Hello there. 
 
Access point is the station where you receive and transmit data. It is the point where you can connect to other users within the network. Access point can actually serve multiple of users at a time within the area. They are used in small areas like home and business offices. They support Wireless connection standards. 
 
Management point is the primary contact between the clients and the SMS site server. It must have the Internet Information Services installed and correctly configured. Management point provides specific client configuration details for the Advanced client configuration. It also serves as location to check for advertisements. They receive status information and inventories.
 
Hope it helped you. 
 
Thanks.

An Access Point [AP] or a Wireless Access Point [WAP] is a specially configured node on a Wireless Local Area Network [WLAN] that acts as the central transmitter and receiver of WLAN radio signals. Access points used in home or small business networks are generally small, dedicated hardware devices featuring a built-in network adapter, antenna, and radio transmitter.

Wi-Fi wireless communication standards are supported by access points. Although very small WLANs can function without access points in so-called "ad hoc" or peer-to-peer mode, access points support "infrastructure" mode. This mode bridges WLANs with a wired Ethernet LAN and also scales the network to support more clients.
