Cisco Aironet 1200 Series Access Point

The Cisco Aironet® 1200 Series Access Point (AP) provides the following physical interface connections:

2

Reverse Polarity-Threaded Naval Connector (RP-TNC)

Barrel connector


The mini-PCI interface supports either an 802.11b or 802.11g radio operating in the 2.4 GHz frequency band.The CardBus interface supports an 802.11a radio operating in the 5 GHz frequency band. At least one radio must be installed for the AP to operate in a Wireless LAN, and at most two radios (one of each form factor) can be installed.

The Cisco Aironet 1200 Series may be ordered as follows:

Configurable: identify the AP platform and then select which radio(s) to be installed, or

Preconfigured bundles: AP platform with 802.11a, 802.11b or 802.11g radio module predetermined by the part number or stock-keeping unit (SKU).

Configurable part numbers for the Cisco Aironet 1200 are only available on the Global Price List. The configurable option is best for those who are ordering the product for a specific single customer or project. When choosing the "configurable" option, the AP platform and radio module(s) must be selected. Although the AP platform and radio module(s) are ordered separately through the configuration tool, they will arrive fully assembled as a completely functional end product.

Preconfigured bundles are available on both the Global and Wholesale Price Lists. Preconfigured bundles associate a unique SKU to a predefined product configuration for AP platform and radio module. As with the configurable product, a preconfigured bundle will arrive fully assembled.

For both configurable products and preconfigured bundles, selection of a country power cord is required, and options for in-line power injector and console cable are available through the configuration tool. For those configurable and preconfigured bundles based on Cisco IOS, an additional option is available for selecting the software image version.

2.4 GHz antennas are not included with the 802.11b or 802.11g radio modules in either version; they must be identified under a separate order line item and purchased separately. Note, the 802.11a radio module is designed with its antenna integrated to the radio module, and therefore no antenna selection is required or available.

Product Description

The following table describes each of the parts identified previously.

Cisco Aironet 1200 Series Access Point Platform

The Cisco Aironet 1200 Series access point platform is the basic electronic chassis of the AP. When populated with at least one radio module, the platform then provides the infrastructure for a Wireless LAN.

The platform supports:

Simultaneous, dual-band operations with interfaces for mini-PCI and CardBus radios

Dual RP-TNC connectors for external 2.4 GHz antennas (antennas are sold separately)

10/100 Auto-Sensing Ethernet uplink

Powering from Cisco in-line power over Ethernet (CDP) or local power supply

Console access

The platform ships with a 110-220 VDC local power supply. It is available with either the VxWorks or Cisco IOS operating systems.

Power Injectors

The Cisco Aironet 1200 Series Access Point may be powered with the local power supply included with the access point or by using powering equipment capable of providing Cisco in-line power over Ethernet, such as Cisco Aironet Power Injectors or Cisco in-line powered switches and routers. The powering equipment must be able to support the power requirements of the access point, which depend on the product configuration as follows:

802.11a (single radio)

8 watts

802.11b (single radio)

6 watts

802.11g (single radio)

6 watts

802.11a/b/g (dual radio)

11 watts

The Cisco Aironet Power Injectors listed below provide sufficient power for each possible configuration of the access point.

The power injectors are used in combination with the 110-220 VDC power supply that is shipped with the Cisco Aironet 1200 Series access point platform and preconfigured bundles.

AIR-PWRINJ3

Cisco Aironet Power Injector for the 1100 and 1200 Series access points

RJ-45 Ethernet LAN connection

AIR-PWRINJ-FIB

Cisco Aironet Power Injector Media Converter

MT-RJ (multimode fiber) LAN connection

Console Cable

This optional cable may be used in the initial installation and set-up of the access point.

AIR-CONCAB1200

Auxiliary/Console port cable


When ordering the items listed in the above charts separately from the product, order using the spare part number by appending an equal sign "=" to the part number. For example, order AIR-PWRINJ3= if ordering the Power Injector under a separate order line item.

Regulatory Domains

Regulatory domains are used to distinguish groups of countries that adhere to the same or similar regulations for radio usage with regards to available channels and transmit power. Cisco Aironet radio products are set at the factory to allow a particular channel set and maximum transmit power and are reflected in the part number as the single character following the model number (for example, in AIR-AP1231G-A-K9, the regulatory domain is represented by "-A-". Customers must select the correct regulatory domain that corresponds to their particular country when choosing a radio module for use in their access point or when choosing a preconfigured bundle.

The Cisco Aironet 1200 Series access point is certified for use in many countries around the world, but has not been approved for use in all countries. Please refer to the following URL for current worldwide approval status of the Cisco Aironet 1200: http://www.cisco.com/go/aironet/compliance

1 That the absence of these regulatory domain designators does not necessarily mean that the product is not certified for use in the listed country. Instead a different regulatory domain applies for the country. Please check your country compliance and the applicable regulatory domain designator

Antennas

The 2.4 GHz radios for 802.11b and 802.11g support a flexible set of Cisco Aironet omnidirectional and directional antennas that can be mounted on walls, ceilings or on masts. The 2.4 GHz radio does not come with antennas; the antennas must be ordered separately. Note that the Cisco Aironet 1200 Series access point is certified for operation only with Cisco Aironet antennas. To ensure regulatory compliance, select Cisco Aironet antennas for use with the 1200 Series access point.

The 5 GHz radio for the 802.11a is designed with an integrated diversity antenna system. Auxiliary 5 GHz antennas are not required and are not available. A complete Antenna Reference Guide is available to assist users in selecting the proper antenna for specific deployment requirements: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/wireless/ps469/products_data_sheet09186a008008883b.html

Client Adapters

The Cisco Aironet 1200 Series access point will interoperate with all IEEE 802.11a/b/g (Wi-Fi) WLAN client adapters. To take advantage of the end-to-end features, Cisco innovations and the award-winning Cisco Wireless Security Suite, Cisco recommends that customers use Cisco client adapters or Cisco Compatible clients when possible. For more information, including a complete listing of Cisco Compatible products, refer to the following URL: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partners/pr46/pr147/partners_pgm_partners_0900aecd800a7907.html
