Do we have any disadvantage or performance issues when running AP-225 in a high density area using POE 802.3af?
From my understanding 5GHz operate without any issues (Peformance the same regardless of the power)
in 2.4 Ghz (We use only 1 radio 1SS)
USB turn off
2nd Ethernet disabled.
Am i correct?
Correct indeed. If you only have 802.3af capable switches, the AP-215 would be a better fit.
The AP-215 also has 3x3 on both 2.4GHz + 5GHz, only not dual ethernet and a single core CPU.
In short, Due the fact that clients are now prefering the 5Ghz band there is no significant advantage on upgrading the switch to support 802.3at in order to improve only the 2.4 band.
Just a few thoughts
1) I agree that 5 GHz is becoming very widespread
2) However, 2.4 still needs to be treated appropriately
So even if the 2.4 band performance is less than 5 GHz it is still 60 MHz of spectrum that you have access to and, deployed properly, adds value to your end customers.
If PoE is a constraint, then as someone mentioned AP-215 is a great option outside of higher density areas.
Thank you make sense!
