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.
  • Good housing
  • Internal antennas
  • Low power consumption
  • Better colorways
  • Antennas are an eyesore
[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.

  • Cisco Aironet 1560 Series
The Cisco Aironet 1560 Series Outdoor Access Point comes in a very robust and rugged housing. This means that we can deploy them directly into our wind turbine towers, without installing them inside an expensive outer casing. One AP at the transition piece in the bottom of the tower and one at the top, in the nacelle, is usually enough for full coverage. This provides excellent WiFi conditions to support our on-site technicians.
  • Rugged housing and very robust design.
  • Two different models.
  • One with internal antennas only (1562I) and another model with external antennas as an option (1562E)
  • PoE with very low power consumption
  • Excellent temperature range (-40 to 65 degrees celsious
  • A bracket for magnet mounting would be a nice feature.
  • White colour option.
  • 11ax support
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.
When we utilize Cisco AP's in our offshore facilities and substations they are often installed inside technical areas with a very high density of radio noise, coming from other telecom systems, generators and radio equipment. Due to ClearAir we never seem to have coverage problems, expecially when using models with external antennas.
