Hi Everyone,


We’re excited to announce the official launch of EAP215-Bridge KIT/EAP211-Bridge KIT here!

 

The new indoor/outdoor APs with enhanced directional antenna are designed for business scenarios such as wireless network connection/security, point-to-point, and point-to-multipoint wireless connections between distributed buildings. They can be managed uniformly through Omada Controller.
 

The two-pack (KIT) product supports Auto-Pairing and creates a mesh network when plugged in, which will be easy to set up.

Note:

1. Maximum wireless transmission rates are the physical rates derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Range and coverage specifications, along with the number of connected devices, were defined according to test results under normal usage conditions. Actual wireless transmission rate, wireless coverage, and number of connected devices are not guaranteed and will vary as a result of 1) environmental factors, including building materials, physical objects, and obstacles; 2) network conditions, including local interference, volume and density of traffic, product location, network complexity, and network overhead; and 3) client limitations, including rated performance, location, connection quality, and client condition.

2. All products are tested in real outdoor environments. Actual range and throughput depend on the transmission power and environmental factors such as wireless interference, obstacles, weather, etc.

3. Protection against lightning and electro-static discharge may be achieved through proper product setup, grounding, and cable shielding. Refer to the instruction manual and consult an IT professional to assist with setting up this product.

4.These functions require the use of an Omada SDN controller.

 

 

Highlight Feature

 

 

  • RSSI LED Thresholds: RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator) is a measurement of how well your device can hear a signal from an access point or router. It’s a value that is useful for determining if you have enough signal to get a good wireless connection. You can infer that the higher the RSSI value but you can infer that the higher the RSSI value is, the better the signal is. e is, the better the signal is.

 

How to use: You can edit the RSSI value to help evaluate the signal strength. If you set RSSI Value higher, but the less signal LEDs on sub EAPs on, that means the signal received on the sub EAP worse.

 

 

  • Wireless Bridge APs: It is an option to create or show the mesh network between bridge EAPs.
     

How to use: Log into the web > Management > Wireless Bridge Aps > click on “Add Sub-AP”, the main EAP will auto scan the sub EAPs around it and then auto add them to the mesh network, without requiring to put in the login password of the sub EAPs.

 

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

Q1. Can EAP Bridge KIT model build Mesh network with ER706W/ER706W-4G EAP225-Outdoor/EAP610-Outdoor/EAP650-Outdoor and other indoor EAPs?
 

No. Currently it’s only support to build mesh between EAP bridge Models. You will get error message “The child AP that supports P2P must be select the parent AP that also supports P2P."

     

Q2. How you suggest to install the EAP Bridge KIT outside to build point to point network?

 

It is necessary to ensure that the field of view between the EAP-Bridge is wide, unobstructed, and within each other's Horizontal Beamwidth. It’s suggested to place the sub AP ensure face to the fronts of the Root AP, and mounted at the same height as the root AP.
You can use the compass tool on your phone to determine the installation direction. You can also evaluate signal strength via the AP's signal LED or uplink negotiated rate and adjust placement accordingly.

Interesting product and I like that it can be managed by Omada Controller, curious if it can be added to a site like standard meshed devices, or if it operates as its own site.

 

Also, it looks like you can have up to 4 sub-APs per master, but I'm struggling with how useful that is with either 35' or 70' directional antennas only available, it would perhaps have been more flexible with the option to add an omni dipole accessory so that a single master AP could support sub-APs in 360' albeit at reduced range.

 

Also interesting that a 2.4G access radio was not included, especially since some older/cheaper surveillance/IOT devices don't have 5.8G capability.

 

Thanks for the update!

I have two Omada sites right now, and it happens that in both of them the internet access is at one end of the site, and then there are several buildings (not exactly in a row) going further away in one direction. So the traditional option would be to run cables A->B, B->C, C->D or so. Or do a mesh A-B-C and hope D is in range of C. :)

 

In this case, I could put one EAP-21x Bridge at A, and then a client EAP-21x at B, C, D and all of them have direct routes to the internet. Of course this does mean any traffic from B to C or D would need to traverse via A. I could also put client bridges as B & D, and just run a cable from B-C or C-D. 

In short, I see a lot of utility in this design even if it's limited in angle, and I hope it's available in the US market very quickly.
