Extending Wi-Fi to outdoors

19 January 2021

Made to extend Wi-Fi outdoors, the model CPE710 from TP-Link has a 23dBi high-gain directional Cassegrain antenna and dedicated metal reflector.

It offers 802.11ac for up to 867Mbps on 5GHz wireless data rate and is, says the company, ideal for long-distance applications.

It is said to have excellent beam directivity, improved latency and noise cancellation with innovative snap-lock parts to make for fast assembly and a sturdy structural design keeps CPE710 stable even in strong winds

And durable IP65 weatherproof enclosure along with 15kV ESD and 6kV lightning protection ensures all-weather suitability

The CPE710 includes Pharos Control centralized management software, helping users easily manage all devices in their network from a single PC.  Its functions include device discovery, status monitoring, firmware upgrading and network maintenance.  An intuitive web-based interface, PharOS, provides an alternative management method and allows professionals to access more detailed configurations

TP-Link says 256 QAM and an 80 MHz bandwidth boosts overall speeds up to 867 Mbps, three times faster than 802.11n Wi-Fi. tp-link.com
