Cisco Aironet Access Point
Provide Fast, Reliable Connectivity
Mission-Critical Access Points
Cisco® Aironet® access point provides industry-leading performance for secure and reliable
wireless connections. Whether you need entry-level wireless for a small enterprise or
mission-critical coverage at thousands of locations, Cisco offers a broad portfolio of access
points targeted to the specific needs of all industries, business types, and topologies.
In today’s business world, the wireless network is more than just a convenience; it’s mission
critical. Wireless networks operate in a shared spectrum with a variety of applications and
devices competing for bandwidth in enterprise environments. More than ever, IT managers
need to have visibility into their wireless spectrum to manage radio frequency (RF)
interference and prevent unexpected downtime.
Most access points can be purchased in a standalone or controller-based model
to support unique requirements for scale and mobility services. Controllers reduce
overall operational expenses by simplifying network deployment, operations, and
management. They allow network administrators to remotely configure and monitor
several access points to thousands of access points in a simple and efficient way. A
controller is required to support voice, location services, guest access, and advanced
security. Controller-based access points also support OfficeExtend for secure mobile
teleworking and Enterprise Wireless Mesh which allows access points to dynamically
establish wireless connections in hard-to-connect locations.
A wireless network with standalone access points offers a low-cost, entry-level
solution that does not require a controller. It is ideal for small-scale networks with less
than 20 access points, and offers base-level wireless functionality with the flexibility to
scale and add services over time by adding a controller.
Cisco’s CleanAir technology can detect, classify, locate, and mitigate RF interference
automatically and instantaneously. CleanAir gives you access to real-time and historic
information about devices and assets located anywhere in the wireless network. Now you
can enforce policies and improve network performance based on intelligent information.
With CleanAir technology retailers can help ensure secure credit card transactions, hospitals
can improve efficiency with wireless patient care and the secure transfer of confidential
medical records, and colleges can use Wi-Fi voice services to improve campus security.
Cisco Aironet access points in the mission critical category provide the highest performance
and scalability to support business communications today and in the future.
