Last week at Interop New York, we unveiled theAironet Access Point 2600 and Aironet Access Point 1600. They join the Aironet Access Point 3600 (launched earlier this year) to make up Cisco’s second generation “G2” enterprise class 802.11n Cisco Aironet Access Points, a key component of Cisco’s Unified Access solution: one network.


The G2 series shares a common hardware and software foundation providing a robust and consistent set of wireless features across all the of the access points. The series was designed to balance feature functionality  and price to allow enterprises the ability to target the right access point for their specific location and role within their network.

Where did the impetus for the G2 series come from?

That’s easy: we listened to our customers. We took in our customer stories about what’s impacting their networks today and what they’re planning for the future, all the while keeping a close eye on industry trends. All of this was factored into our G2 series design and development, and I’m proud to say that our products address each of those megatrends and pain points:

We are keenly aware that our products serve a whole range of customers, so with G2, we strove for a tiered product approach to allow customers to have the option for choosing the most appropriate G2 series Access Point for their network. Our product tiers are based on “Network Location & Role + AP Functionality + Price Point” to provide customers the most flexibility possible to tackle their networking needs.

  1. Out the three models released in the Aironet Indoor G2 series I liked Best in Class 3600 for the speed reasons (1.3 Gbps per radio) that will help in faster data trasfer. Anyways its really good initiative by Cisco as in many Enterprises I have worked with, heavy loads over Wi-Fi networks result in network outages more often during evenings when all the employees want to wrap up their work in a hurry.
