Network World (IDG) recently tested 11ax (Wi-Fi 6) routers from Extreme, Cisco, Meraki and EnGenius to find out whether these access points deliver on the latest standard’s promise of better throughput, and they reviewed each device.
In short, the EnGenius EWS377AP 11ax (Wi-Fi 6) 4×4 Indoor AP: “had both the fastest average throughput and the fastest maximum throughput numbers with both Wi-Fi 6 clients.”

On Wi-Fi 5 clients, the EnGenius AP outperformed the second-best Extreme AP in average throughput with the Galaxy S5 client, clocking a throughput of 498.5 Mbps against Extreme’s 485.45 Mbps.
When paired with the Wi-Fi 5 TP-Link adapter client, EnGenius AP and the Galaxy S5 phone were tied at 498.5 Mbps.
EnGenius also beat out the competition on Wi-Fi 6 clients, with a record high 929.37 Mbps score earned in the linkup between the EnGenius AP and the iPhone 11 client.
All EnGenius APs can be managed using either the license-free EnGenius Cloud or the EnSky on-premises network management solution. Some companies take the best of both worlds and create a hybrid management solution as well.
