When it comes to deploying the Cisco Aironet 2800 Series Access Points in locations around the school district it has become easier as you get used to putting 4 screws in the mounting plate to the bracket and then slide the access point onto the bracket.

We have over thirty access points distributed in different areas of the organization for which we have created multiple SSIDs for segregation, according to departments with different VLANs. The controller has [an] approximately one hundred fifty access point limit which is enough for our requirements and future needs. The ability to scale is good and if needed the second controller could be added for more scalability.

Scalability can be easily accomplished together with a wireless controller. To install it is only necessary to connect the power and place it on the ceiling or wall. Comes with the installation kit with support and screws. The limit of managed access points will depend on the WLC installed.

Scalability of using Cisco 2800 series AP's is good as using it in a Cisco Environment like with Cisco Switches it helps a lot in troubleshooting and Cisco ISE provide great functionalities and features of wireless users control.

Cisco Aironet Access Points are made for large environments. There are multiple models to choose from depending on your budget and requirements. There are outdoor models as well which can be implemented in harsh outdoor environments. They are also scalable and can be increased as per growth of a company. the controllers support large number of access points, even the lower level controller supports upto 150 access points.

They are flexible and scalable in their own ways. When paired with a nice Cisco WLC then you get the full package. They have super long range and can host tons of clients. They can be paired with other models in the same system without issue. And doing a large rollout is made easy with Cisco's easy to use software.

I would assume that most people getting a large amount of these AP's would also be investing in a Cisco controller that combines all the management of these into one simple to use location. That's where it truly shines when you can deploy 10 of these in under an hour because the controller makes setup so simple.

The Cisco Aironet 2800 Series Access Points have been highly scalable, in particular with Cisco-rich environments. This is due to Cisco's DNA Center. Normally, it would take more time to deploy and configure multiple new APs on a network. Cisco DNA Center integration costs less time to configure all newly added APs to the network.

This is probably the best part of the Cisco Aironet 2800 Series Access Points lineup. They are designed to work seamlessly with the wireless LAN controller, and what you get (after some initial configuration) is an amazingly easy rollout of APs. You can literally plug these in anywhere on the network and the wireless LAN controller will identify, update, and push the appropriate configuration to it within minutes.

I gave this an 8 because we have found the Cisco Aironet 2800 Series Access Points to be very scalable when paired with a Cisco Wireless Network Controller. We are using the Cisco 8540 Wireless Controller to manage all of our 2800 APs at both of our corporate offices. We are able to push out new wireless policies and firmware upgrades easily using the controller.
