Cisco Aironet 1230 Series Access Point

Cisco Aironet® 1230 Series Access Point

Features

Cisco Aironet® 1230AG Series IEEE 802.11a/b/g access points deliver the versatility, high capacity, security, and enterprise-class features demanded by WLAN customers. It is designed specifically for challenging RF environments like 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.

Supporting Cisco IOS® Software, the Cisco Aironet 1230AG Series is a component of the Cisco Structured Wireless-Aware Network (SWAN) framework, a comprehensive framework that delivers an integrated, end-to-end wired and wireless network. Using the radio and network management features of the Cisco SWAN framework for simplified deployment, the Cisco Aironet 1230AG Series extends the security, scalability, reliability, ease of deployment, and manageability available in wired networks to the WLAN.

With simultaneous support of 802.11a and 802.11g standards, the Cisco Aironet 1230AG Series delivers up to 108 Mbps of data rate in the 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz bands. Fifteen nonoverlapping channels are available today, which will increase to 26 nonoverlapping channels with a future firmware release (and pending country specific regulatory approvals), simplifying deployments for high capacity wireless networks. For investment protection, the Cisco Aironet 1230AG Series fully supports the capabilities of today’s dual-band WLAN clients while providing backward compatibility with legacy 802.11b clients.

The Cisco Aironet 1230AG Series is part of the award-winning Cisco Wireless Security Suite, which supports 802.11i, Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2), WPA, and numerous Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) types. WPA and WPA2 are the Wi-Fi Alliance certifications for interoperable, standards-based WLAN security. These certifications support IEEE 802.1X for user-based authentication, Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) for WPA encryption, and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) for WPA2 encryption. These certifications help to ensure interoperability between Wi-Fi-certified WLAN devices from different manufacturers.

The Cisco Aironet 1230AG Series hardware-accelerated AES encryption supports enterprise-class, government-grade secure encryption over the WLAN without compromising performance. IEEE 802.1X authentication helps to ensure that only authorized users are allowed on the network. Backward compatibility and support for WPA client devices running TKIP, the RC4 encryption algorithm is also supported by the Cisco Aironet 1230AG Series.
