There seems to be a new Pharos device in the pipeline: the CPE610 5GHz 300Mbps 23dBi Outdoor CPE. Looks pretty much like Ubiquiti's LiteBeam:






AP is built into the antenna feed:






Nice! :D


BTW: a new firmware version TP_Pharos_V2.1.6_170908 has been released for the Pharos series.

indeed a bugfix release is out...any insight wrt. the standard font size used compared to 2.1.0? and indeed a LiteBeam clone...
Now serving finite customer via f(x)=AirTime/∞ on the 5Ghz band :-/

Unfortunately nothing changed in font size and also not for the CPE210 spectrum analyzer (mostly unusable for std 2.4 GHz due to extended frequency band w/o band selection as in CPE510).

See http://www.tp-link.de/download/CPE510.html#Firmware

Note 1: I'm not sure wether it is only for EU devices, but since description mentions EU/US, it might work with all devices, not only the hardware sold in the EU. Flash on your own risk on non-EU devices.

Note 2: For CPE210 hardware version 1 you will need to flash the firmware file on the CPE510 download page. For CPE210 version 2 there is another firmware file on the CPE210 page.

re: 2.1.6 firmware - albeit a tad late to the game. User login using the enter virtual key is restored on mobile devices (as per 2.0.0) and quite contrary to how 2.1.0 behaved.

re: CPE610, here's the user manual: https://fccid.io/TE7CPE610/User-Manual/User-Manual-3548567.pdf

Yes, user login using enter key works in 2.1.6 like it did before on laptops, too.

Another interesting product just was approved by FCC at Dec, 13th: Omada EAP225-Outdoor.
Finally, there is now an 802.11ac outdoor AP becoming availlable from TP-Link:

Looks exactly as the LBE-5AC-23 :) Chinaboys are copying around ... the software from ubiquiti is the best i saw so i will stay at Ubiquiti with things i need more than 1000 m away.

BTW: I get 600 Mbit netto over my LBE equipment ... tp_link told about 300 mbit ;)

Yes. :-) In Asian culture someone who can make good copies will become as famous as in Western culture celebrities or stars. It's another culture and BTW it's much older than, for example, US culture.

Ah, ok. Let's see. This is AirOS:






And this is Pharos:






Hmmmmmmm. :)


Me thinks, Ubiquiti and TP-Link both buy their software from the same software vendor for outdoor APs. Except that for the spectrum analyzer AirOS requires you to install Java, while Pharos uses plain HTML5. But remaining functionality is much the same. I compared Pharos with AirOS on an UBNT AirGrid M2, which I sold just these days on eBay b/c I changed to 5 GHz band using TP-Link's CPE510 for a 600m link. 2.4 GHz didn't work well, even not with the AirGrid.

So much for "my software is better then yours" ROTFL. At least I tried both products before judging. For the money saved I bought a bottle of finest Russian vodka. Cheeers and happy new year! ;)

Nope this is the airOs from the old non AC devices ... Youre right that the previous software is nearly the same but not airOs 8
Like this one :




The LBE-5AC-23 is at 50 dollar ... so we have to wait what comes next

I see. However, the CPE610 resembles the LBE-M5-23, not the LBE-5AC-23. It's like comparing the EAP225-Outdoor to a non-AC device from UBNT. Most often, the hard- and software of WiFi gear is made by the chip manufacturer. So if the vendors use a certain chip, the devices are not that much different.
