TP-Link has unveiled three new products in its Omada range.
Omada SDN integrates network devices, including access points, switches, gateways to deliver a complete centralised cloud management for highly scalable networks controlled from a single interface. It provides fast, reliable wireless connections with Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 6, as well as 10 GE, 2.5 GE, and GE wired connections, ideal for use in hospitality, education, retail, offices and various other scenarios.
The company has announced the new arrival of the AC1750 Wireless MU-MIMO Gigabit Ceiling Mount Access Point (EAP265 HD), JetStream 28-Port Gigabit Smart Switch with 24-Port PoE+ (TL-SG2428P) and JetStream 10-Port Gigabit Smart Switch with 8-Port PoE+ (TL-SG2210MP).
Integrating into the Omada SDN, the components combine to create a highly efficient network, intelligent network monitoring and centralised cloud management through the Omada app. Combined with AI-driven technology, Omada helps IT staff to automatically analyse potential network problems and receive optimisation suggestions to improve network efficiency.
The easy-to-use Omada app dashboard makes it easy to see the real-time network status, check the network usage and traffic distribution, or even track key data for better business results. Cloud access makes the centralised management of different sites simple for network managers, regardless of scale or number of devices in the network.
Advanced Performance in High-Density Environments
Equipped with Fast Dual-Band Wi-Fi speeds totalling 1750 Mbps*, MU-MIMO, Load Balance and professional antennas, the EAP265 HD access point connects more devices simultaneously and improves capacity in high-density environments. The EAP265 HD supports both standard 802.3af/at and Passive PoE (PoE adapter included) for flexible installations.
Meanwhile, the solution supports 802.11k/v for Signal Auto Transition to unlock seamless roaming, ensuring that video streams and voice calls are unaffected as users move between locations. EAP265 HD also provides a secure guest network, with multiple authentication options (SMS, Facebook Wi-Fi, Voucher, etc.) and abundant wireless security technologies to suit the needs of any business type or environment.
The launch of the JetStream TL-SG2210MP and TL-SG2428P Gigabit Smart PoE Switches provide high-speed connections for various networks, device and site requirements. The TL-SG2210MP switch has a 150 W PoE power budget with 8× 802.3at/af-compliant PoE+ ports and 2× gigabit SFP Slots and abundant security strategies enabled by built-in LAN Area Investment Protection.
For sites with greater device and power requirements, the TL-SG2428P provides 250 W total PoE power budget with 24× 802.3at/af-compliant PoE+ ports and 4× gigabit SFP Slots, enabling businesses to scale with seamless network connectivity. Both switches contain robust security strategies (IP-MAC-Port Binding, ACL, Port Security, DoS Defend, Storm Control, DHCP Snooping, 802.1X, Radius Authentication), with voice and video applications optimised through L2/L3/L4 QoS and IGMP snooping. Centralised cloud management is delivered through integration with the Omada SDN platform.
“SDN matches the agility of modern business with dynamic and efficient network configuration, to improve performance and reliability at scale. As businesses grow, the reliance on efficient networks inevitably increases. Combining cloud management with AI-driven technology, SDN removes the complexity of managing existing networks, as well as centralising the configuration of new locations. Delivering on our promise of a cloud SDN business WiFi solution in the UK enables us to provide the capabilities needed to power highly efficient and scalable networks. With this technology, we can support businesses in meeting the connectivity demands of future workspaces,” commented Will Liu, Managing Director of TP-Link UK.
