The two kits, available with Wireless AC and Wireless N APs, take advantage of 802.11k’s intelligent radio resource management, 802.11r’s fast BSS transitioning, and OKC – a method used to pre-authenticate wireless clients with nearby APs, in order to provide "seamless" roaming capability for Wi-Fi networks.
Each new product comes with a controller that can support up to 128 APs, managing, updating and monitoring their connections, and also support captive portal for hotspot applications and client/SSID bandwidth management.
Trendnet’s AC1200 kit, TEW-821DAP2KAC, comes with two AC1200 access points – including PoE injectors, and a wireless controller with five GbE ports. Listed compatible Trendnet APs include TEW-755AP, TEW-821DAP, and TEW-825DAP models.

Future updates include an AC1750 controller kit, and a firmware enabled Airtime Fairness feature that prioritizes clients based on speed and closer proximity to the APs. Both items will be available later this year.
