The NetWave NW7[E] environmentally hardened High Throughput (HT) wireless Ethernet transmission device can be configured through the embedded User Interface as a Client or as an Access Point. This single radio model was designed for high throughput point-to-point or multi-point applications and comes with an integrated 19 dBi, 17º beamwidth antenna. The NW7[E] supports up to 240 Mbps throughput using MIMO technology. The units can be powered by an 802.3af/at PoE compliant device or through a sold-separately PoE injector with the second Ethernet port serving as an IEEE802.3at power source. The NW7 is FCC certified for use in North America and the NW7E is ETSI, DFS and TPC certified for use in the European Union.
