- Autonomous APs do not support PoE.
- Controller-based APs are known as lightweight APs and require an initial configuration to operate.
- Autonomous APs incorporate the functions of a router, switch, and AP into one device.
- Controller-based APs can be automatically configured and managed by a WLAN controller.
