Cambium cnPilot e501S Outdoor Dual Band Wifi Access Point w/ Sector Antenna (RoW) (US cord)



Cambium cnPilot e501S Outdoor 802.11ac Dual-band WI-FI Access Point w/ Integrated Sector Antenna PoE Injector and Tilt Bracket (RoW) (US power cord)

Perfect for demanding, high-density applications and longer range coverage across large areas, including industrial or education campuses, enterprise and hospitality complexes, public parks, and recreational areas, or just about any demanding outdoor environment requiring cost-effective, controller-managed WLAN access points.

  • Operational superiority

The E501S with an integrated sector antenna supports 256 max client associations, 16 SSIDs, WPA-2 encryption, Dynamic VLANs, DFS channels, Access control lists (ACL), and more. The 802.11ac E501S is the essential workhorse for today’s demanding high density outdoor WiFi networks

  • High-performance Wi-Fi network

All cnPilot's Enterprise access points (APs) support features like controller-less roaming, dynamic channel selection, automatic transmit power control, band steering, and more - essential features for easy Wi-Fi operations.

  • Mesh 

Rapidly setup multi-hop mesh networks either dedicating one radio (e.g.: 5 GHz) for mesh backhaul, or using both bands for client access simultaneously.

  • Wireless Backhaul Integration

The aux PoE port on the E501S offers PoE out, eliminating the need for a second power line - perfect for powering on a standard 802.3af camera, or on Cambium's PMP 450 or ePMP backhaul subscriber modules (SMs) for wireless backhaul enabled Wi-Fi hotspots.

  • Resilience 

Dual on-board Active/Standby memory banks ensure higher availability. The E501S can store two versions of the software - defaulting to a working operational software if needed - reducing the likelihood of site visits and increasing network up-time.
