The NetWave® NW7[E]/M 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 16dBi, 30º beamwidth antenna. The NW7[E]/M supports up to 240Mbps throughput using MIMO technology. The units can be powered by an 802.3af PoE compliant device or through a sold separately PoE injector. The NW7/M is FCC certified for use in North America and the NW7E/M is ETSI, DFS and TPC certified for use in the European Union. The NW7[E]/M is an ultra-small form factor addition to the ComNet NetWave product family.
