Overview:

Access points for fast, reliable Wi-Fi performance

The Cisco Business 240AC Access Point delivers an ideal blend of predictable performance in a compact form. Incorporating 802.11ac Wave 2 features, this platform is ideal for small-to-midsize enterprise deployments.

Ideal for small and medium-sized networks, the Cisco Business 240AC Access Point delivers industry-leading performance for enterprise-class 4x4 Multi-user Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MU-MIMO), four spatial stream access points that support the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) 802.11ac Wave 2 standard. The Cisco Business 240AC Access Point 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.

Enjoy improved experience and superior Wi-Fi performance from 802.11ac Wave 2 with multiuser multiple-input, multiple-output (MU-MIMO) functionality.


Enhanced coverage

Experience fast and reliable Wi-Fi connectivity across your business. Expand your coverage with additional Cisco Business wireless access points and mesh extenders.


Security

Application Visibility and Control (AVC) and Cisco Umbrella provide pervasive security and control to help safeguard your customers' privacy.


Simplicity

An intuitive web dashboard and the Cisco Business Mobile app help simplify network operations, thereby freeing up valuable time and resources for growth and profitability.




Cisco Business Mobile app

Intuitive and easy to use, the Cisco Business Mobile app simplifies network setup, management, and monitoring of Cisco Business Wireless access points and mesh extenders.


Features and Benefits:


Feature Benefit
802.11ac Wave 1 and 2 capabilities with MU‑MIMO technology The IEEE 802.11ac standard delivers improved experience in typical environments, and more predictable performance for advanced applications such as 4K or 8K video, high-density high-definition collaboration apps, all-wireless offices, and Internet of Things (IoT). Supporting four spatial streams, MU-MIMO enables access points to split spatial streams between client devices, to maximize throughput.
Simplified management Deploy and configure multiple Cisco Business access points and mesh extenders easily without a physical controller, using Cisco Business Mobile app . Optional multisite remote management is available through the Cisco FindIT Network Management.
Mesh technology support Mix and match Cisco Business mesh extenders or access points to increase WiFi coverage throughout your business.
Flexible deployment Flexible deployment models supporting multiple concurrent use cases required by small businesses, including point of sale systems, surveillance cameras, guest access, and more.

Prominent Feature

Cisco Business Mobile app

The Cisco Business 240AC Access Point is managed by the Cisco Business Mobile app, an intuitive client application that simplifies traditional challenges associated with wireless network deployment, right from your mobile device. You can extend your network by adding new mesh extenders and automating wireless network activation in minutes. A robust management capability dynamically changes network configuration such as enabling guest access. Network usage, traffic patterns, and network throughput can be closely monitored, providing a real-time snapshot; this not only provides peace of mind, it virtually ensures optimal user experience. The Cisco Business Mobile app is available for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.
