The June 2018 release of Riverbed Xirrus Management System - Cloud (XMS-Cloud) is now available. In this release, you can automate network changes by scheduling configurations and eliminate client connectivity disruptions with in-service AP software upgrades.
Network administrators are not required to be actively logged into XMS-Cloud to make configuration changes. This release enables IT staff to schedule necessary changes at a specified time, automating network configurations.
From the Profiles top level menu, select a specific profile and make the desired changes. Upon saving the configuration, a popup window will guide you to either push the changes immediately or schedule it to happen at a specific time. A record of the change is saved in the Audit Trail, which can be accessed from Troubleshooting menu from the username drop down on the top right.
We have implemented intelligent AP software update to greatly minimize or completely eliminate end user disruption during AP software upgrades. Neighboring APs in a network communicate with each other and if roaming is turned on, end user sessions will be moved over to other neighboring APs before the software is upgraded.
Only one AP among the neighboring APs will be upgraded at a given time to ensure maximum availability. When the networks are designed appropriately, this feature supports a true 24x7 operations for environments such as manufacturing production plants, assembly lines, and others.
From the username drop down, choose Settings and select the Firmware Upgrades tab. Select the appropriate update process for speed or high availability.
