Features and capabilities

Just because it’s called “the great outdoors” doesn’t mean that you have all the space in the world.

Presenting the Cisco Aironet 1540 Outdoor Access Points (APs). These access points are smaller than comparable APs and are rugged enough to withstand anything Mother Nature throws at it.

It’s not just a tough little AP. The 1540 access point supports the latest 802.11ac Wave 2 radio standard. This means a lightning-fast network for Wave 2-capable mobile devices and support for multiuser MIMO. With MU-MIMO you can transmit data to multiple 802.11ac Wave 2 clients at a time.

The 1540 is flexible too. Not only can the AP be installed in traditional access point and mesh networks, but it can also be deployed through the Cisco Mobility Express solution. For small to medium-sized networks, Cisco Mobility Express offers the ideal deployment because it does not require a controller. Setup and configuration are easy.

More and more people use mobile devices as their primary means to conduct business. Your employees aren’t doing their work only at their desks. You need to make sure that the areas outside your organization have a robust wireless network. You’ll improve both productivity and job satisfaction.

Here are some places where the 1540 access point should be placed:

  • Retail: Help shoppers in open-air malls and parking lots
  • Education: Provide full campus coverage
  • Manufacturing: Support workers, especially those in distribution centers
  • Hospitality: Make sure pools and open spaces are covered
  • Healthcare: Serve patients and staff in recovery gardens and multiple buildings
