This is typical. Cisco does the same. I can only assume it is because of the harsh conditions. Our failure for extremes outdoor APs compared to Cisco was initial very high. After further inspection I had the extreme partner come back onsite to grounds the APs correctly. Once this was done I probably lose 1 extreme AP a month. We have just over 200 installed at my facility.
The differences in warranties between most indoor APs and outdoor APs is driven by a combination of the harsh conditions where outdoor APs are deployed and the fact (as alluded to in this thread) that there is a high-risk of failure due to improper installations. The APs themselves are very robust and generally have a low failure rates when installed properly - nevertheless they are prone to higher risks due to inclement weather conditions or bad installations therefore they carry a 1-year warranty.Thanks,Will
