    Aruba just announced their line-up of 802.11ax access points. They say that they are confident they will be software upgradable to pass the AX-certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance later in 2019. Down- and uplink OFDMA, downlink MU-MIMO, TxBF, TWT, 20MHz-only STA and 160MHz are supported, but uplink MU-MIMO, spatial reuse and 80+80 MHz unfortunately not. At first there will be 3 models, the AP 515, AP 535 and AP 555.

    I'm very curious which chipsets they will use. It looks like a strong line-up, but unfortunate that they don't support MU-MIMO in uplink and spatial reuse.

    Broadcom for the low-end (low-end is a figure of speech as those AP are enterprise with the enterpri$e price).
    QCA for the high-end.

    They always paint up a pianting of Picasso, but it always ends up with a picture from kindergarten.
