Cabium Networks Announces cnPILOT™ E500, High-capacity Outdoor WiFi Access Point

Cambium Networks™, a leading global provider of wireless broadband solutions, debuted the cnPilot E500 on 6th June 2016, a high-capacity controller managed outdoor WiFi access point that provides connectivity under demanding conditions. The IP67 grade 802.11ac dual-band AP supporting 16 SSIDs and up to 256 users is perfect for Enterprises, Service Providers, and Industrial users looking for an affordable, yet reliable high-performance WLAN solution.

The cnPilot E500 delivers features typically found in access points at twice the price. Packing a high transmit power of 29 dBm, the ability to daisy-chain power via a PoE out port to power a security camera or a wireless backhaul link node, an LTE co-existence filter to filter out nearby small cell LTE interference, the E500 can support a large number of users in difficult outdoor conditions perfect for any location where a high-performance outdoor 802.11ac WLAN Access Point is needed. The E500 is easily managed through cnMaestro™, the Cambium Networks cloud-based or on-premises based WiFi controller.

Key features of E500 include:

  • Designed for high-capacity situations, supporting up to 256 active users and 16 SSIDs
  • IP67 rated with pressure vent – made to withstand demanding outdoor environments, resistant to wind, sand and rain, and prevent internal damage from moisture accumulation
  • Mesh backhauling capability for convenient outdoor deployments
  • Best radio for the price point, offering reliable, high-capacity solution at a significantly lower cost than comparable competitors
  • Easy to deploy and integrate, supported by cnMaestro’s controller capabilities

“The E500 has proven that it can support the extensive network demands of our public WiFi and public safety equipment,” said Brian Magnuson, President of Cascade Networks, Washington, USA. “The radio is positioned in an area subject to extreme outdoor environmental and RF conditions and the network has performed reliably no matter the situation. The product was extremely easy to deploy and has brought much-needed connectivity and processing power to an otherwise underserved area.”

“High capacity Outdoor deployments need the power of backhaul flexibility when wired networks are not available, and cnPilot E500 provides two options,” said Vibhu Vivek, Senior Vice President of Products for Cambium Networks. “It can be configured to be backhauled by Cambium’s proven ePMP, PMP or PTP solutions for longer distances, or deployed in a mesh configuration where it can form wireless links with any of our indoor and outdoor WiFi access points.”
