Overview:

Ideal for networks in dense buildings, the Cisco Aironet® 1815m Access Points bring a higher power option and full slate of Cisco® high-performance functions to the enterprise environment.

With more transmit power than the other access points in its family, the Cisco Aironet 1815m Series supports a larger coverage area with fewer access points. In addition, the 1815m delivers industry-leading wireless performance with support for the latest Wi-Fi standard, the IEEE’s new 802.11ac Wave 2 standard. The 1815m Series extends support to a new generation of Wi-Fi clients, such as: smartphones, tablets, and high-performance laptops that have integrated 802.11ac Wave 1 or Wave 2 support.

With the increased coverage area, 802.11ac Wave 2 support, and the functions and features of an enterprise-level access point, the 1815m fully meets the growing requirements of wireless networks by delivering a better user experience (Figure 1).

Features and Benefits:

By adhering to the 802.11ac Wave 2 standard, the 1815m Series provides a data rate of up to 867 Mbps on the 5-GHz radio. This rate exceeds the data rates offered by access points that support the 802.11n standard. It also enables a total aggregate dual-radio data rate of up to 1 Gbps, allowing for the necessary foundation for enterprise and service provider networks to stay ahead of the performance expectations and needs of their wireless users.

In recent years, corporate users have increasingly preferred wireless access as the form of network connectivity because of its convenience. With this shift, there is an expectation that wireless should not slow down users’ day-to-day work, but should enable a high-performance experience. The 1815m Series delivers industry-leading performance with highly secure and reliable wireless connections, providing a robust mobility end-user experience.

Feature

Benefit

Higher Tx power

With more than 3 dB (twice the transmit power) than the 1815i, the 1815m can penetrate walls and doors, making it ideal for deployment in hotels, dorm rooms, or other dense building locations.

MU-MIMO

Multiuser (MU) multiple-input, multiple-output (MU-MIMO) allows simultaneous data transmission of data to multiple 802.11ac Wave 2–capable clients to improve the client experience. Prior to MU-MIMO, 802.11n and 802.11ac Wave 1 access points could transmit data to only one client at a time. This transmission was typically referred to as single-user MIMO (SU-MIMO).

Cisco Mobility Express Solution

Flexible deployment mode through the Mobility Express Solution is ideal for small to medium-sized deployments that require 50 or fewer access points. Easy setup allows deployment of the 1815m Series on networks without a physical controller.

Integrated Bluetooth 4.1

Integrated Bluetooth low-energy (BLE) 4.1 radio will be used for location and asset tracking (future availability).

Prominent Feature, Differentiator, and Capability

  • Increased wireless performance: The Aironet® 1815m Series Access Points support the latest 802.11ac Wave 2 standard for higher performance, greater access, and higher-density networks. With simultaneous dual radios and dual band with 802.11ac Wave 2 MU-MIMO functions, this access point can handle the increasing number of high-bandwidth devices that will soon become a common part of the network.
  • Wired access: The 1815m Series allows wired access through a single RJ-45 10/100/1000 autodetection port. It supports full operation modes using Power over Ethernet (PoE) 802.3af power.
  • Mounting: These sleek access points with a small form factor are designed with flexible mounting options in mind, with support for placement on either ceilings or walls.
