Richmond-based 17,000 sq. ft site transforms with full implementation of cloud-controlled WiFi solutions
Eurosat, the UK’s largest satellite and aerial equipment distributor to the trade and TP-Link UK®, a leading global provider of consumer and business networking products today announce their latest partnership. The two companies have successfully provided a cloud-enabled business-class wireless network to a London-based office.
The 17,000 sq. ft office space in Richmond was transformed when work began in July 2020. A full Grade A refurbishment was conducted across five floors, with Eurosat supplying the site with a complete enterprise-grade infrastructure, featuring TV Satellite feeds, 760 Cat6A points and 48 patch panels. This included full implementation of high-specification wired and TP-Link wireless networking solutions, designed to future proof the office as the connectivity requirements of the office building increase.
To create a seamless wireless network, a total of 25 TP-Link AC1750 Wireless MU-MIMO Gigabit Ceiling Mount Access Point (EAP245) units were supplied and installed throughout the building. As part of TP-Link’s Omada cloud Software-Defined Networking (SDN) range, the EAP245 provides superior business Wi-Fi performance and supports seamless roaming, to ensure video streams and voice calls are unaffected as users move between locations.
The cloud-controlled access points streamlined network configuration to save time, whilst the centralised management, various authentication options and intelligent monitoring through the Omada app will simplify ongoing management and security for the office’s network managers. With advanced 802.11ac Wave 2 MU-MIMO technology, EAP245’s deliver 1750 Mbps Wi-Fi speeds and long-range coverage over 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless bands.
“From enterprise equipment to everyday digital communication tools, the office of the future will be increasingly underpinned by connectivity, with networks at the heart of these efforts. Working closely with our longstanding specialist partner, Eurosat, we have successfully provided the network infrastructure required to keep offices and the businesses in the buildings operating effectively within the space,” commented Will Liu, Managing Director of TP-Link UK.
“In partnership with TP-Link’s suite of business WiFi solutions, we have proudly delivered on what has been a highly technical project. As network quality becomes increasingly core to the efficiency of modern buildings, we will continue to support TP-Link’s growing focus on business WiFi and work together to create a safe, connected and effective working environment for our customers,” commented Milan Patel, General Manager at Eurosat.
