EAP225-Outdoor missing DFS channels
We purchased serveral of the EAP225-Outdoor units to evaluate as possible upgrades to UniFi Mesh deployment. The network is high densidy with about 50 access points and over 1000 clients.
The units perform well in testing and the Omada controller works fairly well, not as feature rich as the other brand controller but good enough. The units also connect directly to the UniFi antennas and mounts, which is a huge bonus! The problem is, even with the latest controller software and firmware the units are still missing DFS channels. In our environment there is just not enough frequency on the non-DFS channels alone to provide good service. We are now investigating the Unifi wave2 and Engenious wave2 products as possible alternatives because of this deficit in the EAP225.
Are there plans to introduce DFS to this product and if so what is the timeline? We have been testing this model for over a year and this is the primary holdback to purchasing any new TP-Link products.
