Cambium Networks Announces New Cnpilot E502s Outdoor Wi-Fi Access Point

By Ken Briodagh September 22, 2017

Cambium Networks announced recently the latest addition to its cnPilot outdoor family of access points: the cnPilot e502S Outdoor - 802.11ac Outdoor Access Point (AP). Meeting the coverage and density requirements of outdoor connectivity applications, the e502S operates in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands and provides coverage in narrow geographies and noise isolation with its 30-degree coverage beam. The integrated high gain antenna not only provides connectivity to stations located at longer distances but also improves performance in noisy environments. The small footprint with integrated antenna along with narrow coverage and high gain makes it especially suitable to be deployed on street poles in place for lights and signs. e502S modules can also be co-located in clusters of sectors to satisfy the demand of dense crowds such as at sports stadiums, concert venues, special events, and other public areas with high user density.

“With the addition of the e502S, Cambium Networks offers more options than ever before for outdoor access points,” said Vibhu Vivek, SVP, Products, Cambium Networks. “With our e500 series outdoor APs and our e410 and e600 indoor APs, network operators can now find under one roof, all of the needed options to deploy a cutting edge high performance yet affordable, frictionless cloud managed enterprise network.”

Like all cnPilot access points, the new e502S is managed by Cambium's cnMaestro management system, which provides management and controller services, available in the cloud and on-premise configurations.  cnMaestro also includes a configuration optimized for the Managed Service Provider (MSP) that allows the MSP to effectively manage discreet private networks within a single management platform – delivering operational efficiency and control.

“Wi-Fi is the access layer where most interactions take place. We have deployed Cambium Networks’ cnPilot indoor and outdoor solutions in many major deployments,” said Bruce McGregor, GM, Southern Rework. “We prefer to recommend e400 enterprise Wi-Fi indoor modules and e500 enterprise Wi-Fi outdoor modules, with an ePMP™ distribution network, managed by the cnMaestro™ management system. This package of technology is proven to be reliable and cost-effective and is now deployed for business and industrial customers in more than 50 sites on Australia's Eastern Seaboard.”
