[REVIEW] TP-Link CPE220 PharOS

Hi
Pada kesempatan kali ini saya akan melakukan review salah satu CPE 2,4Ghz yaitu TP-Link CPE220 dengan os PharOS. Sebelumnya saya tidak pernah menggunakan TP-Link Outdoor lain kecuali seri TL-WA5210G karena saya anggap cuma seri tersebut yang masih handal untuk PTP (point to point) jarak dekat.

Namun seiring perkembangan zaman, teknologi wireless G yang cuma mampu membawa bandwith maksimal 54Mbps dan juga kebutuhan akan teknologi MIMO untuk menembus padatnya interfensi. Saya akhirnya menjatuhkan pilihan terhadap varian CPE220.

Berikut Spesifikasi singkat CPE220 yang saya kutip dari website TP-Link Indonesia

2.4GHz 300Mbps 12dBi Outdoor CPECPE220

  • Antenna built-in MIMO dual-polarized directional 2×2 12dBi
  • Kekuatan transmisi yang bisa disesuaikan dari 0 sampai 30dBm/1000mw
  • Optimisasi tingkat sistem untuk transmisi data wireless jarak jauh sampai dengan 13km
  • Teknologi TP-LINK Pharos MAXtream (Time-Division-Multiple-Access) meningkatkan throughput, kapasitas dan kinerja latency, ideal untuk aplikasi PTMP
  • Sistem Manajemen terpusat – Pharos Kontrol
  • Mendukung mode operasi  AP / Client / Bridge / Repeater / AP Router / AP Client Router (WISP)
  • Adaptor Passive PoE mendukung penggunaan daya melalui Ethernet sampai dengan 60 meter (200 feet) dan memungkinkan perangkat direset secara remote

Bisa kawan-kawan lihat pada spesifikasi singkat di atas, CPE ini memiliki power yang lumayan besar yaitu 30dBm atau setara dengan 1W. Hampir setara dengan beberapa seri radio Mikrotik ataupun produk dari Ubiquity. CPE ini juga di klaim mampu melakukan transmisi data atau PTP hingga 13km.

Dalam CPE ini juga di sebutkan TP-Link menerapkan teknologi MAXtream. MAXtream sendiri hampir serupa dengan AirMax dari produk Ubiquity. Yang artinya teknologi ini hanya bisa di terapkan antar sesama produk TP-Link yang mendukung MAXtream.

Selain itu juga PharOs memilik manajemen kontrol terpusat yaitu Pharos kontrol. Bagi kawan-kawan yang sudah berpengalaman dengan Unify pasti paham dengan fitur satu ini walaupun saya sendiri belum pernah mencoba. Dan selanjutnya CPE ini mendukung bberapa mode yaitu AP, Client/Station, Bridge, Repeater, AP Router maupun WISP.

Salah satu keunggulan lainnya adalah, CPE ini pun sudah mengikuti tren zaman now, yaitu memiliki fitur remote reset yang terdapat apada adaptornya. Jadi kawan-kawan apabila ingin melakukan reset, bisa dilakukan dari bawah tanpa perlu repot naik turun tower. CPE ini juga sudah dilengkapi dengan 6KV proteksi terhadap petir.

Test PTP
Setelah saya jelaskan secara singkat Spesifikasi dari si CPE ini, saatnya kita melakukan uji PTP. AP pusat saya menggunakan produk dari mikrotik dengan jarak sekitar 700m. Halangan tidak terlalu berarti walaupun ada bangunan bertingkat dan pepohonan. Untuk memunculkan top performa, saya sett country menjadi Test_Mode.

Wireless Registration pada Mikrotik

Minus
Sejauh ini saya belum menemukan apa yang menjadi kelemahan dari radio ini. Satu yang saya sayangkan adalah, dengan kemampuan membawa 300Mbps, seharusnya sudah dilengkapi dengan LAN Gigabyte. Dan berikut Spesifikasi lengkap dari CPE220:
