Introducing TP-Link’s Omada EAP215 Bridge KIT with an Impressive 5km Range!

The two-pack Omada EAP215 Bridge KIT connects locations up to 5km apart

 

Sydney, AUSTRALIA, 18 April 2024 – Network innovator TP-Link continues to deliver practical solutions designed to revolutionalise wireless connectivity with the announcement of a new bridge kit that offers a 5km range to extend your network.

 

New 5GHz 867Mbps long-range indoor/outdoor access point connects locations up to 5km apart, and has auto-pairing for simple deployment

 

Businesses and other users who need their networks to cover very large properties, or multiple properties, can now link wirelessly at a range of up to 5 kilometres, by adding an Omada EAP215 Bridge KIT. 

 

Simple to install and weatherproof, the EAP215 is especially ideal for surveillance, as it allows the direct connection of IP cameras (or any other device, including Omada Wi-Fi APs) via Ethernet ports. Or use it to bring high-speed internet to remote locations on your property, whether they be a far-flung warehouse or even an outdoor installation, such as mustering yards.

 

802.11ac for 867Mbps over 5GHz

The EAP215 Bridge KIT uses the tried-and-tested 802.11ac Wi-Fi protocol, making it compatible with a huge range of switches and access points. Consisting of two units, the bridge connects automatically via auto-pairing, and passes data between the units at up to 867Mbps1 at a range of 5 kilometres2. Because the bridge connects automatically, it’s simple to deploy and there’s no need for network managers to upskill. (Actual range and performance will depend on network configuration and other geographical factors, and will tend to be less than the theoretical maximum.)

 

Point-to-point Connection and Gigabit Ethernet

The EAP215 Bridge KIT is a point-to-point connection that requires minimal configuration out of the box, but at the same time offers flexibility for remote or long-range setup. 

Each of the two units includes three 1Gbps Ethernet points and supports passive Power Over Ethernet (POE). This gives you the flexibility to have the near side of the bridge connected to your switch and PC, while the far side – such as near the boundary of a property – can be connected to two outdoor network cameras (over Ethernet) and a solar power system (via passive POE) with no need to install additional electrical outlets.

And, while primary usage for the EAP215 Bridge KIT is point-to-point, the main AP can be connected to four other APs to make a point-to-multi-point network.

 

IP65 Weatherproofing with Lightning Protection

Dust proof and watertight against light water pressure, the EAP215 can be used as an outdoor access point, provided it is given basic protection from extreme weather3. The bridge also includes lightning protection to minimise disruption from electrical storms and keep your network online, which can be vital for assessing damage or keeping lines of communication open. The EAP215 is also a great fit for food and beverage businesses, as it can bring your guests 802.11ac wireless internet to outdoor patios, verandas and terraces that might otherwise be awkward to connect using other access point technologies.

 

Centralised Cloud Management

The EAP215 Bridge Kit can be controlled and monitored using the Omada Software Defined Networking (SDN) platform, as well as TP-Link’s Centralised Cloud Management system. This setup enables deployment and monitoring of the device both locally and through the cloud.4

 

For local management, you can also use the Omada app to operate the EAP215 Bridge Kit in standalone mode without needing cloud connectivity.

 

Pricing and Availability

The Omada EAP215 Bridge KIT with 5 kilometre range is available from TP-Link’s network of channel partners, including value-added resellers, solution providers and distributors. For short-range indoor/outdoor installations, the Omada EAP211 Bridge KIT can connect locations up to 1 kilometre apart. 

 

 

TP-Link Omada products are supported by a 3 year warranty. Full product details for Omada Bridge KITs are available here.

 

 

Disclaimers

1. Maximum wireless transmission rates are the physical rates derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Range and coverage specifications, along with the number of connected devices, were defined according to test results under normal usage conditions. Actual wireless transmission rate, wireless coverage, and number of connected devices are not guaranteed and will vary as a result of 1) environmental factors, including building materials, physical objects, and obstacles; 2) network conditions, including local interference, volume and density of traffic, product location, network complexity, and network overhead; and 3) client limitations, including rated performance, location, connection quality, and client condition.

2. All products are tested in real outdoor environments. Actual range and throughput depend on the transmission power and environmental factors such as wireless interference, obstacles, weather, etc.

3. Protection against lightning and electrostatic discharge may be achieved through proper product setup, grounding, and cable shielding. Refer to the instruction manual and consult an IT professional to assist with setting up this product.

4.These functions require the use of an Omada SDN controller.

Farmers cautiously welcome carbon credit move; remind integrity is key

Tuesday 21 May, 2024 Farmers for Climate Action has cautiously welcomed news that stakeholders will be able to submit new carbon absorption and reduction methods, and reiterated that integrity is key to any carbon methodology. Carbon credits created in the agriculture and land sector generally involve absorbing carbon, typically in plantings of native species but also through soils, or by reducing carbon output of other farm practices, for example by burning methane from piggeries. The carbon credit can then be sold to the government at an auction or to private companies. Carbon credits must be real and additional - the…
