Expcting these new WiFi 6 WAC should be manageable standalone and by Insight - I'm curious how Netgear does intend to PoE+ and operate these on 2.5GbE switches? Currently, there are no 2.5G capable PoE+ in the Smart Managed Pro with Insight and Insight Managed Smart Cloud Switches  ... and a 10G cloud manageable switch for a core in a SOHO or small SMB environment is missing, too.

So, here it is the Netgear 2x2:2 WAX610 access point.When will 4x4:4 devices be available? Also, is RADIUS based dynamic VLAN assignemnt supported for those new 802.11ax access points?

Nice discovery, thank you!

f($$$) - it's a question of the pricing at the end of the day. Of course for high density developments 4x4:4 and 4x4:8 would be nice.

Hm, can you show Netgear (I'm not...) the exact use and config example e.g. from Cisco SMB, Cisco business class, Ubiquity, ... please?

 

I understand the complex games we do (in my other life) form large scale wired 802.1x deployments of course (capture all, detect guests, capture long time not updated corporate clients, ...) dynamically changing VLANs (resp. SSIDs on a WLAN) depending on the client status. hat would be a classification done and controlled by the RADIUS, but on wireless that would be done by redirecting to a different SSID which is mapped to a VLAN, isn't it - and not by putting a specific client on the same SSID to a different VLAN?  In SMB environments (that's where Netgear and Insight is focusing to) this is very uncommon, you commonly deploy dedicated SSIDs and don't capture "outdated" client systems for a secure update and re-validation.
