    Hi there, 

    I am looking for a 802.11mc enabled access point. We can experiment  with Android-P and enabled phones, but I struggle to find an access point to test it with. Any ideas, please?

    Take a look at this from compulab:

     

    https://fit-iot.com/web/product/indoor-positioning-evaluation-kit/

     

    This evaluation kit has both Responders (access point) and mobile device - but they can quote for individual items.

     

    Hopefully Aruba access points will support 802.11mc soon...

    With 8.6.x AP-51x and AP-50x are 802.11mc capable. More to come...

    ArubaOS 8.6 documentation shows how to enable FTM responder mode in current hardware.

     

    https://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/ArubaOS_86_Web_Help/Content/arubaos-solutions/whats_new.htm

     

    Only 510 series with ArubaOS 8.6 are listed, although other 5xx access points have been mentioned to me.

     

    I think ArubaOS 8.6 was released on 17th November - that's the date of the published release notes.

    802.11az is not approved by the ieee, as of yet:  http://grouper.ieee.org/groups/802/11/Reports/802.11_Timelines.htm#tgaz

    Hi,
    I could not find any documentation regarding the command to enable this feature on the CLI of the IAP. 
    Is this published anywhere?
    As per this link the 802.11mc support has been removed. Its not clear if its supported or not.

    Thx

    Really? I don't see it on Aruba's  Wireless Update, Fall 2019

    https://community.arubanetworks.com/aruba/attachments/aruba/unified-wired-wireless-access/94893

     

    Can I safely add this information to the list on my web page

    Which Wifi access points support the IEEE 802.11-2016 FTM RTT protocol?)

    https://people.csail.mit.edu/bkph/ftmrtt_aps

     

    (I have not seen any APs "in the wild" with Aruba OUI that respond, so far)
