CISCO IOS SOFTWARE RELEASE 12.3(2)JA NEW FEATURES

Support for Cisco Aironet 1230AG and 1130AG Series Access Points

Support for the Cisco Aironet 1230AG Series and Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series access points, is now available. These access points support all access point features introduced in Cisco IOS Software Release 12.3(2)JA, as well as all Cisco IOS Software access point features supported by Cisco Aironet 1100 Series and 1200 Series access points in Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(15)JA, Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(15)XR and earlier releases, unless otherwise noted.

Support for Cisco Aironet IEEE 802.11a Radio Part Numbers AIR-RM21A and AIR-RM22A

Support for IEEE 802.11a radio part numbers AIR-RM21A and AIR-RM22A for the Cisco Aironet 1230AG Series and 1200 Series access points is now available. These new IEEE 802.11a radios will support all access point features introduced in Cisco IOS Software Release 12.3(2)JA, as well as all Cisco IOS Software access point features supported by Cisco Aironet 1200 Series access points in Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(15)JA, Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(15)XR and earlier releases.

AES-CCMP

This feature supports Advanced Encryption Standard-Counter Mode with Cipher Block Chaining Message Authentication Code Protocol (AES-CCMP). AES-CCMP is required for Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) and IEEE 802.11i wireless LAN security.

HTTPS-HTTP with SSL 3.0

This feature supports a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)/Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTPS) method of managing Cisco Aironet access points via a Web browser using HTTP.

IEEE 802.1X Local Authentication Service for EAP-FAST

This feature expands wireless domain services (WDS) IEEE 802.1X local authentication to include support for Extensible Authentication Protocol-Flexible Authentication via Secure Tunneling (EAP-FAST). IEEE 802.1X local authentication was introduced in Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(11)JA.

Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) Required Elements

This feature supports the required elements of Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM), which is designed to improve the user experience for audio, video, and voice applications over a Wi-Fi wireless connection. WMM is a subset of the IEEE 802.11e quality of service (QoS) draft standard, supporting QoS-prioritized media access via the Enhanced Distributed Channel Access (EDCA) method. Optional elements of the WMM specification, including Call Admission Control using Traffic Specifications (TSPEC), are not supported in this release.

VLAN Assignment By Name

This feature allows the Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) server to assign a client to a virtual LAN (VLAN) identified by its VLAN "name". Prior to Cisco IOS Software Release 12.3(2)JA, the RADIUS server identified the VLAN by ID. This feature is important for deployments where VLAN IDs are not used consistently throughout the network.

Microsoft WPS IE SSIDL

This feature allows a Cisco Aironet access point to broadcast a list of configured SSIDs such as SSID Lists (SSIDL) in the Microsoft Wireless Provisioning Services Information Element (WPS IE). A client with the ability to read the SSIDL will be able to alert the user to the availability of the SSIDs. This feature provides a bandwidth-efficient, software-upgradable alternative to multiple broadcast SSIDs (MB/SSIDs).

HTTP Web Server v1.1

This feature provides a consistent interface for users and applications by implementing the HTTP 1.1 standard (see RFC 2616). Prior to this release, Cisco software supported only a partial implementation of HTTP 1.0. The integrated HTTP Web Server API supports server application interfaces. When combined with the HTTPS and HTTP 1.1 client features, this feature provides a complete, secure solution for HTTP services to and from Cisco devices.

IP-Redirect

This feature provides the capability to redirect traffic intended from a particular IP destination address to another IP destination address as specified by the administrator.
