Integration of Wireless Access Points with Other Network Devices
The Cisco Aironet 3702P Wireless Access Point (WAP) can be integrated with other network devices to enhance the overall network performance and provide better wireless coverage. The integration process can be achieved through a variety of methods, including:
- Wired Ethernet: The Aironet 3702P can be connected to other network devices, such as switches or routers, through a wired Ethernet connection. This provides a fast and reliable connection for data transfer between devices.
- Wireless Distribution System (WDS): This method enables the Aironet 3702P to work in collaboration with other wireless access points to create a wireless network that provides a wider coverage area. This helps to reduce the number of access points required to provide complete coverage, thus reducing the overall costs.
- Lightweight Access Point Protocol (LWAPP): This is a protocol that enables the Aironet 3702P to communicate with a central controller, such as a Cisco Wireless Controller. This enables the central controller to manage and control all the wireless access points on the network, including configuring and monitoring them.
- Power over Ethernet (PoE): The Aironet 3702P supports PoE, which enables it to receive power and data over a single Ethernet cable. This makes it easier to install and reduces the number of cables required, making it a cost-effective solution.
Upgrading Your Wireless Network
The Cisco Aironet 3702P 1.27 Gbit/s Wireless Access Point (AIR-CAP3702P-B-K9) is a high-performance wireless access point that provides secure and reliable wireless connectivity to support various business applications. To maximize wireless security, the following measures can be taken:
- Encryption: Ensure that WPA2-Enterprise or WPA3-Enterprise encryption is enabled on the access point. This will encrypt the wireless traffic and prevent unauthorized access.
- RADIUS Server: Set up a RADIUS server for authentication and authorization of wireless clients. This will ensure that only authorized clients are able to access the wireless network.
- Firewall: Enable the firewall feature on the access point to prevent unauthorized access and prevent malicious traffic from entering the network.
- VLANs: Use VLANs to segment the network and isolate different segments of the network from each other. This will prevent malicious traffic from spreading across the network.
- 802.1X Authentication: Use 802.1X authentication to verify the identity of the wireless clients before granting them access to the network. This will prevent unauthorized clients from accessing the network.
- Disable SSID Broadcast: Disable SSID broadcast to prevent unauthorized clients from discovering the wireless network.
- Wireless Intrusion Detection and Prevention (WIDS/WIPS): Use WID/WIPS to detect and prevent wireless security threats in real-time.
- Disable Unused Features: Disable unused features, such as guest access, to reduce the attack surface of the network.
By implementing these measures, organizations can ensure that their wireless network is secure and protected from potential threats.
Setting Up a Wireless Access Point
The AIR-CAP3702P-B-K9 Cisco Aironet 3702P is a high-performance wireless access point that supports dual-band, 802.11a/g/n/ac Wi-Fi standards. It delivers up to 1.27 Gbit/s data rate and can support up to 500 simultaneous clients. Here is a step-by-step guide to setting up the AIR-CAP3702P-B-K9:
- Hardware setup: Unbox the access point and connect it to a power source. Connect the access point to your network using an Ethernet cable.
- Console setup: Connect a console cable to the access point and to your computer. Start a terminal emulation program such as HyperTerminal and configure it for 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, and no flow control.
- Configure the IP address: Configure the IP address of your computer to be in the same subnet as the access point.
- Login to the access point: Power on the access point and press the Enter key to access the command line interface (CLI). Log in using the default username (cisco) and password (cisco).
- Enable privileged mode: Type "enable" and press Enter. Type the enable password (cisco) and press Enter.
- Configure the network: Configure the IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS server of the access point.
- Configure the wireless network: Create a new wireless network using the "configure terminal" command. Set the SSID, security mode, and encryption method.
- Save the configuration: Use the "copy running-config startup-config" command to save the configuration to non-volatile memory.
- Verify the configuration: Use the "show interfaces" and "show wireless" commands to verify the network configuration.
- Deploy the access point: Mount the access point in a location with good Wi-Fi coverage. Connect clients to the wireless network and verify the connection.

About Refurbished Products
With the growing number of wireless devices, there is a clear pointer that your business requires a wireless controller. Regardless of the size of your organization, you will find controllers that match your need. But what are these controllers used for? In a wireless local area network (WLAN), a controller manages all wireless access points. That permits wireless devices to connect to the network and communicate with each other. Think of it as an audio amplifier, but in this case, a controller amplifies the signal from the router so that even devices at far distances can connect.
How to Buy a Wireless Controller
You have to consider many factors when planning to buy a wireless network controller. At the top of the list is the budget. Depending on the resources you have set aside for this project, you can go for high-end 10-gigabit controllers or choose cost-effective options. Another factor to consider is the size of your organization. Assuming that you have enough money on your budget, a wireless controller with many access points and port is the ideal choice for large enterprises. The same will do for small businesses, but not be economical. So, instead of buying an 8-port controller, you can go for a 4-port one with few access points. Medium-sized organizations are better off with 6-point controllers such as AIR-CT5760-1K-K9 Cisco 5760.
What are the Benefits of Wireless Network Controllers?
The first benefit is better security for both your wired and wireless networks. Most cybercrimes begin at the unsecured wireless network access points. But with controllers, you can authenticate users and assign access privileges to maintain your network security. You can also detect and stop any unauthorized attempt to access the network on time before it turns into a disaster.
A wireless controller makes it possible and easier to monitor and manage a network. You can remotely monitor the entire IT infrastructure and save on the time and cost of site surveying. The simplified network monitoring and management ensure reliability while reducing the maintenance cost.
