TP-LINK to Launch Complete Line of Pharos Outdoor CPE Products and Management Software at CES 2014
Pharos makes long range, high fidelity Wi-Fi available to everyone
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — TP-LINK, a global provider of networking products, today announced its Pharos series, a next generation product line dedicated to providing cost-effective solutions for outdoor wireless networking applications.
The Pharos series includes four CPEs, two base stations, several external antennas, and a centralized management application, designed to make outdoor wireless networking both flexible and ideal for point-to-point, point-to-multipoint and outdoor Wi-Fi coverage applications in small business and enterprise environments.
With Qualcomm Atheros enterprise-level chipset, high sensitivity antennas, specially designed enclosures and PoE power supplies, Pharos products operate flawlessly in temperatures ranging from -22 degrees F (-30 C) to 158 degrees F (+70 C), perfect for almost any climate.
TP-LINK’s Pharos Series uses MAXtream TDMA Technology, which allows complex networks to run while avoiding throughput disruptions that inevitably result from wireless competition between CPEs, component parts, and base stations.
To improve the quality of long distance wireless connections, Pharos products introduce advanced Tx Beamforming technology with its MIMO system, which greatly enhances received signal strength and data transmission efficiency between devices, increasing the achievable distances of wireless signals.
The centralized management software boasts an easy-to-use interface which helps administrators easily manage all devices on their network with functions like device discovery, status monitoring, firmware upgrading, network maintenance, and a plethora of advanced configuration options.
TP-LINK’s Pharos series will be shown from January 7-10, 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center – Booth No. 36206. South Hall 4, Upper Level. The products will be available in the third quarter of 2014.
