Is there a xBee S2 firmware update to use the 6LoWPAN protocol?

Hi all,

“All existing device which use ZigBee/6LoWPAN (802.15.4) standard can easily migrate to Thread with the existing radios with just a firmware update. No Hardware Needed”

Is this true and if so, is there a firmware available or are there plans to release one?

Thank you

No Digi has not released a 6Low Pan firmware update for the XBee modules.
