AP Firmware

Mist allows you to automatically upgrade multiple APs on your site.  Set an upgrade schedule best fit for your site, such as times when there will be minimal user impact.  Choose between production firmware or beta firmware to be upgraded to your APs at your selected time.  If there are no recent firmware versions available, your site will skip the firmware update until the following week.

If you would like to upgrade specific AP models to specific firmware versions, you may choose to Auto upgrade to custom firmware.  Ensure full control over your network by specifying the desired upgrade firmware versions, while still maintaining the convenience of using the auto upgrade system available under the site configuration.  With this feature, you may separate the firmware versions running on your AP41, AP21, BT11, etc.

To use Firmware Auto Upgrade, navigate to Organization -> Site Settings and select your site.  In the Firmware Upgrade box, select your desired upgrade version and set your upgrade schedule with a Day and Time.

Choosing “Auto upgrade from custom firmware” and clicking on “Select Version” brings up a box which allows you to designate specific AP models with specific firmware versions to be upgraded to.
