</div>You<br>

That is the unit that compares with the EAP600.  Dual-Band.  Engenius<br>
is cheaper per unit in most cases.<br>

</div>It also depends on your feature set whether and/or how long the APs<br>
can run without the controller.  Using a captive portal?  Guess where<br>
that resides....  Don't get me wrong, I like the UniFi stuff, but you<br>
need to be aware of its limitations.<br>
