Product Migration Options

The AIR-RM20A-x-K9 is the radio module that provides the WLAN functionality within the AIR-AP1220A-x-K9 and AIR-AP1230A-x-K9 bundled access point product. The recommended replacement for the Cisco AIR-RM20A-x-K9 is the AIR-RM21A-x-K9. Additionally customers who desire greater antenna flexibility for their 802.11a WLAN can also select the AIR-RM22A-x-K9 which does require antennas that must be ordered separately. Similarly, the recommended replacement part for the AIR-AP1220A-x-K9 or AIR-AP1230A-x-K9 is to replace the 802.11a radio module with the new AIR-RM21A-x-K9 upgrade kit, and the AIR-RM22A-x-K9 upgrade kit is also available to customers who demand the added flexibility provided by external antennas. For new access point purchases, a 1200 Series Access Point which is a modular platform can be ordered as a chassis (AIR-AP1210) and then configured with the AIR-RM21A-x-K9 module within the ordering tool. There is not a preconfigured 802.11a bundled SKU which includes the AIR-RM21A-x-K9 (Table 3). Briefly the new 802.11a upgrade kits provide a superset of functionality to the products they replace. These new upgrade kits provide enhanced performance and flexibility. The AIR-RM21A-x-k9 has an integrated antenna like the product it succeeds. Additionally, the new upgrade kits are available in a module (AIR-RM22A-x-K9) that has antenna connector where the required Cisco Aironet 5 GHz 802.11a antennas are sold separately.
