Features and Benefits:

Features Benefits
Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) The IEEE 802.11ax emerging standard, also known as High-Efficiency-Wireless (HEW) or Wi-Fi 6, builds on 802.11ac. It delivers a better experience in typical environments with more predictable performance for advanced applications such as 4K or 8K video, high-density, high-definition collaboration apps, all-wireless offices, and IoT. Wi-Fi 6 is designed to use both the 2.4-Ghz and 5-GHz bands, unlike the 802.11ac standard.
Cisco RF ASIC Cisco RF ASIC is a fully integrated Software Defined Radio (SDR) that can perform advanced RF spectrum analysis and delivers features like CleanAir, Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS), Fast Locate*, DFS detection. (* - Future)
Uplink/downlink OFDMA OFDMA-based scheduling splits the bandwidth into smaller chunks called resource units (RUs), which can be allocated to individual clients in both the downlink and uplink directions to reduce overhead and latency.
MU‑MIMO technology Supporting eight spatial streams, MU-MIMO enables access points to split spatial streams between client devices, to maximize throughput.
BSS coloring Spatial reuse (also known as Basic Service Set [BSS] coloring) allows the access points and their clients to differentiate between BSSs, thus permitting more simultaneous transmissions.
Target wake time A new power savings mode called Target Wake Time (TWT) allows the client to stay asleep and to wake up only at prescheduled (target) times to exchange data with the AP. This offers significant energy savings for battery-operated devices, up to 3x to 4x compared to 802.11n and 802.11ac.
Intelligent Capture Allows the access points to intelligently determine the operating mode of serving radios based on the RF environment. The access points can operate in the following modes:
  • 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz mode: One radio will serve clients in 2.4-GHz mode, while the other serves clients in 5-GHz mode.
  • Dual 5-GHz mode: Both radios inside the access point operate on the 5-GHz band, maximizing the benefits of Wi-Fi 6 and increasing client device capacity.
Dual 5-GHz radio support Enables both radios to operate in 5-GHz client serving mode, allowing an industry-leading 5.2 Gbps (2 x 2.6 Gbps) over-the-air speeds while increasing client capacity.
Smart antenna connector An intelligent second physical antenna connector is included on Catalyst 9120 Access Points with an external antenna. This connector provides advanced network design flexibility for high-density and large open-area environments such as auditoriums, convention centers, libraries, cafeterias, and arenas/stadiums, allowing two sets of antennas to be connected and active on a single access point.
Cisco Mobility Express Mobility Express is designed for networks of all sizes, including small and medium-sized businesses and distributed enterprises. It provides industry-leading wireless LAN technology without the need for a physical controller or additional licenses.
Multigigabit Ethernet support Provides uplink speeds of 2.5 Gbps, in addition to 100 Mbps and 1 Gbps. All speeds are supported on Category 5e cabling for an industry first, as well as 10GBASE-T (IEEE 802.3bz) cabling.
Bluetooth 5.0 Integrated Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 5.0 radio to enable IoT use cases such as location tracking and wayfinding
Container support for applications Enables edge computing capabilities for IoT applications on the host access point.
Apple Features

Apple and Cisco have partnered to create an optimal mobile experience for iOS devices on corporate networks based on Cisco technologies. Using new features in iOS 10, in combination with the latest software and hardware from Cisco, businesses can now more effectively use their network infrastructure to deliver an enhanced user experience across all business applications.

At the center of the collaboration is a unique handshake between the Cisco WLAN and Apple devices. This handshake enables the Cisco WLAN to provide an optimal Wi-Fi roaming experience to Apple devices. Additionally, the Cisco WLAN trusts Apple devices and gives priority treatment for business-critical applications specified by the Apple device. This feature is also known as Fast Lane.

Resilient - Steady Performance in Demanding Environments

Networks infrastructure that upgrade to Wi-Fi 6 enabled devices will get up to four times the capacity boost needed to support the additional devices connected to the network as well as the data that they generate. Wi-Fi 6 will offer multi-gigabit performance which will feature a seamless connectivity with higher throughput compared to the 802.11ac standard. This means you’ll see your network performance run smoother. With support for BSS coloring, the new standard eases high device dense deployments by allowing simultaneous transmissions, ultimately increasing network capacity, customer interactions, and value-add services. BSS coloring allows the limited channels in the 2.4 GHz to have better spectral re-use benefiting IoT and 2.4 GHz clients.

Wi-Fi 6, with better coordination of transit time to and from devices, will also bring about a reduction in latency and a greater reliability allowing for hundreds of devices per access point. This allows for IoT devices to be reliably deployed at scale. And an overall improved user experience will be seen as well, as Wi-Fi 6 will improve device battery life of devices such as smartphones, tablets and IoT when compared to prior standards.

Secure Infrastructure

Trustworthy systems built with Cisco Trust Anchor Technologies provide a highly secure foundation for Cisco products. With The Catalyst 9100 Series, these technologies enable hardware and software authenticity assurance for supply chain trust and strong mitigation against man-in-the-middle attacks that compromise software and firmware. Trust Anchor capabilities include:

  • Image signing: Cryptographically signed images provide assurance that the firmware, BIOS, and other software are authentic and unmodified. As the system boots, the system’s software signatures are checked for integrity.
  • Secure Boot: Cisco Secure Boot technology anchors the boot sequence chain of trust to immutable hardware, mitigating threats against a system’s foundational state and the software that is to be loaded, regardless of a user’s privilege level. It provides layered protection against the persistence of illicitly modified firmware.
  • Cisco Trust Anchor module: A tamper-resistant, strong cryptographic, single-chip solution provides hardware authenticity assurance to uniquely identify the product so that its origin can be confirmed to Cisco. This provides assurance that the product is genuine.

Aesthetically Redesigned for Next Generation Enterprise

The Catalyst 9100 series access points are built from the ground-up, with new aerodynamic look and smooth finish, integrating RF excellence and next generation technologies to provide the best-in-class wireless experience without compromise. While packing several high performance features, the hardware is re-designed to deliver higher efficiencies in a more compact form-factor to make visually appealing Wi-Fi deployments commonplace.

Licensing and Software Packaging:

The Cisco Catalyst 9100 Series requires mandatory Smart Licensing. This provides ease of use for Cisco DNA license management, consumption, and tracking. The Cisco Catalyst 9100 Series uses packaging that includes vastly simplified base network packages (Network Essentials and Network Advantage) and term-based software packages (Cisco DNA Essentials, Cisco DNA Advantage) as add-ons. The Cisco DNA packages, in addition to on-box capabilities, also unlock additional functionality in Cisco DNA Center, enabling controller-based software-defined automation and assurance in your network.

The Cisco Catalyst 9100 Series can support 3 types of Cisco DNA license: Cisco DNA Essentials, Cisco DNA Advantage and Cisco DNA Premier. The Cisco DNA licenses provide Cisco innovations on the AP. The Cisco DNA license also includes the Network Essentials and Network Advantage licensing options which cover wireless fundamentals such as 802.1x authentication, QoS, PnP etc, telemetry and visibility, SSO, as well as security controls. These Network essentials and Network advantage components are perpetual and is valid till the life of the AP. Cisco DNA subscription licenses have to be purchased for a 3-, 5-, or 7-year subscription term. However, upon expiry of Cisco DNA license, Cisco DNA features will expire, whereas network essentials and network advantage features will remain.
