Introduction
The AP is a great performance, the state-of-the-art 802.11ac and MU-MIMO technology brings revolutionary connecting speed and bandwidth for diversity of
multimedia applications. EAP2200 equips with two powerful RF interfaces that support up to 867 + 867 Mbps in 5GHz frequency band and 400 Mbps in 2.4GHz
frequency band (with 2ss/VHT40 clients). It can be configuring as an: Access Point, Repeater, or WDS (AP, Station & Bridge). Its high-powered, long-range
characteristics make it a cost-effective alternative to ordinary Access Points that don’t have the range and reach to connect to a growing number of wireless users who
wish to connect to a business network. The AP supports the 2.4GHz frequency band under 802.11 b/g/n modes while at the same time providing 5GHz band under
802.11 ac/a/n modes for communicating to and from 5GHz capable computers, tablets or smart phones or transferring files. Several APs can be deployed in a
campus setting using the 5GHz band as a backhaul to provide multiple 2.4GHz wireless cells for computers or mobile devices in common indoor areas.
The AP is easy to install in virtually any location with PoE (Power over Ethernet). The AP enables network administrators to control its transmit power and feature settings
for selecting narrow bandwidth and traffic shaping. The AP also supports wireless encryption including Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK) Encryption, and
IEEE 802.1x with RADIUS.
EnGenius three dedicated bands Wireless Management Access Point solution is designed for deploying on the versatile indoor application. To meet today’s
requirement on varied net-working environment, EnGenius would like to provide the solution as flexible, robust and effective as the organization they desire. With one
2.4GHz band and two 5GHz bands to work with, the EAP2200 assigns each device to the band where it can connect at its maximum possible speed.

Before You Begin
Before You Begin
This section will guide you through the installation process. Placement of the EnGenius Access Point is essential to maximize the Access Point’s performance.
Avoid placing the Access Point in an enclosed space such as a closet, cabinet, or stairwell.
Considerations for Wireless Installation
The operating distance of all wireless devices can often not be pre-determined due to a number of unk nown obstacles in the environment in which
the device is deployed. Obstacles such as the number, thickness, and location of walls, ceilings, or other objects that the Access Point’s wireless
signals must pass through can weaken the signal. Here are some ke y guidelines for allowing the Access Point to have an optimal wireless range
during setup.
 Keep the number of walls and/or ceilings between the Access Point and other network devices to a minimum. Each wall and/or ceiling can reduce the
signal strength, resulting in a lower overall signal strength.
 Building materials make a difference. A solid metal door and/or aluminum stubs may have a significant negative effect on the signal strength of the
Access Point. Locate your wireless devices carefully so the signal can pass through drywall and/or open doorways. Materials such as glass, steel, metal,
concrete, water (example: fish tanks), mirrors, file cabinets, and/or brick can also diminish wireless signal strength.
 Interference from your other electrical devices and/or appliances that generate RF noise can also diminish the Access Point’s signal strength. The most
common types of devices are microwaves or cordless phones.
