Cambium Networks has introduced its cnPilot e430W, a cloud-managed enterprise WiFi wall plate access point (AP). Built to the 802.11ac Wave 2 standard, the AP is intended for hotels, resorts and multi-dwelling units (MDUs). The wall-mounted AP is equipped with multiple GigE ports for indoor WiFi and wired port network access via managed portals.

"Hotels and MDUs have high demand for reliable connectivity, and the e430W makes it easy to provide high-speed connections," said Drew Lentz, co-founder, Frontera Consulting. "The system offers high-end performance at a very affordable price. From a single visually attractive device a hotel can deliver client WiFi access, wired access to IPTVs, and VoIP circuits to in-room telephones."

cnPilot e430W features include:

  • Dual band 802.11ac Wave 2 standard with 2x2 MU-MIMO technology
  • BLE radio to enable presence based services
  • Four GigE ports
  • A PoE out port for powering IP phone in the room
  • Pass-thru ports for connecting legacy accessories like traditional phones or Ethernet driven wired IP clients
  • Tamper-proof deployment options

"The cloud-managed e430W is a full feature in-room AP that is designed to handle the ever increasing demands that today's hospitality guests place on hotel WiFi systems," said Puneet Batta, senior director of engineering, Cambium Networks.

The e430 is designed to complement the company's e410 and e600 indoor and e500 outdoor WiFi APs to provide wireless networking for hospitality and MDU network operators. All can be managed by Cambium's cnMaestro cloud platform.
