When to expect WPA3 availability on Peplink devices?


#1

Good morning Peplinkers,

With the news that WPA3 should be available in 2018, can we expect Peplink to implement the new feature on the APs and other devices like the Balance One?

Since It was only announced 4 days ago (and hasn’t been released yet) it won’t be on any Peplink Development Road Map currently.

Peplink will do an engineering review of the requirements in due course I’m sure (once released), and then advise when it will become available - but I wouldn’t expect them to be able to respond to this for a few months yet.

I know it’s early days, but for those of us with planned purchases later in 2018 it would be helpful to have an idea of Peplink’s general plan and timeline for WPA3 support.

Also, as a company who’s entire purpose is providing network and connectivity devices to security aware businesses and consumers, I’m sure Peplink won’t be silent for too long.

Failing to plan is planning to fail.

Dear friends,

WPA3 is definitely an important new standard in the industry and Peplink is watching this closely. There is no doubt that we will work hard to adopt it as early as possible for our products.

Right now, it’s hard for anybody to come up with a firm schedule but I think it’s fair to say it will appear sometime this year (given it’s JAN now) :slight_smile:
