hAP-aC2 with SFP port

Mon Oct 07, 2019 10:11 pm

It would be extremly nice to have hAP-AC2 with SFP port.
Something like Hex and HexS but with HW VLAN support...

What do you think @Forum and @MikroTik

Why would a home/office Access point/router have an SFP port ?
There are many other models with SFP ports...

And why not? Original hAP AC has it :)

So, it should have an SFP because another model does?
Also hap ac with hap ac 2 are completelly different, the only common they got is their name... hap ac has different CPU, different architecture, different wireless chips and different prices.. you can't compare...

100% agree, a HAP AC2 with SFP, and a hap ac lite with SFP.
The HAP AC is a tad too expensive.

We would buy 100s of them.

You asked "Why would a home/office Access point/router have an SFP port ?" like it's some kind of nonsense never seen before.
While it's really a nice feature to have for some users.
Home users as well.

You are right, hAP AC is a very different device, and one of the major differences is price.
So just as we can chose between hEX and hEX-S for an inexpensive but rather powerful router, it would be nice if we could choose between hAP ac2 and some hAP-S ac as an inexpensive all-in-one solution.

The point was:
1. HEX price 45 EUR + VAT
2. HEXS price 55 EUR + VAT
3. hAP-AC2 price 55 EUR + VAT
4. And I see here hAP-AC2+SFP for 65 EUR + VAT (my estimate...no such product)

Why... I have many custumers where we come to them with Optics and they want just one single affordable device with WiFi..

But I am unsure if IPQ-4018 supports SFP... I would gladly loose one RJ45 port for SFP...
Some of you would also use it in GPON setups..

And I see I am not the only one with such request..
Here's to hoping :)

If you want an sfp port then buy a mikrotik model with an SFP port! So many!!!
If i wanted my car to have a racing exhaust, would i tell the factory to produce it the way i want? :lol:

I already have one.

And that's not the point.
Current mikrotik product line is missing a particular item that was present in the previous generation product line: affordable compact all-in-one device with sfp port.
Despite your jokes that's a demanded product.
Because in today's product line it's either hEX-S + AP or RB4011.
Both options are a compromise.

There is definitely a need for a hap ac lite or hap ac2 with SFP. An all in one device for active networks that is cheaper than the HAP AC.

When I read first time the "hap ac2" I thought ut will be the successor of the "hap ac", with more power. But not 😢
