The EAP610-Outdoor has been shipped, which might take a period of time before its arrival in the stores for sale.

  @Fae  

I just checked the TP-Link store on Amazon.  No hint of them being available.   Same for Newegg.  A Google search shows none available anywhere. One web site even says it is discontinued by the manufacturer.

I recently received an email from Alex Varelas at TP-Link who says they won't actually be available until June of this year.

Can you possibly point me in the direction of a USA supplier that actually has some in inventory ?

This thread is mainly aimed to introduce the features of the new product. I'm afraid that I don't have much detailed sales information for you.

 

Different region may have different sales strategy, you may contact the local agent for the actual arrival and sales status of EAP610-Outdoor.

  @rickk1000 a month has passed and I am still seeing none of these for sale anywhere in the world.

 

Has anyone found a source with these in stock yet ?

 

I am reaching a deadline for starting a deployment in a 30 acre facility .  I hate to change course and switch to UI at this point but these things were first press released 15 months ago and still they don't seem to exist .

  @Rickk10000 According to this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ci_VOQ_TFXs&t=3035s which is Dutch, so I assume this might be European schedule, it says Q2, so sometime after April.

  @bst00  Being WFi 6... in theory the pattern would be dynamic ... at least in the horizontal plane
