COSTA MESA, Calif. — EnGenius Technologies announces it has expanded its Cloud solution with multi-gigabit PoE++ switching, designed to meet the demands of WiFi 6 access points that support over 1 gigabit speeds and power devices that exceed 30 watts.
The EnGenius Cloud ECS5212FP and ECS5212 multi-gig switches are the first of many switches that will be released in 2020 to serve the ever-increasing demand of new technology in mid to large environments like student housing, condominiums, assisted living facilities, hotels and resorts, according to the company.
The company says the devices will not only future-proof, but further expand the capabilities of its Cloud-managed networking platform, EnGenius Cloud.
