The Cisco Aironet 1850 Series delivers industry-leading performance for small and medium size networks with the 1850i and 1850e access points. These 1850 Series are 4x4 MIMO, four-spatial-stream access points that support 802.11ac Wave 2 specification. The 1850i access point features an internal antenna while the 1850e access point features an external antenna.
The 1850 Series features multiuser multiple-input, multiple-output (MU-MIMO). This allows for multiple data streams to travel from access point to Wave 2 capable devices, connecting simultaneously to get information fast.
The 1850 Series supports both a controller-based solution for large networks and a virtual controller-based solution for small and medium networks, such as Cisco Mobility Express. Cisco Mobility Express provides flexible deployment and easy setup for the 1850 Series to be deployed on networks without a physical controller.
