eero in an office with existing router
I have a customer that utilizes eero equipment in his home. He would like to utilize this in his offices. My first question: can eero equipment be used in an office environment? They have an existing network with vpn setup and I would prefer to not reconfigure this, so can I use eero beacons with the existing router? how many beacons can be used this way?
Yes, eero can be used in an office environment, but it would also depend on the physical size of the office and how many devices would be connecting to the network. I don't know for sure, but I would have my doubts that eero would work well with a network with a hundred or more devices on it.
You have to have at least one eero Pro on the network in order to add Beacons. You could get one eero Pro and hardwire it to the network (you'll set it up to run in Bridge Mode), and then from there expand it by adding Beacons. You'd easily be able to add quite a few Beacons, but I'd talk to support if you need more than 8-10. Best performance would be achieved by using eero Pro units (instead of Beacons) and hardwiring them in around the office (typically, office environments will have network ports in various rooms around the building).Reply
