Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Aironet 1800 Series Access Points

The Cisco Aironet 1850 Access Point is one of the models used at our branch office to provide wireless internet access in offices. The equipment is installed on the roof and is managed by an appliance-type Cisco Controller. They are well-built equipment and modern design, with 802.11ac wave 2 technology, with internal antennas, wide signal coverage, and extra features that optimize performance, directing the signal to the user, connecting more users at the same time. On Cisco 1850 Access Point we have 2 SSIDs, one for the corporate network and the second SSID for external people, wherein this network we set access restrictions and temporary for a period of 2 hours.
  • 11ac access point with great construction and design. Indoor model with integrated antennas for offices.
  • Access point supporting [a] high density of connected clients. It has access control and authentication.
  • Access point with technologies to optimize the signal, avoid noise, interference and maximize the number of connected clients without loss of performance.
  • Cisco Smartnet Warranty, delivering excellent quality of service and technical support for hardware and software updates.
  • Energy saving.
  • Smartnet warranty is expensive. It is necessary to evaluate the 8x5 option which is cheaper than the 24x7.

  • The solution brought more signal quality with state-of-the-art access points.
  • The solution increased the capacity of users connected by radio on the wireless network.
  • The solution promoted greater security on the network.
I like the performance of the Cisco 1850 Access Point because it supports [a] high density of clients connected at the same time and has no performance dredging. It is a device with great construction, good antennas, good chipset that has intelligence and supports diversities and environments with [a] high user density.
It can easily support growth and be deployed in multiple locations. The access point has an integrated controller that can manage up to a certain amount of equipment in different locations. Setup is instantaneous and takes approximately 10 minutes to configure itself.
After the acquisition, our team made a plan and implemented it in our branch. The configuration is performed automatically by the controller and the devices automatically [provided] with the rules we apply and the best signal configuration defined by the Cisco algorithm.
For companies that have older access points that only support older 802.11n technology or less, or that don't have a wireless network solution yet, this new generation Catalyst Cisco 1850 equipment is the best purchase option. They are smart, robust, and deliver a lot of quality to the user with the new 802.11ac wave 2 technology. They can be used in scenarios of small, medium, and large organizations and are easily configured.
