TP-LINK today launched the 802.11a/n Wi-Fi compatible TP-LINK Pharos CPE510 outdoor wireless access point - a 5GHz 300Mbps 13dBi CPE (Customer Premises Equipment) - for point-to-point, point-to-multipoint and outdoor Wi-Fi coverage applications. Outdoor wireless access points can provide WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) coverage over great distances to homes or cottages without cable/DSL services; campus and multiple buildings; point-to-point links between office buildings; and at remote job sites in industries such as oil and gas, mining, and construction.

The CPE510 will greatly appeal to Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) for point-to-multipoint link communications, when extending coverage across a wide geographic area to customers. The new outdoor wireless access point also offers remote surveillance capabilities via an available second Ethernet port with software enabled PoE (Power over Ethernet) output for seamless IP camera connectivity. The CPE510 can operate in multiple modes: Wireless Access Point (AP), AP Client Router, AP Repeater, AP Router, Multi-Bridge, and AP Client Router WISPs.



Designed for Harsh Environments
With an outdoor weatherproof enclosure and industrial-level hardware design, the CPE510 is specially engineered to operate in harsh environments under myriad weather conditions; operating temperatures range from -30°C to +70°C; and the CPE510 has up to 15KV ESD (Electrostatic Discharges) and 6000V lightning protection.

High Power and Performance
The CPE510 boasts an adjustable wireless transmission power of up to 500mw and has a built-in 13dBi 2x2 dual-polarized directional MIMO (Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output) antenna for improved performance: long distance wireless data transmission of over 15km1 can be achieved. The CPE510 also uses a proprietary protocol called Pharos MAXtream when in TDMA (Time-Division-Multiple-Access) mode, greatly improving product throughput, capacity and latency. Other performance features include a dedicated metal reflector in the antenna system for higher gain and lower noise interference, and an advanced Tx (Transmit) Beamforming technology.

Centralized Management Software
The CPE510 comes equipped with centralized management software - TP-LINK Pharos Control - helping users easily manage all the devices in their network from the comfort of a single PC. Functions include device discovery, status monitoring, firmware upgrading, and network maintenance.

Highlights
  • High-quality Qualcomm Atheros enterprise chipset
  • 5GHz operating frequency ensures fewer disturbances and provides more available channels
  • Selectable bandwidth of 5/10/20/40MHz
  • Adjustable transmission power from 0 to 27dBm/500mw
  • Dual Ethernet ports and grounding terminal integrated
  • Passive PoE adapter (up to 60 meter deployment) with ESD protection circuitry and remote reset capability
  • Offers signal strength and Client Connection Quality (CCQ) indicators for antenna alignment
  • Tools include Throughput Monitor, Spectrum Analyzer, Speed Test and Ping
"TP-LINK outdoor wireless access points are designed for optimal bandwidth, speed, and extended wireless coverage, says Mark Macaulay, director of sales for TP-LINK Canada. "The new CPE510 joins the proven TP-LINK Pharos line-up of outdoor wireless access points for small business and enterprise customers."
Macaulay adds, "The CPE510 outdoor wireless access point is ideal for Canada's extreme weather conditions and remote geographic landscape."

Availability and Pricing
The TP-LINK Pharos CPE510 is available now at a suggested list price of $79.99.

Yes, but a 5Ghz signal attenuates faster being a higher energy RF wave than 2.4Ghz regardless of physical barriers. On the other hand 5Ghz offers more bandwidth. I'm still surprised it isn't dual-band though.

Ouch, that is ungodly expensive !!! I wouldn't want to advertise for any company but with TP Link coming out with a similar product I guess it is fair to mention the fact that Uniquiti gear has offered this kind of performance (and on 2.4 GHz band as well for those who need this kind of connectivity) for quite some time now, at about half the cost of your antenna (per side). It should get you well past the 3.5 km mark too (5+ km is perfectly plausible given line of sight and almost empty Fresnel zone).
