The Cisco Aironet 2800 Series provide exceptional flexibility and versatility to mid-size and large enterprise networks that rely on Wi-Fi to engage with customers. The 2800 Series consists of the 2800i and the 2800e access points that deliver 4x4 MU-MIMO technology and supports 3 spatial streams. The 2800i access point features an internal antenna while the 2800e access point features an external antenna.
As an 802.11ac Wave 2 compliant access point, the 2800 Series supports multiuser MIMO (MU-MIMO). This enables multiple data streams to travel from access point to Wave 2 supported devices to receive information fast.
The 2800 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 allows for easy setup and flexible deployment for up to 100 access points without a physical controller.
