Information About XOR Radio
The Cisco Aironet 3800/2800 series access points are one of the 802.11ac Wave 2 supported APs.
In Cisco Aironet 2800/3800 series APs, slot 0 is an XOR radio that can be set up as a 2.4-GHz or 5-GHz or monitor radio. If it is a 2.4- or 5-GHz radio, it should support wireless clients to transmit and receive packets or voice or videos. It is the first time that an XOR radio supports transmission and reception, and behaves as a normal 2.4- or 5-GHz radio.
The Cisco Aironet 2800/3800 series APs with an XOR module supports the following modes:
Radio 0—Is an XOR radio.
Radio 1—Is a dedicated 5-GHz radio.
The Dual-Band (XOR) radio offers the ability to serve either the 2.4- or 5-GHz bands or passively monitor both bands on the same radio.
