The New Cisco WAP571E Wireless-AC N Premium Dual Radio Outdoor Access Point

Besides the new Cisco WAP571 Wireless-AC N Premium Dual Radio Access Point with PoE, the Cisco WAP571E Wireless-AC N Premium Dual Radio Outdoor Access Point is the other new member of Cisco Small Business 500 Series Wireless Access Points. What are the difference between these new two models? In this article, we will share more details of the new Cisco WAP571E access point and the comparison of WAP571 and WAP571E.

The Cisco WAP571E access point is purpose-built to meet the demands of your outdoor spaces. It offers a rugged housing (IP66 rated), and works even in rain, snow, and extreme high and low temperatures.

The WAP571E access point delivers high-performance Wi-Fi connectivity for outdoor deployments, supporting 802.11ac technology. This access point:

  • Provides 802.11ac outdoor connectivity with speed up to 1.9 Gbps
  • Supports 3×3 multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology with three spatial streams for maximum performance on both 2.4- and 5.0-GHz radios
  • Includes an outdoor-rated IP66 enclosure designed for challenging outdoor environments, and surge protection support
  • Offers dual Gigabit Ethernet LAN with Energy Efficient Ethernet and link aggregation support

WAP571E access points also include Single Point Setup. This controller-less technology simplifies the deployment and management of multiple access points, without requiring additional hardware.

Other features that make management easy include:

  • Simple installation and an intuitive web-based configuration and wizard for setup in minutes
  • Support for Power over Ethernet (PoE) for easy installation without expensive additional wiring
  • Sleek design with multiple internal antennas and a versatile mounting kit for installation on a pole or a wall Workgroup Bridge mode to expand your network by wirelessly connecting to a second Ethernet network
