All OM series and A series access points can mesh with each other as long as they are capable of running 6.4.x firmware. Some of the A42 and A62 models require 6.4.x firmware and cannot be downgraded to 6.3.x firmware. The meshing protocol changed between 6.3.x and 6.4.x firmware so as long as an OM access point can run 6.4.x firmware there should not be any issues meshing. We recommend against using the OM5P-AC as a mesh gateway or repeater because it has a smaller antenna and the least range of all of our access points. Technically it can still mesh but the results are often less than desirable.

In the following Help Center article you will find a list of access points and their latest possible firmware supported. The TBD indicates that the last supported firmware has yet to be determined and so those models can run 6.4.x firmware.
