Product overview

In today’s dynamic business environment, employees are becoming more mobile and collaborative than ever. Businesses are now depending on cloud applications like Office 365 or Gmail. To stay productive, they need reliable, and fast wireless network to access mission critical applications with no delays.

Cisco® WAP571 Wireless-AC/N Premium Dual Radio Access Points provide a simple, cost-effective way to extend highly secure, high-performance mobile networking to your employees and guests, so they can have the best experience to stay connected anywhere in the office. This flexible solution lets you connect dozens of employees, and can scale to accommodate additional users and changing business needs.

The WAP571 Wireless-AC/N Premium Dual Radio Access Point uses concurrent dual-band radio for improved coverage and user capacity. The 3x3 Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) technology with three spatial streams allows the access point to run at maximum performance in both the 5.0-GHz and 2.4-GHz frequency. Gigabit Ethernet LAN interfaces with Power over Ethernet (PoE) facilitates flexible installation and reduces cabling and wiring costs. Intelligent Quality-of-Service (QoS) features let you prioritize bandwidth-sensitive traffic for Voice over IP (VoIP) and video applications.

To provide highly secure guest WiFi access to visitors and other users, WAP571 Wireless-AC/N Premium Dual Radio Access Points support a captive portal with multiple authentication options and the ability to configure rights, roles, and bandwidth. A customized guest login page lets you present a welcome message and access details, and reinforces your brand with company logos. The WAP571 access point also offers support for 3rd party could managed guest WiFi services allowing you to control Internet access for guests and give your customers a better guest WiFi experience.

WAP571 Wireless-AC/N Premium Dual Radio Access Points are easy to set up and use, with intuitive wizard-based configuration to get you up and running in minutes. An attractive design with flexible mounting options allows the access points to smoothly blend into any small-business environment.

To enhance reliability and safeguard sensitive business information, the WAP571 Wireless-AC/N Premium Dual Radio Access Points support both Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) Personal and Enterprise, encoding all your wireless transmissions with powerful encryption. In addition, 802.1X RADIUS authentication helps keep unauthorized users out. The WAP571 access point is now integrated with Cisco Umbrella to protect employee and guest WiFi against web threats such as malware, ransomware and more.

Designed to scale smoothly as your organization grows, the access points feature controller-less Single Point Setup, which simplifies the deployment of multiple access points without additional hardware. With a Wireless-AC/N Premium Dual Radio Access Point, you can extend business-class wireless networking to employees and guests anywhere in the office, with the flexibility to meet new business needs for years to come.
