    The Selected EnGenius Solutions are:

    • ECW260 Outdoor AP Dual Band 802.11ax 2x2
    • ECW220 Indoor AP Dual Band 802.11ax Wave 2 2x2
    • ECS1552FP switch, featuring 48 Gigabit ports and POE+ technology, was utilized to power the access points.

    802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) Technology Offers the Following Features:

    Enhanced Data Transfer Speed

    More efficient data encoding results in improved performance. The use of more powerful chips for signal encoding and decoding allows for greater data throughput over the same radio waves.

    Prolonged Battery Life for Wi-Fi Users

    Battery life is extended through a notable feature known as Target Wake Time (TWT). TWT enables the Wi-Fi access point to communicate with your device, instructing it precisely when to activate and deactivate its Wi-Fi connection.

    Improved Performance in Congested Areas

    One of the ways in which Wi-Fi performance can be negatively impacted is when it operates in densely populated areas with signal interference. Wi-Fi 6 employs various new technologies to enhance Wi-Fi functionality, effectively mitigating network congestion issues.

    The Advantages of the EnGenius Solution

    o Delivering High-speed Wi-Fi 6 Internet to accommodate a large number of users simultaneously.
    o Ensuring full coverage in all areas and throughout the entire hotel.
    o Centralized management of devices through the free Cloud service.
    o Exporting project reports and sending them for statistical analysis.

    The Installation Process

    A total of 19 switches were installed on the site, powering a total of 110 APs. The switches were distributed across 19 individual racks on each floor, with one AP installed for every two rooms. The Core Switch was strategically positioned in the central rack to facilitate the connection of all optical fibers from the individual racks.

    Following the physical placement of the equipment, the configuration process commenced. All configurations were executed through the Cloud Controller, encompassing the setup of various VLANs and additional SSIDs. Furthermore, the IGMP Snooping protocol was enabled and appropriately configured on all switches to support the IP TV infrastructure.

    Upon completing the configuration, comprehensive tests were conducted to ensure the correct setup of both switches and APs, as well as to verify the site's adequate coverage.

    The Results

    - Extended Coverage Range
    - Increased User Capacity
    - Faster User Service
    - Higher Speed Capabilities
    - Improved Quality of Service for Users
