Stay on top of the latest standards with the high-powered, Gigabit speed, beamforming, multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) 802.11ac Wave 2 e600 access point with a 4×4 antenna array.

From the classroom to the mall, cnPilot (TM) e600 Indoor is perfect for applications that demand high capacity, range, and/or support high user density.

The e600 supports seamless roaming for up to 2,048 clients without needing a controller in the network! Hotspot portal hosting on the AP itself offers controllerless simplicity.

Indoor meshing across multiple e600s or with any other Cambium Indoor/Outdoor Enterprise AP, offers a convenient option to wirelessly expand Wi-Fi coverage anywhere.

The plenum-rated e600 packs a maximum transmit power of 28 dB and supports 4×4:4 MU-MIMO on 5GHz; Thus, it is offering more flexibility than ever for both coverage and capacity. Throughput management via Airtime fairness, increased performance by AutoRF, and higher client device speeds from band steering ensure your network can adapt to dynamic client behaviors.

A capacity of 512 concurrent client associations and 16 SSIDs, along with dual on-board active/Standby memory banks, ensure the e600 combines high density with high availability.

Cloud-Managed Access

Managed by Cambium’s cnMaestro cloud controller or on-premises controller, the cnPilot e600 management includes:

  • Zero touch onboarding and configuration
  • Inventory tracking & monitoring
  • Mass configuration & upgrade
  • Dashboard views with alarms
  • Troubleshooting
  • Hierarchical device organization


Monetize your Wi-Fi service with cnMaestros Guest Access capabilities that support splash page hosting, social login, temporary access vouchers, and payment gateway. These features, along with the ability to create time, rate and volume-limited traffic profiles – make the e600 ideal for Education Campus, hotels, high density locations, coffee shops, campgrounds, and office guest Wi-Fi.

Make sure that every connection to an access point is successful. When service to a critical resource such as an external Gateway or AAA is down, the e600 can turn off the impacted SSIDs, enabling client devices to redirect to a functional, neighboring access point.
