Low-profile enterprise-class access point with integrated antennas for easy deployment in offices and similar RF environments.

Product Overview

Cisco ® Aironet ® 1130AG Series IEEE 802.11a/b/g access points provide high-capacity, high-security, enterprise-class features in an unobtrusive, office-class design, delivering WLAN access with the lowest total cost of ownership. With high-performing dual IEEE 802.11a and 802.11g radios, the Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series provides a combined capacity of up to 108 Mbps to meet the needs of growing WLANs. Hardware-assisted Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) or temporal key integrity protocol (TKIP) encryption provides uncompromised support for interoperable IEEE 802.11i, Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) or WPA security. The Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series uses radio and network management features for simplified deployment, along with built-in omnidirectional antennas that provide robust and predictable WLAN coverage for offices and similar RF environments. The competitively priced Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series is ready to install and easy to manage, reducing the cost of deployment and ongoing maintenance.
The Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series is available in two versions: unified or autonomous. Unified access points operate with the Lightweight Access Point Protocol (LWAPP) and work in conjunction with Cisco wireless LAN controllers and the Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS). When configured with LWAPP, the Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series can automatically detect the best-available Cisco wireless LAN controller and download appropriate policies and configuration information with no manual intervention. Autonomous access points are based on Cisco IOS ® Software and may optionally operate with the CiscoWorks Wireless LAN Solution Engine (WLSE). Autonomous access points, along with the CiscoWorks WLSE, deliver a core set of features and may be field-upgraded to take advantage of the full benefits of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network as requirements evolve.
The Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series delivers optimal value for offices and similar environments. Built-in antennas provide omnidirectional coverage specifically designed for today's open workspaces. A multipurpose mounting bracket easily secures Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series access points to ceilings and walls. With an unobtrusive design, Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series access points are aesthetically pleasing and blend into their environments. For maximum concealment, the access point may be placed above ceilings or suspended ceilings. The UL 2043 rating of the Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series allows the access point to be placed above ceilings in plenum areas regulated by municipal fire codes. Offered at a competitive price, and optimized for easy installation and operation, the Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series helps organizations attain a lower total cost of ownership.

Applications

In offices and similarly open environments, Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series access points may be installed on the ceiling to provide users with continuous coverage as they roam throughout a facility. In school buildings and similar facilities, the access points may be installed on the ceiling of each room and hallway to provide users with full coverage and high network availability. In areas where a ceiling installation may not be practical such as retail hotspots or similar small facilities, the access points can be mounted simply and securely on walls for complete coverage with minimal installation cost.

Award-Winning Security

The Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series has achieved National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) FIPS 140-2 level 2 validation and is in process for Information Assurance validation under the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) Common Criteria program. The Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series supports 802.11i, Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), WPA2, and numerous Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) types. WPA and WPA2 are the Wi-Fi Alliance certifications for interoperable, standards-based WLAN security. These certifications support IEEE 802.1X for user-based authentication, Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) for WPA encryption, and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) for WPA2 encryption. These certifications help to ensure interoperability between Wi-Fi-certified WLAN devices from different manufacturers.
The Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series hardware-accelerated AES encryption supports enterprise-class, government-grade secure encryption over the WLAN without compromising performance. IEEE 802.1X authentication helps to ensure that only authorized users are allowed on the network. Backward compatibility and support for WPA client devices running TKIP, the RC4 encryption algorithm, is also supported by the Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series.
Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series Access Points operating with LWAPP support Cisco Unified Intrusion Detection System/Intrusion Prevention System (IDS/IPS), a software feature that is part of the Cisco Self-Defending Network and is the industry's first integrated wired and wireless security solution. Cisco Unified IDS/IPS takes a comprehensive approach to security-at the wireless edge, wired edge, WAN edge, and through the data center. When an associated client sends malicious traffic through the Cisco Unified Wireless Network, a Cisco wired IDS device detects the attack and sends shun requests to Cisco wireless LAN controllers, which will then disassociate the client device.
Autonomous or unified Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series Access Points support management frame protection for the authentication of 802.11 management frames by the wireless network infrastructure. This allows the network to detect spoofed frames from access points or malicious users impersonating infrastructure access points. If an access point detects a malicious attack, an incident will be generated by the access point and reports will be gathered on the Cisco wireless LAN controller, Cisco WCS, or CiscoWorks WLSE.

Features and Benefits

Table 1. Features and Benefits of Cisco Aironet 1130AG Series Access Points

Feature

Benefit

Dual 802.11a and 802.11g Radios

• Provides up to 108 Mbps of capacity in a single device for industry-leading capacity and backward compatibility with legacy 802.11b clients.

Supports 15 Nonoverlapping Channels

• Lower potential interference with neighboring access points simplifies deployment
• Fewer transmission errors deliver greater throughput

Industry-Leading Radio Design

• Provides robust signals to long distances
• Mitigates the effects of multipath signal propagation for more consistent coverage

Variable Transmit Power Settings

• Allows access point coverage to be tuned for differing requirements
• Low-dBm setting supports closer spacing of access points in high-density deployments

Integrated Antennas

• Complete system is deployable out of the box without external antennas
