ASK the Pack

I wanted to ask if it is possible to use a ZD1200 with a ZF7782 Ap ? And if so, what firmware could run on both devices? :)

ZF7782 is an EOL AP and it is supported on ZD with 10.1.2.0.318 (last version which supports this AP model).
Thank you :D
Glad to help you!

What is the successor to the ZF7782 who would work with the ZD1200 and the old ZF7782 AP ? :D
Is it the T310s ? Or are there any newer Ap´s
Please refer the EOS announcement document for more information.
Sorry for so many Questions :D
In your opinion, would it work in an existing network of 7782 Ap ́s if you extended this and used the T310s Ap for the extension? Starting point is the ZD1200,
and if I use the 10.1.2.0.318 Firmware version it should work with the "old and new" AP´s or did i miss something ? ^^
I would like to hear your opinion about this if it is okay for you :D
@julian_schaffaff as a best practice, always read release notes of any specific version and it will have most of the answers there.
Please refer the release notes from the below link, it has supported, unsupported AP list and other information about this release.
okay i´m sorry for so many Questions , thanks for the quick reply :D
Have a nice day
As pointed by syamantak, you need to look in release notes. If you want still use EOL AP, you are stuck with latest version supporting them (or sometimes with a bit older version, as last doesn' work with this AP very reliably, how it is ZF7982 and 3.6.2 combination -- which results in AP regular hang-ups, you have to use 3.6.1 instead), so you have to llok in release noites which APs are supported with this version. If you have vSZ, you can have zones with different firmware, but there are also limits what can be done, and anyway one zone always have same version on all APs.
Okay thank you very much ^^
and to give a short answer -- you can't get working on the same ZD ZF7782 and and new 802.11ac or ax AP.
If you have a lot of ZF7782, the best would be to have them work as they are with old controller, and have newer AP on different controller.
We have some customers with ZF7782, which work about 10 years and still have no issues, they are built as a tank, and very reliable, so if they service is still enough, just keep them running as they are, don't change a setup.
If you need to expand coverage, create a new system for that.
How can we improve?
