I've got 7 AP230's and need 4 or 5 more AP's. I'd be interested to hear anyone's advice as to whether I should add additional AP230's or go with the newer AP130.
The AP230s are 3x3:3 and have two gigabit ethernet ports, one of which one is PoE-capable.
The AP130s are 2x2:2, have a single gigabit ethernet port and can only be powered by PoE.
It has a smaller form factor too. Consider it the little brother of the AP230.
If you can afford it, for consistency, I would be minded to go with more AP230s as you have 7 already.
Thanks - that decides the issue. AP230's it is!
I appreciate the information.
Thanks to both Nick and Matt - I just ordered the 230's!
And I don't think we are going to see new devices which have 3x3. I do think we will see new client devices such as phones and tablets which will be MU-MIMO with wave 2 chip sets in the client, and new access points that support 4X4 will at least be cable to do 4x1 (or is it 1x4) and make use of those extra streams. I'd have saved my money now - and bought the odd wave 2 access point later.
