Cisco Aironet 1250 Series Access Point Hardware View



The Cisco ® Aironet ® 1250 Series is the first enterprise-class access point to support the IEEE 802.11n draft 2.0 standard. 802.11n offers combined data rates of up to 600 Mbps to provide users with mobile access to high-bandwidth data, voice, and video applications regardless of their location. Through the use of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology, 802.11n also provides reliable and predictable WLAN coverage to improve the end-user experience for both existing 802.11a/b/g clients and new 802.11n clients.




The robust Cisco Aironet ® 1250 Series Access Point (Figure 1) is a modular platform designed to be easily field-upgradeable to support a variety of wireless capabilities. This modularity allows businesses to deploy existing wireless technologies today with the confidence that their network investment will extend to support emerging and future wireless technologies.




The platform was specifically engineered to support the power, throughput, and mechanical requirements of higher-speed WLAN technologies, including 802.11n. Currently, the platform provides both 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz modules compliant with the IEEE 802.11n draft 2.0 standard. As technology evolves, the platform is flexible to support future radio modules designed to deliver intelligent RF services, further enhancing the performance and reliability of the wireless network. The Cisco Aironet 1250 Series is a rugged indoor access point designed for both office and challenging RF environments such as factories, warehouses, hospitals and large retail establishments that require the antenna versatility associated with connectorized antennas, a rugged metal enclosure, and a broad operating temperature range. With a Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000) interface, the Cisco Aironet 1250 Series delivers line-rate throughput for higher-speed WLAN technologies such as 802.11n. The access point offers the flexibility of inline as well as local power options.
