TP-Link® Announces New AC1900 and AC1200 Access Points for Small Businesses, Hotels, Restaurants and Schools

SAN DIMAS, Calif. – July 26, 2016 – TP-Link®, a leading global provider of consumer and business networking products, today unveiled two new wireless dual band gigabit ceiling mount access points (APs), the EAP330 and the EAP320, providing high-speed AC1900 and AC1200 Wi-Fi*, respectively. Both APs feature a business-grade, Broadcom chipset, include free easy-to-use management software and provide powerful Wi-Fi for small businesses, school campuses, restaurants and hospitality buildings or hotels.

“Small businesses, hotels and restaurants need a reliable and user-friendly way to deliver high performance Wi-Fi to their employees and patrons,” said Lewis Wu, executive vice president of TP-Link USA. “The EAP330 and the EAP320 provide high-speed internet and a number of other business-class features that will eliminate Wi-Fi traffic jams in heavy usage areas.”

TP-Link APs are equipped with a number of key features that will improve the performance of connected devices on your business network, including Airtime Fairness, which prevents Wi-Fi interruption and allows devices to run faster and more reliably. Beamforming also helps by creating highly targeted Wi-Fi connections, resulting in up to 30 percent improvement in throughput for wireless devices. Finally, Band-Steering automatically moves dual band devices onto the access point’s wider 5GHz band, managing traffic to enable faster connections.

EAP330 and EAP320 access points also come with free EAP Controller Software, which makes it easy to set up and control hundreds of access points from a centralized location, no dedicated IT staff needed. You can easily monitor statistics, create a captive portal, manage traffic, map and run a free, customized site survey, upgrade and reboot your system, or even scale your network as needed.
