The Cisco Catalyst 9124AX Series Access Points are the most versatile next generation access point in enterprise grade. They are resilient, secure, and intelligent.
With the emergence of high-density networks and the Internet of Things (IoT), we are more dependent on wireless networks than ever before. An increasing number of devices connect to the network every year, ranging from high-performance client devices to low-bandwidth IoT devices. The Cisco® Catalyst® 9124AX Series outdoor access points provide a seamless experience, with high scaling and unmatched performance in diverse network deployments. Going beyond the Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard, the Catalyst 9124AX Series provides integrated security, resiliency, and operational flexibility as well as increased network intelligence.
The Catalyst 9124AX Series offers flexible deployment options for service providers and enterprise networks that need the fastest links possible for mobile, outdoor clients (smartphones, tablets, and laptops), and wireless backhaul. With options for internal or external antennas, the 9124AX Series gives network operators the flexibility to balance their desired wireless coverage with their need for easy deployment.
The Catalyst 9124AX Series access points, paired with the Cisco Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA), are enterprise-class products that will address both your current and future needs. They are the first step in updating your network to take better advantage of all of the features and benefits that Wi-Fi 6 provides.
- Three radios: 2.4 GHz (4x4), 5 GHz (4x4), Cisco RF ASIC, and BLE/IoT
- Rugged outdoor durability
Features and 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.|
|Uplink/downlink OFDMA||Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA)-based scheduling splits the bandwidth into smaller frequency allocations called Resource Units (RUs), which can be assigned to individual clients in both the downlink and uplink directions to reduce overhead and latency.|
|Uplink/downlink MU‑MIMO technology||Supporting two spatial streams, multiuser multiple-input multiple-output (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-saving 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 access point. This offers significant energy savings for battery-operated devices, up to three to four times the savings achieved by 802.11n and 802.11ac.|
|Cisco RF ASIC||Cisco RF ASIC is a fully integrated Software-Defined Radio (SDR) that can perform advanced RF spectrum analysis and delivers features such as Cisco CleanAir, Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (wIPS), FastLocate, and Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS).|
|Bluetooth 5||Integrated Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 5 radio enables location-based use cases such as asset tracking, wayfinding, and analytics.|
|Multigigabit Ethernet support||Provides uplink speeds of 2.5G, 1G, and 100M. All speeds are supported on Category 5e cabling for an industry first, as well as 10GBASE-T (IEEE 802.3bz) cabling.|
Trustworthy systems built with Cisco Trust Anchor Technologies provide a highly secure foundation for Cisco products. With the Cisco Catalyst 9100 Access Points, these technologies enable assurance of hardware and software authenticity for supply chain trust and strong defense against man-in-the-middle attacks that compromise software and firmware. Trust Anchor capabilities include:
- Image signing
- Secure Boot
- Cisco Trust Anchor module
Cisco DNA support

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.
