Hi Grazio and Ventsislav,

There is no official announcement yet for R550 support on Unleashed but you may expect it to be supported on 200.9 or later version.

Once 200.9 will release, you may refer the announcement on our forum and it will include all the details about new version and supported features/APs.

Regards,

Hi Simon,

For the rough idea, 200.9 will release in Q4’20 and it will support R550.

To be more precise, it could be Sep end or Oct mid but this is still tentative and may change.

Will the R650 be at the same time or is it on a different timeline?

R650 will be the same time.
I've found the (pre-release) documentation for unleashed 200.9.

R550, R650, R850 and T750 will be supported with unleashed 200.9.

Hi Syamantak,

When do you expect the 200.9 to be released?
Will the 200.9 support the 802.11ac Wave 2 devices?

Thanks,
Veno

Hi Veno,

This information is not officially confirmed so I am unable to confirm it.

These kind of uncertainty force people to wait and not buy the current wave 2 devices if they are not in a hurry, because they are not sure if they can work together with the new 802.11ax devices in the same unleashed network. Same issue as Wave1 devices are not supported in 200.8 firwmare...

Hi Ventsislav,

I understand.

I will check, if I can find and share more information.

AFAIK AC Wave 2 support should not be removed in 200.9.

Hi Ventsislav

As of now it's looking good for AC Wave 2 APs in 200.9.

R510, R610 and so forth are all listed as supported in the (pre-)release documentation for unleashed 200.9.
