    Posted Feb 13, 2023 11:54 AM

    Hi All,

    our office is using Aruba Controller 7005 with running firmware 8.6
    We are expanding our office with 3 new APs.
    What is the maximum firmware that 7005 can support?
    is it able to support access point 8.7 or requires to downgrade of the firmware in order to use?

    Thanks in advance.

    Currently the 7005 Controller can run all the way up to the latest 8.11. With that you can also support all available APs. You can look at the release notes for the version of code your running on there and see what AP models are supported.

    • "latest 8.11. With that you can also support all available APs"

    Available to purchase ?, or to use, ?,

    (the 8.11 limit the whole range of AP-models dramatically!)

    Sorry I should have been more clear on that. As of that post, all of the most recent APs. Always take a look at release notes to check that your managed APs are compatible.

    This WLAN platform matrix is also useful to find which APs and controllers are supported with what software versions.
