Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Aironet and Catalyst Access Points

Cisco Aironet 1540 Series
We have been using Cisco Aironet Access Points for most of our branch offices. We needed a centrally managed system that is preferably part of our Cisco ecosystem. The main office had different requirements so we didn't use it there. The devices are also looking nice, which is a pro because they can hang in view.
  • Managing centrally is easy
  • Nice looking devices
  • Speed is good
  • Reliability is excellent
  • Price
  • Sometimes a smaller form factor would be nice.
  • Because of the very good reliability and stability, the offices can work continuously, even if the devices seem pricey.
  • Older devices mostly still work.
We have deployed these technologies in more or less the default setup. They contribute to the very good speed, performance, and stability of the wireless network. The Clear Air option seems to work great at reducing interference. Even at peak time, the network is never the problem.
The modular component add-ons for our Cisco AIronets have very much improved over time and keeps it up to date even after a couple of years.
Although it is a good product and could easily fulfill our requirement, we already have a lot of Cisco products made by Aironet for our wireless network. Our trust in our reseller for Cisco equipment was the other reason.
