At the beginning of the implementation, we had a lot of problems with the barcode readers because of the change of AP coverage areas. Thanks to the software that has the controllers and cleanaire features and the power management and channel change, we were able to control and improve the problem we had when the operations moved and changed coverage zones.

Cisco Aironet and Catalyst Access Pointss are excellent choices for both our enterprise offices and remote production sites due to Cisco’s depth of wireless product options. I have not encountered any scenario where I could not use Cisco APs.

Cisco 1550 APs are installed outdoors, in the company's courtyard. They are connected to posts and some connected to a mesh network. APs are external models and have protection against rain, snow, fog, winds. So far, we have had no technical problems with these models. I recommend it because they are very efficient, with great performance and excellent warranty and technical support.

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 1560 Series Access Points are] not great for inside the office, it makes the office look ugly. It's antennas are large an annoying to look at, and the color of the shell doesn't make it any better. Its great outside as the housing is very solid and provides good coverage. With an internal antenna, it is somewhat manageable in an office, but it is best suited for outdoor use.

Due to its software, it can fit in any outdoor deployment or requirement. It has POE Out port, Various Antenna selection, various powering option, GPS, Industrial rigid design (coming from a very hot and humid area), SFP compatible. You can deploy this AP nearly on any use case you face, I have a successful deployment of 400m distance between two of them as a MESH and it has been running fine for the past 2 years on the beach, it's also providing wired connection to clients on the MESH side. Some other use case is a WGB connected to a AirQuality sensor that has been up since day 1, with no problems whatsoever.

Cisco Aironet has a wide product portfolio for all scenarios, both indoor and outdoor. I've worked as a field engineer installing Cisco wireless solutions and now as a customer using and managing them. Across the many uses, I must mention: warehousing, enterprise office, outdoor wireless bridge, and high density wireless access. Of course, the success of any implementation will depend on a well conducted site survey.

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.

In a rough outside environment - even offshore installation. Combined with a wireless LAN controller installation and deployment is a very smooth experience. This Access Point isn't suitable for installation in an office environment since the housing is very bulky and military gray colored. The CleanAir feature enables excellent coverage in locations with very high channel density and even radio noise.
