TP-Link released the Omada OC200 cloud controller on Oct. 17, designed for centralized management of TP-Link wireless network devices.
The Omada OC200 allows for cloud-connected troubleshooting anywhere in the world. IT personnel can monitor statics in real-time, view analysis of network traffic, create captive portals, and issue upgrades to devices on the network.
The cloud-enabled management software comes with the one-time payment of the Omada OC200, no subscription required. The control panel can be accessed through the Omada web portal and the Omada smartphone app.
Its security features include wireless MAC filtering, rogue AP detection, and client-to-client wireless isolation. The Omada OC200 also provide the ability to set up captive portals using Facebook WiFi and SMS authentication for guest network access.
Requiring only 5W to operate, the Omada OC200 can be powered using PoE 802.3af, PoE 802.3at, or a micro USB cable.
Released alongside the Omada OC200 is the EAP225-AC1200 wireless MU-MIMO access point. It acts both as a wireless access point as well as a three-port switch.
The Omada OC200 cloud management controller and the EAP225 wireless access point are available now for $99.99 and $89.99 respectively. Both can be purchased through a variety of retailers and distributors.
