How to build a Network for Internet Bar using tp-link products?

Small Internet bar, or called Café bar as well, can hold 30-50 people and has small business area and less network devices installed intensively, which provides not only the Internet access but also many other leisure and recreation services like café and food to give the customers better experience; large and medium Network bar can take in about 100-300 people and even more. This kind of bars are usually near the large schools and factories, they have more visitors and needs for Internet access. So the network equipment of the large and medium Internet bar should handle the larger date flow and have excellent performance in stability and processing capacity.

This article give out two tp-link solutions—one is for a small Internet bar taking 30-50 clients and another solution is for a larger bar taking 100-300 clients.

What are the basic needs of the Internet bar network?

Normally, an Internet bar network should meet the following needs:

  1. Reliability. The devices should work stable for a long time and provide redundancy.
  2. Security. The devices should block some network attacks and locate the attack source to protect the Network.
  3. Fluency. The devices should have great performance of processing capacity to guarantee the smooth of the Network.
  4. Manageable. The devices should be managed easily and have flexible expansibility.
  5. Economical. The devices should be high cost-effective compared with competitors.

What kind of solution can meet the needs of SMALL Internet bar network?

Here we provide a full solution including the network topology, product features and parameters.

 

Topology

What are the highlights of this solution?

  • High Reliability

The enterprise level devices can guarantee the stability of the network. And the Link Aggregation function of the switches can achieve link redundancy and backup which can enhance the reliability of the network.

  • Gigabit router and switch, can provide power date forwarding and processing ability to guarantee the fluency of the network and timely response.
  • Easy Managed
  • Support Utility and Web Interface, can be managed easily.
  • Flexible expansibility
  • Abundant network interfaces provide flexible and easy expansibility.
