        We are implementing a Mesh Network for a small residence with AP50. To protect the APs we are using plastic cover but it would be better for the future some models designed for external use on high post, maybe electrical post. This will add a nice feature to Sophos. Thanks

        Especially for ISPs is really necessary. With captive portal you can use it very well for up-sell, but it requires outdoor AP’s.
        It is also very good for customers having 2 buildings without direct cabel connection (across the street).
        Be aware for special areas , where is this possibility exists workaround:
        As a workaround modify AP10 or AP50 with longer external antennas: the device itself can be mounted indoor – long antennas to external areas can offer the outdoor radiation.

        would this be a workaround: install the AP into a rain/wetness protected plastic case, you can buy these for 10-15 Euros in every wifi supplies shop.
