As wireless speeds increase, don't let your switches become a bottleneck. Prepare your access switches for Wi-Fi 6 and 802.11ac Wave 2 with Cisco Multigigabit Technology. It also supports Power over Ethernet (PoE and PoE+), and Cisco Universal Power over Ethernet (Cisco UPOE and UPOE+), so you don't need to install new electrical circuits to power your access points.
Today's business needs seek always-on connectivity, which is driving new wireless standards such as Wi-Fi 6 and 802.11ac Wave 2. But wireless has now exceeded the traditional capacity of wired infrastructure, creating a bottleneck.
Create better user experiences with Wi-Fi 6 and 802.11ac Wave 2 and enjoy up to a fivefold jump in wireless speeds, up to 6.8 Gbps. Cisco Multigigabit Technology delivers speeds beyond 1 Gbps on existing cabling, surpassing previously achievable speeds.
Category 5e cables inside buildings that connect switches to wireless access points are limited to 1-Gigabit speeds. Cisco founded the NBASE-T Alliance (now part of the Ethernet Alliance) in 2014 to make it possible to support up to 10 Gbps over installed Category 5e and 6 cables. Use NBASE-T technology to support Wi-Fi 6 and 802.11ac Wave 2.
Cisco Multigigabit Technology supports PoE, PoE+, UPOE, and UPOE+, so you don't need to install new electrical circuits to power your access points. Only Cisco provides 90 watts of UPOE+ to power downstream devices in next-generation workspaces, including lighting, IP phones, shades, IPTVs, surveillance cameras, and virtual desktop clients.
