20km+ Wireless Data Transmission

Specially designed for outdoor uses, ideal for long distance wireless data transmission over 20km+, tested in the field.

20km+

TP-LINK MAXtream TDMA Technology

As network scale increases, wireless competition and collisions among CPEs and base stations will be
so enormous that the real throughput of the network will drop, resulting in a serious impact on end-user
experience. To mitigate these effects, the CPE520 uses MAXtream TDMA Technology.

Pharos Control – Centralized Management System

CPE520 also comes equipped with centralized management software that helps users easily manage all the devices in their network from a single PC - Pharos Control. Functions like device discovery, status monitoring, firmware upgrading, and network maintenance can be managed using Pharos Control.
