A great example of use would be large warehouses that need network access for scanners and other equipment - use of central management and Aironet Access point would speed up deployment process. A scenario that Cisco AIR AP would not perform so well are small branches.

Access points are installed on the ceiling of the offices using a support that came with the box. These devices are PoE and do not need an external power source. Today they are connected via a power injector in the switch rack. This creates a cleaner and more charming look in the environment without a lot of wire. The AP 2802i supports a lot of connected clients and uses the 802.11n protocol working with the 2.4ghz and 5ghz frequencies.

Cisco Aironet Access Points are enterprise-grade access points and they are designed to handle a large amount of users with high-speed data access. Their hardware is very robust and high performance which lets it handle traffic at high data rates very efficiently. they are perfect for high-density environments lie universities, hospitals, stadiums etc.
They become expensive for a small office environment where there are [fewer] users.

We are using it in our office where most of them are wireless users. These AP are configured in AC mode to provide more efficient bandwidth to users.

As per my experience, Cisco 2800 AP with Cisco Mobility Express works well with lesser rogue AP's means where there are far less other Wireless Networks available. But in higher number of rogue AP areas like in corporate building etc. does not work properly especially in 2.4 GHz connectivity.

The reason [Cisco Aironet 2800 Series Access Points is] not a 10/10 in this section is really if you're using another provider for your main network equipment then this may not be the easiest transition. If you're already using Cisco stuff then yes go for the upgrade and get these better units in place. Their range and function outweigh their cost increase.

I gave the Cisco 2800 Series Access Points a rate of 8 because I have been really happy with this product that I have been installing and managing during the last 2 years. These access points have been efficient, reliable and have delivered a good coverage area at the same time for campus and for offices.

If asked by a colleague, I would first see if they need as robust of a system as the Aironet's provide. If they need something simpler, they can probably find those at better prices. But if you need a large number of users and a large coverage range, and manage a lot of points, then this is the way to go.

Our network architecture has been mostly designed on Cisco devices. If you have a similar case, definitely go with the Cisco Aironet 2800 Series Access Points. Consistency in the architecture has been a problem since last decade. Recently, vendors put in effort to increase their integration capability. Cisco is one of the best among its peers on integration to different vendors' network products. If your network architecture investment budget allows you to go with a better one, try the 3800 series.

Cisco Aironet 2800 Series Access Points are great for all wireless networks from SMB up to Enterprise. It is beneficial to manage the access points via a Cisco Wireless Network Controller as well, so you don't have to manage each individual access point. The Cisco Aironet 2800 Series Access Points can handle all of the recent WLAN protocols that should accommodate all of your end users' laptops, portables, phones, etc.

No doubt I would recommend these to any and all colleagues who are looking for the best access points around. Of course, you can find cheaper units but will they work as well as these? Highly unlikely. These things can handle tons of traffic, almost unlimited devices (it seems!) and hardly ever require maintenance.

Oficinas donde se necesite administrar y desplegar más de 20 antenas. Y los equipos tipo E en zonas donde se necesite potencia de radiación.

Offices where there are more than 20 antennas that need to be managed and deployed. Also Type E equipment in areas where radiation power is needed.

I have tested them in high density areas and these APs keep working really well. Also the roaming feature on default config works really well with our Windows Computers. I have tested Cisco Meraki in the past with MacBooks and the roaming wasn't as good as these.

The best scenario to use Cisco Aironet Access Points is when we use it with the Wireless LAN Controller as with this solution we get the full features of the Access Point such as roaming and AirClean features, and I think it will be a waste of money to buy this product and use it as a stand alone solution.

You can perfectly consider the 2800 series for scenarios where you need to deploy wireless services inside of an office. These type of access points are designed for these kind of environments.

If you need to install external access points I recommend searching another model including external antennas.

But if you need something not too expensive and with a great performance the 2800 series its perfect for your scenario where normally you have to connect between 30-50 users without losing performance. Just consider the applications that you will deploy through the wireless network.

They work quite well in offices or in meeting rooms. The number of devices per AP is rather good. I would not use wireless in general for really critical production environments.

If you have an office building that has air conditioner and people that is really wary of illnesses these Access points are the real only option, since these access points are airtight you can clean them just with a wiping cloth, most access points from other companies have at least one air flow inside the access point, that means that you have to open the access point to actually clean it, that's just not acceptable.

Cisco Aironet Access Points is well suited when you want a solution that will last you many years. We had some of our Cisco Acess Points in production from 2003 until we replaced them in 2011. Please note that we only changed them simply due to the wireless controller adoption we carried out from 2011 onward, but until then, it never went faulty.

With the built-in AVC, the wireless controller has very good analytics which we can then leverage to allow the QoS tagging to take place from the actual Acess Point itself.

On every solution or vertical, it perfectly adapts to every environment, the reports, analytics, integration with other solutions from Cisco, like ISE or prime, make the Aironet adapt to every environment in which you have indoor and outdoor and industrial devices.

The Cisco Aironet Access Points are suitable anywhere really. They have the ability to increase/decrease power. In an enterprise environment, CHD (Coverage hole detection) can be enabled to auto adjust power levels to provide coverage in areas with poor signal. In environments where coverage holes are expected, this setting can and should be disabled.
