Short answer: no
Longer answer: There are two product lines:  Wing Express and Wing Enterprise or usually referred to as just Wing.  Even though model numbers might be similar, they are not inter-operable.  The Express APs and controllers are designated with an E suffix.
For example: AP7522E which is Wing Express is not inter-operable with AP7522 which is Wing Enterprise, and NX5500E which is Wing Express cannot manage Wing Enterprise APs, such as AP6532.
This confusion is caused by the fact that the products look identical, and from the GUI of Wing Express and Wing can resemble each-other depending on the mode of operation.
Finally, there was never an AP6532 Express version.
