Adding new AP Model (Profile Type) into NX5500

Adding new AP Model (Profile Type) into NX5500

Hi all,

One of my customers has been using NX5500 (WiNG5.6) for 2 years, recently due to some AP models are EOL already, we have to introduce some new AP models to their new sites. My question is: Is it the only way to upgrade the firmware, or I cannot make the NX to support newer models? Any chance I can just add/upload the "profile type" (for example, "AP7622") instead? My customer is quite hesitate to perform the firmware upgrade, it's somehow a risk to their existing operations globally...

Thank you~

I'm not an expert on WiNG ... OK I've seen one once  but the release notes don't list that AP model which normaly means that it's not supported.
