    TP-Link announced two new ceiling-mounted Wireless AC access points designed for SMBs and small campus environments, including schools, restaurants and hotels.

    Similarly designed, the first of the two dual-band access points is the AC1900 TP-Link EAP330. The faster of the two announced APs, the EAP330 delivers link rates up to 600 Mbps at 2.4 GHz and 1300 Mbps at 5 GHz. The EAP330 also features two Gigabit Ethernet ports for 2 Gbps link aggregation for better bandwidth in high traffic zones.

    The second dual-band access point is the AC1200 EAP320, which supports maximum link rates of 300 Mbps at 2.4 GHz and 867 Mbps at 5 GHz.

    Aside from the two AP’s different speeds and the EAP330s’ link aggregation capability, the two APs share featured traits, including Beamforming, Band Steering and Airtime Fairness. Both APs are fanless and powered by a Broadcom chipset, and also support Captive Portal for visitor authentication, multiple SSID support and can be managed and scaled using the free EAP Controller Software.

    The physical design for TP-Link’s EAP330 and EAP320 APs allows for wall and ceiling mounted installations, and placement is further facilitated with the products’ support for PoE.

    Available now, the TP-Link EAP330 and TP-Link EAP320 cost $199.99 and $149.99, respectively.
