need to be positioned where power outlets may not
be readily available. Available in 8-port, 24-port and 48-port models each Neutron
Series Switch offers Gigabit Ethernet ports with IEEE802.3at/af PoE+ support, as
well as SFP slots for longer fiber uplinks. These powerful PoE+ Switches can deliver
up to 30 watts per port over connected Ethernet cables to power devices like
Wireless Access Points, IP Cameras, and VoIP (Voice-over-IP) Phone Systems. Since
many PoE client devices don’t require a full 30 watts of power, the management
software User Interface allows network administrators the ability to allocate just
the amount of wattage they need per port to power specific PoE client devices to
conserve as much of their Neutron Series Switch’s total PoE budget as possible.
Adding more Neutron Series Switches to the network gives administrators the ability
and versatility to substantially and rapidly scale their networks and to provide just the
right Neutron Series Switch necessary to provide wireless connectivity or surveillance
in a part of the network previously unserved.
The user interface includes two easy-to-use, drag and drop tools to view a
Neutron Wireless Management deployment. The Map View lets IT managers drag
and drop a marker representing an Neutron Series Access Point that has been
registered to an Neutron Series Switch onto a building within a campus topology
to show the relative location of the specific Neutron Series Access Point. This
Map View visual reference makes it easy to find the Access Point to monitor or
reconfigure as necessary if the needs of the network change over time. Like the
Map View, the Floor Plan View does much the same thing but now at the floor
plan level. Scanned images of office or facility floor plans that have been saved as
jpeg (.jpg) files can be uploaded to the Neutron Series Switch interface so, that IT
managers can drag and drop Access Point markers to their approximate locations.
This tool also helps in the planning for additional Neutron Series Access Points and
other related networked devices like IP Cameras.
GIG
Rapidly Expansive Not Enterprise Expensive
Gigabit Speeds for a Variety of Needs
24-ports and 48-ports Neutron Series Switches can support up to 50 Neutron
Series Access Points. 8-Ports Neutron Series Switches can support up to 20
Neutron Series Access Points. Each Neutron Series Switch can connect to
another via Gigabit Ethernet or fiber uplinks through their SFP ports. This enables
network administrators to rapidly build out large Neutron Series wireless device
deployments over expansive properties with the added assurance that through the
AP management User Interface, that they have total visibility of the deployed Neutron
Series APs and Switches and can monitor and manage their performance, upgrade
their firmware or make operation mode changes or even security changes like
selective SSID-to-VLAN tagging as needed. The Neutron Series of Neutron Series
Switches when used together can support hundreds of Neutron Series Access
Points making it an economical alternative to many more expensive offerings from
enterprise networking brands with performance that rivals or exceeds products from
those brands. This EnGenius competitive price/performance alternative gives VARs
the ability to provide a scalable and sometimes more expansive network footprint of
deployed devices for much less than other brands while providing to their customers
more service offerings and still keeping within a client’s total budget.
All Neutron Series IEEE802.11a/b/g/n or 802.11ac Access Points feature Gigabit ports
for connectivity to the network to optimize throughput of bandwidth-intensive or sensitive
applications like video streaming and video conferencing, telephony, or large file transfers.

Comprehensive Security
Wired and Wireless Network Management and Reporting
The Neutron Series Wireless Management solution supports robust security features
such as SSL Certificate. In addition, the Neutron series Switches also support a
complete lineup of advanced Layer 2 features; including secure control connections
between Switches and Access Points, Port mirroring, STP/RSTP/MSTP, Link
Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP), SNMP v1/v2/v3, RMON, and ACL for extensive
network security and more. To protect internal electronics, the Neutron Series Outdoor
Access Points have been mounted in an IP65-rated enclosures, one of the highest
waterproof and dustproof ratings available, designed to withstand extremely harsh
environmental conditions. The Neutron Series Indoor Access Points come housed
in discreet white housings to blend in with any environment, and all Neutron Series
Switches come with the ability to be either desk or rack mounted.
In addition to the network management features that are standard with any of the
Neutron Series Layer 2 PoE+ Switches, the networking interface included with each
Neutron Series Switch gives IT managers and network administrators the visibility
they need to monitor, manage and quickly adjust the settings or performance of
their network in real time. The feature rich interface displays usage reports for real
time and historical client connectivity to each Neutron Series Access Point as well
as traffic flow and load over both wired and wireless portions of the network. The
Neutron Series Wireless Management Switch also enables administrators to create
Access Point clusters if there is a requirement to configure the Access Points
identically or if company department require unique and encrypted access rights to
portions of the network through clustered SSID-to-VLAN tagging.
