Hello,
what is the difference between these two 6GHz access points?
i don´t see any difference in the tec specs.

    Thanks for the quick reply.
    That explains that various online shops listed both APs with the same tec specs. The different antenna configuration is a bit of specific.

    The difference between NWA220AX-6E vs WAX620D-6E is antenna type.

    NWA220AX-6E with 4x4 + 2x2 MIMO embedded antenna. Ceiling-mount patterns for NWA220AX-6E.

    WAX620D-6E with 4x4 + 2x2 dual-optimized antenna. Ceiling-mount and Wall-mount patterns for WAX620D-6E.

                                          

                               Ceiling-mount                                                             Wall-mount


    In case using WAX620D-6E, you can choose Antenna setting as Ceiling or Wall.

    On Nebula, go to Access point > Configure >Radio setting > Click AP
    On Standalone, go to Maintenance > Antenna > Antenna Switch

    Hi @tremor,

    In addition, there are differences between Operating mode and Conducted typical transmit output power.


    1. Operating mode:

    NWA220AX-6E: Nebula Cloud managed/ standalone 

    WAX620D-6E: Nebula Cloud managed/controller-managed/standalone

     

    2. At 5GHz, the output power of WAX620D-6E is bigger than NWA220AX-6E 3dBm.


    To get the full spec, please refer to these datasheets:

    NWA220AX-6E datasheet

    WAX620D-6E datasheet
