Hello to all!  I am a new user and have been on ubiquiti for years on their hardware and switching over to TPLink.   I have many users and need something similar to Unifi to manage easily on a web portal.  I have all cloud key controllers on networks and thought I would do the same here buying a OC200 and the Eap245 for AP's.  I prefer all POE switches and want them all TPLink also to power everything POE.  I want the router to also be TPLink and very easy to use and very reliable.  Most networks are 50 computers and down.... small to medium size businesses.  I do have some with Airmax radios too for building to building wireless bridges.

 

Making a great decision here swapping over to TPlink???

What devices are best for this layout? 

What device is best too for pure outdoor AP need 2.4 and 5ghz and 1gb throughput.

 

Thanks!!!!!!

For outdoor EAP you can choose EAP225-outdoor. 

https://www.tp-link.com/en/business-networking/outdoor-ap/eap225-outdoor/#specifications

 

For indoor EAP, it seems that you already have EAP245.

 

For PoE switch you can choose T1600G-28PS or T1600G-52PS. Their difference is 28 ports and 52 ports.

 

For the gateway, suggest ER6120 V3.

@Andone  Will soon all the AP's and switches be able to be managed in the OC200?  Which router is best for a small client of about 5 computers or less?

 

Thx!

It seems that TP-Link may release a solution for centralized management soon. If you want all network devices can be managed by controller. I think you can wait for the solution released.

 

If you don't need centralized management, suggest ER6120 or ER5120 for 50 computers. ER6120 supports VPN. ER5120 doesn't support VPN. These two routers may not support centrelized management of the new solution.

@Andone Thank you very much!!!!  Can you list what routers will work in the OC200 in centralized management?  I really need that for all my networks if possible..

It may be a new model or new hardware version for the router to support  centralized management. I don't have the detail information as well. Maybe can wait the released information of TP-Link official website.
