Cisco Aironet 1560 Series
Our Cisco [Aironet 1560 Series] Access Points are being used across the whole organization to increase the range of our wifi system. It allows us to provide coverage to the entire building as well as outside. The outer shell makes it more resistant to the elements, and the internal antenna makes it discreet and unobtrusive.
[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.
The Cisco Aironet 1560 Series Access Points have fairly flexible and scalable software, and it's not too difficult to add more access points. The software is very able and multiple departments can easily take advantage of the access points. The only downside is that the speeds are not as high as it could be.

Getting the Cisco Aironet 1560 Series Access Points up and running was not too difficult, and overall a smooth experience. The installation process took just under a day. After installing the Cisco Aironet 1560 Series Access Points, we noticed instant results. The coverage was excellent and much better than before in outdoor locations.
