The Aironet 2800 Series is packed with flexible technology. It gives your wireless network the capability to meet your ever-changing business goals. These best-in-class access points support the cutting-edge 802.11ac Wave 2 standard. They open the way for innovations that will help you meet today's needs and future objectives.

Features and capabilities

Better performance for many client devices
