What Is High-Density

Driven by the adoption of IoT and the need for wireless by more people carrying more devices than ever before, much higher demands and challenges for WiFi solutions in high-density environments are raised. High-density WiFi environments are locations with hundreds or even thousands of WiFi clients in a given area. Common cases are the hotel meeting rooms, lecture halls, or even sports stadiums, theaters, and shopping malls. Due to the growing demands, high-density WiFi solutions will remain an important part of enterprise network upgrading in the years to come.

Evolving Issues in High-Density Networks

As Density Increases, Performance Deteriorates

Businesses need quality WiFi to keep employees productive and customers happy. However, a large amount of services, applications, and devices are placing an increasing strain on WiFi networks. Limits of WiFi capacity lead to unnecessary dropped connections and constant buffering. When data demand hits critical mass, it tends to result in data packets loss, exerting negative impact on business productivity.

More WiFi Creates More Interference

Imaging 100 people talking in your ear on and on, how would that feeling be? You won't hear anything at all. Two reasons for poor WiFi performance are co-channel Interference (CCI)—using the same channel, and adjacent channel interference (ACI)—using separate channels but with cross-over. Massive WiFi signals could interfere with each other, creating massive issues for users in high density locations.

TP-Link Omada High-Density WiFi Solution

TP-Link's Omada EAP Series products provide a range of capable indoor solutions engineered to meet the increasing demands of high-density networks. For public locations with a high density of end users, WiFi infrastructure should be able to handle concurrent access from a large number of devices, while also maintain stable and secure WiFi. Features such as portal authentication and multi-site management are essential to allow modern business to create a customized network that's suitable for themselves and their customers.

Application Scenarios

  • Public sites with a high volume of mobile devices require stable and uninterrupted WiFi such as airports and stadiums.
  • Large campuses with multiple floors and distributed buildings require high network throughput and full WiFi coverage such as schools, hotels, and dormitories.
  • Temporary sites crowded with many users and terminals such concerts and special events.

What's the Difference in High-Density Design

How many WiFi clients can a high-density AP support?

When we are talking about performance, it is always under specific conditions. Theoretically, the high-end WiFi 6 APs like EAP660 HD and EAP620 HD are capable of supporting 1000+ concurrent WiFi clients. In real-world scenarios, the maximum recommended client density is dependent on environmental conditions.

  • Comparison of Client Number between HD AP and Non-HD AP

To evaluate the improvement that a high-density AP can achieve compared to APs without HD capability, the concurrent clients simulation tests of EAP660 HD, EAP620 HD, and an AC1750 Non High-Density WiFi 5 Access Point were conducted.
According to the results of the tests, Omada WiFi 6 HD APs greatly improve overall capacity and network quality especially when used for bandwidth-intensive activities, compared to standard WiFi 5 APs without high-density capability. The numbers may vary depending on the models and conditions of the client devices, as well as the network environment where the access points are deployed.

How much performance capability can a high-density AP achieve?

  • Comparison of Throughput between TP-Link WiFi 6 HD AP and its Competitor

The throughput test was conducted to evaluate Omada EAP660 HD’s throughput performance at different distances and its ability of penetrating walls, while comparing it to other brands' equivalent WiFi 6 HD APs.
With cutting-edge hardware and software design, TP-Link EAP660 HD demonstrated satisfying wireless performance in most test situations and surpassed the competitive WiFi 6 AP in both two-walled and three-walled tests. The ability of EAP660 HD is powerful, and is believed to be a reliable choice.

Why Choose TP-Link High-Density Solution


Larger Capacity for High-Density Environments

Omada WiFi 6 and WiFi 5 APs improve efficiency and ensure top-tier performance for high-density locations like shopping malls, supermarkets, and restaurants. The high-end WiFi 6 HD AP provides a maximum of 1000+ concurrent clients. In real-world scenarios, the maximum recommended client density is dependent on environmental conditions.

Seamless Roaming

Ensure customers enjoy uninterrupted streaming when moving around by switching clients automatically to the access points with the optimal signal.

Band Steering

With a dual-band network, client devices will be steered by the network and will be connected to the band that is relatively free.

Load Balance

This feature is to balance the number of users across APs, in case that a single AP has too many clients while the others are idle.

Auto Channel Selection

To prevent overlapping channel interferences, the AP automatically adjusts the channels of the radios to avoid co-channel interferences and increase efficiency.



Omada Mesh Technology

Omada Mesh Technology enables wireless connectivity between access points for extended range, making wireless deployments more flexible and convenient.
