Can the 7970G support any form of 802.1x authentication? I beleive the firmware is 7970_64060118.bin. Do I need to upgrade the firmware to do this?
The 802.1x supplicant, as per the standard, will be implemented in phone firmware 8.2(1).
This will be supported on the 7096G, 7911G, 7941G, 7941G-GE, 7961G, 7961G-GE, 7970G, & 7971G-GE.
