  • Roaming while we are on meeting
  • Categorize traffic
  • The management interface of the 5508 Cisco controller where we plug them in is very user friendly
  • Price tag is high.
  • They are not pretty, compared to 2700 access point these are bulky and non-aesthetic.
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.

We use Cisco Wireless Access Points to augment our wired infrastructure.

  • Spread spectrum support.
  • Rogue app detection.
In small to mid-sized deployments, Cisco Aironet and Catalyst Access Points have some coverage gaps. They work really well in high-density environments. With an overlapping coverage model, Cisco Access Points thrive. In smaller models, the roaming and handoff are lackluster at best. You end up with a lot of rap errors.

Definitely not underneath mechanical penthouses, but I suppose that holds true with any wireless access points.

All of our wireless production networks are running on Cisco technology. We are a success case in the Latin American region with this technology. In the past, we had a lot of network disconnections that affected our production processes and our clients. After the implementation of Cisco Aironet, the issues are under control.
  • Roaming.
  • Signal stability.
  • Multiple SSID.
  • Signal potential.
  • Self-configuration.
If you have a lot of devices, Cisco Aironet is a great option. If you have multiple branches, you can combine Cisco Aironet with a wireless LAN controller and have a very scalable architecture. If you add Cisco’s Prime, the security across the wireless network will be strong, and I think this is a complete solution.
