Miercom recently published a third party evaluation between the AP 3702i and the AP-225. The report consists of a diverse range of test cases meant to gauge real-world performance of the access points. The tests include; multi-client performance, single client rate vs. range, performance in the presence of interference, and performance on PoE power.
Here are the highlights:
- The 3700 has 6 times the performance of Aruba in a High Density Environment with 60 clients.
- When using 802.3af PoE, the 3700 did not see a drop in throughput whereas the Aruba 225 AP throughput dropped by 63%.
- Demonstrating the power of HDX, when interference is introduced into the network, the 3700 has 87.7% better throughput than the Aruba AP.
