Well, the first IEEE 802.11ax first generation ASICs (Wave 1) are available. It´s time to tell what I would like to have when we see "Wave 2" ASICs:
- cAP ac design
- low power version
- PoE In and PoE Out => I would like to daisy chain 3 cAP ax devices. For now I can daisy chain 2 cAP ac devices. Would it be possible to increase the PoE capabilities to get 3 cAP ax devices all together?
- 1x 2.4 GHz: 2x2:2
- 2x 1GbE ports (802.3at PoE In, 802.3af PoE Out), no 2.5GbE
- (1x 5.0 GHz: 2x2:2) -- or -- (2x 5.0 GHz 2x2:2 plus keep the PoE capabilities as cAP ac, i.e. daisy chain 2 cAP ax devices)
Update: Just fooling around with 802.3bt
