    Hello,

    Wondering of anyone is successfully using AP-315s on AOS8 and, if so, which version? Also, are AP-315s slated for use with AOS10?

    Thanks!

    Mike

    We're running a few 315s successfully (both CAPs and RAPs) in 8.7.1.1

    (Not sure about the AOS10 question)

    Yes, the 310 Series will be (is) supported in AOS10 as well.

    One additional note that at this moment;
    • Aruba 8.5.x.x is the latest conservative release. 
    • Aruba 8.6.x.x and 8.7.x.x are standard releases.
    Personaly i would recomend the latest 8.5.0.11 release for best reliability util there is a requirement for later on features in the newer releases.

    Your welcome Mike!

    Both the AP-3xx series and Ap-5xx series are current models, there is no end-of-sales or end-of-support date announced. The only different is that the AP-3xx series is an Wi-Fi 5 (or 802.11ac wave2) and the AP-5xx series are the Wi-Fi 6 (or 802.11ax) standard.

    List price for AP-3xx series and equal AP-5xx series are close together, so for greenfield i would use the AP-5xx series. The most benefits from Wi-Fi 6 are reached when all clients us the new standard and that need some time.

    Your current AP-315 AP's are still awesome and are used by a lot of customers.
