TP-Link, the leading provider of networking products that power small and medium businesses, today announced its new High-Performance Wi-Fi 6 Wireless Dual-Band Ceiling Mount Access Points: EAP660 HD, EAP620 HD.
Wi-Fi 6 — Faster, Smarter, Unstoppable
Wi-Fi 6 (also known as 802.11ax Wi-Fi or AX Wi-Fi) is the newest Wi-Fi standard. Compared with its predecessor Wi-Fi 5 (11ac Wi-Fi), Wi-Fi 6 combines two industry-leading and innovative technologies — OFDMA and 1024-QAM — to improve speed, increase efficiency, and reduce congestion in high-density environments.
With 802.11ac Wi-Fi, each truck could only deliver one parcel (“data packet”) to one device at a time. With OFDMA, however, each truck delivers multiple packets to multiple devices simultaneously.
With 1024-QAM, each symbol carries 10 bits rather than 8 bits, improving raw speeds by 25% compared to 802.11ac 256-QAM. Users can now watch Netflix at home or Twitch live streams from their computers – with 1024-QAM, streaming just got that much better.
Wi-Fi 6 with the Omada SDN Business Solution
Omada SDN is designed to solve problems when deployment in a traditional network is complicated, difficult to maintain, and difficult to expand horizontally.
Omada Wi-Fi 6 access points provide high-performance connectivity for any business experiencing growing numbers of IoT and mobility requirements.
OFDMA increases the number of connected devices and improves transmission efficiency in high-density environments by assigning channels to more devices.
Wi-Fi Deployment in High-Density Environments
Omada APs are equipped with enterprise chipsets, dedicated antennas, advanced RF functions, and auto channel selection and power adjustment—all for high-concurrency capacity in high-density environments such as classrooms, malls, stadiums, and manufacturing facilities.
Flexible Operation and Management
Flexible operation and management are ensured with Zero-Touch Provisioning integrated into the Omada SDN solution.
This next-gen Wi-Fi technology is faster than ever before, with quadrupled capacity for network connections compared with Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac).
