For organizations paving the way for the 802.11ac Wave 2 standard, the Cisco Aironet 2800 Series is the perfect solution. The access points go beyond getting ready for the changing standards, providing the ultimate in flexibility and versatility. For large enterprise organizations that rely on Wi-Fi to engage with customers, the 2800 Series is a hands-off product that's intelligent enough to make decisions based on end-device activities and usage. This automation allows you to devote time to other pressing matters, secure in the knowledge that your Wi-Fi network is performing to its utmost potential. The Aironet 2800 Series is packed with the features and capabilities that have made Cisco the the optimal choice, at a price point that is ideal for managing wireless growth, capacity, and coverage gaps in dense indoor environments.
Provides a theoretical connection rate of up to 2.6 Gbps per radio - roughly double the rates offered by today's high-end 802.11ac access points.
High density experience
Best-in-Class RF Architecture, which provides high performance coverage for a high density of client devices giving the end user a seamless wireless experience. HDX leverages features such as custom hardware in 802.11ac Wave 2 radios, CleanAir, ClientLink 4.0, Cross-access point noise reduction, and an optimized client roaming experience.
Supporting three spatial streams, MU-MIMO enables access points to split spatial streams between client devices, to maximize throughput.
160 MHz channel support
Supporting Channels up to 160 MHz wide, Dynamic Bandwidth Selection allows the access point to dynamically switch between 20, 40, 80, and 160 MHz channels depending on the RF Channel conditions, providing the industry's best performing wireless network.
Cross-access point noise reduction
A Cisco innovation that enables access points to intelligently collaborate in real time about RF conditions so that users connect with optimized signal quality and performance.
Optimized access point roaming
Helps ensure that client devices associate with the access point in their coverage range that offers the fastest data rate available.
Zero Impact Application Visibility and Control
Leverages dedicated hardware acceleration to improve performance of line speed applications such as Application Visibility and Control.
Dual 5 GHz radio support
Enables both radios to operate in 5 GHz client serving mode, allowing an industry leading 5.2 Gbps (2x 2.6 Gbps) over the air speeds while increase client capacity.
Auto LAG support
802.3ad (LACP) compliant allowing both Gigabit Ethernet interfaces to automatically LAG increasing overall throughput to the access point
