Cisco Aironet AP1030 lightweight access point is specifically designed for operation with Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers and the Wireless Control System management tool. It provides dual band support for both 802.11a, 802.11b and 802.11g, simultaneous air monitoring for dynamic, real time RF management. In addition it handles time-sensitive functions, such as Layer 2 encryption, that enable Cisco wireless LANs to securely support voice, video, and data applications.
The AP1030 features both integrated sector antennas and an RP-TNC connector for external antennas and an expanded set of software features designed for a variety of specific applications. Remote Edge Access Point (REAP) capabilities allow the AP1030 to be deployed remotely from the wireless LAN controller making it ideal for branch office and small retail locations. The AP1030 delivers the same LAN security, performance, and RF management capabilities and can operate via most standard WAN technologies, including T1, Frame Relay, ATM, DSL, ISDN, and switched 56k. These capabilities enable IT managers to centrally control SSIDs, security parameters, and software loads for unified, enterprise wide wireless LAN services.
