We are working on designing a greenfield Network design and deployment for out Super Specialty Hospital in India (bangalore). We are looking at MR44 vs MR46, although the specs say they are very similar. I wanted to hear from the experts here if there is any difference in terms of the coverage area that these APs have?
Like in a 20ft x 20ft area with few walls in the middle, would MR46 work or MR44. or would the coverage be the same.
consider the density is the same (Med density) I am more concerned on the coverage as it will affect the number of APs and ports on the access stack.
If you look closely through the spec sheets of both the MR46 and MR44 you appear to get a little more oomph from the MR46's. Also pay attention to the signal coverage patterns within the data sheets, the coverage looks greater for the MR46's also:
Thank you so much for sharing the links on the data sheet!
Yes you are right on the MR44's push that we receive from the sales team based on the availability. However as this is part of an NGO pricing is very important for us here! That is one more reason to push on the MR44's if that solves our purpose compared to MR46.
My main concern was would MR44 cover same area as MR46 ?
