The Cisco® WAP2000 Wireless-G Access Point (Figure 1) is ideal for small businesses that want to expand their existing wired networks or create new wireless networks for their workforce or guests. It features RangeBooster technology that is comparable to standard 802.11g but with nearly twice the range and with throughput that is up to 35 percent faster. Unlike ordinary wireless technologies that are hampered by wireless signals that reflect off walls, ceilings, and other objects, RangeBooster uses these multiple signals with two smart receivers at each end (router or access point and client adapter) to boost range and throughput speeds. As a result, a RangeBooster solution reduces or eliminates wireless signal dead spots in offices and other buildings so users can connect to the network in more areas. The Cisco WAP2000 comes with two 3-dBi for increased power, also helping to extend the range of the access point.
Advanced security features such as Wi-Fi Protected Access™ (WPA2) make this solution ideal for your business. Integrated quality of service (QoS) features provide consistent voice and video quality on both the wired and wireless networks, enabling your workforce to communicate or view video content without disruptions and delay.
The Cisco WAP2000 can be powered from the included AC adapter or from a Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch via Ethernet cabling, enabling it to be mounted in ceilings or high on walls where power outlets may not be available.
Additional features like multiple basic service set identifiers (BSSIDs), wireless roaming, and auto-channel selection give your business added flexibility to keep employees and guests connected. The Cisco WAP2000 also features dual firmware images, so it remains functional if a firmware upgrade process is disrupted.
