Cisco OfficeExtend Solution

Dual-Band 802.11n Performance for the Home Teleworker

Give teleworkers comprehensive access to networked business services with the Cisco OfficeExtend solution. The solution comprises the Cisco Aironet 600 Series Access Point, the Cisco 5500 Series WLAN Controller or Wireless Services Module 2 (WiSM2), and the optional Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS).

Cisco OfficeExtend is the only purpose-built teleworking solution to deliver full 802.11n wireless performance with simultaneous dual-band support, which avoids congestion caused by residential devices.

Unlike overlay solutions, the Cisco solution extends the same borderless network policy and security from the network core to the teleworker.
