Information About Cisco Flexible Antenna Port
The presence of multiple antennas on the transmitters and the receivers of access points (APs), results in better performance and reliability of the APs. Multiple antennas improve reception through the selection of stronger signals or a combination of individual signals, at the receiver. You can configure the antenna ports to be used in the APs as either dual-band antennas or as single-band antennas to optimize radio coverage.
Dual-band antenna mode: APs operate in both the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz bandwidth with all the four antennas—A, B, C, and D. An example of a dual-band antenna mode AP is the Cisco Industrial Wireless 3702 AP.
Single-band antenna mode: Among the APs, antennas A and B operate in the 2.4-GHz bandwidth, and the antennas C and D operate in the 5-GHz bandwidth. An example of a single-band antenna mode AP is the Cisco Catalyst Industrial Wireless 6300 AP.
