    Good morning!

    We have a 305 Instance cluster with 10 305 access points. We are adding 4 more access points, but 305s are end of sale so we are buying 505 instead. I have 2 questions:
    1- Can 505 and 305 access point co-exist in the same cluster (305 Instance) or would we experience any problems? Assuming that we are keeping them in separate floors.
    2- If yes, Do we need to switch the instance controller so that it's one of the 505 (ie a 505 cluster) instead of the 305 or can we just keep the 305 controller and install the 4 new 505 APs?

    Thank You so much for your help!
