Earlier this month Cisco released a new autonomous IOS for the 2700 and 3700 access-points. If I look at the release logs, they reference to a new 1700I access-point:
Support for Cisco Aironet 1700 Series access point
- This access point is built on 3x3:2(2.4GHz), 3x3:2(5GHz) MIMO technology, and comes with integrated antennas, and supports 802.11a,b,g,n,ac. This access point has both primary and secondary gigabit Ethernet ports. The primary port is gigabit Ethernet 0 and is the backhaul port. The primary port can be set as trunk port. The secondary port is gigabit Ethernet 1, and is the access port. You can configure the secondary port to a VLAN ID using the interface configuration command bridge multiple-port client-vlan vlan-id
- Supported model is 1700I
Has anyone of you guys have some inside information about this new access-point? :-) My guess is that it is gonna be the successor for the 1600I, so the same price but 802.11ac and CleanAir Express (?)
I am doing beta for IOS-XE 3.7 which supports this AP model & some other features.
Unfortunately I do not have this AP model at my hand to tell you any specifics.
Thanks for the information. Have you any ideas of the release date of a Prime Infrastructure Template.
We will try to deploy a few dozen of them. I think it will be easier with P.Infra
thanks in advance
yes. It looks like 126.96.36.199 code introduced this new AP model support for AireOS controllers.
