    Since CCXv5 is a proprietary specification from Cisco and requires licensing, it's extremely unlikely that Apple would pay that license yet not advertise it anywhere, so my guess is no.

    802.11w is not supported by OS X, but you'll probably get it working under Windows 8/8.1 (but not Windows 7 or earlier).
