EoL APs and APs Running Unsupported Firmware Behavior

Understanding how the SZ300/vSZ-H controllers handle APs that have reached End-of-Life (EoL) status and AP running unsupported firmware can help you design an upgrade plan that will minimize impact on wireless users in your organization.

Note: SZ300/vSZ-H devices are referred to as controllers in this section.

APs Running Unsupported Firmware Releases

  • APs running AP firmware releases that are unsupported by the controller release can still connect to the controller.

  • Once connected to the controller and assigned to a zone, the AP will be upgraded to the AP firmware assigned to the zone to which it belongs.
