Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Aironet 1540 Series Access Points

Cisco Aironet 1540 Series
At one of our locations, we are using the Aironet Access Points throughout the buildings. We are situated in multiple old building in the same street but we managed to create a wireless network so roaming all the buildings is possible. This makes working on the wireless network a snap.
  • Good coverage after detailed preparation.
  • speed is good.
  • At one point we did have stability issues on some devices but that was solved by rebooting. Strangely most devices than work for months.
  • Price is a bit high.
  • Speed is good with Aironet, which gives happy users that can do their work.
  • For a time we had stability issues, which had a negative impact but rebooting help for months and probably after an upgrade was solved.
I cannot say for sure with hard metrics that we benefited from it, but I am sure the hardware innovations are good.
We didn't improve our Access Points very often with these add-ons, unfortunately. This is an issue of priority and resources. But having the add-ons there we can still benefit from it.
As that part of the company is a Cisco Oriented company, it was the best way to go. We did look at other products but were happy to add them to our contact with Cisco equipment and services.
If you want an enterprise wireless network Cisco might not be the de-facto standard (as they are in wired networking equipment) but they are a strong contender. If you are a small company Cisco might not be the first to go to, but definitely give it a good look. Prepare by doing some measurements in your building.
