I’m looking at buying a NX5500 Wireless Controller. Could you explain to me what the license packs are for and if I need to purchase one? We currently have AP7632s throughout the building running on a virtual controller so I’m unsure if I would need to buy a license pack for the physical controller. I’d rather purchase the licenses with the controller instead of finding out later that I needed to buy them.
What is the newest version of the WiNG 5.9 software that can be put on the Motorola AP6521? Would I be able to control both the 7632s and the 6521s with the NX5500 controller? The 7632’s have version 184.108.40.206-007R, and the 6521s have version 220.127.116.11-003R currently. The older APs will eventually get upgraded but it would be nice to know for sure if I could control them both in the meantime with the NX5500.

When you purchase a physical controller, you’ll need licenses for AP adoption, hence the license packs.
In terms of adoption, the latest firmware supported on the AP6521 APs is 18.104.22.168 and both the NX5500 and AP7632 AP are also supported on said firmware; however, it is NOT advisable to downgrade the AP7632 beyond 22.214.171.124 as many enhancements and fixes have been introduced since then. Actually it’s highly recommended you upgrade the AP7632 APs to the latest 5.9.x.x (126.96.36.199) firmware for optimal performance.
I hope this helps,
