    There do not seem to be seperate SKU/Parts for the outdoor access point models for Instant vs. Controller/Campus based.  But their spec sheets and the website say they can be run as Instants as well as controller-based.

     

    Do you just buy the AP version of the outdoor units and flash them with the Instant firmware?   I know that the normal indoor APs are typically locked to prevent that sort of conversion, so I am a little confused on how it works with the outdoor family.

     

    Any advice?  Thank you!

    Hi luckyyvt,

     

    These APs as well as other such as the 360 outdoor or 500 indoor series, to name a few are sold as Unified APs or UAPs (single SKU), and the can work as CAPs and IAPs. In the future there will only be UAPs. I also were surprised with the same the first time I configured a 365 outdoor AP. Here you have some documentation:

    The AP37x are Unified APs, so the AP will do both modes. There is no longer Instant or Campus versions.
