EnGenius EWS7928FP 370W 24-Port PoE+ WLAN Management Switch (EWS7928FP)

 

Overview

The EWS7928FP is a 24-Port Gigabit PoE+ WLAN Management Switch that can supply up to 30W per port for a total PoE budget of 370W. As part of the EnGenius Neutron Series WLAN Management Solution, the EWS7928FP through its browser-based interface can discover, configure, manage and monitor up to 50 Neutron Series Access Points to provide a single location with which to configure the entire wireless network. The EWS7928FP is the ideal solution for businesses and schools, delivering centralized management via an intuitive interface- without the costs that accompany full-service wireless controllers. With a single entry of wireless parameters and security settings that can be simultaneously applied to all wireless Access Points on the network, the system dramatically simplifies the deployment and daily management of the wireless network. Configuration changes can easily be applied to multiple Access Points or to the entire system simultaneously.

 

Once a Neutron Series Access Point has been connected to a Neutron Series Switch, that Access Point immediately becomes discoverable on the network through the Switch’s wireless management GUI (Graphical User Interface). The IT manager or network administrator then has the option to include that AP in the network and configure it accordingly.

 

The EWS7928FP includes a clustering feature which pairs Access Points together to form a group within the subnet of a network. A cluster provides a single point of administration and enables the deployment of Access Points as a single group within a wireless network instead of a series of separate devices, making it easier for IT administrators to deploy, administer, and secure a wireless network. Clusters are ideal for multiple building deployments where specific buildings require special configurations from the rest of the network. Bulk Firmware upgrades enable Access Points on the network to be updated simultaneously, saving time and resources while the Switch’s monitoring features help IT administrators even further by providing statistics, real time client traffic, topology data and more to react promptly to any issues that may arise.

 

Users can access and manage multiple EWS Neutron Series Switches in single and/or multiple sites with EnGenius Navigator, available as a free download from engeniustech.com. The Navigator feature includes a centralized display that gives a real-time status reading for each EWS Neutron Series Switch in the network. In addition, EnGenius Navigator allows single and multiple EWS Neutron Series Switches to be grouped together under profiles so IT managers can create and manage specific deployment configurations in complex or larger networks.

 

The EWS7928FP provides 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 for 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 GUI, the 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 expanding business properties and operations.

 

The user interface includes two easy-to-use, drag and drop tools to view a Neutron Wireless Management deployment. The Map View feature lets IT managers drag and drop a marker representing a Neutron Series Access Point that has been registered to a 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 an 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.

 

Users can access and manage multiple EWS Neutron Series Switches in single and/or multiple sites with EnGenius Navigator, available as a free download from engeniustech.com. Instantly see, access, and manage every Neutron Wireless Management Switch and Access Point in your entire network - even multiple sites. EnGenius Navigator makes scaling a network incredibly easy by enabling you to   manage multiple sites no matter where you are, making it ideal for managed service providers, VARs, and system integrators.

 

The EWS7928FP offers 24 ports with IEEE 802.3at/af (PoE+) support and 4 SFP slots for fiber uplinks. The 24 Gigabit ports provide seamless connectivity for devices and applications that require high speed network access and reduce bottlenecks that can interrupt communication. The Switch delivers up to 30W per port and a total PoE budget of 370W over connected Ethernet cables to power essential devices like Wireless Access Points, IP Cameras, and VoIP (Voice-over-IP) Phone systems, making the EWS7928FP a great choice for businesses that need to connect to a wide variety of devices for their company.

 

The EWS7928FP’s 4 SFP slots accept fiber transceivers for extending the wired network beyond the limitation of Ethernet cabling. This is especially useful for schools with satellite classrooms, for hotels and resorts, or other businesses with multiple building properties.

 

Firmware updates for connected EWS Neutron Series Access Points are easy to perform with the 1-Click Access Point Firmware Update feature. When new firmware updates are available, an EWS Controller automatically discovers a new firmware version on the EnGenius Server and sends notifications with a list of available firmware updates. This streamlines the process for any EWS model of Access Point so IT managers can stay up to date with the latest versions without having to actively search for new firmware.

 

The EWS7928FP includes bracketing hardware for mounting into a switch rack. For even more power, the RPS370 is a Redundant Power Supply which allows an IT manager to extend the EWS7928FP’s PoE budget by 370W, extending the total PoE budget to 740W. Users can connect a RPS370 to the Switch to provide redundant power in case of primary power supply failure.
