Cisco Access Points AP541N - end of life?

Hi,

I have a site running about 12 Cisco Small Business Pro 500 (AP541n) access points. They run in clustering mode without a controller which makes management very easy.

I need to expand the site but the AP541n is now end of life. Anyone know the replacement that will work with the existing clustering without having to change all of my kit?

Many thanks!

Great thanks, will it work with the other units - i.e stay in sync with their cluster?

It'll talk to other WAP551's but if you mean will it talk to older 541's the honest answer is I don't know.

It should do though. I believe it uses the same management protocol.
