TP-LINK, the world’s leading innovator and provider of home, small and medium business networking solutions, introduced Pharos series, a high performance enterprise class outdoor wireless solution, designed for long distance wireless backhaul, point-to-multipoint connections and outdoor Wi-Fi coverage solutions.
Pharos series products use flexible and cost-effective wireless connection to replace the expensive fixed wired connections for outdoor networking applications, including Base Stations, CPEs, various types of external antennas, and a centralized management software.
“With TP-LINK’s next-generation of outdoor wireless backhaul solution – Pharos Series, our Wireless Internet Service Provider customers can provide broadband Internet access to millions of users,” said Andy Chen, Director of International Business at TP-LINK. “This will give the WISP the opportunity to evolve in a large and fast growing market,” he added.
Enterprise Hardware Design
With Qualcomm Atheros enterprise level chipsets, high gain antennas and high power amplifiers, the Pharos series are built to maximize and stabilize long distance wireless transmission performance. In addition, the specially designed weatherproof enclosure and PoE power supply ensure that Pharos series can be used in various weather conditions, from dry to humid, in temperatures from –30°C~70°C (-22℉~158℉).
Proprietary TP-LINK MAXtream TDMA Technology
As network scale increases and wireless environment is becoming more and more complex, wireless competition and collisions among wireless devices will be so enormous that the real throughput of the network will drop, resulting in a serious impact on end-user experience. To eliminate these effects, TP-LINK’s Pharos series develops proprietary MAXtream TDMA Technology to incredibly improve wireless performance of large scale network in complex wireless environments.
Advanced Centralized Management System
Pharos Control – TP-LINK’s intuitive and user-friendly Centralized Management Controller Software, allows administrators to easily manage all the devices in their network from any PC, with no extra cost or special training. Functions like device discovery, status monitoring, firmware upgrading, and network maintenance can be all be remotely managed.
