Does the AP-135 better option than AP-225 when comparing only the 2.4Ghz band? Does ap-135 provide more throughput than the AP-225 when using poe af? I was reading that the AP-225 will only have 1 radio and 1 SS compraed to the AP-135 3x3:3SS.
When you power up AP-225 from 802.3af there is no sufficient power to run all three streams for 'n' radio. In my opinion, at 2.4GHz there would be no significant difference between APs. The real performance in 2.4G band would be similar at any AP. BTW, there is very limited number of 3x3:3 adapters (2.4 and dual band) on the market ;)
I think we lose data rates as we have less spatial streams, however from what i gathered not enough to see an impact on performance in your network.
From my inderstanding that the AP225 on the 2.4GHz can go up to 600mbps but that is subjected to the adapter in use. If you are using Broadcom that is when you can achieve that.Which bring to this extra setting that will suit only AP225 under G radio - TurboQAM rates enable
Marqs is right on the 2.4ghz side. On the 5ghz band, clients that can leverage 802.11AC extensions do not need to run 3 spatial streams to benefit performance-wise on the AP225: http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Unified-Wired-Wireless-Access/TUTORIAL-ArubaOS-6-3-and-Above-802-11ac-Enable-VHT-even-if-you/m-p/142739/highlight/true#M30416
In the end, the future of wireless is not in 2.4ghz, though.
