TP-LINK CPE520 5GHz 300Mbps 16dBi Outdoor CPE TL-CPE520


TP-LINK CPE520 5GHz 300Mbps 16dBi Outdoor CPE TL-CPE520



TP-LINK’s 5GHz 300Mbps 16dBi Outdoor CPE, the CPE520 is dedicated to cost effective solutions for outdoor wireless networking applications. With its centralized management application, it is flexible and ideal for point-to-point, point-to-multipoint and outdoor Wi-Fi coverage applications. Professional performance, coupled with user-friendly design, makes CPE520 an ideal choice for both business and home users.

Enterprise Hardware

With Qualcomm Atheros enterprise level chipsets, high gain antennas and high quality material, specially designed enclosure, and PoE power supply, CPE520 is specially designed for outdoor use and can operate flawlessly in almost any climate, with operating temperatures ranging from -30C (-22F) to 70 C (158F).

Advanced Antenna System

Built-in High Gain Dual-Polarized Antenna

Dedicated metal reflector ensures higher gain and lower noise interference

20km Wireless Data Transmission

Specially designed for outdoor uses, ideal for long distance wireless data transmission over 20km , tested in the field.

TP-LINK MAXtream TDMA Technology

As network scale increases, wireless competition and collisions among CPEs and base stations will be so enormous that the real throughput of the network will drop, resulting in a serious impact on end-user experience. To mitigate these effects, the CPE520 uses MAXtream TDMA Technology.

Pharos Control – Centralized Management System

CPE520 also comes equipped with centralized management software that helps users easily manage all the devices in their network from a single PC – Pharos Control. Functions like device discovery, status monitoring, firmware upgrading, and network maintenance can be managed using Pharos Control.
