What if my TP-Link Outdoor Access Points​ can see the SSID of UBNT access point but fail to connect?
UBNT AirOS has a feature called AirMAX, which is a proprietary protocol only compatible with Ubiquiti devices.

AirMAX is enabled by default in AP mode. So when you set up a UBNT access point, remember to disable the AirMAX function on it. Once AirMAX is disabled, TL-LINK Outdoor Access Points as well as other Wi-Fi devices can cooperate with the UBNT access point. Please also note that the throughput will decrease if AirMAX is disabled.
