Flexible Wireless 802.11ac Access Point Connectivity Solution

featureIdeal for small and medium-sized networks, the Cisco® Aironet® 1850 Series delivers industry-leading performance for enterprise and service provider markets via enterprise-class 4x4 MIMO, four-spatial-stream access points that support the IEEE’s new 802.11ac Wave 2 specification.

The Aironet 1850 Series extends support to a new generation of Wi-Fi clients, such as smartphones, tablets, and high-performance laptops that have integrated 802.11ac Wave 1 or Wave 2 support.

This Cisco Aironet 1852I series access point is an 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (Wave 2) access point, using internal antennas. The access point can be mounted on a wall or a ceiling, and supports 2.4 GHz 3x3 802.11 b/g/n MIMO and 5GHz 3x3 802.11 a/n/ac (Wave 2) MIMO applications for multiple users on different devices simultaneously.


Gigabit Wi-Fi Has Fully Arrived

With 802.11ac Wave 2, the Aironet 1850 Series provides a data rate of up to 1.7 Gbps on the 5-GHz radio, more than triple the rates offered by today’s high-end 802.11n access points.

This also enables a total aggregate dual-radio data rate of 2.0 Gbps, providing the necessary foundation for enterprise and service provider networks to stay ahead of the performance and bandwidth expectations and needs of their wireless users.

Due to its convenience, wireless access is increasingly the preferred form of network connectivity for corporate users. Along with this shift, there is an expectation that wireless should not slow down users’ day-to-day work, but should enable a high-performance experience while allowing users to move freely.

The 1850 Series delivers industry-leading performance for highly secure and reliable wireless connections and provides a robust mobility experience that includes:

  • 802.11ac Wave 2 with 4x4 multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology with four spatial streams when operating in single-user MIMO mode and three spatial streams while operating in multiuser MIMO mode, offering 1.7-Gbps rates for more capacity and reliability than competing access points
  • Multiuser MIMO, allowing transmission of data to multiple 802.11ac Wave 2 capable clients simultaneously to improve client experience. Prior to multiuser MIMO, 802.11n and 802.11ac Wave 1 access points could transmit data to only one client at a time, typically referred to as single-user MIMO
  • Transmit beamforming technology to improve downlink performance to mobile devices, including 1, 2 and 3 Spatial Stream devices on 802.11ac, while improving battery life on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets
  • Flexible deployment mode through the Cisco Mobility Express Solution is ideal for small to medium-sized deployments that require 25 or fewer access points. Easy setup allows the 1850 Series to be deployed on networks without a physical controller
