The recent advancement in technology has increased the use of wireless network. Almost all the manufacturers are engineering their gadgets (Laptops, Cell phones, Tablets and iPads etc.) which support wireless connectivity. Keeping in mind the demanding wireless network needs, all the organizations have setup or going to establish WLAN based network in their offices and even in factories. Besides this advancement, there are security risks involved for the organizations and their data base as well. For which they have to establish a secure mechanism on which they can rely and perform effectively.
Being a market leader, Cisco engineered its Aironet 1200 series access points which has set the new standards for high-performance, secure, flexible and manageable LANs (WLANs) network. This series delivers the protection to your investment, versatility and enterprise-class features demanded by WLAN customers. The two connected antennas allow long radius connectivity and rugged metal body supports to operate in broad temperature range.
The Aironet 1200 series provides high performance access point that allows single and dual-radio configuration for up to 54 mbps connectivity in both 2.4 and 5GHZ bands moreover is fully compliant with IEEE 802.11g, 802.11b and 802.11a standards. This series helps to create a unified wireless network that is a comprehensive solution- delivers an integrated, end to end, wireless and wired network.
Cisco has given the advantage to this series by integrating its IOS software for ease of use and familiarity- which is key component of the Cisco Structured Wireless-Aware Network (SWAN). The Cisco Aironet 1200 series is available in unified and autonomous versions. Unified access point operates with the LWAPP (light weight access point protocol) and works collectively with Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS) and Cisco WLAN controllers. Autonomous access points are based on Cisco IOS software and optionally operate with Cisco Works WLAN Solution Engine (WLSE).
The Cisco Aironet 1200 series is engineered with multiple enhanced features and benefits:-
This series is designed with an aim to provide extensive security with the help of AES-CCMP encryption (WPA2), TKIP (WPA), Cisco TKIP and IEEE 802.11 WEP keys of 40 bits and 128 bits. After implementing these security tools, network administrators can enjoy the peace of mind.
The Cisco Aironet 1200 Series provides the opportunity to upgrade firmware and new features as available through its large storage capacity and support for Cisco management tools. Enterprise customers take it as a wise investment while understanding the reliability of 802.11g solution.
The cisco Aironet 1200 series provide the ease of installation on walls and below ceilings with the help of plenum ratable metal case. Aluminum body provides the ruggedness- required in warehouses, factories and in the most challenging environments. This series support inline power over Ethernet and local power maximizes powering option flexibility.
In short, The Cisco Aironet 1200 series in engineered by keeping in view the most demanding current and future wireless network needs while providing the market compliant security standards, which ensures the network security. Enhanced flexibility provides ease of installation and up gradation which protects your investment efficiently and effectively. This series includes AIR-LAP1242G, AIR-AP1250, AIR-LAP1262N and AIR-AP1252AG air products.
