We are considering a complete migration from Ubiquiti to ePMP/Elevate. I currently install 3 or 4 (or more) APs on a tower providing primary coverage for a service area. I install an omni on top of a tower and power it off until an AP goes down, then I power on the AP and configure the omni with SSID of down AP. Subscribers come back up (albeit not as great as while on sector, but they're up nonetheless). Once down AP issue is resolved, I reverse the steps to get back into primary mode.
I do not want to have to pay double for licensing the omni and there's not a means to use a pooled license resource yet. Is it possible to configure an Elevate sub to connect primarily to an ePMP2000 AP with Elevate licenses, but failover (possibly with 'Standard WiFi Mode') to an ePMP200 AP without Elevate licenses? I DO NOT WANT TO HAVE TO MAKE A TRUCK ROLL TO EACH SUB.
I use a unique SSID for each sector and would have the omni powered off until an AP died, then I would turn it on and apply that SSID to the omni (but the omni would be in 'Standard WiFi Mode').
