7782 vs 7762

I am looking at the 7762 and 7782 units for an outdoor deployment of a single unit at our farm market. I want the range and weather resistance and capacity to mesh on 5 GHz to a couple 7363's, but don't need the high-density client features of the 7782.

Are there any other major differences between these two units besides the high density client handling of the 7782?

Hello Lonnie,

Keeping in mind your requirements then i would suggest go for Zf7762 and really interested in major difference then take a look at below PDF. it is self descriptive however steering MORE on the technical side.

Thanks. It doesn't show the 7762, but I think the 7762 is EOL. The 7782 being described as "carrier class" tells me it's overkill for my project.

Info on 7762 is there. First column on the left on page 2.

Yes, 7782 would be a overkill so 7762 is good to go since other outdoor AP is ZF2741 which is EOL too and a single band and mesh won't work so among the options 7762 fits the best or you can put a indoor dual band AP in a enclosure as another option

The first doc you linked to does not list the 7762. The 2nd doc does, and confirms this thread so far.
Thanks.

Only APs with like radios can mesh together.

Single-band (2.4G) only APs mesh on 2.4G, shared with clients. Dual-band APs mesh on 5G, and accept 5G clients, leaving 2.4G all for clients.

But... like radios also means b/g versus b/g/n.

Old 2925/2942/2741 are single-band 802.11b/g only, and can mesh together on 2.4G.

Newer 7942/7343 were single-band 802.11b/g/n, and can mesh together on 2.4G.

Dual-band APs with n on both bands, include 7962/7762/7363/7982/7782, and these APs can mesh together on 5G backhaul for both band clients.

What makes 7782 greater than 7762 is radio antennas and streams.

ZF7982 is 3x3:3, and ZF7962 is 3x3:2 spatial streams.

--

You have 7363 model APs with 2x2:2 antennas and spatial streams.

ZF7762 will be the correct choice as ZF7982 will offer no better performance.

Please check out the new Ruckus outdoor 802.11ac AP , the R300. It just might be what you are looking for.

The T300 outdoor 802.11ac model AP, will be supported by ZoneFlex 9.9 release firmware. R300 (indoor 802.11n) model AP is supported from ZoneFlex 9.7, and
the R700 (indoor 802.11ac) model AP is supported in ZoneFlex 9.8 (current GA),
and later.
