If you want AD wireless... http://www.tp-link.com/en/products/details/AD7200.htmlmb300sd wrote:james04 wrote:
OT: assuming this is not a production environment, I'm curious, what kind of data are the 4x4 ac devices transferring? 4k streams? Even that doesn't require that much traffic.
I'd understand a 10GbE uplink/switch links, but 10GbE APs? heh.
Mostly running virtual machines off my server's disk array from my laptop.
I can't wait for ad wireless...
That talon model is just the C2600 (IPQ8064) with the QCA9500 wireless module, in a weird case that doesn't allow antenna removal.
Would AD wireless make sense on a router that has 1GbE switch ports (as opposed to 10GbE)? I suppose yes if everything you use is wireless and in the same room (60Ghz signal propagation is poor).
I think they rushed that model, if they at least used the newer IPQ8065 SoC paired with 10GbE switch, in a simpler-designed case, that would make a true next-gen AD-class wireless router and might sell like hotcakes for lede/openwrt users who want to go all out. Extreme overkill though, how many need WAN NAT over 1Gbps?
