Cisco® Aironet® 1240AG Series Access Points deliver the versatility, high capacity, security, and enterprise-class features demanded by WLAN customers. These IEEE 802.11a/b/g access points are designed specifically for challenging RF environments such as factories, warehouses, and large retail establishments that require the antenna versatility associated with connectorized antennas, a rugged metal enclosure, and a broad operating temperature range. The Cisco Aironet 1240AG Series provides local as well as inline power, including support for IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE).

The Cisco Aironet 1240AG Series is available in two versions: unified or autonomous. Unified access points operate with the Lightweight Access Point Protocol (LWAPP) and work in conjunction with Cisco wireless LAN controllers and the Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS). When configured with LWAPP, the Cisco Aironet 1240AG Series can automatically detect the best-available Cisco wireless LAN controller and download appropriate policies and configuration information with no manual intervention. Autonomous access points are based on Cisco IOSŪ Software and may optionally operate with the CiscoWorks Wireless LAN Solution Engine (WLSE). Autonomous access points, along with the CiscoWorks WLSE, deliver a core set of features and may be field-upgraded to take advantage of the full benefits of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network as requirements evolve.

Cisco Aironet 1240AG Series access point are preconfigured dual-radio 802.11a and 802.11g access points that provides versatility, high capacity, security, and enterprise-class features required in more challenging RF environments like factories, warehouses, and retailers, and when installing above suspended ceilings.

This access point may only be ordered as a preconfigured access point that features a rugged metal case, built-in 802.11 a and 802.11g radios, and dual antenna connectors (RP-TNC). The access point has an operating temperature range of -4 to 131°F (-20 to 55°C), making it ideal for harsh environments. The access point ships with a 100 to 240VAC power supply and mounting brackets. Selection of a country power cord is required, and options for an inline power injector and console cable are available through the Cisco Configuration Tool. The Cisco Aironet 1240AG Series is driven by Cisco IOS® Software; when ordering the access point, the software image version must be selected in the configuration option. At the completion of configuration, the product will arrive fully assembled.
