The Cisco Aironet AIR-AP2802E-B-K9 Dual-band, controller-based 802.11a/b/g/n/ac access point is one of our best selling APs. This Aironet AP is highly versatile and delivers the most functionality of any access point in the industry. 802.11ac Wave 2 support provides a theoretical connection rate of up to 2.6Gbps per radio. This is roughly double the rate offered by traditional 802.11ac access points.
Cisco’s Best-in-class RF architecture provides high-performance coverage for high density client environments. The 2802E-B-K9 gives the end user a seamless wireless experience, even in dense and congested deployments. Features include custom hardware in 802.11ac Wave 2 radios, Cisco CleanAir, Cisco Client Link 4.0, cross-access point noise reduction, and an optimized client roaming experience.
The ‘E’ in 2802E-B-K9 signifies that this model has external antennas. These antennas provide design flexibility, allowing two sets of antennas to be used on a single access point. This is especially helpful in challenging RF environments, such as convention centers, arenas, and libraries.
