PoE allows the device to receive both data and power over a single Ethernet cable, simplifying cable management and reducing the overall infrastructure complexity. This feature is particularly advantageous in scenarios where access points are installed in hard-to-reach locations or where power outlets are limited.Advantages of Wireless Access Points
The AIR-LAP1262N-A-K9 Cisco Aironet 1262N Wireless Access Point has several advantages that make it a popular choice for medium to large enterprises. Some of the key advantages of this access point are:
- High-performance wireless connectivity: The AIR-LAP1262N-A-K9 supports the 802.11n wireless standard, which provides faster data transfer rates and improved range compared to earlier standards. It also supports MIMO technology, which allows it to transmit and receive data from multiple antennas simultaneously, resulting in better performance and coverage.
- Advanced security features: The access point has a built-in wireless intrusion detection system (wIDS) that can detect and report on unauthorized wireless access points, rogue clients, and other security threats. It also supports a range of security protocols, including WPA and WPA2, to help ensure the privacy and integrity of wireless transmissions.
- Quality of service (QoS) support: The access point can prioritize traffic based on the type of data and the requirements of the applications being used. This helps to ensure that critical traffic, such as voice and video, receives priority over less important traffic, resulting in better performance and user experience.
- Scalability and flexibility: The access point can be used in a standalone configuration or as part of a larger network of access points. It supports wireless domain services (WDS), which allows it to act as a repeater or bridge between other access points, extending the wireless coverage of a network and improving overall performance.
- Easy to manage: The access point can be managed using Cisco's Wireless LAN Controller (WLC), which provides a centralized management platform for multiple access points. The WLC allows administrators to configure and monitor access points, perform firmware updates, and troubleshoot issues from a single location.
- Wide range of deployment options: The AIR-LAP1262N-A-K9 can be deployed in a variety of settings, including offices, schools, hospitals, warehouses, and outdoor environments. It supports both internal and external antennas, which allows it to be customized for specific deployment scenarios.
The AIR-LAP1262N-A-K9 Cisco Aironet 1262N Wireless Access Point provides several high availability and redundancy options that help ensure continuous wireless network access. Some of the key options are:
- Dual-image support: The access point supports dual-image support, which means that it can store and boot from two different software images. If one image becomes corrupted or fails, the access point can automatically boot from the backup image to ensure uninterrupted operation.
- Power over Ethernet (PoE) redundancy: The access point can be powered by a PoE switch or injector, and supports PoE redundancy. This means that if the primary power source fails, the access point can automatically switch to a backup power source to ensure continuous operation.
- Link aggregation: The access point supports link aggregation, which allows multiple physical links to be combined into a single logical link. This can improve throughput and redundancy by providing additional bandwidth and ensuring that traffic can be routed over an alternate path if a link fails.
- High availability (HA) clustering: The access point can be deployed in an HA cluster, which allows multiple access points to be grouped together to provide redundancy and load balancing. If one access point fails, the other access points in the cluster can automatically take over to ensure continuous wireless network access.
- SmartSignal Antenna technology: The access point features SmartSignal Antenna technology, which uses multiple antennas to provide better coverage and resiliency. If one antenna fails or becomes damaged, the access point can automatically switch to a backup antenna to maintain coverage.
Power over Ethernet (PoE) Considerations
The AIR-LAP1262N-A-K9 Cisco Aironet 1262N Wireless Access Point can be powered using Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology. PoE allows for both power and data to be transmitted over the same Ethernet cable, which simplifies the installation and reduces the need for additional power outlets near the access point.
Here are some PoE considerations for the AIR-LAP1262N-A-K9:
- PoE Standards: The AIR-LAP1262N-A-K9 supports the 802.3af PoE standard, which provides up to 15.4 watts of power to the access point. However, it does not support the newer 802.3at PoE+ standard, which provides up to 30 watts of power. If your network switch or PoE injector supports both standards, it is recommended to use PoE+ to ensure maximum power is delivered to the access point.
- Power requirements: The AIR-LAP1262N-A-K9 requires a minimum of 12.95 watts of power to operate. When using PoE, it is important to ensure that the network switch or PoE injector is capable of delivering enough power to the access point. You should also consider the power budget of the switch, which is the maximum amount of power that can be delivered to all connected PoE devices.
- Cable length: The length of the Ethernet cable between the network switch or PoE injector and the access point can affect the amount of power that is delivered. As the cable length increases, the amount of power that is delivered can decrease, which can affect the performance and stability of the access point. It is recommended to use high-quality Ethernet cables that are rated for PoE and to keep cable length as short as possible.
- Redundancy: In a mission-critical environment, it is recommended to use a redundant power supply or a redundant PoE source to ensure that the access point remains powered even if one source fails. This can help to prevent network downtime and ensure maximum availability.
