Cisco 3602e vers. Cisco 1530 access point - Differences?

Outside of the fact that one is rated for outdoor use, what are the differences between a 3602e and 1530?  Also, is there any benefit in just putting a 3602e in an enclosure over using an outdoor rated 1530?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The primary difference is that the 1500 series APs are used for Mesh deployments.

As well as that, operating temperatures are rated below 0 for the 1500 series.  The 3600 is rated from 0 so can't be used in sub-zero environments.  Similarly the heat limit is higher for the 1500 series.

The 1500 series offers different backhaul options and battery backup solutions too.

The two really are completely different beasts.
