Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Aironet and Catalyst 3800 Series Access Points

The Cisco Aironet 3800 Series Access Points are used throughout our organization's administrative headquarters. The building has 7 floors and on each floor there are approximately 8 access points to provide wireless internet to employees and guests. In order to have access to the network, it is necessary to authenticate with ID and password registered through an authentication portal. And guests have access to a temporary password taken from the building's reception.
  • High speed gigabit. Supports 802.11 ac wave 2.
  • Control and visibility of wireless network traffic.
  • High density support for connected users.
  • Very robust but expensive.
  • No reports of problems, errors or defects.
  • High density support.
  • Maintain a healthy wireless network free of noise and interference.
This equipment won us over due to many differentials. One is that the high range of the antennas is excellent!
Access point 3800 has a technology known as a clientlink that is implemented in the equipment's own hardware and allows the access point to identify non-Wi-Fi interference. In other words, it is possible to identify devices that use the same frequency as access points (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) and change this channel in case of interference in order not to harm the network. These technologies are essential to keep the network always active, free from noise, interference, internet drops, signal reduction and always make employees and guests happy.
We chose the model Cisco Aironet 3800 Series Access Points because it supports high density of users connected at the same time and without losing and impairing network performance. The equipment has high-range omnidirectional antennas and many technologies that we like very much that help improve the signal. An appropriate scenario that we use is to use these access points and manage them with a central controller that allows the automatic configuration of the entire wireless network. This saves time, keeps the network healthy and free from noise and interference.
