Wireless Networking for Elevators

  • Easy Installation Without Complex Cabling
  • Stable, High-Speed Wireless Connections
  • Minimal Maintenance Costs

For any business in a multi-storey building, ensuring elevators are connected to the network can be critical for applications like video surveillance and digital signage. Traditionally, solutions like high-tension Ethernet cables—running from either the top or bottom of the elevator shafts—are used to accomplish this. But there are some significant drawbacks to this method: Construction has to be completed in a way that allows for these cables; Installation is more intensive; Eventually, the cables will break due to normal wear and tear.

To mitigate these issues, TP-Link Omada offers a solution: a wireless point-to-point link delivering a throughput of up to 867 Mbps. Wireless coverage extends to the entire shaft to connect surveillance cameras or digital signage directly to your network. Record real-time video to an NVR with virtually no hard wiring required—so there are no cables to wear out.

Typical Solution Topology

Wireless Network for Elevator

Just like traditional options, deployment involves an endpoint at the top or bottom of the elevator shaft and another on the top or bottom of the elevator car. For the wireless networking for elevators, one Omada Bridge access point is recommended to be installed on the top of the elevator car as the mobile AP, connecting to the camera or digital signage, and it moves with the elevator car. While another Omada Bridge access point is installed on the top of the elevator shaft as the fixed AP, connecting to the NVR, or the main network.

TP-Link's Omada Bridge access points, one important member of the Omada Software-Defined Networking (SDN) system, provide long-range wireless networking for applications such as wireless elevator networking.

Why Choose TP-Link Omada Wireless Bridge Products?


  • Easy, Flexible Installation — Eliminate the limitations of traditional cable transmission distance and the construction requirements for cable deployment in an elevator shaft.
  • No Complex Cabling — Wireless transmission ensures cable wear and tear is a concern of the past. Physical deployment costs are reduced, due to fewer physical objects being required as well reducing construction costs.
  • Auto-Paring — Automatically establishes a network when a gateway is configured and access points are powered on, avoiding complex setups.
  • Agile LEDs for Quick Deployment — Flexibly adjust your wireless bridges’ position and angle following the LED signal strength displays for optimal reception after auto-paring.
  • Flexible DC and Passive PoE Power Supply — Passive Power over Ethernet support allows for flexible deployment and convenient installation.
  • Reliable Quality is Low Maintenance — The high product quality you get from TP-Link ensures maintaining your wireless elevator system is as easy as possible.


  • Unified network management — Centrally manage access points, switches, and routers—all controlled from a single easy-to-use interface.
  • Multi-Customer and Multi-Site Management — Manage multiple offices without switching controllers under Managed Service Provider (MSP) Mode. Easier to check and manage multiple sites with a more well-organized management structure.
  • Customized user management permissions — Multi-user privilege assignment is available to increase management efficiency and security. Multi-person management, multi-level permissions, and the ability to add admins as needed, enable flexible network operation and maintenance.


  • Wi-Fi Speeds Up to 867 Mbps — Ensures video monitoring and other data intensive functions are smooth and clear.
  • Stable Connections at High-Speeds — Real-world use has proven that Omada wireless bridge products deliver stable transmission and smooth video even when elevators are rapidly running between floors.
  • Long-Range Video Transmission — TP-Link Omada wireless bridge products easily relay HD video from elevator surveillance cameras thanks to extensive features that ensure robust long-range transmission.
  • Weatherproof for Elevator Use — IP65-rated waterproof and dustproof casing fully protects your network data in harsh environments for prolonged exposure to elevator shaft.
