Unsupported Wi-Fi Access Points (WAPs) and related infrastructure will be lifecycled.
Nearly 5,000 WAPs (model 2700/3700) across over 130 buildings lose support June 2023 and will stop operating when software is next loaded for security patches and updates. The WAPs have been in service between five and eight years depending on their date of purchase (meeting lifespan expectation). The WAPs replacing them will be three generations newer boasting much higher speed, quality, and capacity.
