AireOS 8.0 Release – a big update
Since some time our AireOS 8.0 release is available for download on www.cisco.com
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.
- Cisco Aironet Access Point and Scale Features
- Native IPv6
- Security and RADIUS-related Features
- Ease of Management Features
- High Availability Enhancements
- Multicast DNS Enhancements
- Application Visibility and Control Enhancements
- Miscellaneous Features
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.
