It’s been quite some time since this post has been updated. The Wifi market has evolved quite a bit and now most competitors do offer Mesh and even many consumer grade products have properly working Mesh systems with auto fail-over between wired or wireless backhaul. Are there any plans on supporting Mesh Wifi for all your Wifi enabled devices?
As Peplink already has a Wifi-as-WAN feature in some products this can be leveraged to get the same kind of process. But it should be possible to use on just the AP units.
Yes you will lose some performance using Mesh, but not all installations need the full performance of what Wifi can offer now. Especially with the AP-ONE-AX it is really interesting to be able to use a Mesh Wifi system as the throughput from AP to AP should be a lot higher.
In other enterprise/small business brands you can set a ‘Mesh-ID’ with an automatic generated password. The Mesh-ID network is hidden in broadcast. Combining the power of inControl you could make the Mesh system settable per specific tag, so you could have a unique Mesh network per site/customer. It would even help with the deployment of new Wifi AP’s on site, when the customer can do the physical installation themselves.
