Re: AP 3700

You should be fine with that or else Cisco would be in trouble:). I have many clients that jumped on the the 3600's and the AC modules. And if you also look at the AC module, the initial release was wave 1 and wave 2 has support for more channels. These to can work together, but just remember that channels need to be setup the same. So a mix with wave 1 AC and wave 2 AC can work, you just should've have the one support more channels than the other. I'm guessing when it does come out, that a guide would be posted.

Re: AP 3700

Actually to step into ac while the 3600 is supported on 7.2, 7.5 is required for the module ..

3600 with module requires 7.5
3700 requires 7.6

Re: AP 3700

Features are dependent on WLC code. The 3700 will require v7.6. The 3600 requires v7.2. You go from modular to non modular but you would need to look at the release notes when available or ask your Cisco SE as some info might still be NDA.

Re: AP 3700

Well here is link to the 3700, you can just look at that and compare that to the 3600 with the AC module.

Many thanks to your reply.

We have already few 3600 ap's placed on our building for just data support. And now we look forward to provide voice & video supported wifi network with 3700 ap's. It is obvious that ap count will get increased.

In this scenario, shall we keep existing 3600 by procuring ac supported module and also 3700 for additional (to support video)

or we need to completely migrate to 3700 series ap's?

In clarity, shall we keep both 3600 (with ac module attached) and 3700 on the same floor? Will it create any issues?

Re: AP 3700

George is right about code support for the AC module. I was just looking at the AP support.

Just logged in to check the price between 3600 vs 3700.  Prices are the same.  Don't see any logic to go 3600, if that's the case.
