Likelihood to Recommend

Cisco Aironet and Catalyst 9100 Access Points

These access points are well suited for enterprise environments that require Wi-Fi 6 capability.

Back in the day these were really well priced, and had some amazing coverage. After using newer Cisco gear, while more expensive, they dont shine so brightly anymore. They did have trouble under load as well. I would recommend them to someone only if they were really constrained in their budget for wifi equipment.
