As the industry’s highest-performing outdoor access point, Cisco Aironet 1570 Series is the only one to date that supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi with 4×4 MIMO true beamforming smart antenna technology with three spatial streams. It is ideal for both enterprise and carrier-class network operators looking to extend Wi-Fi coverage outdoors.
The Aironet 1570 provides higher throughput over a larger area with more pervasive coverage. The AP is also well suited to high-density environments where many users in close proximity generate RF interference that needs to be managed. Examples of environments that can benefit from the Aironet 1570 Series:
- Outdoor enterprise campuses
- Outdoor university and school campuses
- Public venues: stadiums, train stations, airports
- Service provider networks: Wi-Fi offload for mobile, fixed-line, and cable operators
- Mining operations
- Manufacturing yards
- Large metropolitan areas
The Cisco 1570 builds and expands on the successful 1550 series legacy of being the Wi-Fi outdoor AP of choice by service providers needing carrier-grade, ruggedized devices that are easy to deploy and maintain.

The Aironet 1570 Product Models and Antenna Options
The Cisco Aironet 1570 Series offers three model types: 1572EAC, 1572IC, and 1572EC.
More details about the three Aironet 1570 Models
1572EAC—E: External antenna; AC: AC power. It uses Cisco Flexible Antenna Port technology. It has four (4) N-type female external antenna connectors that can be configured as a 2.4/5 GHz dual-band port or two (2) 2.4 GHz plus two (2)5-GHz ports. The antenna options include single or dual-band and omnidirectional or directional.
1572IC—I: Internal antenna; C: Cable backhaul/power-over-cable. It combines four (4) dual-band, integrated antennas under a common radome. These antennas are omnidirectional with associated gains of 4 dBi and 6 dBi on the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, respectively.
1572EC—E: External antenna; C: Cable backhaul/power-over-cable. It uses Cisco Flexible Antenna Port technology. It has four (4) N-type female external antenna connectors that can be configured as a 2.4/5 GHz dual-band port or two (2) 2.4 GHz plus two (2)5-GHz ports. The antenna options include single or dual-band and omnidirectional or directional.
