Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series IEEE 802.11A/B/G
Access Point
Low-profile enterprise-class access point with integrated antennas for easy deployment in offices and
similar RF environments.
Product Overview
®
®
Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series IEEE 802.11a/b/g access points provide high-capacity, high-security, enterpriseclass features in an unobtrusive, office-class design, delivering WLAN access with the lowest total cost of ownership.
With high-performing dual IEEE 802.11a and 802.11g radios, the Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series provides a combined
capacity of up to 108 Mbps to meet the needs of growing WLANs. Hardware-assisted Advanced Encryption
Standard (AES) or temporal key integrity protocol (TKIP) encryption provides uncompromised support for
interoperable IEEE 802.11i, Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) or WPA security. The Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series
uses radio and network management features for simplified deployment, along with built-in omnidirectional antennas
that provide robust and predictable WLAN coverage for offices and similar RF environments. The competitively
priced Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series is ready to install and easy to manage, reducing the cost of deployment and
ongoing maintenance.
The Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series is available in two versions: unified or autonomous. Unified access points operate
with the Lightweight Access Point Protocol (LWAPP) and work in conjunction with Cisco wireless LAN controllers
and the Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS). When configured with LWAPP, the Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series
can automatically detect the best-available Cisco wireless LAN controller and download appropriate policies and
®
configuration information with no manual intervention. Autonomous access points are based on Cisco IOS Software
and may optionally operate with the CiscoWorks Wireless LAN Solution Engine (WLSE). Autonomous access
points, along with the CiscoWorks WLSE, deliver a core set of features and may be field-upgraded to take
advantage of the full benefits of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network as requirements evolve.
The Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series delivers optimal value for offices and similar environments. Built-in antennas
provide omnidirectional coverage specifically designed for today’s open workspaces. A multipurpose mounting
bracket easily secures Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series access points to ceilings and walls. With an unobtrusive
design, Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series access points are aesthetically pleasing and blend into their environments. For

maximum concealment, the access point may be placed above ceilings or suspended ceilings. The UL 2043 rating
of the Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series allows the access point to be placed above ceilings in plenum areas regulated
by municipal fire codes. Offered at a competitive price, and optimized for easy installation and operation, the Cisco
Aironet 1130AG Series helps organizations attain a lower total cost of ownership.
Applications
In offices and similarly open environments, Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series access points may be installed on the
ceiling to provide users with continuous coverage as they roam throughout a facility. In school buildings and similar
facilities, the access points may be installed on the ceiling of each room and hallway to provide users with full
coverage and high network availability. In areas where a ceiling installation may not be practical such as retail
hotspots or similar small facilities, the access points can be mounted simply and securely on walls for complete
coverage with minimal installation cost.
Award-Winning Security
The Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series has achieved National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) FIPS 140-2
level 2 validation and is in process for Information Assurance validation under the National Information Assurance
Partnership (NIAP) Common Criteria program. The Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series supports 802.11i, Wi-Fi Protected
Access (WPA), WPA2, and numerous Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) types. WPA and WPA2 are the WiFi Alliance certifications for interoperable, standards-based WLAN security. These certifications support IEEE
802.1X for user-based authentication, Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) for WPA encryption, and Advanced
Encryption Standard (AES) for WPA2 encryption. These certifications help to ensure interoperability between Wi-Ficertified WLAN devices from different manufacturers.
The Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series hardware-accelerated AES encryption supports enterprise-class, governmentgrade secure encryption over the WLAN without compromising performance. IEEE 802.1X authentication helps to
ensure that only authorized users are allowed on the network. Backward compatibility and support for WPA client
devices running TKIP, the RC4 encryption algorithm, is also supported by the Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series.
Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series Access Points operating with LWAPP support Cisco Unified Intrusion Detection
System/Intrusion Prevention System (IDS/IPS), a software feature that is part of the Cisco Self-Defending Network
and is the industry’s first integrated wired and wireless security solution. Cisco Unified IDS/IPS takes a
comprehensive approach to security—at the wireless edge, wired edge, WAN edge, and through the data center.
When an associated client sends malicious traffic through the Cisco Unified Wireless Network, a Cisco wired IDS
device detects the attack and sends shun requests to Cisco wireless LAN controllers, which will then disassociate
the client device.
Autonomous or unified Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series Access Points support management frame protection for the
authentication of 802.11 management frames by the wireless network infrastructure. This allows the network to
detect spoofed frames from access points or malicious users impersonating infrastructure access points. If an
access point detects a malicious attack, an incident will be generated by the access point and reports will be
gathered on the Cisco wireless LAN controller, Cisco WCS, or CiscoWorks WLSE.
