  • 1.  Wi-Fi 6E Access Point?

    Posted 08-17-2021 09:59 AM
    What are the plans for a Wi-Fi 6E access point?  Either a 6E version of the AP22 or a new model?

    I already have one device that supports 6E and will have several more over the next few months.

    Thanks.

    Aruba introduced one of the first Enterprise grade 6E APs few months back (AP635):
    https://www.arubanetworks.com/en-in/products/wireless/access-points/indoor-access-points/630-series/

    The primary use case is for crowded venues/high density installations in Enterprise.

    What use cases do you see for 6E in Small Business environments?

    There's always a need for clear spectrum in SMB, residential and Enterprise. 

    I too would hope that Aruba IO will produce a 6e AP or two in the not so distant future.

    My interest in WiFi 6E Instant On access points is this:  I will need some additional APs in the next few months and it seems silly to not get 6E APs.  I already have one device that supports 6E and I will have a few more in the next few months.  This is for use in my two homes.

    I would think the needs in the SMB sector would be the same as every other sector, faster speeds, wider channels, cleaner or clearer RF spectrum.  Who wouldn't want a tri band AP?  I'm sure they'll be a cost bump up to add a 3rd radio but it would be worth it.  Granted most jobs won't need the extra speed and the concurrent throughput but we all want more, more, more! ;)   Besides its the future and everyone else has models available now so if you want to compete you have to have them too.
