Cisco Aironet 3600 AP Passes 1 Million Units Shipped!

Hey folks, I’m back in the blogosphere to make a super exciting announcement.

The Cisco Aironet 3600 Series Access Point with its purpose built best-in-class Wireless performance, industry’s first and only Enterprise Class AP to support 802.11n with 4x4 MIMO architecture, and signature modular design was launched in January 2012 at Cisco Live! London. Cisco was first to market with an 802.11ac wave 1 solution and first to be published with WiFi Alliance certification. Just 18 months since launching, the flagship 3600 AP has now surpassed the ONE MILLION mark in units shipped!

We designed the access point with modular architecture in mind to give our customers more flexibility for upcoming technological innovations in the wireless space. Since the initial launch, we have announced three exciting modules tailored to help our customers meet their wireless needs: Wireless Security and Spectrum Intelligence, 3G Small Cell, and most recently 802.11ac Wave 1. The modules have been extremely successful, having deployed 40K units of the .11ac module and 10K units of the Wireless Security and Spectrum Intelligence module, which speaks volumes about the versatility of the 3600 Access Point.

Not all Streams are Created Equal

It can be so easy to be mislead by vendors claiming incredible bandwidth gains offered by their new '3 Spatial Streams' wireless access points. The tricky part is that none of them are outright lying, they are simply describing a reality that nobody lives in.  Cisco released the new 3600 series access points at CiscoLive London last week. We have also had fun showing the incredible bandwidth gains available through this extra stream - but we did it with custom designed silicon to create a 4x4 radio.  Why is this valuable to you? Is it not just 'more is better?'  Hardly.  The true genius being offered here is only clear when you understand some basics of how radios work.  Multiple capabilities unique to Cisco come into play here such as ClientLink and CleanAir. Watch this 'Fundamentals of Spatial Streams' to arm yourself with knowledge you can apply right away. It will be the best 6 minutes of your life (today at least).
