The Neutron Series is a scalable solution for organizations with large properties to deploy, monitor and manage numerous Access Points from a simple and accessible browser-based controller.
The EnGenius Neutron Series of Distributed Network Management products can be mixed and matched to create ideal wireless connectivity solutions for hotels, resorts, high schools, universities, corporate campuses, sports stadiums and arenas and for other companies and organizations.
This is a scalable solution for operations that occupy large properties and that need to deploy, monitor, and manage numerous EnGenius Neutron Series Wireless Access Points from one simple and accessible browser-based software platform. Neutron Series Switches can support any small number of Neutron Series Wireless Access Points to several hundred depending on the number of Neutron Series Switches in the network.
But what makes the Neutron Series such an amazing solution?
Auto AP Discovery and Provisioning
The Neutron Series of Controller Switches and Access Points are designed for rapid deployment whether for small companies or larger multi-level building or campus scenarios. 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 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.
For efficient manageability, through an easy-to-navigate, browser-based Graphical User Interface (GUI), each Neutron Series Controller Switch also offers priority-based configurations depending on an IT manager’s or network administrator’s need. When combined together Neutron Series Contoller 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.
Multiple Operation Modes Provide Flexibility and Versatility
Networks vary in size and configuration and rarely are two exactly alike. If configured as Access Points, each Neutron Series Access Point supports seamless roaming, especially useful for large properties where continuous client connectivity is critical. The Access Point management User Interface available with each Neutron Series Controller 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
The Neutron Series Controller 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 Controller Switch’s total PoE budget as possible. Adding more Neutron Series Controller 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 Controller Switch necessary to provide wireless connectivity or surveillance in a part of the network previously unserved.
Floor Plan & Map Views
The user interface includes two easy-to-use, drag and drop tools to view a Neutron network management deployment. The Map View 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 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.
Rapidly Expansive Not Enterprise Expensive
24-ports and 48-ports Neutron Series Controller Switches can support up to 50 Neutron Series Access Points. 8-Ports Neutron Series Controller Switches can support up to 20 Neutron Series Access Points. Each Neutron Series Controller 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 Controller 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.
Gigabit Speeds for a Variety of Needs
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.
The Neutron Series Distributed Network Management solution supports robust security features such as SSL Certificate. In addition, the Neutron Series Controller 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 enclosure, 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.
Wired and Wireless Network Management and Reporting
In addition to the network management features that are standard with any of the Neutron Series Controller Switches, the networking interface included with each Neutron Series Controller 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 Controller Switch also enables administrators to create Access Point clusters if there is a requirement to configure the Access Points identically or if a company department requires unique and encrypted access rights to portions of the network through clustered SSID-to-VLAN tagging.
