Wavelink WL-570HA1 Long Range Wifi AP

Wavelink offers WL-570HA1 long range wifi dual band Access Point with multiple operation modes. It is ideal for long range wifi network deployment such as in marine projects, mining industries and still more.

POE wireless AP

In traditional indoor wifi deployment, you may easily deploy any models of indoor POE wireless access point such as Ubiquiti Pro and TP-link business class WAP mounted on the wall or ceiling.

With wall or ceiling mounting, installation is easier for WAP that supports POE. With POE supports you don’t need to provide power outlet in area where power is not available such as on ceiling, what you need is to run a single CAT5e network cable from the AP device to the POE switch or POE injector. Most networking vendors offer business class AP with POE supports including Netgear WAC series, Linksys and TP-link.




 

For home network, POE is not so popular and wall / ceiling mounted is not popular either. For example TP-link AP500 which is designed with desktop form factor. Even today you can find wifi system for homes, easy to install and configure such as Netgear Orbi. Netgear Orbi wifi system is one of easy to deploy wifi network for homes, no hassle of running POE cable like those wireless POE access point. Instead of Orbi, many people prefer all-in-one wireless modem gateway such as Arris Surfboard SBG7580AC or the standard model of Arris SBG6700 cable modem router.
