New EnGenius Media Bridge/Access Point Enhances Home and Small Office Experiences within Internet of Things Movement

EnGenius Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance, versatile networking and telecommunications solutions for businesses and consumers, is making it easier to connect the Internet of Things (IoT) in homes and small offices with the launch of the ETA1305 Wireless N300 IoT Media Bridge/Access Point with Built-In 5-Port Gigabit Switch.

Featuring a unique design that incorporates an N300 wireless access point and a 5-port Gigabit switch, the ETA1305 can be used to wirelessly connect home entertainment devices in a game room, basement, or kid’s playroom located away from the family’s existing wireless router. In small office environments, the integrated switch enables users to connect Ethernet-enabled peripherals like multi-function office equipment, storage devices, or set top boxes to the office’s router.

“The ETA1305 is an ideal solution for delivering fast, reliable data connectivity to remote areas of the home such as family rooms and entertainment centers which are physically located away from the wireless router, but require solid connectivity for bandwidth-critical applications such as video streaming,” stated Sara Huang, Product Manager for EnGenius. “This product gives users an easy-to-use, high-performance network connectivity solution that enables them to enjoy the high-quality video and console gaming experiences that they expect regardless of where there devices are located in the home.”

Fast, Reliable Connectivity Throughout the Home or Office for Ethernet-Enabled and Wireless Devices

The ETA1305 delivers wireless speeds up to 300 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz frequency band and can connect up to five Ethernet-enabled entertainment or office devices to the network at Gigabit Ethernet speeds for optimal data throughput and enhanced media streaming. The versatile product includes two operation modes – Client Bridge and Access Point. When set to Client Bridge mode, Ethernet-enabled devices connected to the Gigabit Ethernet ports can join an existing wireless network. In Access Point mode, the ETA1305 can extend the overall range and coverage of a home or small office’s existing wireless network to provide wireless access in previously hard-to-connect areas.

Unique Design Enables Security, Performance while Minimizing Unsightly Cabling

The ETA1305 features an integrated power module design, eliminating the need for a separate power adapter and allowing it to be placed virtually anywhere and hidden from view behind home entertainment devices or office equipment connected to it. For better off-the-floor Ethernet cable management, the ETA1305 has a magnetized back panel for attaching to metal furniture or fixtures, enabling it to be placed practically anywhere.

To prevent unauthorized access to the existing wireless network, the ETA1305 supports several security features and settings including industry-standard WPA/WPA2 wireless encryption. For easy and secure setup of the network, the WPS button can be used to quickly connect devices without the hassle of initially configuring the ETA1305.

“The IoT Movement is completely dependent upon the ability of the growing variety of network connected devices to be able to continuously and reliably secure and maintain high-speed Internet connectivity from wherever they are located, whether in home or office environments,” explained Brian Watt, Product Marketing Manager at EnGenius. “With the ability to either extend a wireless network to deliver high-speed connectivity to areas unreachable by an existing router, or to provide Gigabit speed connectivity for Ethernet-enabled devices to the wireless network regardless of where they are located in the home or office, the ETA1305 is an ideal solution to support the IoT scenario in homes and small offices.”

The ETA1305 Wireless N300 IoT Media Bridge/AP with Built-In 5-Port Gigabit Switch is covered by a one-year limited warranty and is available in North America via authorized retailers, distributors and value-added resellers at a MSRP of $99.99.
