Thanks for the reply.
Do you know what is the difference between the RAP-2WG-US and RAP-5WN.
In the office, we use the Aruba AP-105 which is very robust, scalable, and
has a console interface, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

We are trying now to draft a standard for teleworkers as well, and want to check
if RAP-2WG-US is easy to troubleshoot, and scalable as the AP-105.

Can you please advise, Thanks again!

Howdy Mike,

There are a few differences between the RAP-2 and the RAP-5, most notably the additional ethernet ports on the RAP-5 (5 enet ports vs 2 on the RAP-2). The RAP-5 also has a single, dual-band radio, so it can be configured to operate in either 2.4GHz or 5GHz.

The RAP-2 is the most commonly used, but of course other devices, including the AP-105, can be used depending on your unique requirements.
