The EnGenius Neutron Series EWS7952FP is a 48-Port Layer 2 Gigabit PoE+ Layer 2 Managed Switch with 4 Dual-Speed SFP ports ideal for Wireless Access Points, VoIP (Voice-over-IP) phones, and IP surveillance applications. Its Gigabit ports support IEEE 802.3at/af PoE and can supply up to 30 Watts per port for a total PoE budget of 740 Watts. As part of an EnGenius Neutron Series wireless management solution, the EWS7952FP through its browser-based GUI (Graphical User Interface) can discover, configure, manage and monitor up to 50 Neutron Series Wireless Access Points.

The controller mode of the Switch provides a suite of wireless management features for IT managers to configure Neutron Series Access Points. Features include grouping Neutron Series Access Points in clusters with identical policies, Access Point IP Auto-Discovery, remote Access Point rebooting for hard-to-reach / previously deployed units, and a host of visual monitoring features including topology and floor plan view modes for the mapping out and tracking of networks. The controller also features a statistics section for record traffic tracking and comparison between units or over-time comparisons.

The interface also lets IT managers apply configuration changes to multiple Neutron Series Access Points on the network simultaneously. A dashboard provides instant access to a variety of clients, network information, and events, while a real time map displays Access Point locations and network topology for planning and deployment.

The EWS7952FP offers 48 Gigabit ports with IEEE 802.3at/af (PoE+) support and 4 SFP slots for fiber uplinks. The 48 Gigabit ports provide seamless connectivity for devices and applications that require high speed network access and reduce bottleneck situations that can interrupt communication. The 4 SFP slots accept fiber transceivers for extending the wired network beyond the limitation of Ethernet cabling with fiber cabling. This becomes especially useful for schools with satellite classrooms, hotels and resorts, and other larger multiple building properties.

Managing the wired portion of the network is also easy using the same browser-based interface. The Switch supports IEEE 802.1p QoS which automatically classifies and prioritizes compliant device traffic to ensure that time sensitive data such as VoIP is forwarded without delay.

The EWS7952FP includes bracketing hardware for mounting into a switch rack.

Full-Featured Layer 2 Switches with WLAN Controller Built-In

EnGenius’ Neutron Gigabit Managed PoE+ Switches are a powerful, full-feature platform capable of managing up to 50 Neutron Managed Access Points. Available in 8-, 24- and 48-port Power-over-Ethernet-capable models, Neutron PoE+ Switches offer enterprise-class features, simplified network configuration, monitoring and robust management options. Neutron Gigabit Managed PoE+ Switches provide future expandability for broader device connectivity and redundant management between Neutron APs and ezMaster Network Management Software with it SmartSync Redundancy feature. Doubling as a switch and a wireless network controller, Neutron Switches give IT administrators visibility into all Neutron connected devices. Group equipment with the same settings and policies and apply them automatically for streamlined management updates.

Features and Benefits:

  • Simple to Deploy, Use and Manage
    Centralized management, quick setup through a web-based user interface. Supports management of up to 50 Neutron Series Access Points. Lets IT managers keep track of, map out, and plan the placement of Neutron Series Access Points and Switches in the network with a visual view of the topology as well as tools to search for and find Neutron Series Access Points via their IP or MAC address. Also 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.
  • PoE+ IEEE 802.3at/af Support
    Enables PoE devices like Access Points, Client Bridges, IP Cameras, VoIP telephones and others to be powered directly from the Switch over an Ethernet cable. Up to 30 Watts per port with a total PoE budget of 740 Watts.
  • Full-Featured Layer 2 Manageability
    VLAN, QoS, IGMP/MLD Snooping, STP/RSTP/MSTP, Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP), SNMP v1/v2c/v3, and more.
  • PoE Management
    The Switch's User Interface allows IT managers 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 Switch’s total PoE budget as possible. Including more Neutron Series 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 Switch necessary to provide wireless connectivity or surveillance in a part of the network previously unserved.
  • 4 Dual-Speed SFP Ports
