Cisco adds dual band access points
Cisco Systems has introduced the 1130AG and 1230AG to its Aironet line of access points. The APs take full advantage of the dual band capabilities of IEEE 802.11a/b/g client devices while maintaining full backward compatibility with legacy IEEE 802.11b clients, Cisco said. The access points also comply with both the IEEE 802.11i and WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) standards for securing wireless LANs. Targeted to the enterprise market, the APs provide simultaneous support in the 5.0 and 2.4 GHz bands for a combined capacity of up to 108 Mb/s at distances “far surpassing that of previous generation radios,” Cisco said.
