Which Indoor Models match the Outdoor Models

Hi!

 

Which Indoor APs are the same or very similar to each other in indoor and outdoor casings, such as the MR12 being the MR62 in a Outdoor case, or the MR16 being the MR66?

 

 

Thanks!

I wouldn't spend too much attention to older models.

WiFi - 5 (802.11ac W2):
MR33 <-> MR74
MR53 <-> MR84
MR36 <-> MR76
MR46 <-> MR86

The 4 models of outdoor APs we sell today are the MR70, 78, 76, 86.

 

The MR70/78 are basically outdoor versions of the entry level indoor MR20/28.

 

The MR76 is basically an outdoor MR36 with various external antenna options.

 

The MR86 would be roughly equivalent to the indoor MR46 again with various external antenna options.

 

The entire AP family datasheet can help with all the info you need

Thanks, but would the last digit of the 7x/8x be the equivalent such as Say a MR74 being a MR34?

Nope. For example MR34 came out in 2013 and was 802.11ac wave 1. MR74 came out 4 years later and was 802.11ac wave 2.

Ok, I'm lost now.

I suggest you to read the datasheet to compare.

Thank you! This is what I was looking for.

Where does the MR72 fit into the Picture? MR32? There really needs to be better documentation for this, instead of just saying "Go check the datasheet"

The datasheet has enough information about the products, you just need to be more patient and persistent.

 

I bet most people in the community learned it by reading the documentation.
