Minimum Supported

"The AP-12x a/b/g/n APs require ArubaOS (or later). If you are running an earlier version of ArubaOS, upgrade before installing the APs" No software key is required for the AP124.

Re: min OS version to support n radios

Just for some clarification as to the license, we were selling an 802.11a/b/g only version of the 120 series, and to get the 802.11n speeds unlocked on those particular APs you did need to purchase a license. These APs had a separate SKU from the standard 120 series APs.

This was done early on in 802.11n adoption cycle when some organizations were still hesitant to go to 802.11n due to the lack of formal standardization, and one vendor's FUD about hardware changes being required in the future. If you purchase the 120 or 105 series today you don't need to worry about this license as Colin mentioned.
