Pros and Cons

  • provide a large choice of antennas for all the needs (3802E version)
  • provide a good flexibility with the XOR antennas and the DART port
  • provide a very good and reliable connection
  • The APs require more and more power. POE (15W) was enough for the previous models and now this model need POE+ (30W). It should be reduced
  • We use mesh technology in the plants with 3700 Series and it works perfectly. Unfortunately this mode is not available anymore on the 3800.
  • Too expensive and less and less trust on Cisco when they propose a new update that looks to create sometimes more bugs that it fix

Pros and Cons

  • Coverage
  • Density
  • Clean air
  • Dart antennas
  • Weight. Although I understand antenna eElements need space and that adds to weight.
  • Size. This goes in line with weight, but compared to the Meraki APs, there has to be some room for improvement.

Pros and Cons

  • It delivers performance for secure and reliable wireless connections. The best part is reliability with speed.
  • It provided the best performance for mobile devices and laptops due to the availability it provides - 3 times more than normal ones.
  • The scalability is huge can go up to, or more, than an 18k access point which can almost cover any big organization.
  • The highest 802.11n performance with Cisco CleanAir technology - for a self-healing, self-optimizing wireless network.
  • Cost is a bit high. However, it's an extremely good product.
  • I faced a few RF issues. The engineering team can do better on this.
  • RF hidden node issue.

Pros and Cons

  • Performance has been solid.
  • Reliability. I don't think we've replaced a single AP since deployment.
  • Support has been helpful when needed.
  • Initial setup was a chore. Adding APs to the system now is straightforward, but getting them up initially required a lot of time.
  • Reporting is lacking from the controller. It requires Prime Infrastructure which is another difficult setup.
  • Pricing. They are premium priced.

Pros and Cons

  • Cisco APs are managed very easily from a Cisco WLC controller.
  • Cisco APs provide lots of enterprise-grade options such as rogue detection and automatic power configuration.
  • Cisco APs have many different mounting options, which makes them very versatile in a healthcare environment.
  • Cisco APs cost can be high compared to other similar solutions.
  • Cisco APs can require very specific configuration settings to work well with certain medical devices.
  • Cisco APs are a beast to manage autonomously and really only shine when a WLC is in play.
