Deployment was very easy. Controllers were virtual allowing for very speedy deployment. The APs also use the same bracket as almost all previous generations which have allowed for a 1:1 swap in a lot of places. As we look to expand our deployments and refresh cycles we can reuse cabling and …

The company implemented the access points together with the Cisco supplier. A site survey was carried out to understand how many units were needed and the best installation position in the office. It was simple and we had no problems.

The implementation timeline of the Cisco Catalyst 9100 Series Access Points is the same as what we saw with previous Cisco models of access points.

Implementation was fairly quick, given that some of our teammates had [a] background in deploying Cisco Aironet and Catalyst 9100 Access Points (end to end, from design to physically installing them).

At the start of the project We had a few problems with the integration and navigation, the connectivity was unstable than with the pastime, the solution was stable. Now is a great solution that has helped us to solve many problems that we had the connectivity, coverage, and support. Now we are very happy.

The 1850 access point has good performance for low to medium levels of simultaneous accesses. I don't recommend it for high density because it can create bottlenecks in the wireless network. Overall, it is excellent for any indoor environment to provide secure access and good signal and connection quality.

We have tested multiple other vendor devices and head to head they perform at the top of the list in almost every test. As we vetted the migration from our AirOS devices to Catalyst devices we labbed up these new APs and ran a wide range of head-to-head tests.

Cisco ap performance is high. but coverage is less when compared to other wireless brands. some peoples compare with other brands and are disappointed with the number of APs required to cover some user areas. because it needs more number of APs when compare with any other brand such as unify. other than that, all features are looking good

Performance is an important requirement in the wireless network and the [Cisco] Catalyst 9105 [Access Point] manages to deliver great throughput as it is a WIFI 6 device with MU-MIMO 2X2 and beamforming technology. [It also] supports a medium density of users without experiencing internet downtime issues.

We have rolled out the [Cisco] Catalyst 9100 Access Points as our previous models have come end of life/end of sale. We are more than pleased with the performance that the [Cisco] Catalyst 9100 Access Points have provided our locations and have not run into any issues during or after deployment.

Excellent performance from this solution. Top-notch bandwidth handling and users commend the higher speeds of this solution. Cisco adheres to all WiFi standards, with very few user issues with connectivity or compatibility. Cisco [Aironet and Catalyst] 9100 [Access Points] is their premier solution featuring WiFi 6, allowing for the highest bandwidth, up-to-date security features, and the best coverage.

As mentioned, we have tested this prior to full deployment and we were not disappointed. Wireless coverage is superb, and the signal strength (albeit we have configured multiple in a relatively ample space) provides easily manages our office workload, [especially] now that people are not fully into the office due to remote work for some employees.
