Will the Cisco Aironet 1250 (802.11n) only require an Firmware upgrade after it has been approved for use and gets past draft 2.0? Im thinking of purchasing for testing but want to make sure that being that its in its early stages that the code will only need to be upgraded once the standards have been created.
As I have understand, Cisco go for a software upgrade, but regarding Cisco's document the "802.1n Wireless Technology Overview" there is no guarantee for that in this case. However Cisco are using a modular design of the AP and if the ratified 802.11n needs hw upgrade only the radio modul should be changed.
Q. What is the procedure for upgrading radios in the Cisco Aironet 1250 Series Access Points once future technologies become available?
A. The Cisco Aironet 1250 Series was designed as a modular and upgradable access point platform. When new radio modules become available, the old radio module may easily be removed and replaced in the field.
Q. Will Cisco guarantee that the Cisco Aironet 1250 Series can be upgraded to support the final 802.11n standard?
A. Cisco cannot guarantee that the current Cisco Aironet 1250 IEEE 802.11n draft 2.0 standard radio modules can be software-upgraded to support the final 802.11n standard. However, the modularity of the Cisco Aironet 1250 helps ensure that should the final 802.11n standard require a hardware modification, the impact will be limited to just the radio modules, and will not require a change to the access point. The Cisco Aironet 1250 Series radio modules are field-upgradeable and easy to change.
Investment protection: The Cisco Aironet 1250 Series is a powerful, modular and upgradeable platform that provides support for the IEEE 802.11n draft 2.0 standard today. Platform modularity ensures a smooth migration path to emerging higher-performance wireless technologies and future advanced services.
