Model: WBS510  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

Hi again,

 

i'm curious to understand what product should i buy:

 

I'm writing what i have understood:

 

  • WBS510: is a powerful base station, must be connected to a TL-ANT5830MD (10Km) or to a TL-ANT2415MS (5Km). One poed ethernet cable go from router to base station and the other from base station to switch.
  • CPE510: is the old WBS510: it doesn't have external antenna just plug ethernet cables!
  • CPE610: is used for connect less 3 Km, also here: one poed ethernet cable go from router to base station and the other from base station to switch.
  • TL-ANT5830B: it's just an antenna. How long can it reach? Where should i the antenna connect? Can i connect the antenna to a WBS510? 

 

Thanks and sorry for the confusion.

Have a nice day!

 

Andrea P.

Transmit power is the same on all WBS510, CPE510, CPE520, CPE610. It is up to 500mW (FCC countries). The difference is in antennas. If you connect WBS510 to TL-ANT5830MD from both sides of the link, you can reach more than 10km, if you have good conditions. I met 30km links in real life. TL-ANT2415MS is sector antenna, so angle is wider. One "non poed" cable from router goes to PoE-injetor, after that cable from PoE-injector goes to WBS to power it, while switch you can connect anywhere (to the router port, you can connect it to the port and then connect poe-injector there, it doesn't matter. I think, it is not very comfy to connect switch directly to AP)

 

  • CPE510: is the old WBS510: it doesn't have external antenna just plug ethernet cables!

No, it is not old WBS. It has internal antenna 12dbi. WBS - wireless base station, is a Base Station, while CPE is a client-side device. Usually, to provide WISP service, you set up WBS510+TL-ANT2415MS for some angle, and you connect clients with CPE inside this angle. You also can use CPEs for creating link point-to-point, if you need 2km or so.

 

  • CPE610: is used for connect less 3 Km, also here: one poed ethernet cable go from router to base station and the other from base station to switch.

No, CPE610 has 23dbi antenna with very narrow angle, so beam is good. I didn't touch it, but I am sure the link could be about 10km, even more maybe.

 

  • TL-ANT5830B: it's just an antenna. How long can it reach? Where should i the antenna connect? Can i connect the antenna to a WBS510?

Yes, it is EOL antenna. Old antenna, before Pharos series was introduced. It was used for TL-WA7510N, it is not MIMO, so, yeah, EOL. Forget about it. You need 2 pieces to connect to WBS510.

TL-ANT2415MS is not suitbale for WBS510 – it's frequency range is 2.3 to 2.7 GHz and thus suitable only for WBS210. I guess you meant TL-ANT5819MS for WBS510.

@Mitya 

 

Last question: if i choose CPE610 where should i connect ethernet cable?

I would like to continue with Omada Series, can't i just connect the cable to a poe switch and connect EAPs to switch?

 

Really thanks for your answer

@R1D2 Yes, you are right, my bad.

 

@AndreaPellegrin CPE610 is Pharos, not EAP. CPE610 doesn't support normal 802.3af/at PoE from tp-link switches, it supports only Passive PoE, so you will have Passive PoE injector in the package. You connect CPE610 to this injector, and this injector you connect to your switch. If this switch supports 802.3af/at PoE (what for?), you can connect there Omada. Your question is not really clear, but here it is how I would connect it.

It feels, like you want to do something like R1D2's solution here (https://community.tp-link.com/en/business/stories/detail/724)

Yes, you can connect EAPs to the PoE switch, but not the CPE as Mitya wrote already. Just connect the LAN port of CPE610's PoE injector to the switch which connects the EAPs to the directional link (if this is, what you mean with »continue with Omada series«).
