EnGenius to unleash a storm of networking gear for home and small business alike

Yardena Arar | Jan. 11, 2013
Taiwanese networking company EnGenius, looking to get into a hotly contested US market for home and small-business networking products, has announced a large lineup of competitively priced Wi-Fi and powerline products, along with separate business and consumer cloud services to manage them.

The powerline devices are also due by spring. EnGenius will see them in kits (because you need one adapter to set up the powerline network on an existing router, and a second to connect a device to the network). The cheapest kit will consist of two EPL500 adapters for $80; the priciest will include an EPL550 adapter and the ETA3005 media bridge for $140.

Also by spring, EnGenius plans to offer cloud services to support its consumer and business product lines. The service for businesses will let you monitor and manage not only access points, but a planned line of managed switches to be announced shortly, while the consumer cloud service will let you play media files stored on devices connected to a Media Pod router. EnGenius says it will afford access to cloud services via either desktop browsers or mobile apps.
