Cisco Aironet 1810 Series OfficeExtend Access Points-At a Glance

The CiscoAironet 1810 Series OfficeExtend Access Points offer a highly secure enterprise wireless and wired connection to the home, micro-branch, or other types of remote sites. The 1810 Series extends the corporate network to teleworkers, mobile workers and even micro-sites. The access points connect to the home or site broadband Internet access and establish a highly secure tunnel to the corporate network. This tunnel allows remote employees access to data, voice, video and cloud services for a mobility experience consistent with that at the corporate office. The 1810 Series supports highly secure access to corporate data and personal connectivity for teleworkers’ home devices, with segmented home traffic.

Features and Benefits-Cisco Aironet 1810 Series OfficeExtend APs

Feature Benefit
Dual-radio, dual-band Dual-radio, dual-band 802.11ac Wave 2 access point provides highly secure and reliable wired and wireless connectivity to home or remote offices. This capability provides confidence that data will be secure and allows for two separate tunnels.
802.11ac Wave 2 support Supports the latest Wi-Fi standard, 802.11ac Wave 2 with 2×2 multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology and two spatial streams when operating in single-user or multiuser MIMO (MU-MIMO) mode, offering 867-Mbps rates for more capacity and reliability.
Real-time service extender Extends real-time services such as voice, wireless, video and data to remote locations that have no IT staff. No longer will geography or climate be the reason for lost work hours. Working at home is now like being at the office.
Robust security The Aironet 1810 Series establishes a secure Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) connection between the access point and the controller to offer remote WLAN connectivity, using the same profile as at the corporate office.
Gigabit Ethernet ports Three local Gigabit Ethernet ports are available to securely connect wired devices to the network. Traffic from wired devices can be tunneled back to a wireless LAN controller. One of these ports can also provide Power over Ethernet (PoE) out to power a device such as an IP phone.

All of these features help ensure the best possible end-user experience on the wireless network.

 

Prominent Feature/Differentiator/Capability

The Cisco Aironet 1810 Series OfficeExtend Access Points support the latest 802.11ac Wave 2 standard for higher performance, greater access and higher-density networks. With features such as simultaneous dual radio and dual-band 2×2:2 with 802.11ac Wave 2 and MU-MIMO, the 1810 Series provides the perfect complement of functionalities for a remote worker.

With advanced security, you will never have to worry about your data being compromised while remote workers are working from a home office. A number of fortified security features separate corporate traffic from home traffic, with added firewall protection for home traffic. In addition, up to two ports can be tunneled back to a wireless LAN controller.

The Aironet 1810 Series allows wired access via Power over Ethernet (PoE). This feature provides wired access with PoE out for other devices such as IP phones, security cameras, printers and copiers. In addition to standard PoE, the access points can be powered with an AC adapter. The 1810 Series comes with three local Gigabit Ethernet ports and one uplink Gigabit Ethernet port, allowing for a variety of connections.

The 1810 Series can be configured at the corporate office and shipped for a simple install at the remote office. Whether it is mounted to the wall or resting on a desk, the vertical mounting optimizes wireless coverage with integrated antennas.
