Ubiquiti Rilascia il Firmware 5.3 e Avvia il Beta Program

Ubiquiti ha rilasciato il 14 Gennaio 2011 la versione 5.3 del suo firmware per la gestione della sua gamma di apparati Wireless, introduce la compatibilità con i nuovi prodotti (NanoBridge e 3G Station), delle nuove funzioni tra cui AirSelect che permette di selezionare automaticamente il canale per la trasmissione del segnale Wireless ed infine delle ovvie correzioni al precedente firmware.

Inoltre le future versioni Firmware Beta non verranno più diffuse pubblicamente, per evitare incomprensioni con utenti meno esperti, è pertanto richiesta la registrazione al Beta Program per accedere al download dei firmware di test.

Dopo il salto troverete il change log integrale del Firmware 5.3 in lingua inglese…
