Cisco Aironet 1540 Series Access Points

If you want an enterprise wireless network Cisco might not be the de-facto standard (as they are in wired networking equipment) but they are a strong contender. If you are a small company Cisco might not be the first to go to, but definitely give it a good look. Prepare by doing some measurements in your building.

With all that was said in the [Things Done Poorly] section, I believe [Cisco Mobility Express] has been extremely helpful in allowing me to complete my tasks at hand. I trust it. It's dependable. It's reliable. An excellent product to say the least. One which I'm glad we have on campus and one which I hope we maintain.

Cons

Cisco Aironet 1540 Series Access Points

  • At one point we did have stability issues on some devices but that was solved by rebooting. Strangely most devices than work for months.
  • Price is a bit high.

I can not think of a scenario that I ran into an issue with an outage. As I said, sometimes it is difficult to gain access to the product in the morning hours (may take about 3-4 tries to get in). I've never experienced an unplanned outage. Once, you're on - you're on for about 7 hours (if not longer).

We have little network downtime, if any. The product works well for our company of 400 and we have very minimal issues that come up and most are fixable very quickly.

As that part of the company is a Cisco Oriented company, it was the best way to go. We did look at other products but were happy to add them to our contact with Cisco equipment and services.

  • I can speak for myself, the product has worked well that each employee is able to work from an on-campus setting to an off-campus setting without restrictions
  • The way we set up the campus schedule is one item which we need to have done right - this product helps us when students are deciding upon which courses to take.
  • Accuracy is one thing which my employer is after, this always me to be as accurate as possible
