Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Aironet and Catalyst 2800 Series Access Points

Currently, we are in the process of evaluating and integrating the Access point in our infrastructure. So far, the Access Point is only used within a single department and we intend to deploy if selected. Currently, we have a large network of multiple models of APs, (2700s, 1500s etc).
  • Sturdy Design: Device looks and feels very high quality.
  • Great coverage and supports Wave 2 +.
  • MU-MIMO Support as well as the option for higher Transmit Power.
  • With the large heat sync, this device is heavy.
  • The external antenna model doesn't look nice. Some customers might not like it.
  • Requires additional power, existing power injectors will not be sufficient. Not necessarily an issue but worth mentioning.
  • Stability
  • Very easy to obtain support and hardware replacement if required.
We have not had the chance to try out these features yet.
This is not applicable in our organization yet.
The Cisco Aironet Access Points are suitable anywhere really. They have the ability to increase/decrease power. In an enterprise environment, CHD (Coverage hole detection) can be enabled to auto adjust power levels to provide coverage in areas with poor signal. In environments where coverage holes are expected, this setting can and should be disabled.
