TP-Link, a global provider of consumer and business networking products, has launched 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 replace the expensive fixed wired connections for outdoor networking applications with flexible and cost-effective wireless connections, through Base Stations, CPEs, various types of external antennas and centralized management software.
Everyone wants to be connected in this digital world. Deployment of public Wi-Fi hotspots has seen a tremendous increase in past few years. Most of the public Wi-Fi hotspots in the country are venue-based deployments such as at airports and railway stations (0.5%), hotels (41%) and shopping malls, restaurants, coffee shops, and retail outlets (58%).
There are currently over 31,000 public Wi-Fi hotspots installed in India, according to industry estimates, and the number is expected to grow beyond 202,000 by 2018.
Enterprise Hardware Design
With Qualcomm enterprise-level chipsets, high-gain antennas and high-power amplifiers, Pharos series products are built to maximize and stabilize long distance wireless transmission. In addition, the specially designed weatherproof enclosure and PoE power supply ensure durable performance throughout various weather conditions, from dry to humid, in temperatures from -30°C to 70°C (-22℉ to 158℉).
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 uses proprietary MAXtream time division multiple access technology to drastically improve wireless performance of a large-scale network in even the most 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 devices in their network from any PC, with no extra cost or special training required. Essential functions like device discovery, status monitoring, firmware upgrading and network maintenance can all be remotely managed to ensure top-quality network performance.
“With India adopting digitalization in a big way, the need for providing seamless internet connectivity, both indoor as well as outdoor, is going to be more important than it has been ever in the past. Being World No. 1 in WLAN segment TP-Link is well equipped to provide value for money offerings in wireless solutions for Smart cities, Village Wifi, events, large housing complexes and many more,” commented Sanjay Sehgal, VP (SMB & Telecom Business), TP-Link India Pvt Ltd.
