Ubiquiti lanza finalmente AirOS 6.0 para equipos Airmax

Finalmente AirOS 6.0 esta aqui con toneladas de actualizaciones para la gran mayoria de dispositivos Airmax que ademas agrega soporte para Cliente en modo AC incluso en dispositivos que no lo posean.

La lista de cambios es realmente muy extensa. Entre lo mas destacado se encuentra la posibilidad de realizar cambios de configuracion sin que el dispositivo tenga que reiniciar, lo cual acelera muchisimo el proceso de ajustar las configuraciones. Se ha agregado el soporte de Airmax AC incluso para dispositivos que no lo soportan, siempre que sea en modo cliente y detras de un dispositivo configurado apropiadamente como AP que si soporte AC.

Uno de los cambios mas llamativos ademas es el hecho de que ahora se obtiene informacion de consumo de CPU y Memoria, algo que estaba solo disponible en dispositivos Airmax AC y superiores y un funcionamiento mucho mas estable y menor consumo de RAM producto de las actualizaciones al kernel de Linux.

La lista de dispositivos soportados por esta nueva actualizacion es muy extensa e incluye:

  • Bullet M2/M5/Titanium
  • Rocket M2/M2 Titanium/M3/M365/M900/M5/M5 GPS/M5 Titanium/M6
