AirGroup support with Instant Enterprise

Can anyone elaborate on how to configure Instant to be used with Apple services like AirPlay and AirPrint?

 

The press release for Instant Enterprise states "Support for Apple Bonjour services like AirPlay and AirPrint." However, I have reviewed the release notes and user guide for 6.1.3.4-3.1.0.0 and cannot find anywhere that details what has been included to provide optimal support for these services.

 

We have several customers who want to use AppleTV's  and AirPrint enabled printers with iPads on their campus network and have been inquiring about AirGroup. Now that the newest version of the solution guide on Airplay and AirPrint on Campus Networks has been published it references the ability of Instant to support these services. 

 

I am assuming that in order to support these services Instant will leverage the firewall capabilities to control traffic to and from devices and users in roles to access these services. However, I was hoping there would be some clarification somewhere on how to leverage these new capabilities. 

 

Thanks

Aruba Instant Enterprise

Per http://www.arubanetworks.com/news-releases/aruba-delivers-controller-less-wlan/, how do I get ahold of this?  I’m particular interested in the AirPrint support, since this appears to be missing in Instant 6.1.3.1 and there’s no mention of it in the Instant 6.1.3.4 release notes.

 

Thanks.

mmcnamee and DanielM, 

 

Airgroup is not currently available in Aruba Instant version 6.1.3.4_3.1.0.0. But I would suggest that you talk to your local SE for more information and also keep an eye out on the forums for any announcement regarding Airgroup. 

 

Thanks,

Marketing proclaiming new features now available before they actually are? It would never happen... :)
