AireOS 8.0 Release – a big update

Wednesday, 12 November 2014

Since some time our AireOS 8.0 release is available for download on

This release adds many, many new features, which are best explained in the Release-Notes.
The following is just the list of categories of new content – each containing several individual enhancements.

I would like to encourage you to have a look into this sections of the Release-Notes.
I’m convinced that you will also find features, which are interesting for your organization.


One interesting aspect and a question we always get is:
What SW-Version should I use right now?

The Release-Notes mention this as well, but I would like to highlight another source.
There is a specific document talking about AireOS Software Release Recommendations:
Guidelines for Cisco Wireless Software Release Migration

In a nutshell, if you want to remain on a MD-certified release,
then for the moment this is still the AireOS 7.4 Release.
AireOS 8.0 is currently expected to reach MD-Status during the first half year of 2015.
