Microflex Wireless Firmware Release Notes For the Microflex Wireless System

Version 3.0.2

Release Date: 12/19/2014

These release notes cover the following models:

  • MXWNCS4/8 Networked Chargers
  • MXWANI4/8 Audio Network Interfaces
  • MXWAPT4/8 Access Point Transceivers
  • MXW1/2/6/8 Wireless Microphones

New Features

  • Lock Configuration – Enables more MXW devices to operate on the same subnet.  When a configuration is locked it reduces overall network communication with devices outside of the configuration.  This reduction in network traffic dramatically increases the overall number of MXW devices that can coexist on the same subnet.  It is recommended that all users lock their configurations after setup to optimize system performance.
