We hear that the Cisco Aironet 3800 Series is the perfect solution for organizations paving the way for the new 802.11ac Wave 2 standard.
The 3800 Series AP is a hands-off product that’s intelligent enough to make decisions based on end-device activities and usage for large enterprise organizations that rely on Wi-Fi to engage with customers.
Last week, the Cisco Aironet 3802 Access Point was the first 802.11ac Wave 2 AP to be crowned “Wi-Fi Certified” by the Wi-Fi Alliance.
Being Wi-Fi Certified is an important acknowledgement for products that have met industry-agreed upon standards for interoperability, security and a range of application-specific protocols. To become Wi-Fi Certified, the Aironet 3802 Access Point underwent a thorough set of independent testing by Authorized Test Labs. The Aironet 3802 Access Points were tested in numerous configurations with a diverse sampling of other devices.
The Cisco Aironet 3802 Access Point passed with flying colors!
The Cisco Aironet 3802 Access Point reduces data bottlenecks and slow speeds in your network. Cisco is extending the limits of what’s possible in wireless networking with this new access point, which is available today. The Cisco Aironet 3802 Access Point offers: 802.11ac Wave 2 support with Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO), Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Support, Flexible Radio Assignment, Dual 5-GHz support, Smart Antenna Connector and much more.
The Wi-Fi Alliance is a global non-profit industry association whose members are a worldwide network of companies that brings you Wi-Fi. The members of the collaboration forum come from across the Wi-Fi ecosystem and share a common vision of connecting everyone and everything, everywhere. Since 2000, the Wi-Fi certified seal of approval designates products with proven interoperability, industry-standard security protections, and the latest technology.
Aironet 3800 access points help you:
Improve Performance for Multiple Client Devices
The 802.11ac Wave 2 access points use multiuser, multiple input, multiple output (MU-MIMO) technology. This allows different data streams to all flow at once from the access point to multiple 802.11ac Wave 2-supported devices. Now, multiple Wave 2 devices can connect at the same time. And they can get the information they need quicker.
Boost Speed, Save on Cabling
The 3800 Series offers support for multigigabit-Ethernet (mGig), with existing Cat 5e, Cat 6, and 10GBase-T (Cat6A) cabling. NBASE-T helps you increase speed, without the added costs to upgrade your cabling.
Handle High Density Traffic in Real Time
Sometimes your wireless network gets hit hard with unexpected traffic. You need an access point that can automatically adjust.
The 3800 access points offer dual 5-GHz radio support. This doubles the scale of 5-GHz mobile devices, raising the performance of high-density environments.
Using the 3800’s dual radios, Flexible Radio Assignment automatically improves your network, and helps you stay prepared. Flexible Radio Assignment boosts the mobile user experience by automatically detecting when a large number of devices are connected to a network.
Improve Efficiency with Cisco High Density Experience
High Density Experience comes standard, giving the 3800 Series top-of-the-line network efficiency over a large number of wireless clients. The technology uses customized chipsets to target the needs of high-density networks, and is built with best-in-class RF architecture. This gives you a better user experience for high-performance applications.
Other features include:
- Turbo Performance, which maintains speed and provides a consistent user experience, even with many devices running high-bandwidth applications.
- Cisco CleanAir Technology, which labels and disposes of more than 20 different types of interference. This includes non-Wi-Fi interference too.
Improve Flexibility with a Smart Antenna Connector
A second physical antenna connection gives you more network design flexibility in high-density deployments and large open-area coverage.
Examples of this open-area coverage include:
- High-ceiling auditoriums
- Convention centers, arenas, and stadiums
