Wave Wifi EC-HP (Ethernet converter/Bridge)
Wave WiFi EC-HP Models (High Power)
Wireless Internet requirements differ from one boat to another. Wave WiFi offers a range of products that meet the most discriminating requirements of the small boat owner or megayacht captain.
Wave WiFi's EC-HP and EC-AP-HP produce the highest allowable output power of 1 Watt providing long-range connections to good quality HotSpots. The built-in amplifier supplies maximum receive sensitivity (-107dBm @ 11Mb/s).
All HP units ship with the latest firmware version of Wave WiFi's proprietary web-based interface. Both HP models support WEP, WPA and WPA2 encryption and have a unique, built-in 'help' system, free online firmware upgrades and free online global weather forecasting from iMap Weather. The EC-HP and EC-AP-HP are Ethernet Converters (EC) so a direct connection can be made to any Ethernet enabled device resulting in flawless performance as a standalone system or integrated into the boat's network. Also there is no software to install, no USB restrictions and no power-robbing USB connections.
This means better performance for plug-and-play computer accessories like SKYPE phones and webcams. The EC-AP-HP models feature a built-in access point allowing you to create your own access point (HotSpot) aboard your boat. With the EC-AP-HP multiple computers aboard the boat can connect to the access point wirelessly.
