Hyperconnectivity with steady performance in demanding environments, exponential growth of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and next-generation applications, and advanced persistent security threats - all of these require a wireless network that provides resiliency and superior connectivity, integrated security with advanced classification and containment, and hardware and software innovations to automate, secure, and simplify networks. Updating your wireless infrastructure to one that will meet these needs is paramount for todays digital business. With high-performance WiFi 6 (802.11ax) capabilities and innovations in RF performance, security, and analytics, enables end-to-end digitisation and helps accelerate the rollout of business services by delivering beyond WiFi. 802.11ax (WiFi 6) The emerging IEEE 802.11ax standard, also known as High-Efficiency-Wireless (HEW) or WiFi 6, builds on 802.11ac (WiFi 5). It will deliver a better experience in typical environments and more predictable performance for advanced applications such as 4K or 8K video, high-density, high-definition collaboration apps, all-wireless offices, and IoT.802.11ax (WiFi 6) is designed to use both the 2.4-Ghz and 5-GHz bands, unlike the 802.11ac (WiFi 5) standard. Uplink/downlink OFDMA OFDMA-based scheduling splits the bandwidth into smaller chunks called Resource Units (RUs), which can be allocated to individual clients in both the downlink and uplink directions to reduce overhead and latency. MU-MIMO technology Supporting four spatial streams, MU-MIMO enables access point to split spatial streams between client devices, to maximise throughput. BSS Coloring Spatial reuse (also known as Basic Service Set [BSS] Coloring) allows the access point and its clients to differentiate between BSSs, thus permitting more simultaneous transmissions. This offers significant energy savings for battery-operated devices, up to 3x to 4x compared to 802.11n (WiFi 4) and 802.11ac (WiFi 5). Intelligent Capture Intelligent Capture probes the network and provides Cisco DNA Centre with deep analysis.
The software can track over 240 anomalies and instantaneously review all packets on demand, emulating the onsite network administrator. Intelligent Capture allows for more informed decisions on your wireless networks. Cisco Mobility Express Mobility Express is designed for networks of all sizes, including small and medium-sized businesses and distributed enterprises.
It provides industry-leading wireless LAN technology without the need for a physical controller or additional licences. Multi-Gigabit Ethernet support Provides uplink speeds of 2.5 Gbps, in addition to 100 Mbps and 1 Gbps.All speeds are supported on Category 5e cabling for an industry first, as well as 10GBASE-T (IEEE 802.3bz) cabling. Bluetooth 5.0 Integrated Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 5.0 radio to enable IoT use cases such as location tracking and wayfinding. Container support for applications Enables edge computing capabilities for IoT applications on the host access point. The Cisco Catalyst 9120AXI Access Point supports both Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) and Multi-User, Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output (MU-MIMO), delivering more predictable performance for advanced applications and IoT. Additionally, with up to 5 Gbps with NBASE-T and IEEE 802.3bz Ethernet compatibility, the Cisco Catalyst 9120AXI can seamlessly offload network traffic without any bottlenecks.
With Ciscos Multi-Gigabit technology, you can use your existing Category 5e or 6 cabling to achieve speeds up to 2.5 Gbps, allowing for higher throughputs with minimum cost. Allows the access point to intelligently determine the operating mode of serving radios based on the RF environment. The access point can operate in the following modes.
2.4-GHz and 5-GHz mode: One radio will serve clients in 2.4-GHz mode, while the other serves clients in 5-GHz mode. Dual 5-GHz mode: Both radios inside the access point operate on the 5-GHz band, maximising the benefits of WiFi 6 by allowing an industry-leading 5.2 Gbps (2 x 2.6 Gbps) over-the-air speeds while increasing client device capacity. Also available, Cisco RF ASIC is a fully integrated Software Defined Radio (SDR) that can perform advanced RF spectrum analysis and delivers features like CleanAir, Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS), Fast Locate (available in the future), DFS detection.Steady performance in demanding environments. Network infrastructures that upgrade to WiFi 6 (also known as 802.11ax) enabled devices will get up to 4x capacity boost needed to support the additional devices connected to the network as well as the data that they generate.
802.11ax (WiFi 6) will offer multi-Gigabit performance which will feature a seamless connectivity with higher throughput compared to the 802.11ac (WiFi 5) standard. This means youll see your network performance run smoother. With support for BSS Coloring, the new standard eases high device dense deployments by allowing simultaneous transmissions, ultimately increasing network capacity, customer interactions, and value-add services.BSS Coloring allows the limited channels in the 2.4 GHz to have better spectral re-use benefiting IoT and 2.4 GHz clients. WiFi 6, with better coordination of transit time to and from devices, will also bring about a reduction in latency and a greater reliability allowing for hundreds of devices per access point. This allows for IoT devices to be reliably deployed at scale.
And an overall improved user experience will be seen as well, as 802.11ax (WiFi 6) will improve device battery life of devices such as smartphones, tablets and IoT when compared to prior standards. Trustworthy systems built with Cisco Trust Anchor Technologies provide a highly secure foundation for Cisco products.
