How Cisco Aironet 2800 Series Access Points Differs From Its Competitors

Time to Value

We had to get the wireless controller setup with the right configurations to be pushed out to the Cisco Aironet 2800 Series Access Points and once we had that done then we were able to install an access point and have configurations deployed to the access point in about 10 minutes. Having a team …

Overall deployment took approximately three months to completely deploy the product, create VLANs and multiple SSIDs, and [fine-tune] the product according to our needs. We started to observe the results after a few weeks of complete deployment and configuration. This included improved wireless …

Setting it up was extremely simple. In our case, we do everything automatically with the wireless controller. We have no additional difficulties creating rules and configuring policies.

In initial it took quite a time to configure and optimize as per your organization, I can say it will take a week to implement up to 10 AP's in your environment.

Cisco Aironet Access points were purchased and implemented just before I joined my current company. So I cannot comment on how much time it took for the products to be delivered and implemented. However we were noticing improved results after implementation and the overall performance of our …

We got the new AP's installed, configured and firmware upgraded in minimal time compared to previous roll outs. Total implementation time is hard to gauge but it was must faster than the previous rollout, saving days of work. We noticed better performance right away and users were even noticing …

I would say we went from an hour setup on our existing (not centralized management) access points to literally a few minutes per device. Let me explain. Once you combine these with a centralized Cisco Wireless Controller and you configure it up for your environment, you can simply plug in these …

Addition of single Access Point does not take more than one hour. Replacing all access points and the WLC installation process took us 3 weeks, but we were gradually replacing old Access Points, and for some time running two parallel WLANs. It allowed us to make the transition seamless, and users …

The initial setup here is all in the Wireless LAN controller, which arguably may be a bit of a pain at first. But once you go through all the steps and configure your network, you're ready to go. You can then get a bunch of APs set up in literally minutes.

We had our site survey done by a third-party vendor to help us determine how many access points we would need for optimal coverage. Once we had that, getting the Cisco Aironet 2800 Series Access Points installed was not too difficult. We have them ceiling mounted across the office floors and in …

One of the great benefits of Cisco Aironet 2800 series is that it can work on mobility express mode with a specific IOS version which converts the Access point to a wireless LAN controller (with fewer features than the real WLC) which reduced the cost of buying a physical WLC and gives the high …

Maybe ClearAir is a feature that some users don't know that is already running by default in your access point. But if you have a wireless controller where you can check data or information collected by ClearAir you can see perfectly what kind of feature this one has.

Having ClearAir optimize your …

You can equip your 8000 series access points with external antennas that optimize the performance and avoid interference in a better way.

But in the scenario where our access points are installed we don't have the need for equipping these modular components. I recommend equipping them in scenarios …

We use the CleanAir feature and I think you have peace of mind with that, because we didn't have any real complaint, even if with users it is not all the time easy. The APs can adapt the signal as well based on the db received from another AP.

We have not benefited from certain features we would like to implement in our network, as they are not widely available on most AP models but only on selected ones. The example is WIPS., which is supported as integrated feature on only selected models. Using standard models we are forced to deploy …

We don't know if we benefit from that, we do know that the wifi works really well but that's all we care about, we haven't had wifi problems in our building ever, even before Cisco access points were installed so I guess that is a non-issue for us.

We heavily configure our CleanAir feature which is an excellent innovation that handles interference very well - so well that we even suppress rogue signals that have been flagged to cause massive interference for our wireless users. On the flip side, we can also identify where we have large areas …

If you're referring to the WSSI modules, then, of course, it's cool to have a feature that scan/monitor/secure the wireless environment while still service clients. But shouldn't this be standardized into the design across all the AP, especially the 1800 and above? The Cisco ISR Routers have come …

We utilize additional antennas to provide maximum coverage range in our client interface zone. They have the option for four different external antennas. We can also reduce the antennas to put them in a more targeted zone and still make it look non-intrusive.

Cisco Services Usage

No we generally don't engage Cisco Services- the cost of Cisco direct vs Cisco partners is still wide. When we have used it, it is the Luxury version of service and they are quick.

The lack of wireless devices is always an issue, with client link, the devices connect to the less used or closer AP, but do not stay connected to the first connection AP. ClearAir helps us by knowing where the interferences were coming from like a microwave from the kitchen or the air conditioner …

The Cisco 8540 Wireless Controller has allowed us to cover approximately a large city with wireless across the district. We have 2 controllers that run the school district with one being the main controller and one being the backup unit.

Our manufacturing plant is approximately two hundred acres divided into many sub-offices. The sub-offices are apart from each other, so for this purpose, we have positioned wireless access points in such a manner that our controller is reachable to all access points and all the SSIDs are visible on all access points. This allowed us to create a seamless roaming wireless network across our premise so wireless clients can easily roam throughout the whole premise with wireless connectivity.

The management of Cisco Aironet 2800 Series Access Points [are] performed by our Cisco WLC 5520. This hardware manages and automates the entire wireless network with the best configuration of radios, channels, RF to avoid interference [as well as apply] security and network rules.

We have around 34 access points in total and we are using Cisco 3504 Wireless controller to manage them. We have two of them and we have installed them in HA configuration. They have been working flawlessly and we have extended our wireless coverage in multiple areas of our head office and plant without the need to upgrade or change our wireless LAN controllers.

Without central management provided by Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers, managing WLANs that covers big areas would be cumbersome. All of security, user experience, band management that is invaluable. Reduction of management overhead greatly improves administrators and engineers work.

The Cisco Wireless LAN Controller (model 5508) has allowed us to extend our Wi-Fi coverage completely across all locations with ease. It has given us longer runs of Wi-Fi than we've ever had before, and from what we can tell almost no dead spots that our users will come across; its amazing.

We are using the Cisco 8540 Wireless Controllers to manage our Cisco Aironet 2800 Series Access Points at both our Chicago and Dallas offices. We have redundant wireless controllers in each office for high availability. This configuration seems to work very well--we haven't had any major outages or issues over the past few years.
