What's New in Wi-Fi Cloud

For information about Wi-Fi Cloud enhancements and resolved issues, see the Wi-Fi Cloud Release Notes.

Wi-Fi Cloud 8.8.3 — June 5, 2020

  • You can now configure tri-radio AP models so that the AP operates in full WIPS sensor mode on radio 1 (2.4 GHz) and radio 2 (5 GHz), while the third radio is disabled.
  • The AP325 is now PoE 802.3af compliant. The AP now operates with full capabilities in both 802.3af (PoE) and 802.3at (PoE+) power modes.
  • You can now enable Cloud Integration Point (CIP) mode for the AP420 in Discover. To enable CIP mode, select Monitor > WiFi > Access Points, right-click the AP, then select Enable CIP Mode.
  • Added hardware-based encryption support for IPSec tunnels to increase the throughput and performance on AP420 devices.
  • Added support for TCP MSS (maximum segment size) clamping in the EoGRE, IPSec, and VxLAN tunnel configuration.
  • Some changes have been made to the LED behavior for the radio and LAN indicators on an AP:
  • A radio LED indicator is on when the radio is operational with an enabled SSID or if WIPS scanning is in progress on the radio.
  • The primary LAN LED indicator is on when the interface is connected and up. Any additional LAN ports on the AP will be indicated as on when a VLAN extension, wired extension, or link aggregation is enabled on the interface.
  • The automatic channel selection algorithm is enhanced to improve optimum channel distribution in high density deployments.
  • Added support to restrict AP operation on the 5 GHz band in the Israel regulatory domain.
  • APs now support the RADIUS authentication NAS-IP-Address and NAS-IPv6-Address attributes.

Wi-Fi Cloud 8.8.1 — November 22, 2019

  • Enhanced role-based access control for RADIUS MAC authentication — You can now configure RADIUS MAC Authentication to assign role profiles to clients both before and after authentication. This enhances Wi-Fi Cloud integration with third-party RADIUS servers and deployment scenarios that use external RADIUS portal authentication. For more information, see RADIUS MAC Authentication.
  • Uniform LED patterns for all 802.11ac Wave 1 and Wave 2 APs. For more information, see Troubleshoot WatchGuard AP LED Status or the Hardware Guide for your AP model.
  • Support added for the upcoming AP225W wall-plate access point.
