How to choose EAP products

1. What is the usage scenario of EAP products

TP-Link EAP series solutions contains three types of access points to realize totally Wi-Fi coverage indoor and outdoor:

Ceiling Mount AP -- suitable for relative larger indoor public places such as office, stadium, lobby, etc.

Wall Plate AP -- suitable for small room-intensive indoor scenarios like hotel, dormitory, etc.

Outdoor AP -- suitable for outdoor public scenarios like swimming pool, garden, etc.

 

2. What is the recommended Wi-Fi coverage area of each EAP?

The recommended coverage radius of each indoor EAP is about 15m (50ft). For each outdoor EAP is 100m (330ft).

3. What is the recommended clients of each EAP?

The recommended clients of each single band EAP (such as EAP110, EAP115) is 30 of 2.4GHz radio. The recommended clients of each dual band EAP (such as EAP225, EAP245) is 70, 30 of 2.4GHz radio and 40 of 5GHz radio.

4. What is the recommended Channel Distribution for 2.4GHz channels and 5GHz channels?

Channel plan can help to reduce the RF interference and improve the network performance greatly, especially in some high congested wireless environment.

For 2.4G channels, to reduce the RF interference, we can reuse the non-overlapping channel 1, 6, 11 on the adjacent APs. And sometimes, we need to adjust the Tx power to avoid the co-channel interference across the areas.

 

For 5GHz channels, because there is no overlap among 5GHz channels, we just need to make sure adjacent APs work on different 5GHz channels.
