I was reading through the Instant 8.4 guide and noticed this...
Wi-Fi Uplink Instant supports the use of Wi-Fi as uplink to provide internet backhaul for the Instant network. The Wi-Fi uplink is supported on all the Instant AP models, except for the 802.11ac. ... To connect an Instant AP to an Instant-based WLAN using Wi-Fi uplink, the controller must run Instant 220.127.116.11 or later for 11n platforms and Instant 18.104.22.168 for 11ac platforms.
Is Wi-Fi uplink planned to be reintroduced in 8.5? I can think of a few use cases, specifically where mesh doesn't fit well but Wi-Fi uplink could work.
Solved! Go to Solution.
