Data Connect 2178HP-WEE High Power Wireless Ethernet Extender[SKU - 23]

Quantity :

The Data Connect 2178 High Power Wireless Ethernet Extender provides higher transmitting power that translates to better performance and less interference with your wireless network when setting up wireless Ethernet extension. The Data Connect HPWEE is compatible with IEEE 802.11a/n, and the data rate is up to 300Mbps with the 802.11n mode. The Data Connect HPWEE not only has built-in 16dBi dual-polarity Antenna plus two External Antenna Connectors to allow stronger antenna upgrades. Therefore, the Data Connect HPWEE is quite suitable for widely open space wireless applications.

The Data Connect 2178HP-WEE Supports multiple operation modes: AP, AP Client, and WDS to conveniently configure versatile solutions in a wide range of wireless scenarios. It also supports WISP mode so that CPE users could easily connect to internet via a WISP provider to connect to a wired network.

In aspect of security, besides 64/128/152 bits WEP encryption, the Data Connect 2178HPWEE integrates WPA / WAP2, WPA-PSK / WPA2-PSK and 802.1x authority, to secure and protect your wireless Ethernet extender. Furthermore, with user-friendly Web and SNMP based management interface, the Data Connect 2178HP-WEE is easily managed and can be configured remotely.

The Data Connect 2178HP-WEE is perfectly suitable to be installed in outdoor environments and exposed locations. With its IP-55 casing protection, the Data Connect 2178HP-WEE can perform normally under rigorous weather conditions including heavy rain and wind. With our unique Power over Ethernet (PoE) design, the Data Connect 2178HPWEE can be easily installed in the areas where power outlets are not available. The best way of using the Data Connect 2178HP-WEE, is to build outdoor wireless Ethernet extension between buildings on campuses, business parks, rural areas and across highway for example.
