Powerful 802.11n Dual-Radio Performance

The Cisco® Aironet® 600 Series OfficeExtend Access Points provide highly secure enterprise wireless coverage to the home. These dual‑band, 802.11n access points extend the corporate network to home teleworkers and mobile contractors. The access point connects to the home’s broadband Internet access and establishes a highly secure tunnel to the corporate network so that remote employees can access data, voice, video, and cloud services for a mobility experience consistent with that at the corporate office. The dual-band, simultaneous support for 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radio frequencies helps assure that corporate devices are not affected by congestion caused by common household devices that use the 2.4‑GHz band. The Cisco Aironet 600 Series OfficeExtend Access Points are purposely designed for the teleworker by supporting secure corporate data access and maintaining connectivity for personal home devices with segmented home traffic.

How It Works

The same services that are available on the wireless network at the corporate office are securely accessed through the Cisco Aironet 600 Series from a remote location. Data, voice, and video as well as applications such as Cisco Unified MeetingPlace® conferencing, Cisco WebEx® technology, and dual-mode phones are supported by the Cisco Aironet 600 Series.

For the initial setup at a home office, the remote worker plugs the access point into a home router connected to or integrated with their broadband modem. The Cisco Aironet 600 Series access point is provisioned in advance and will automatically set up a secure tunnel to the corporate headquarters with a Cisco wireless controller. Apreregistered corporate IP phone can also automatically connect with Cisco Unified Communications Manager to access the corporate phone number, voicemail, and user settings.

How the Remote Workforce Benefits

The Cisco Aironet 600 Series helps improve workforce productivity, business resiliency, and work schedule flexibility while reducing travel costs and carbon emissions. It is targeted toward commercial, enterprise, and service provider networks across all industries. The Cisco Aironet 600 Series is appropriate for employees who need reliable and consistent access to networked business services at home or at work, as well as telecommuters who require the same wireless connectivity as at the corporate site. Voice costs are reduced, since users can use Wi-Fi instead of cellular coverage for voice calls.

Table 1 lists the features and benefits of the Cisco Aironet 600 Series OfficeExtend Access Points.

Table 1. Features and Benefits

Feature

Benefits

Performance

Dual-radio, dual-band, 802.11n access point for the home that provides highly secure, reliable wired and wireless connectivity to home or remote offices.
Supports both the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radio frequency band simultaneously, allowing users to avoid congestion from home devices.

Simplified operations and management

Extends real-time services such as voice, wireless, video, and data to remote locations that have no IT staff.
Management is similar to that of the corporate wireless LAN, using the same infrastructure and devices (Cisco wireless controllers, Cisco Prime Infrastructure, and Cisco Aironet access points).
Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phones may be preconfigured or added in the future.

Robust security

The Cisco Aironet 600 Series establishes a secure Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) connection between the access point and the controller to offer remote WLAN connectivity, using the same profile as at the corporate office.
Secure tunneling mitigates risks of viruses and attacks on the corporate network found in split-tunneling scenarios.
Segmentation of home and corporate traffic maintains home-device connectivity without introducing security risks to corporate policy.

End-to-end voice services

Supports unified communications for improved collaboration through messaging, presence, and conferencing.
Supports all Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phones for cost-effective, real-time voice services.

Environmentally responsible

Enables best practices for green initiatives by reducing commuting hours and emissions.
