Features and benefits

Compact size

Compact size

Enables deployment of the access point where it's needed. The 1540 Series easily mounts to walls or light poles without disturbing the aesthetics of the area.

802.11ac Wave 2 radio

802.11ac Wave 2 radio

Provides up to 867-Mbps data rates with 2 x 2 multiuser multiple-input, multiple-output (MU-MIMO) with up to two spatial streams.

Multiuser MIMO (MU-MIMO)

Multiuser MIMO (MU-MIMO)

Allows transmission of data to multiple 802.11ac Wave 2-capable clients simultaneously to improve client experience. Previously, access points could transmit data to only one client at a time, typically referred to as single-user MIMO.

Flexible deployment modes

Flexible deployment modes

Allows for deployment in a variety of ways, including as traditional access points and in mesh networks. The access points can also be deployed with the Cisco Mobility Express Solution. This deployment is ideal for small to medium-sized networks that that require 50 or fewer access points without a physical controller. All deployment modes are easy to set up and configure.
