Is it likely that Aerohive will ever release any updated firmware for the AP121 or AP330 to bring them up to a similar version number with HM 6.6r1?

Hi Luke,

The AP121 and AP330 will see support in the upcoming 'golden' 6.5r3 release of HiveOS.
(6.5 being the current long term support release branch/train.)

This is provisionally due around the end of this month.

The AP330 will also see support in the upcoming feature release of HiveOS 6.6r2

Cheers,

Nick

Hi Luke,

Aerohive is due to release HiveOS 6.5r3 which is a golden release including many bug fixes and stability improvements and will be compatible with the AP121 and AP330.

As for features, it is unlikely the AP121 will receive the features available in 6.6, mostly due to memory limitations. For this reason, the AP121/AP141 is not considered a viable platform for soon-to-be-released HiveOS 6.6r2. Having said that, the AP330 is considered for 6.6r2 so will be receiving additional features.

Excellent news Nathaniel. Hopefully this will address some of the issues I had been having with IDM proxy elections!

I've clearly got the wrong end of the stick.

The original plan was to release the HiveManager NG November update alongside HiveOS 6.5r3 and 6.6r2 simultaneously on November 15th. Some alterations have been made to HiveOS 6.5r3, thus delaying all three until November 21st.

Will HiveManager NG be available to existing customers using an on-premise appliance?

Right, ok. So presumably no GW period then. That's where I've got confused.

HiveManager NG On-Prem will be coming soon. As for existing customers, pricing and upgrade paths are still being drawn out.
