Cisco Aironet 1562
The Cisco Aironet 1560 series of 802.11ac Wave 2 Access Points are an excellent value in outdoor WiFi access, with a variety of models to choose from to fit your business needs. The 1560 series balances price vs power, while still offering the high standards of reliability and signal quality which Cisco is known for, making them an excellent investment for a wide range of organizations from large to small.
The 1560 series are specifically ruggedized and manufactured to continue providing service even in challenging climate or weather environments. They offer speeds up to 1.3Gbps, utilizing MU-MIMO antenna arrays for superior connectivity and roaming even in areas with high radio wave densities. Both Gigabit Ethernet and SFP ports give you flexibility in deployment and upstream connectivity.
1560-series APs are still designed for ease of use and simple deployment. (Possible future feature: They support Cisco Mobility Express software controllers, allowing rapid rollout of a new network without the need for a separate hardware controller.) In addition, they deploy multiple layers of high-grade security to protect both your business and users in day-to-day usage.
There are three models with different feature sets:
- 1562i: The 1562i offers the highest aggregate speeds, with a 3x3 antenna array and internal semi-omnidirectional antennas. This fits the widest variety of usage scenarios.
- 1562e: The 1562e features four external smart antenna ports in a 2x2 array allowing users to fine-tune their deployment with precisely-aimed directional coverage. (Antennas sold separately.)
- 1562d: The 1562d has a 2x2 array of internal directional antennas, intended specifically for cases where you need point-to-point connection sharing in situations where physical wiring is impractical.
The 1560 series of Aironet WiFi APs are a superior solution to most outdoor WiFi access needs. Contact Hummingbird Networks today for a full consultation on your options in Cisco WiFi networking.
