    Hi all,

    One of our clients has a WiFi network that includes 4 HPE OC20s (JZ074A), but they reached end of sale at the end of last year - the recommended replacement is an Aruba Instant On AP11 (R2W96A), but I understand the software on them is different. So my question is, can a R2W96A be used to extend the existing network or will we have to replace the existing access points? Is there anything else I should be aware of?

    Thanks,
    Rawad

    @rawad_m OC20 AP's and Instant On AP's will not work in the same cloud portal and would have to reauthenticate between the two networks when you roam from one network to the other. To avoid interruptions you should use a single platform for the entire network.
