3702i AP and 5508 controller

 

 

Hi,

 

just some questions before we make a decision on new APs.

 

Is it true 7.6 is the oldest controller version for 3702 i APs?

 

If we need to upgrade from 7.2.111.3, will this affect our current APs(3502i and 3602i)?

 

Can we do a direct upgrade from our current version(7.2.111.3 to 7.6)?

 

When we upgrade the controller and install our new 3702i APs will there be any difficulties when roaming from our 3502is,3602is to our 3702is?

 

Thank you

Just to add, go with 7.6.110

Just to add, go with 7.6.110.0 (7.6MR1) version & upgrade your 5508 FUS to 1.9.0.0 as well. It is very important.

Here is the link for FUS 1.9.0.0 Release notes

Word or warning:  What kind of PoE power do you have.  If you want to install 3700 it is strongly recommended your switch is capable of delivering up to 20.0w PoE to the switchport where the 3700 is installed.

 

You can power up the 3700 with just 15.4w PoE but this means that you'll just get lower data rates.
