IAP-225 with 802.3af

Hi all,

 

Just seeking some clarification on the radio configuration on the IAP-225 when using standard 802.3af.

 

I understand there was an Update for ArubaOS (6.3.1.0) to change the power management behaviour so that the 802.11ac radio runs at full capacity.

 

I haven't found a similar reference in the InstantOS release notes. Can anybody confirm if the same enhancement was made to the IAP-225 or is this only restricted to devices running ArubaOS?

 

Thanks

Scott

The IAP-224/225 was first supported on Instant 6.3.1.1-4.0.0.  This version (like its ArubaOS 6.3.1.x counterpart) supports PoE efficiency mode on 802.3af power; but still runs 802.11ac at full capacity on 5GHz.  You are probably not finding anything in the Release Notes for Instant, as it was never supported in 2x3:2 spatial stream mode.

 

This is an example of the output from an IAP-225 running on 802.3af power source.  This was running 6.3.1.0-4.0.0.0; the first Instant OS to support IAP-224/225s.
