    I saw in the release notes of the newest IAP Firmware that support for an Wifi6 AP was implemented.

    Are there any details already?

    @Ibeme Be on the lookout this coming week for more details.

    Oh, very nice. I hope this means we get to see a wall AP based on the AP-505H - the hardware team has made some great improvements to that model on the enterprise side. And the AP-515 is also workhorse of an AP. 

    What would be really awesome in the consumer space is seeing the InstantON WiFi6 line make use of the ZigBee hardware that's already built into the APs - And this is where I can see the consumer line diverge a bit from what the enterprise guys are doing... I think an InstantON version of the AP505H in partnership with some of the residential IoT vendors like Philips Hue could be an absolutely killer AP(p). Naturally, I don't see Google wanting to jump on board with Nest, because they have their own wifi product, but I think the Wifi6 hardware and residential IoT has some tremendous potential on the software side. There's a big need for securing IoT by default, so there would be great benefit from being able to easily create an IoT network with InstantON with a single click/tap, and generate "device passwords" (Borrow the MPSK code from AOS 8.7!), and then setting up a "secure by default" set of rules between IoT and LAN, while keeping the stuff like bonjour and mDNS functional between them.

    That's an improvement, good first step for making them more attractive for the resi market.

    Is a similar kit planned for other access points? AP11, AP12? I have 2 pcs AP11 at home and the original wall bracket is terrible. Other companies (Cisco, Ubiquiti) have better wall mounting. And their access points look much better on the wall.

    Is there any other 802.11ax access point with 2x 4x4:4 MU-MIMO on the roadmap (for this year)?

    @mimul The InstantOn AP22 was just released and is our current WiFi-6 AP.
