Question about updating/upgrading with AP-125

Jump to Best Answer
  • 1.  Question about updating/upgrading with AP-125

    Posted May 07, 2015 01:22 PM

    We are currently running 6.3.1.2. We are wondering is it best to stay with the 6.3 series of code which is now up to 6.3.1.16. Or should I upgrade to 6.4 series of code which is up to 6.4.2.6? I read in the release notes of 6.4.2.6 that 6.4 code series will be the last one supported on the AP-125. Does anyone have a chart or something on the differences between 6.3 and 6.4?

    Thank you in advanced for your help.

    The two major features in 6.4 from a client standpoint are AppRF 2.0 and DLNA support in AirGroup.

     

    AppRF 2.0 adds deep packet inspection to allow you to block, throttle and prioritize applications on 7 series controllers.

     

    DLNA AirGroup support allows standards-based L2 discovery to work across subnets (SSDP/DLNA). This will allow support things like Chromecast, Roku, standards-based printer discovery etc.
