At least one post in this list should be updated.

The SDN Controller Related > Omada Software Controller vs Hardware Controller

That post is not accurate. There are significant differences and one difference is documented.

OC200 Does Not Control Deep Packet Inspection

Hi @MDowns 

Thanks for posting on the TP-Link community, and we certainly appreciate your feedback.

 

You may notice that the mentioned forums above are frequently discussed topics by users in our community, and they are the responses from other users who have used TP-Link products. These responses aim to provide references and suggestions for the community users especially the newbie.

However, due to product iteration updates and continuous firmware upgrades, many products and features may undergo changes and additions. We apologize that we are currently unable to update and provide explanations for all responses from all users.

 

Regarding your mention of the OC200 not supporting the Deep Packet Inspection feature, you can check the release notes of the latest firmware upgrade on our official website, where you will find all the explanations of the upgrade. And the Deep Packet Inspection is not contained under New Features & Enhancements.

 

Just for your reference, for Deep Packet Inspection feature, you may wait for the hardware controller 5.14 or later version update. But please note that the estimated date and whether this feature will be updated cannot be guaranteed, as the actual implementation depends on the firmware update status at that time.

 

Thanks for your understanding.
