In our case, we use the Cisco Small Business 100 Series Wireless Access Points solution in our more than 100 points of presence distributed throughout the country. In these sites we must handle the mixed complexity of administrative or commercial users as well as operational users who use different types of mobile devices to carry out their daily tasks. Additionally, we must provide connectivity to customers who visit us in our stores, who on many occasions must carry out operations through our online platforms.
  • Good price-product relationship.
  • Number of concurrent devices depending on the model.
I believe that this solution gives us the best relationship between the cost and the quality of the product when used in sites with a small or medium extension and with a relatively low concurrence of devices. It allows us to continue having typical functionalities of the enterprise segment but at a very convenient cost.

Together with the Cisco Business 350 Series, Cisco Small Business 100 Series Wireless Access Points have been the norm whenever we need to deploy wireless capability in the remote locations or temporary sites we often build due to requirements (both internal and external/customer). It ties beautifully with the quick deployment and easy management type of temporary infrastructure, not to mention the hassle-free breakdown when it's time to pack up.
  • Powerful signal and amazing coverage
  • Simplicity in the deployment and configuration
  • Quick "pack and unpack" solution
  • Possible room for growth once the small business use case has been lapsed
  • Somewhat limited/available configuration items
We have used the 100 Series Wireless Access Points as our "go-to" wireless add-on, to complement our other Cisco Small Business quick deployment equipment. Depending on if the need for wireless arises, having these Cisco Wireless Access Points makes it so much faster and easier to set up to be operational in no time at all.

Cisco Small Business AP are the backbone of about 75% of the wireless service we offer. The devices are very steadfast and simple to administer. The sole issue we ran into were remote update issues. Sometimes the devices would contact abrupt during or after the process. A few of them were disabled due to poorly created files.
  • Access coverage is great.
  • Devices are simple to place and activate.
  • There weren't as many replacements required as with other products.
  • Quality control of available updates could use a tweak or two.
  • Functionality in legacy networks are not always the best.
Because of the unique setup on our campus, these provide great coverage for our dorms, office areas, and smaller classrooms. However, in areas were the load was much higher, the devices could become overtaxed after about 25 users depending on the strength of the devices.

Before work-from-home, Internet deliverability was the no. 1 priority for any office. If employees can't get good Wi-Fi connections in every corner of the office, it leads to lost productivity, employee unhappiness, and also impacts the ability for teams to have meetings with customers and potential customers--directly impacting the success of those conversations, demos, etc. Wi-Fi access points are definitely a whole-company issue and are used by everyone, almost every minute of every day.
  • Encryption/Security
  • Coverage
  • Scalability
  • UI/UX simplicity
  • Meant for too small of a business
  • Lack of full control for IT team
This is a great setup for a small business. It can be controlled by an app and doesn't require an IT person to really control and troubleshoot day to day. That said, we ended up going with another vendor as we do have technical people who work for us full time and we found at 50+ people we needed stuff that IT could really dig into and didn't need the friendly interfaces.
