AIR-AP1815i-x-K9: Dual-band, controller-based 802.11a/g/n/ac, Wave 2 The Cisco Aironet 1815i delivers industry-leading wireless performance with support for the latest Wi-Fi standard, IEEE’s 802.11ac Wave 2 (Figure 1). It also meets the growing requirements of wireless networks by delivering a better user experience. The 1815i 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. By adhering to the 802.11ac Wave 2 standard, the 1815i offers a data rate of up to 867 Mbps on the 5-GHz radio. This exceeds the data rates offered by access points that support the 802.11n standard. It also enables a total aggregate dual-radio data rate of up to 1 Gbps. This provides the necessary foundation for enterprise and service provider networks to stay ahead of the performance expectations and needs of their wireless users. Due to its convenience, in recent years corporate users have increasingly preferred wireless access as the form of network connectivity. 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 1815i delivers industry-leading performance for highly secure and reliable wireless connections and provides a robust mobility end-user experience. Table 1 lists the features and benefits of the 1815i.
