New features added:

  2. Different color coding for DFS, non-DFS, supported and not supported channels for a country.

 

  • Client rate limiting (WAC7XX)
    • The Admin use can now set the maximum bandwidth that can be used by a client. This feature will ensure network availability and business continuity in congested environments.

 

  • Several enhancements to the Firmware upgrade page.
    1. Displaying the firmware version on both the boot partitions.
    2. Option to upgrade either of the boot partitions.
    3. Option to select the partition to boot from.

 

Enactments to existing features:

  • Increased performance in high density & congested environments for WAC7X0 APs
  • Increased performance when mixed mode (11g, 11ng, 11a, 11na, 11ac) clients are connected to the network for WAC7X0 APs
  • Increased performance for multicast streaming for WAC7X0 APs resulting in better and smoother video distribution.
