How to Choose the Best Wireless & WiFi Device

Confused when determining Wireless & WiFi Access Point (AP) for BTS or client station (CPE) when creating a wireless or wifi network?

There are poly types and types for each brand,

WiFi or Wireless devices are not infrequently called using “radio”, if I say radio then you already understand what it means.

determine the right wireless radio / wifi as a determinant of the capacity & quality of wirelessdanamp network; Your WiFi.

After reading this article I guarantee you can determine the right wireless radio for all needs,

start according to making WiFi, BTS or for client station. Tips for Choosing Wireless Radio & WiFi

This is a tip on how to determine wireless radio and wifi for the benefit of forming a wifi-based or wireless internet network.

I reveal according to the angle of the operator (not the client / regular user) such as ISP or RT RW Net.

Wireless radio has features and technology that are not aligned, you don’t need to know everything.

But it’s good you understand some important things about wireless radio as capital to be able to choose a device synchronous needs. Understand what Radio CPE & Base Station is

In the wireless network topology there are two types of devices installed on bts as AP and on the client as a station.

Radio in BTS is claimed Accesspoint (AP) / Base Station which benefits to receive and serve connections to poly radio client (CPE).

Such topology is considered point to multi point (PtMP), where one AP radio serves using a poly radio client.

While on the client side used CPE type devices into receiver stations.

Customer premises equipment (CPE) is a term for a receiving device mounted on the client side.

CPE radio is generally cheaper than special radios for AP base stations, because the spec is indeed lower. WIRELESS RADIO AP BTS Is Different From Client Station (CPE)

The first thing that is misguided among partners who are just learning wireless networks is,

using a non-synchronous radio design with the estimate “pake this is capable & cheap”

Indeed all wireless radios can be made for all modes (AP, client / station & repeater).

But what many people do not understand is that the capacity / ability of the radio is limited.

if used in excess the result will not be maximal and the device becomes damaged quickly.

Wireless radios designed specifically for AP BTS (PtMP connections) have a higher spec than CPE radios.

The goal is to be able to handle connections based on poly clients connected to the BTS AP.

While the spec CPE is mediocre because it is only designed to be a client that connects to one AP radio in BTS.

Although able to use CPE radio for AP BTS PtMP the results will not be maximal and will shorten the life of CPE because it is over-overed. Use the Best BTS AP, CPE Can Adjust

I recommend making an investment in AP BTS PtMP radio, using wireless radio that is designed for AP,

Don’t use CPE radio for AP BTS.

The price is a little expensive according to CPE but it is worth its capacity, performance &endurance.

If you already have a beautiful AP BTS radio then to save you can adjust the type of CPE client radio.

The closer the gap between the client and BTS just use cheap CPE radio,

Further it needs to be balanced using CPE whose spec is relatively high. Frekuansi Must Be The Same Between BTS & Client Station

There are two types of generic wireless radio frequency bands used: 2.4GHz and 5GHz.

Ap 5GHz wireless radio can only communicate with 5GHz client/station radios, as well as 2.4GHz radios.

In essence, the radio frequency ap BTSdan Client / station must be the same rather both can be connected to each other. Use 5GHz Frequency

The price of a two.4GHz wireless device is a little cheaper than 5GHz, but I recommend choosing 5GHz.

Because the frequency of two.4GHz poly is used by many devices, starting based on video sender, mouse / mic wireless, microwave, wireless camera and still poly again.

As a result, internet connections that use 2.4GHz frequency radio are easily disrupted (interference) by other electronic devices.

The 5GHz frequency is only used by wireless network devices, so the probability of interference is low.

The 5GHz frequency is also more resistant to weather disturbances such as rain.

In the future the frequency of two.4GHz is also starting to be abandoned, just look now for WiFi HP alone has supported the frequency of 5GHz.Choose Minimum Protocol 802.11 n

Remember the basic discussion of wireless networking & WiFi?

If you haven’t read it, read it first so you don’t fret ^_^

There is discussed about the wireless protocol standards & frequency.

Starting from the wireless standard 802.11 a, b, g, n, ac and ad

If the ac standard is too expensive for you, at least choose a wireless radio that already uses the 802.11 n protocol.

Do not worry about compatibility, because the protocol standards below it will be automatically supported.

In theory, wireless radio with a standard of 802.11 n already has a bandwidth capacity of 150-600Mbps, depending on how many chain antennas are used.

Of course, the greater the capacity the more expensive the price, so choose synchronous capacity required. Protocol 802.11 ac for more capacity

The speed written on the spec/label is sometimes not the same as the results on the field.

Because in the field there are many factors that can reduce the capacity of wireless links,

start based on the distance between AP & client, iterference, antenna type, signal strength, noise, altitude & so on.

To get the capacity is more likely you can change the antenna, but the cheapest option is to change the radi using the protocol above it.

For example, the former 802.11n radio pakei can be replaced using 802.11 ac. Ap wireless radio protocol must be the same as Client/station

If the BTS AP radio uses the AC series then the client is also required to use AC.

Similarly, with other standard protocols, it’s just that there are several radios that can be selected wireless protocol.

So please check in the spec of the wireless radio you are going to buy. Use One Brand

Indeed all wireless radios follow the existing standard protocol both 802.11 a, b, g, n, ac, ad.

The goal is that all radios (although not synchronous brands) can be connected (compatible) and not tied to one brand only.

But even so, using multiple brands on one wireless network is not recommended,

In practice in the field using one brand of wireless radio will result in better quality and network capacity.

The reason is because each brand also makes its own specific protocol (secret recipe) to boost the performance of the device to be superior based on other brands.

This particular protocol is not compatible using other brands, so to get the best performance use one brand device.

AP brand tplink time combined using tents the result of the link is ugly,

but the result is different when combined with the tplink brand as well.

With the same distance and location the results will be much better when using the same brand.

So the conclusion is “use the same brand for the best performance” between AP Base station and CLient station. How to Choose the Best WIFI AP Tool

Remember wifi networks are different from outdoor wireless networks,

start based on the target device, pause range, capacity, antenna type, technology and device.

WiFi is intended for mobile devices and IoT devices such as HP, tablets, laptops, and other devices that support WiFi.

WiFi AP to create a commonly known hotspot using WiFi Router.

The selection of the right tools will determine the quality of the network & of course frugality. WiFi range

Remember the discussion material: basic wireless network & WiFi?

There is discussed if the range of WiFi frequency is not more than 150 meters outdoor & 20s indoor meters,

Even if it is able to be more based on that the nir receiver device will be able to connect to WiFi AP.

Because the wireless connection applies both ways, the antenna in the client is so small that it can not send a signal based on 100 meters.

So stop dreaming of having WiFi whose range is more than 150 meters based on using only one WiFi AP. Wide & Remote WiFi Solution

How is the solution so that the range of wifi can be wide or even pause far up to tens of kilometers?

The solution is to use poly WiFi AP so that the range is wide.

And combine outdoor wireless networks using WiFi so that your wifi can be installed in a distant place.

Read the material: How to create a WiFi Network Choose WiFi Radio According to Installation Location

Indoor WiFi radios are not aligned using outdoor made to withstand all kinds of weather.

But unfortunately not all brands create AP WiFi radios for outdoor.

The price of WiFi for indoors is much cheaper, so make sure you choose according to the installation location to save porto. Use CPE for WIFI AP

Functionally it can be and there are no problems, but it needs to be considered for the price &specnya.

For indoor use it is better to use WiFi AP only, because it is much cheaper for the same spec.
