How to upgrade RFS 4010 controller with new generations of AP?

How to upgrade RFS 4010 controller with new generations of AP?

Hi you

I am using AP 7161, 7562 and controller RFS4010 with license for 16 AP. I plan to add new AP 7562, however supplier informed that new generation AP7562 will have wifi 6 and it cannot be added to RFS4010 controller. 

So how should my system be able to upgrade or replace the old APs with newer ones?

I upgraded the Controller for 1.5 years and I reported to my boss that it will add new Aps later on.

WiNG added heterogenous virtual controllers quite a while ago.   The AP460 can be a virtual controller for the following APs: AP460, AP410, AP360, AP310, AP8533, AP8432, AP7662, AP7632, AP7612, AP7562, AP7532, AP7522.

The AP460e also cannot act as a virtual controller.  Even if it could, it would only be able to adopt other AP460e”s.

The AP560i can be a virtual controller, but again it can only adopt other AP560i’s...unless that’s changed with the newer models and/or newer WiNG versions?

Tuan,

7562 IS supported in WiNG-7. The 7161 is NOT.

I plan to buy more Outdoor Access Point 460e because AP 7562 End of sales. Then I use 460e to make a virtual controller while waiting to buy VX9000. Can Ap 7562 and 7161  upgrade to Wing 7?
