Cisco Aironet 1550 Series Access Points

Cisco Aironet 1550 Series Access Points is very useful for outdoor locations that are more exposed to the wilderness or the weather, which provides uninterrupted wifi access during high winds and bad weather. It also is useful for hazardous locations that are prone to danger or wildlife. Unfortunately, it would not be appropriate to get a Cisco Aironet 1550 Series Access Point if it is only needed for basic wifi use, or indoor use, as the extra features and price would not be necessary.

Cisco Aironet 4800 Access Points

Cisco Aironet 4800 Access Points are well suited for a larger office or organization that has multiple buildings that require a larger-scale wireless network. The controller makes it easy to discover and deploy radios in a timely manner. The Cisco Aironet 4800 Access Points are probably not well suited for smaller offices where one radio will suffice.

I give this rating because right out of the box we were able to configure multiple radios in the console and deploy them to our environment in a very short amount of time. The only issues we had was there was a bad radio, which was replaced quickly and easily.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Aironet 1550 Series Access Points

The Cisco Aironet 1560 Series Access Point is very similar to the Cisco Aironet 1550 Series Access Point, but it has many differences too. The Cisco Aironet 1560 Series Access Points is made for more of an indoor use and less heavy-duty environments which leads to it being smaller and lighter. The Cisco Aironet 1550 Series Access Point is used for more of an outdoor use and heavy-duty environments which leads to it being much larger and heavier. Overall, if indoor use is required, I would recommend the 1560, but if outdoor use in hazardous and bad weather locations is required, I would recommend the 1550.

I gave the rating I did because, in my opinion, this product scales very well. We are able to add as many radios as we need to to expand our network to more sites, as we need them. So far, I have not had any issues when installing new radios.
