of the Cisco Aironet 1300 Series include: education, enterprise, government, healthcare, military, public safety,
transportation, and WLAN service providers. These organizations have a variety of possible applications (Figure 2)
that are discussed in the following paragraphs.
Campus Networks
Whether a typical college campus or corporate offices with multiple buildings, IT professionals are faced with
interconnecting local area networks in each of the buildings. These LANs require cost-effective, high-bandwidth
connections with the flexibility and control often not available via leased lines or cable installations requiring
trenching.
Nomadic Networks and Users
More and more, networks are “on the move.” Vehicles such as buses, trains, ambulances, and patrol cars are being
equipped with their own LAN-supported devices such as notebooks, personal digital assistants (PDAs), cameras,
and scanners. These mobile networks need to be interconnected to provide information-sharing for more informed
decisions, improved public service and operational efficiency through more personnel time in the field, and new
passenger services.
Outdoor Public Access
The proliferation of WLAN hot spots has allowed users to stay connected while in hotels, airports, and even coffee
shops. As more users desire ubiquitous connectivity, outdoor hot spots are being added—some of which include
multiple city blocks or even town centers. These outdoor hot spots can be cost-effectively deployed with equipment
designed for the outdoor environment.

Cisco Wireless Security Suite
The Cisco Aironet 1300 Series secures the network with a scalable and manageable system featuring the awardwinning Cisco Wireless Security Suite. Based on the IEEE 802.1X standard for port-based network access, the
Cisco Wireless Security Suite takes advantage of the Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) framework for
user-based authentication to provide the following benefits:
• Cisco Wireless Security Suite uses strong, mutual authentication to allow only legitimate clients to associate with
legitimate and authorized network RADIUS servers via authorized access points.
• It provides dynamic per-user, per-session encryption keys that automatically change on a configurable basis to
protect the privacy of transmitted data.
• Stronger encryption is provided by Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) enhancements such as message
integrity check (MIC), per-packet keys via initialization vector hashing, and broadcast key rotation.
• The Cisco Aironet 1300 Series in access-point role supports Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) for interoperable,
standards-based WLAN security. It supports all 802.1X authentication types, including Cisco Extensible
Authentication Protocol (LEAP), Extensible Authentication Protocol Transport Layer Security (EAP TLS) and
types that operate over EAP TLS, such as Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol (PEAP), EAP Tunneled
TLS (EAP TTLS), EAP Subscriber Identity Module (EAP SIM), and EAP Flexible Authentication via Secure
Tunneling (EAP FAST).
• The Cisco Aironet 1300 Series in bridge role supports LEAP for mutual authentication and both Cisco TKIP
and WPA TKIP algorithms. However, Cisco TKIP is recommended when the Cisco Aironet 1300 Series is
configured as a bridge.
• A wide selection of RADIUS servers, such as the Cisco Secure Access Control Server (ACS), can be used
for enterprise-class centralized user management. RADIUS accounting records for all authentication attempts
are supported.
• The Cisco Aironet 1300 Series is ready for AES support, requiring only a software upgrade.
Client Address Resolution Protocol Caching
The Cisco Aironet 1300 Series in access-point role will respond to Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) requests
on behalf of IEEE 802.11 Cisco Aironet, Cisco Compatible, and most Wi-Fi certified wireless client devices. This
facilitates IP address resolution without requiring the wireless client device to leave power-save or idle modes,
which extends battery life.
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol Client
The Cisco Aironet 1300 Series automatically obtains an IP address from a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
(DHCP) server.

Power Injector LR2
The power injector converts the standard 10/100BASE-T Ethernet Cat5 RJ-45 interface that
is suitable for weather-protected areas to a dual F-Type connector interface for dual coaxial
cables that are more suitable for harsh outdoor environments. While providing a 100BASET interface to the Cisco Aironet 1300 Series, the power injector also provides power to the
unit over the same cables with a power-discovery feature that protects other appliances
from damage should they accidentally be connected. As an added benefit to the installer,
the automatic medium-dependent interface crossover (Auto-MDIX) feature is built in,
allowing the dual cables to be swapped while maintaining the same capability. To support
longer cable runs from your network switch or router, the power injector is designed to
accommodate up to a 100 meter coaxial cable run plus 100 meters of indoor Cat5 cable—
enabling total cable runs up to 200 meters. Lightning and surge protection is also included
at the F-Type connector interface to provide added protection to your network devices. The
power injector requires a 48V DC source supplied by Cisco.
Power Injector LR2T
The Power Injector LR2T supports all the capability of LR2. It is designed for use in
transportation applications and operates with an input voltage range of +12 to +40V DC. The
DC source is provided by the user. The LR2T can therefore be vehicle or solar powered.
