Hi

The 8260 states it is a Enterprise Class Wireless Card, but the 8265 states it's a Business Class Card.

What is the difference?

Hello, calb. Thank you for contacting the Intel Community.

 

 

The Intel® Dual Band Wireless AC 8260 and 8265 adapters are Business Class Cards. You can check this in the product brief of these two products. Please find them below:

 

 

Furthermore, we do not offer Enterprise Class adapters; there are only Business Class and End User.

 

 

I hope this helps.

Hi

Thanks for your reply.

In the past we've only purchased Enterprise Class Wireless Cards for mobile devices Intel Centrino Advanced N-6205.

For a very large campus, several floors and buildings that rely on wireless, we would use devices with a cheap end user home card as not reliable.

So always gone for Enterprise Calls cards for a Enterprise WLAN, so does Business Class adapters are equivalent to enterprise card?

Hello, calb.

 

 

Can you please share with us a link or image where the Centrino® adapter is offered as an Enterprise Class Card?

 

 

As mentioned above, we only offer Business Class Adapters.
