Cisco Aironet and Catalyst Access Points

The scenario of these Aironet 2800 series access points is for indoor environments and is focused on corporate environments with a high density of simultaneous users. The device has a very beautiful appearance, white and without external antennas with radios in 2.4ghz and 5ghz. The speed is high and almost matches the wired network. We separated the SSID of guests and staff by different VLANs to provide security and control of the data.

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Aironet and Catalyst Access Points

Although it is a good product and could easily fulfill our requirement, we already have a lot of Cisco products made by Aironet for our wireless network. Our trust in our reseller for Cisco equipment was the other reason.

Return on Investment

Cisco Aironet and Catalyst Access Points

  • Fast wireless deployment: just connect a new AP to an 802.11x controlled switchport and profiling (ISE) and WLC makes all the job. This allows us to enable new workplaces within the organization.
  • Great coverage: less access points per area, avoiding increasing budget.
  • Mobility: With Aironet and Cisco WLC we have seamless roaming.
  • Investment protection: We can even use old AP models like Aironet 1142 (discontinued) with our WLC , so we don't need to get rid of them.

  • 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
