We recently released airOS LTU v1.1.2 for the AF-5XHD. This release is a real milestone for the product, as it introduces several powerful and long-awaited features that will help to make your network faster, easier to operate, and more resistant to interference
A lot of WISPs are familiar with network slowdown. You set up your network and go about your business, until calls start coming in that the internet is slow; or maybe your own internal network management system sends you some alerts. Everything was fine earlier, what’s changed now?
Thousands of network operators across the world got their start with airMAX M, and continue to enjoy great success today on every continent. Without the effort of all these entrepreneurs, the internet would be nothing more than a dream for millions of people today. And without affordable airMAX M equipment, these operators wouldn’t have been able to become the WISPs they are.
We recently released the two latest versions of airOS – v8.5.8 for airMAX AC, and v6.1.8 for airMAX M. Both of these firmware releases have some interesting new features and fixes to explore, and the airMAX team as well as the beta testing community have run both of these releases through their paces. Here are some of the key features and fixes from both releases.
In recent weeks, the news of the VPNFilter malware has caused many network operators to look at their network designs, device configurations and general operational security to make sure they are protected against this issue, as well as any others that may occur in the future. Although recent airOS software is not vulnerable to this attack, keeping your device software up to date is just one part of a sound network security strategy. In talking to and advising network operators over the years, I’ve found myself returning to a few common points of security advice.
Today we released airOS v8.5.4 for airMAX AC and airOS v6.1.7 for airMAX M. Over the past couple of months, the whole airMAX team and our community beta testers have put in a lot of time and effort to make sure these releases and all their great new features and fixes are ready to go. Without further ado, let’s dive right in and take a look at some of the most important ones.
For many years, ISPs both wireless and wired have been looking for a simple, cost-effective way of providing in-home Wi-Fi service to their residential customers. Rather than having the subscriber buy their own Wi-Fi router which ends up being a support nightmare, or providing a consumer-oriented off-the-shelf home Wi-Fi router themselves which are typically not any better, these ISPs need a quality solution that provides performance they can stand behind in addition to being easily manageable and inexpensive. So far, this has been hard to find.
WISPs and other network operators are changing. They’re getting bigger and dealing with more demanding customers every day. With airMAX, airFiber, EdgeMAX and now UFiber, they’ve got the hardware they need to satisfy their customers and grow their business. But what about software?
