Recent IAP Firmware Releases

 

This post outlines high level information about recent IAP firmware releases.  Hopefully it will aid you in determining what version you should be running and help delineate the differences between versions. 

 

Info about new versions of IAP SW will be added to this post as they are released.  Subscribe to this post to be alerted when new versions of code are released. 

 

Please contact Aruba Support before upgrading if you have any questions.  A valid support account is needed to access the firmware files and release notes.  The release notes are the definitive source of information about a release and should always be read before upgrading.

 

Currently, IAP images are posted to the TAC site, under SW Downloads first followed by posting to the Cloud based upgrade server 4 - 6 weeks later.  Dell branded IAPs typically see the SW upgrade 4 - 6 weeks after the Aruba image is released.
