Installation and Configuration of Wireless Access Point
The Cisco Catalyst 9120axe Wireless Access Point is a high-performance, next-generation access point that supports the latest Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard. It provides high-speed wireless connectivity and enhanced security features. Here are the general steps to install and configure the C9120AXE-B Cisco Catalyst 9120axe Wireless Access Point:
- Physically install the access point: The first step is to mount the access point on the ceiling or wall using the provided mounting kit. You'll need to connect the access point to a power source using the included power adapter or through Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch.
- Access the web interface: Once the access point is powered on, you can access its web interface to configure it. Connect your laptop or computer to the access point's default SSID (CiscoAirProvision) using a network cable. Launch a web browser and type in the default IP address (192.168.1.1) to access the access point's web interface.
- Configure basic settings: Once you've accessed the web interface, you'll be prompted to configure basic settings such as the access point's hostname, IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.
- Configure wireless settings: After configuring the basic settings, you'll need to configure the wireless settings. This includes setting up wireless networks (SSIDs), configuring security settings, and enabling features such as Quality of Service (QoS) and Radio Resource Management (RRM).
- Configure advanced settings: The Cisco Catalyst 9120axe Access Point also provides advanced features such as mesh networking, wireless bridge, and VLAN tagging. If you need to use any of these features, you'll need to configure them in the access point's web interface.
- Test the wireless network: After configuring the access point, you should test the wireless network to ensure that it's working correctly. You can use a wireless device such as a laptop or smartphone to connect to the network and test the speed and connectivity.
Quality of Service and Traffic Management
Quality of Service (QoS) and Traffic Management are essential features of the Cisco Catalyst 9120axe Wireless Access Point (WAP) that help to ensure reliable and efficient network performance.
QoS refers to the ability of the WAP to prioritize network traffic based on specific criteria. This allows for more important data to be transmitted first, resulting in better network performance and reduced latency. The C9120AXE-B WAP supports various QoS mechanisms, including the use of Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) and Class of Service (CoS) marking, as well as the application of Quality of Service policies.
Traffic Management, on the other hand, involves managing and controlling network traffic to prevent congestion and ensure optimal performance. This can include features such as rate limiting, packet dropping, and queuing. The C9120AXE-B WAP includes advanced traffic management features such as the ability to manage multiple wireless networks, segment traffic based on VLANs, and prioritize critical applications.
Environmental Specifications and Certifications
Environmental specifications and certifications of C9120AXE-B Cisco Catalyst 9120axe Wireless Access Point refer to the requirements that the device must meet in terms of its operating environment and its compliance with various environmental regulations and standards.

A wireless network connection allows users to connect their server, computer, or mobile phone networks without the use of any kind of wire cables.
Using a wireless network, enterprises and private owners are able to avoid the expensive and strenuous process of installing cables. There is no need for wired devices between equipment in different locations and into the buildings.
Wireless network router, for example, allows for simultaneous connection sharing between various wireless accessories for a better performance experience. Wireless networks make use of radio waves to allow devices to connect. They can connect devices such as laptops, mobile phones, and smart televisions to the internet or other applications.
When users have their wireless devices connected to Wi-Fi hotspots in public places, the connection remains established to that particular business network. While installing a new wireless networking device in homes or offices, users must consider several things. One of the most important ones is the unit's compatibility with other wireless accessories
Wireless Networking Devices
Fast and reliable internet connectivity is guaranteed when users pick the right set of networking devices for home and office networks. Wireless devices come in different varieties. These different types of networking devices only function to suit users' connectivity requirements. Wireless routers connect devices to the internet for high-quality streaming and surfing. They also improve users' streaming experience and other internet activities.
In most cases, wireless networking devices help users get their work done easily with lesser stress. They ensure fast and reliable internet connectivity at all times.
You can choose the right device for your needs from a wide selection of AllHDD wireless devices. We have new and refurbished devices like 1 to 8-port interface cards, external 3G and 4G modems, wireless access points with the speed range from 11MBps up to 5.2GBps and everything in between.
Main Types of Wireless Networks
There are four main types of wireless networks:
Wireless Local Area Network (LAN)
This type of network links two or more devices using a wireless connection method. It provides a connection via access points to a wider internet. Wi-Fi is the most commonly known and used wireless LAN type.
A local-area network is one that exists at a single location—an office building, for instance. LANs can be used to connect a wide array of accessories, such as scanners, printers, and even data storage devices.
The known components of LANs include switches, access points, routers, firewalls, and Ethernet cables.
Wireless Metropolitan Area Networks (MAN)
A metropolitan-area network is one that spreads across a city, small geographical area, business area, or even college campus. One distinguishing factor that differentiates MANs from LANs is the coverage capacity or size. LANs usually provide a network for a building or specific area.
While MANs, on the other hand, cover several square miles depending on the desires and requirements of the organization using it. Large-scale companies often obtain MANs to level up with their needs.
This happens most especially in situations whereby a company has a spacious organization. Then, they have the need to manage important components such as climate control and electrical systems.
Wireless Wide Area Network (WAN)
A wide-area network covers an incredibly vast area. It can be a whole city, an entire state, or even a country. The internet everyone uses today is an apt example of WAN access. Just like the internet, a WAN consists of smaller networks, such as LANs or MANs.
The cellular service we get on our mobile devices today is the most commonly known example of wireless Wide Area Networks. It is always available everywhere we go within the country.
Wireless Personal Area Network (PAN)
Personal-area networks consist of a network mainly concentrated around the devices of a single person in a particular location.
A PAN could have a mobile phone, computer, video game console, or other auxiliary devices. They are regular home devices and small office devices. A well-known example of a wireless PAN is Bluetooth.
