Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Aironet and Catalyst Access Points

We are using the Cisco Aironet access points across the whole organization. The access point and wireless network address all of our wireless needs across the organization, including medical equipment, telephony, as well as other applications. We also service a few branch offices with these access points from both a data and telephone perspective.
  • Deployment is easy from the Cisco Wireless LAN Controller. Also, if setting up autonomous mode, is pretty easy as well.
  • Easy to deploy and inventory.
  • Administration is complex but easily learned.
  • Roaming seems to be an issue with newer devices on the older 1600 access points.
  • The coverage provided by different power levels doesn't seem accurate at times.
  • Susceptible to common interference issues in healthcare.
  • Obviously, these things aren't cheap. But we do believe that with the functionality we get, we are getting a good return on productivity.
  • These things are really reliable, we don't spend a lot of time troubleshooting or replacing them.
We love CleanAir, it does a great job of reducing our interference in most areas. We are just getting ready to upgrade to the 2800 model so we are really looking forward to that!
We haven't used anything like that yet.
We haven't ever used anything else, other than Cisco wireless.
Definitely not underneath mechanical penthouses, but I suppose that holds true with any wireless access points.
