Table 1.             Features and benefits

Feature

Benefits

Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax)

The IEEE 802.11ax emerging standard, also known as High-Efficiency Wireless (HEW) or Wi-Fi 6, builds on 802.11ac. It delivers a better experience in typical environments with more predictable performance for advanced applications such as 4K or 8K video, high-density, high-definition collaboration apps, all-wireless offices, and IoT. Wi-Fi 6 is designed to use both the 2.4-Ghz and 5-GHz bands, unlike the 802.11ac standard.

Cisco RF ASIC

The Cisco RF Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) is a fully integrated Software-Defined Radio (SDR) that can perform advanced RF spectrum analysis and delivers features such as Cisco CleanAir®, Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS), FastLocate*, and Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) detection.

(* Future)

Uplink/downlink OFDMA

OFDMA-based scheduling splits the bandwidth into smaller frequency allocations called Resource Units (RUs), which can be assigned to individual clients in both the downlink and uplink directions to reduce overhead and latency.

Uplink/downlink MU‑MIMO technology

Supporting eight spatial streams, MU-MIMO enables access points to split spatial streams between client devices to maximize throughput.

BSS coloring

Spatial reuse (also known as Basic Service Set [BSS] coloring) allows the access points and their clients to differentiate between BSSs, thus permitting more simultaneous transmissions.

Target Wake Time

A new power-saving mode called Target Wake Time (TWT) allows the client to stay asleep and to wake up only at prescheduled (target) times to exchange data with the access point. This offers significant energy savings for battery-operated devices, up to 3x to 4x the savings achieved by 802.11n and 802.11ac.

Intelligent Capture

Intelligent Capture probes the network and provides Cisco DNA Center with deep analysis. The software can track more than 240 anomalies and instantaneously review all packets on demand, emulating the onsite network administrator. Intelligent Capture allows for more informed decisions on your wireless networks.

Flexible Radio Assignment (FRA) with tri-radio mode

FRA allows the access points to intelligently determine the operating mode of serving radios based on the RF environment and traffic demands. The access points can operate in the following modes:

  Dual radio mode: one 8x8 5 GHz and one 4x4 2.4 GHz. One radio will serve clients on 5 GHz band, while the other serves clients on 2.4 GHz band.
  Tri-radio mode *: dual 4x4 5 GHz and one 4x4 2.4GHz. With two 4x4 5 GHz and one 4x4 2.4 GHz radios (tri-radio) inside the access point, client device capacity can be increased on demand.
  The access point’s default mode is dual radio with 8x8 5 GHz and 4x4 2.4 GHz. It has the ability to split the 8x8 radio into two separate 4x4 5-GHz radios through software, thereby enabling the benefits of FRA while allowing the 2.4-GHz radio to remain active.

Industry first 8x8 external antenna access point with Smart antenna connector

Cisco Catalyst 9130 Series is the first in the industry to provide 8x8 radio architecture with external antennas. An intelligent physical antenna connector is included on the Cisco Catalyst 9130 Series Access Points with an external antenna. This connector provides advanced network design flexibility for high-density and large open-area environments such as auditoriums, convention centers, libraries, cafeterias, and arenas/stadiums.

Cisco Embedded Wireless Controller (EWC)

Embedded Wireless Controller on Catalyst 9130 Access Points is designed for networks of all sizes, including small and medium-sized businesses and distributed enterprises. It provides industry-leading wireless LAN technology without the need for a physical wireless controller.

Multigigabit Ethernet support

Multigigabit Ethernet provides uplink speeds of 5 Gbps and 2.5 Gbps, in addition to 100 Mbps and 1 Gbps. All speeds are supported on Category 5e cabling, as well as 10GBASE-T (IEEE 802.3bz) cabling.

Bluetooth 5

Integrated Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 5 radio enables location-based use cases such as asset tracking, wayfinding or analytics.

Container support for applications

Container support enables edge computing capabilities for IoT applications on the host access point.

Apple features

Apple and Cisco have partnered to create an optimal mobile experience for iOS devices on corporate networks based on Cisco technologies. Using new features in iOS 14, in combination with the latest software and hardware from Cisco, businesses can now more effectively use their network infrastructure to deliver an enhanced user experience across all business applications.

At the center of the collaboration is a unique handshake between the Cisco WLAN and Apple devices. This handshake enables the Cisco WLAN to provide an optimal Wi-Fi roaming experience to Apple devices. Additionally, the Cisco WLAN trusts Apple devices and gives priority treatment for business-critical applications specified by the Apple device. This feature is also known as Fast Lane.

Note:       The following features will be available in a future release: Target Wake Time, BSS coloring, Intelligent Capture, Tri-radio mode, Uplink MU-MIMO, and Container support for applications.

Resilient – steady performance in demanding environments

Network infrastructures that are upgraded to Wi-Fi 6-enabled devices will get up to four times the capacity boost needed to support the additional devices connected to the network as well as the data they generate. Wi-Fi 6 will offer multigigabit performance that will feature seamless connectivity with higher throughput compared to the Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) standard. This means that your network will run more smoothly. With support for BSS coloring, the new standard eases high-density device deployments by allowing simultaneous transmissions, ultimately increasing network capacity, customer interactions, and value-add services. BSS coloring allows the limited channels in the 2.4 GHz band to have better spectral reuse, benefiting IoT and other 2.4 GHz clients.

Wi-Fi 6, with better coordination of transit time to and from devices, will also bring about a reduction in latency and greater reliability, allowing for hundreds of devices per access point. This will enable IoT devices to be reliably deployed at scale. In addition, Wi-Fi 6 will reduce the battery consumption in devices such as smartphones, tablets, and IoT devices when compared to previous standards. For more details about Wi-Fi 6, see Cisco’s technical white paper on Wi-Fi 6.

Secure infrastructure

Trustworthy systems built with Cisco Trust Anchor Technologies provide a highly secure foundation for Cisco products. With the Cisco Catalyst 9100 Access Points, these technologies enable assurance of hardware and software authenticity for supply chain trust and strong defense against man-in-the-middle attacks that compromise software and firmware. Trust Anchor capabilities include:

     Image signing: Cryptographically signed images provide assurance that the firmware, BIOS, and other software components are authentic and unmodified. As the system boots, the system’s software signatures are checked for integrity.

     Secure Boot: Cisco Secure Boot technology anchors the boot sequence chain of trust to immutable hardware, mitigating threats against a system’s foundational state and the software being loaded, regardless of a user’s privilege level. It provides layered protection against illicitly modified firmware.

     Cisco Trust Anchor module: A tamper-resistant, strong cryptographic, single-chip solution uniquely identifies the product so that its origin can be confirmed to Cisco. This provides assurance that the product is genuine.
