- Cisco CleanAir technology: Integrated spectrum intelligence to detect, classify, and mitigate RF interference from unauthorized wireless bridges or malicious devices.
- High-bandwidth video surveillance over Wi-Fi without the high cost of installing cables over long distances.
- High-performance, multipurpose network with low CapEx and OpEx.
- Integrated wired and wireless: The Cisco Borderless Networks Architecture provides cost savings with end-to-end network access solutions that include wireless, switching, routing, and security.
Flexible, High-Performance Mesh
The Cisco Aironet 1550 Series Outdoor Access Point offers a flexible, secure, and scalable mesh platform that is part of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network and the Cisco Service Provider Wi-Fi solution. It offers high performance mobility across large metropolitan-sized areas and enterprise campuses, manufacturing yards, and mining pits. Carrier-grade design allows service providers to take advantage of Wi-Fi for next-generation mobile data offloads. The Cisco Aironet 1550 Series provides high-performance device access through improved radio sensitivity and range with 802.11a/b/g/n multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology, with two spatial streams. Multiple uplink and power options are available. The 802.3af-compliant, Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) interface makes it easy to connect IP devices, such as IP video cameras. NEMA Type 4X enclosures help ensure a robust system that can withstand demanding environments. To help ensure uptime for mission-critical applications even in the event that electrical power becomes unavailable, the Cisco Aironet 1550 Series offers an internal battery for backup power.
Cisco CleanAir Technology
The Cisco Aironet 1550 Series with Cisco CleanAir technology provides the highest-performance 802.11n connectivity for mission-critical outdoor networks by detecting interference from unauthorized devices, as well as common outdoor interference sources such as WiMAX networks and wireless bridging products. The 1550 Series uses chip-level intelligence to create a spectrum-aware, self-healing, and self-optimizing wireless network that mitigates the impact of wireless interference. CleanAir is a systemwide feature of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network that improves wireless network quality by detecting RF interference that other systems can't recognize, identifying the source, locating it, and then making automatic adjustments to optimize wireless coverage.
Building on the Cisco Aironet heritage of RF excellence, the Cisco Aironet 1550 Series delivers industry-leading performance for secure and reliable wireless connections. Industrial-grade parts, enterprise-class silicon-level intelligence, and optimized radios deliver a robust mobility experience. The Cisco Aironet 1550 Series provides a set of tools that deliver the robust, scalable wireless foundation required to realize the true potential of outdoor wireless mobility:
- Cisco ClientLink technology to raise uplink and downlink performance of and coverage to existing 802.11a/g clients
- Radio resource management (RRM) for automated channel selection and power setting management of access points
- Advanced capabilities to select data rates, adjust power, and manage quality of service (QoS) for access points
Centrally Managed Mesh Network
Central management and troubleshooting of the Cisco outdoor wireless access points prevent costly maintenance service calls to outdoor locations, The Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS) works in conjunction with the Cisco Aironet Access Points and Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers to configure and manage the wireless networks. With Cisco WCS, network administrators have a single solution for RF prediction, policy provisioning, network optimization, troubleshooting, security monitoring, and wireless LAN systems management. Cisco CleanAir technology is integrated into the WCS to provide real-time information on your outdoor network. Wireless network security is also a part of a unified wired and wireless solution. Cisco wireless network security offers the highest level of network security, which helps ensure that data remains private and secure and that the network is protected from unauthorized access.
