802.11e on 802.11ac?

Does anyone know if W-Fi multimedia (802.11e QoS) is supported for clients that connect on 802.11ac?

 

Aruba documentation does not state support for AC clients.

It is part of the standard...

Thanks CJoseph.

 

Support for AC is conspicuiously missing from the AOS documentation.

At the same time, they do not explicity state lack support for AC so perhaps I am reading too much into it.

 

I plan to enable it, then watch the AC clients to see if they are affected. Not exactly sure how I will watch that but where there's a will there's a way.

802.11ac depends on the PHY of the physical AP, so the data sheet of the AP would indicate support, rather than the AOS manual.

Also, 802.11ac is also called VHT, which is referenced in the AOS manual.
