Have a client with this controller - but can't find info relating to the compatibility between the 37xx, 38xx AP's compatibility ?

Will the current gen APs work on the WM3700 ?  Are there limitations, minimum FW versions ?

thanks !

Hi.

There are two wireless solutions from Extreme now on the market.

One is originaly Chantry -> Siemens -> Enterasys -> Extreme (often called IdentiFi). There was also period of time when Extreme was getting it from Siemens directly.

One is originaly Motorola -> Extreme

You can not manage APs from one by controller from other.

The AP37xx, AP38xx and AP39xx are IdentiFi => will not be managec by Motorola controller.

Is your controller originaly Motorola or Siemens?

Yes there are minimum versions = it is documented in release notes and manuals.

It is not the same for each AP from the same family = the 3801 and 3805 and 3825 do have different minimum versions

Hi Pala, 

It is an Extreme WM3700 version 5.5.5.0-018R

They are currently using these APs : ap4600 - AP4610-ROW    

But, these are EOS - so we can't supply new APs to them.  They need to add/replace APs - I am just trying to find what APs will work ?

Unfortunately you can not manage by WM3700 any of: AP37xx, AP38xx, AP39xx

Please contact local Extreme team to find suitable solution.
