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, highsecurity, enterprise-class 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.

Data Sheet
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 Wi-Fi 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-Fi-certified WLAN devices from different manufacturers.
The Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series hardware-accelerated AES encryption supports enterpriseclass, government-grade 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.

Cisco Unified IDS/IPS
This integrated software feature is part of the Cisco Self-Defending Network and is the
industry’s first integrated wired and wireless security solution. When a trusted client
acts maliciously, the wired IDS detects the attack and sends shun requests to Cisco
WLAN controllers, which will then disassociate the client device.
Management Frame Protection
This feature provides 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
points and reports will be gathered on the Cisco wireless LAN controller, Cisco WCS,
or CiscoWorks WLSE.

environments. With two high-performance radios, these access points provide simultaneous
support for the 802.11a and 802.11g standards, offering 108 Mbps of capacity for your growing
WLAN. Incorporating AES encryption in hardware, the Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series complies with
the 802.11i security standard and is WPA2-certified, helping to assure that your network employs
the strongest security available while maintaining interoperability with products from other
manufacturers. Additional design features, including diversity antennas with omnidirectional
coverage and an unobtrusive form factor, along with an attractive price, provide low total cost of
ownership.
