Upgrade recommendations for controllers / WCS

Currently running Wism on 4.2.61 and have another to put MESH code on. Our WCS release is

Would appreciate input on the right mix of releases to move to supporting mesh on one wism and no mesh ap's on the other - for now. thx


Re: Upgrade recommendations for controllers / WCS

The latest mesh release is MESH

and the latest non-mesh is

There are the 5.X releases but I keep hearing people say not to go to it. They also just released which supposedly supports mesh again. However, in 5.X you can't use 1505 and 1510 Mesh APs nor can you use the 1000 Series Access Points (like the 1020).

With all the said, I'm guessing your safest bet is to do one controller on and the other on

What kind of mesh are you looking to do anyhow? Enterprise Wireless Mesh (indoor)? or just the 15XX series outdoor mesh APs?

Re: Upgrade recommendations for controllers / WCS

Outside Mesh w/1522- have also heard concerns with 5.x controller code. But not too much with the WCS code... what I have seen is supported with 5.x WCS only.. In fact I was planning to install what you listed until checking WCS release notes on supported controller code.


Re: Upgrade recommendations for controllers / WCS

Well this is interesting. Also says it is compatable with 5.x WCS... and further down it says it only works with the windows 2003 variant (not linux). But I am running WCS and I don't have any problem with my controller.

Furthermore, the 4.2 code that I suggested only says it work with like the 4.2.110 WCS.

I guess now I see why you wanted to know a good solution for all 3 together. I just know I've never had a problem with my controllers and WCS.
