Hi Everyone,


We're excited to be releasing v8.4.0 for airMAX AC devices.   This release brings GPS Sync/TDD Framing support to airMAX M (XW based) on v6.1.0+. You can download it in the Downloads Section HERE.


NOTE:   If you are going to use GPS/fixed frame for your mixed-mode network, remember it supports only AC and XW today so don't deploy on sectors where XM is also present
