The Cisco Aironet [2800 Series] Access Points are deployed across the whole school district, in approximately 70 sites. This solution has allowed staff and students to connect to the district network and to the internet with district-issued devices along with any personal device they happen to bring to work with them.

We deployed Cisco Aironet 2802 [Series] Access Points along with its controller, Cisco 3504 Wireless Controller, in 2018. Thus far, the wireless infrastructure is working very well. The main highlight of this wireless infrastructure is seamless roaming and client migration from one Access Point to another. We use the MAC Address filtering feature and the system is working well according to our needs.

We have been using the Cisco Aironet 2802i [Series] Access Points with built-in antennas in our branch office environment and the 2802e model with external antennas in the shed to extend the wireless signal to the RF collectors. The Cisco [Aironet] 2800 Series Access Point uses 802.11ac wave 2 (Wi-Fi 5) protocol and has great performance reaching rates of up to 2.6Gbps on 5Ghz radio. These devices are being managed by a WLC 5520 controller and monitored by Prime software. These are hotspots that support many users connected at the same time and still establish good performance, range, and wireless internet from anywhere in the company.

We had requirements around implementing WiFi across our offices in our plant area. Initially, small business WiFi was implemented as there was less demand and fewer users. But, as the organization grew our user base also grew and we needed to upgrade our Wireless infrastructure to support the growing need. After evaluating multiple vendors we decided to go with Cisco Aironet Access points. Since then our wireless infrastructure is working great and we only needed to fine-tune it a bit after initial deployment. In fact, now we have shifted almost all users on WiFi and no one is using cable anymore.

The Cisco Aironet [2800 Series Access Points] are an upgrade from a previous version of the Cisco Access Point line up, so they were specifically purchased due to the age of the previous product. We have a mix of the 2800 and 3000 series from the same line and are very happy with all of them because they solve a lot of issues that our non Cisco AP's had.

The Cisco Aironet Access Point line up has been a part of our business for years now. We did have a mixed environment of other AP types at that point but now we're fully rolled out on all Aironet devices for all our access points. Doing this allowed us to have only one type of AP to manage and being able to do this all in one place.

Mix of AIR-AP2802 and AIR-CAP2602 are used in our customer warehouses and branches, and they act as a primary network access for office computers and warehouse equipment. Depending on location, access points are managed by different hardware revisions Cisco WLC in 8.5 firmware version. In most cases, they are unproblematic, and after installation do not require any physical maintenance.

We use the Cisco Aironet 2800 Series Access Points to expand our wireless coverage across our company grounds. These devices are reliable with their WiFi 5 standards. Compared to newer models, the Cisco Aironet 2800 Series Access Points are not expensive because they have less time until the end of life. Our logistics department use lots of handheld inventory check devices, IoT barcode scanners, and storage area environment sensors connected to our wireless network. It causes a significant increase in the number of wireless clients, which requires stable and reliable wireless access points for continuous operation. The Cisco Aironet 2800 Series Access Points's\ dual 5 GHz support enables us to connect our devices with faster communication while serving hundreds of devices. Lastly, it supports Cisco DNA Center integration, which makes it better. Easily manageable and configurable via Cisco DNA Center, configuring all the Cisco Aironet 2800 Series Access Points from one dashboard saves time.

Our company has completed a full rollout of all new Cisco Aironet 2800 Series Access Points, which were chosen to solve the problem of dead Wi-Fi zones and overwhelmed existing access points. They are deployed to the entirety of the organization at all our remote buildings and at our main site. We have recently removed all of our older access points and replaced them with Cisco Aironet 2800 Series Access Points.

We use Cisco Aironet 2800 Series Access Points as the APs for our corporate wireless network at our Chicago and Dallas offices. We have the APs ceiling mounted at intervals across the floors and in central conference rooms to make sure that we have steady coverage throughout our two offices. The Cisco Aironet 2800 Series Access Points have been rock-solid since we have installed them, and having them coupled with the Cisco 8540 Wireless LAN Controllers makes wireless network administration relatively straightforward.

Cisco Aironet Access Points are used widely in our organization for WiFi coverage over all our buildings to facilitate a wireless connection to our network. We were using Cisco 2700 series and now we are upgrading to Cisco 2800 series. We are using these Access Points with the Wireless LAN Controller to manage them.

Aironet nos provee movilidad en todas nuestras oficinas. El uso de nodos ethernet en los lugares ha pasado a 2do termino. Ahora los colaboradores pueden trabajar entre varias sedes y entre varias salas de junta u oficinas gracias al roaming y potencia de los radios.

We use Cisco Aironet Access Points as our main point of wireless connection through the corporate office. Mainly we use this model inside the office and it has met our expectations in a great way.

Since the deployment of these models of access points including other ones like the 2700 series we have never had issues with performance or availability of the services that access points offers to the corporate office.

One of our clients was wondering which wireless solution would fit perfectly with its offices; the solution should segment every user according their job role. Simultaneously all sensitive data must be protected and never be comprised. Then we proposed Cisco Aironet with WLC, on premise solution to isolate and protect everything. AP 2800 series was chosen due to its antenna pattern (ceiling and wall mounting were surveyed) and the coverage is awesome.

We are upgrading from the 2700 series to the 2800 series. We've currently implemented it in one office. So far the ones we have replaced have very good overall performance.

We use Cisco Access points (APs) in every site (almost 100) and mostly to connect users' laptops and smartphones. In several sites we also use Cisco APs to connect barcode readers for production, and Cisco wireless phones.

We need wifi access in all our building, we use 802.1x authentication and move while on meetings on our building so we need good roaming experience. Cisco access points are the only ones that support fast roaming with 802.1x, besides that they are airtight so no issues with bacteria being trapped inside the access point, just a wiping cloth can clean the access point.

Currently, we are in the process of evaluating and integrating the Access point in our infrastructure. So far, the Access Point is only used within a single department and we intend to deploy if selected. Currently, we have a large network of multiple models of APs, (2700s, 1500s etc).

We use Cisco Wireless Solution across all our campuses across 24 sites. We have a mixture of requirements where we use the Cisco 1800 and 2800 Acess Points for internal locations based on user density.

We then deploy the Cisco External 1530, 1550 and 1570 AP's across sites that require a mesh design. This helps especially when cabling is difficult across the landscape. We deploy the 1530's to our other campuses as it is easier in terms of replacement options and costs. For our main campus, we standardize on the 1550 and 15070 devices to handle the heavier loads.

Across the South Pacific, this is a better option given our landscape. Sometimes proper cabling resource are absent on site, and the Mesh design works really well where we backhaul on the 5 GHz and serve clients on the 2.4 GHz.

The Aironet solutions were first used to solve connectivity issues, away from the analytics, reports, mobility express, the issue was solved and all the features are so important to us.

Cisco Aironet Access Points are being used by the organization to help solve the connectivity issues we previously had where the internet connection was noticeably different depending on where one was located in the office. The Access Point helped provide a stable connection with minimal disruptions in speed regardless of location.
