Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Aironet and Catalyst 1850 Series Access Points

Currently we use Cisco Aironet and Catalyst 1850 in implementations with small and medium-sized clients, to help them cover areas where the wireless is unstable or there is a weak signal. This product has been used in small areas such as a room or an office, as well as in large areas such as an amusement park, in that aspect it is a very flexible and reliable product.
  • Connect Users via Wireless
  • Flexibility by not requiring a physical controller.
  • It´s a little bit expensive compared with other brands.
  • If you don´t have PoE in your switches you nedd adquire a Power Adapter o Power injector.
  • Easy to deploy, you only nedd to configure one time.
  • Return on Invest, you will covering the demand of users.
Speaking about Access Points in the 1830 series that are devices slightly below the 1850 series that we have talked about, the biggest advantage that I think we can have when buying one of the 1850 series would be to have a greater data transfer from the Access Point to the users since the 1830 APs only reach 867 Mbps at the frequency of 5GHz, compared to the new series that can reach 1.7 Gbps. That helps us a lot when making transfers of heavy data, improving download time on wireless devices, be it a smartphone or a laptop, etc.
The Access points of the 1850 series are well implemented in small or medium-sized companies where, just by buying the required access points, you can put them to work. That is, they do not need a physical controller to manage them since a single access point can provide administration up to 25 more. You can also configure another AP to act as redundancy of the master, in the event that the master disconnects the backup will enter and take its role.
