Can AP7522 works with motorola WS2000 and AP300?

  • 1.  Can AP7522 works with motorola WS2000 and AP300?

    Posted 10-30-2018 20:36
    Dear Community,

    I would like to expand an old, but reliably operate deployment (2 WS2000 Wifi controller and 6 AP300 and the clients are Zebra BarCodeScanners.).
    Can I expand his working system with AP7522? The roaming is very important in this case.
    Or Should I deploy a new installation with a new controller and new APs?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello Attila,
    The WS2000 has been EOSL for quite some time and prior to the AP75xx series. The answer is no, the WS2000 cannot adopt the AP7522. Strongly advise replacing the WS2000 with a new model wireless controller (e.g. RFS4000, NX5500, NX7510) that can adopt the newer AP models, including the AP7522, and retire the EOSL AP300s.

    Otherwise, you can use Virtual Controller (VC) feature with the AP7522 and adopt up to 64 AP7522/AP7532/AP7562) on the VC AP7522 (no different model number, just a feature on the AP).

    Hello Attila Horvath,
    This is an unsupported scenario but it doesn´t mean it couldn´t work. For Zebra Mobile Computers at least.
    It would be better to renew all the Access points to WiNG 5 but you can test if you want mixing WS2000/AP300 with AP7522.
    The customer need to know that there is a chance this deployment doesn´t work and he Will need to Deploy a new installation with new APs.

    Hi, For the roaming I don’t see any issue if they are on the same subnet. Can you please send more info? What zebra devices are we talking about? What is the application that the zebra are using? Telnet? Browser?

    Hi Carlos,

    Thank you for your answer!
    It seems the mixed environmet has been rejected. Unfortunatly, we cannot test the mixed APs with the old controller.
    At the moment I have only this info, that I shared.

    Hello Pablo,

    Thank you for your quick answer!
    Unfortunately, we could not test the mixed environmet, hence I will suggest that they use AP7522 as a VC.

    Best Regards,

    Attila,

    this is great choice - do avoid testing of unsupported whenever you cannot afford a failure!

    One note to the end:

    AP75x2 is completely different piece of RF hardware compared to AP300.
    Do pay attention to its installation (placement) and a site survey to confirm results.
    Never replace different generations / platforms of APs 1-for-1
