Having ZoneDirector management of your APs will allow for more seamless roaming, and gives you centralized monitoring capabilities. It has diagnostics
to help troubleshoot AP and client connectivity that individual standalone mode
APs cannot (easily).
From a ZoneDirector WebUI, you can easily access current AP RF conditions and
client statistics, from all 5 APs, see application usage (in latest firmware) and can
even use Mesh to maintain AP connectivity if an Ethernet cable or switch port
failed, which we cannot do with standalone mode APs.
