This is totally understandable and has felt like it's been coming for a while given the limitations of the ZD1100...
One thing that caught my eye in the EOL notice is that 9.10 is going to be the last firmware for ZD1100. Can you comment on what the remaining roadmap looks like for the 9.10 release?
Namely, DFS is still missing from R500/R600 on 9.10 GA, even though the Class II Permissive Change Request was just filed with the FCC, so presumably enabling DFS is still in the works.
Also, there's no Airtime Fairness or WLAN prioritization for any 802.11ac AP yet. If the ZD1100 goes EOL with no plans to add these capabilities to the firmware, that'd be kind of unfortunate, considering that these feature(s) were on the datasheet for these AP's, and the ZD1200 wasn't available at the time these 802.11ac AP's were introduced.
Does Ruckus (or its resellers) offer any sort of trade-up / upgrade program for new ZD models? I remember something was offered for AP's when the R700 was introduced.
