AP105 vs AP115 ( MiMo's )

Hi there,

I am helped a week ago, and now we have the following.

We want to buy ap105's.
Now 1 seller can sell the 115 for almost the same price as the 105.

Another seller tels me that there is not a hugh difference, yeah the 2X2 mino and trhe 3X3 mimo.
They also tell us that then every device needs to be the wifi N standart.

If the device is not a mimo 3 device, the AP wil be downgraded and there is no advantace of the 300Mbps->450Mbps.

 

Of course the sellers want me to buy with that company.

But i want to know what do we need to know to make a good choice.
We know allot , but not enough about mimo 2x2 and mimo 3x3

 

thanxs

Besides reading the links that Fabian gave you that are really useful

If you can affort it go for 115 AP

Think in the future though... that eventually you will have wireless cards with more antennas though... so you will have more speed...

Right now it wont make  a big difference but in the future it can make  a difference...

If i could buy the AP 115 instead AP 105 i would defenetly do.

 

Cheers

Re: AP105 vs AP115 ( MiMo's )

Since you are deciding betwwen AP115 and AP105, try asking for the price of AP225. If your discount is really good then do consider the future of 802.11AC instead - 1.9Gbps.

If you're only interested in .11n, go with the AP115s.  You'll get the maximum benefit when you have 3x3 clients on your WLAN of course.  Plus, they're a lot more attractive than the AP105s when they're below the ceiling grid.

 

If you want to be more future proof, go with teh AP225s as Normal Guy suggested.

Re: AP105 vs AP115 ( MiMo's )

the AP-115 is a superior radio offering. 3x3, more processing power (more throughout with small packets and at short range), better rate versus range than AP-105, superior cellular co existince protection, ...

How much of a jump from the AP115 to the AP125?

 

As much as AP225 could be good, AP125 could be a great price too?

Sooooo they would be *really* cheap then. ;-)

Re: AP105 vs AP115 ( MiMo's )

The 125 is discontinued I believe. Isn't 115 essentially it's replacement?
