Does Cisco still support Bridge APs. Like long range once, I do know that all APs can be set to be a bridge, but with regards to range, it is just a few meters.
Also, not interested in Mesh deployments since speed can be a bummer on this kind of deployment especially large once.
Solved! Go to Solution.
• Data rates of 54 Mbps in the 2.4-GHz band
• Bridge range of 20 miles (32 kilometers [km]) at 11 Mbps
• Aggregate throughput approaching 28 Mbps
• Maximum transmit power of 100 milliwatts (mW) for 802.11b and 30 mW for 802.11g. Maximum power setting will vary according to individual country regulations.
• For vehicle-installed deployments, over 100 km per hour speeds at 12 and 24 Mbps with 128-byte packets at 1 percent packet error rate (PER) (workgroup bridge mode connected to a Cisco Aironet access point or bridge)
• Support for antenna diversity
Dude, 1300 APs are EOS already.
and 2.4GHz Backbone is kind tricky considering it will easily with the Wifi Band, not a good choice.
Well, it looks like Cisco doesn't sell long range bridges anymore. sticking with Exalt then xD
Yeap, it looks like you are right. we are using 15xx models as well as Exalt devices for our design. Multiple hubs using Cisco and Exalt (Exalt used for very long distances)
As George mentioned refer the replacement product in the document : http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/wireless/aironet-1300-series/end_of_life_notice_c51-711894.html
