Introduction
The EAP1200H is a high-powered, long-range, Dual-band
concurrent Wireless 802.11ac/a/b/g/n Access Point with
three major functional modes. It is designed to operate
in numerous environments; from large homes, small and
medium-sized businesses, multiple-floor offices, hotels,
and other venues, to larger enterprise deployments. 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 large home or
business network.
Maximum data rates are based on IEEE 802.11 standards. Actual throughput and range may vary depending on many factors including environmental conditions, distance between
devices, radio interference in the operating environment, and mix of devices in the network. Features and specifications subject to change without notice. Trademarks and registered
trademarks are the property of their respective owners. For United States of America: Copyright © 2015 EnGenius Technologies, Inc. All rights reserved.

System Requirements
The EAP1200H supports the 2.4 GHz frequency band under
the 802.11b/g/n mode while at the same time providing a
5 GHz band for communicating or transferring files in a less
congested network frequency band.
The following are the Minimum System Requirements in
order configure the device:
The EAP1200H also delivers faster wireless speeds
compared to modern 802.11a/b/g/n wireless devices. Even
though the EAP1200H has been designed and engineered
for heavy traffic and demanding business environments,
in larger housing environments as it can efficiently extend
the wireless range of an existing home router. This makes
it especially ideal in architecturally-challenging structures,
providing whole home connectivity.

To protect sensitive data during wireless transmissions,
the EAP1200H offers different encryption settings for
wireless transmissions, including industry standard WPA
and WPA2 encryption. The EAP1200H also includes MAC
address filtering to allow network administrators to offer
network access only to known computers and other devices
based on their MAC addresses.

Applications
• Training/Educational Facilities: Training sites at corporations or
students at universities use wireless connectivity to exchange
information between peers and easily access information for
learning purposes.
Wireless LAN (WLAN) products are easy to install and
highly efficient. The following list describes some of the
many applications made possible through the power and
flexibility of WLANs:
• Difficult-to-Wire Environments: There are many situations where
wires cannot be installed, deployed easily, or cannot be hidden from
view. Older buildings, sites with multiple buildings, and/or areas
that make the installation of a Ethernet-based LAN impossible,
impractical or expensive are sites where WLAN can be a network
solution.
• Temporary Workgroups: Create temporary workgroups/networks
in more open areas within a building; auditoriums, amphitheaters
classrooms, ballrooms, arenas, exhibition centers, or temporary
offices where one wants either a permanent or temporary Wireless
LAN established.
• The Ability to Access Real-Time Information: Doctors/Nurses,
Point-of-Sale Employees, and/or Warehouse Workers can access
real-time information while dealing with patients, serving
customers, and/or processing information.
• Frequently Changing Environments: Set up networks in
environments that change frequently (i.e.: Show Rooms,
Exhibits, etc.).
• Small Office and Home Office (SOHO) Networks: SOHO users
require a cost-effective, easy, and quick installation of a small
network.
• Wireless Extensions to Existing Ethernet-based Networks:
Devices like the EAP1200H enable network administrators,
installers, and end-users to extend the range and reach of an
existing Ethernet-based network.

Before You Begin
Considerations for Wireless Installation
This section will guide you through the installation process.
Placement of the EnGenius EAP1200H is essential to
maximize the Access Point’s performance. Avoid placing
the EAP1200H in an enclosed space such as a closet,
cabinet, or stairwell.
The operating distance of all wireless devices can often
not be pre-determined due to a number of unknown
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
EAP1200H’s wireless signals must pass through can
weaken the signal. Here are some key guidelines for
allowing the EAP1200H to have an optimal wireless
range during setup.
• Keep the number of walls and/or ceilings between the EAP1200H
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 EAP1200H. 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 EAP1200H’s signal
strength. The most common types of devices are microwaves or
cordless phones.

The EAP1200H has the ability to operate in various modes. This chapter describes the operating modes of the EAP1200H.
Access Point Mode
In Access Point Mode, the EAP1200H behaves like a central connection for stations or clients that support IEEE 802.11ac/a/b/
g/n networks. The stations and clients must be configured to use the same SSID (Service Set Identifier) and security password
to associate with the EAP1200H. The EAP1200H supports up to eight (8) SSIDs per band (16 total) at the same time for secure
access.

The EAP1200H also supports WDS AP mode. This operating mode allows wireless connections to the EAP1200H using
WDS technology. In this mode, configure the MAC addresses in both Access Points to enlarge the wireless area by enabling
WDS Link settings. WDS supports up to four (4) AP MAC addresses.

WDS Bridge Mode
In WDS Bridge Mode, the EAP1200H can wirelessly connect different LANs by configuring the MAC address and security
settings of each EAP1200H device. Use this mode when two wired LANs located a small distance apart want to communicate
with each other. The best solution is to use the EAP1200H to wirelessly connect two wired LANs, as shown in the following
figure.
WDS Bridge Mode can establish up to four (4) WDS links, creating a star-like network.
Note: WDS Bridge Mode does not act as an Access Point because Access Points linked by WDS use the same frequency
channel. More Access Points connected together may lower throughput. This configuration can also be susceptible
to generate endless network loops in your network, so it is recommended to enable the Spanning Tree function to
prevent this from happening. You can find information about the Spanning Tree Function on page 31.

Fast Handover
Fast Roaming
Enable the Fast Handover feature by ensuring that
each client is served by at least one Access Point at
any time. Access Points continuously monitor the
connectivity quality of any client in their range and
efficiently share this information with other Access
Points in the vincinity of that client to coordinate
which of them should serve the client best.
Enable the function to serve mobile client devices
that roam from access point to access point. Some
applications roam on client devices require fast reassociation when they roam to a different access
point.
Please enter the settings of the SSID and initialize
the Security mode to WPA-Mixed, WPA2 enterprise,
WPA2-PSK, WPA-Mixed Enterprise as well as to set the
RADIUS server firstly. User can enable Fast Roaming.
Please also set the same encryption under the same
SSID on other access point and enable Fast Roaming.
When the configuration is activated on different
access point, the mobile client devices can run the
voice service and require seamless roaming to prevent
delay in conversation from access point to access
point.
RSSI: Enter the RSSI (Received Signal Strength Index)
in order to determine the handover procedure which
the current wireless link will terminate. RSSI is an
