Overview:

The entry-level Cisco Aironet 1700 Series Access Points take advantage of the latest 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology. Designed to meet the growing needs of today’s small and medium-sized, wireless, enterprise networks, the Aironet 1700 Series Access Point offer the right value to help customers ease into 802.11ac networking.

If you operate a small or medium-sized enterprise network, deploy the Cisco Aironet 1700 Access Point for the latest 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology at an attractive price. The Aironet 1700 Series meets the growing requirements of wireless networks by delivering better performance than 802.11n and providing key RF management features for improved wireless experiences.

The 1700 series supports 802.11ac Wave 1 standard capabilities. That includes a theoretical connection rate of up to 867 Mbps. The added throughput lets you stay ahead of growing bandwidth requirements as:

  • More wireless clients associate with the network
  • Users tap into bandwidth-heavy multimedia applications
  • Mobile workers increasingly use multiple Wi-Fi devices
