Instant APs

Hi guys,

 

Instant APs can be converted to regular APs and those be converted to Instant APs back again. However, regular APs can't be converted to Instant APs. Then why do regular APs exist? Are they cheaper?

 

Regards,

Julián

Re: Instant APs

They're the same price I believe. If you know you do not need Instant APs it's easier to just buy non-Instant especially if you have a large number of APs. There's extra work to convert Instant APs to "regular" AP and with that comes the potential for issues to occur.

Cheers
James

Re: Instant APs

Hi James,

 

Is that the only reason? Is because there is extra work to do? But how much time can take converting Instant AP to regular AP? I thought it takes little time and it is easy.

Re: Instant APs

Moving forward with new Aruba AP you will see a unified AP (Instant/Campus AP) no more separate SKUs / Hardware

Which will make ordering a bit easier
