    Hi,

    Where can find "Zigbee 802.15.4 radio" supported APs list or in AP matrix?

    The only APs with integrated 802.15.4 radio are the recently launched AP-303P (303 Series Campus Access Points) and the future 11ax AP platforms.

    In order to use Zigbee on existing APs, you'll need a USB dongle (and software support).

    Is there any solutions in Aruba for that USB dongle and Software or should be a 3rd party product?

    Nothing available now, but that may change in the coming months. Whether using an Aruba or third-party dongle, the solution will come from Aruba.

    At Atmosphere '19 last week, there was a booth demonstrating an Aruba AP with a zigbee USB stick - I wasn't able to spend enough time at the booth due to my training schedule, but it appeared to work. 

    Now I need to know which USB dongles work and which Zigbee products are compatible.

    Was it the shelf tags or was it the door lock system? Right now, to the best of my knowledge, support for any Zigbee solutions are solution-specific, and not more broad to support any Zigbee system right now. AFAIK we have engineering projects for door locks from one vendor (Assa Abloy) and one engineering project for shelf tags (can't remember the vendor).

    It was the door lock system.

    We have lighting control on a parallel network with 4G uplink and the zigbee mesh is failing (age and cheap hardware with a deunct vendor) so we're looking to bring it over.

    Sounds like I'll be holding my breath a while longer.

    Escalate up through your Aruba rep, you never know ☺ But I know we’re exploring the zigbee ecosystem for options, but it requires a desire from the other side’s vendor ☺
