The Cisco Aironet 3800 Series are Wi-Fi access points that deliver high versatility and the most functionality of any access point in the industry. The 3800 Series consists of three models, the 3800i, 3800e, and 3800p. All models provide 4x4 MU-MIMO technology and supports 3 spatial streams to maximize throughput.
As an 802.11ac Wave 2 standard access point, the 3800 Series includes multiuser MIMO (MU-MIMO). This allows multiple data streams to travel from access point to Wave 2 supported devices to connect all at once and receive information fast. The 3800 Series supports multigigabit Ethernet (mGig), with existing Cat 5e, Cat 6, and 10GBASE-T (Cat 6A) cabling to Increase speed without any added expenses.
The 3800 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 is ideal for high density environments and supports up to 100 access points without a physical controller.
