Operational superiority

The e501S with integrated sector antenna supports 256 client associations, 16 SSIDs, WPA-2 encryption, Dynamic VLANs, DFS channels, Access Control Lists (ACL), and more. The 802.11ac e501S is the essential workhorse for today’s demanding, high density outdoor Wi-Fi networks.

High performance Wi-Fi network

All cnPilot’s Enterprise access points (APs) support features like controller-less roaming, dynamic channel selection, automatic transmit power control, band steering, and more – essential features for easy Wi-Fi operations.


Rapidly setup multi-hop mesh networks either dedicating one radio (e.g.: 5 GHz) for mesh backhaul, or using both bands for client access simultaneously.

Wireless Backhaul Integration

The aux PoEport onthe e501S offers PoE out, eliminating the need for a second power line perfect for powering on a standard 802.3af camera, or on Cambium’s PMP 450 or ePMP backhaul subscriber modules (SMs) for wireless backhaul enabled Wi-Fihotspots.


Dual on-board Active/Standby memory banks ensure higher availability. The e501S can store two versions of the software – defaulting to a working operational software if needed – reducing the likelihood of site visits and increasing network up-time.
