New MAC address range?

We have noticed a new MAC address being used on AP300's - 00:23:68:XX:XX:XX.
This is shown on the IEEE web site as being owned by Motorola Holtsville.

Is anyone aware if this MAC address is going to be - or is already - in use on Mobile devices?

Thanks
Andy

George,

Do we have any timescales for this?
Last time we moved from 00:A0:F8 to 00:15:70 we had lots of issues with MAC filtering.
Will there be a general annoucment of the change?

From what I understand, you will also need Fusion driver - v2.57.0.0.018r to support the new MAC address range.

Fusion 2.57 will support the new MAC address, that's true.  There will releases of other versions of Fusion to support this MAC address also.  2.55.1 16R is currently in T&V, 2.61 13R is available, 2.35 23R is already released.

Did a PMB get released for this or were we just going to wait until customers started reporting problems?

I don't want to be funny but we had exactly the same problem last time we added a new MAC range, and it would be nice to think that we had learned from previous mistakes.

Has provison be made for the support loop such that customers are not going to start getting radios with new MACs before they have a chance to test and deploy the BSPs / Fusion versions that are needed?
