Cisco Catalyst9124AXD Access Point Dubai
The Cisco Catalyst9124AXD Dubai Series offers flexible deployment options for service providers and enterprise networks that need the fastest links possible for mobile, outdoor clients (smartphones, tablets, and laptops), and wireless backhaul. With options for internal or external antennas, the 9124AX Series gives network operators the flexibility to balance their desired wireless coverage with their need for easy deployment.
The Cisco Catalyst9124AXD Dubai Series access points, paired with the Cisco Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA), are enterprise-class products that will address both your current and future needs. They are the first step in updating your network to take better advantage of all of the features and benefits that Wi-Fi 6 provides.
The Cisco Catalyst9124AXD Dubai features Uplink/Downlink Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA), a technology borrowed from the mobile phone industry. OFDMA vastly improves upon the existing OFDM technology used in Wi-Fi APs. It allows multiple clients to share Wi-Fi channels. This feature can relieve congestion in crowded offices as 802.11 ax stations need not wait to get access to a full channel and instead share the channel with others and get things done.
OFDMA can make the whole WLAN efficient as clients devices with smaller loads that form the bulk of wireless communications can quickly transmit data. Though this feature can only be fully utilized in an environment having only 802.11ax clients, legacy clients can also experience an upside as the air will clear out quickly due to efficient communications happening in 802.11ax ecosystem.
Uplink(802.11ax)/Downlink MU-MIMO (2 streams per radio, total 4 streams) helps the AP to communicate with multiple clients simultaneously. This helps the stations to get quick access to the Cisco Catalyst9124AXD Dubai, thereby increasing the number of clients that can be served by an AP. This feature generally improves airtime efficiency and speed for all the clients.
The Cisco Catalyst9124AXD Dubai Wi-Fi 6 AP can support 1024 QAM, which means faster data communications than currently possible. But to achieve such speeds, noise free environments will be needed along with closer ranges between access points and clients. Such requirements make it practically impossible to achieve the stated speeds in crowded environments that need constant Wi-Fi signal management.
This Cisco Catalyst9124AXD Dubai wall plate AP supports BSS Coloring feature of the Wi-Fi 6 standard. BSS Coloring feature has been carried forward from the 802.11ah “Wi-Fi HaLow” standard and it identifies each access point in a WLAN with a unique identifier called ‘color’. This helps client stations to safely ignore communications in neighboring access points with a different color and below a threshold power level, and keep transmitting. This speeds up communications as clients need not stop data transfers to access points due to transmissions happening else where in the WLAN network in the same channel. This greatly helps to overcome limitations posed on wireless communications by existing co-channel interference safe guards.
Target Wake Time
Target Wake Time is another feature inspired from the 802.11ah IoT standard. This feature helps the Cisco Wi-Fi Dubai to wake up clients based on a pre-negotiated time interval to receive data. The clients can sleep during other times, helping them to save battery. This feature can greatly help customers choosing this access point for IoT applications.
Apple iOS Fast Lane
This feature, developed from the partnership between Cisco and Apple, helps iOS 10+ applications get priority in Wi-Fi communications. This provides better service levels to end users having Apple iOS products. This can help hospitality units using Cisco Catalyst9124AXD Dubai wall plate AP to provide better Wi-Fi connectivity to customers using Apple devices and delight them.
Low Power Consumption
This light weight Cisco Catalyst9124AXD Dubai draws just 13W of power, which is one of the lowest consumption levels seen in enterprise grade access points. Thus, 802.3af PoE supply is enough to run this device when there are no other devices powered through its USB or LAN port.
This Cisco Wi-Fi Dubai AP has a dedicated on-board radio to support BLE 5.0 stations for IoT . This eliminates the need to deploy additional infrastructure for certain IoT services. It can be useful in environments where IoT need to be implemented in a cost effective way. The AP also provides container support for IoT applications.
WPA3 security and OEAP
WPA3 is the latest security standard approved by Wi-Fi Alliance for keeping Wi-Fi communications secure. WPA3 tackles the shortcomings of its predecessor WPA2 in encrypting data transfers and has been in use since 2018. WPA3 was a major update to Wi-Fi security after 14 years since WPA2 was launched in 2004.
Also this Cisco Wi-Fi Dubai can be operated in OEAP mode (Office Extend Access Point) for remote workers to securely connect with office network. This should be especially useful in the current COVID 19 pandemic situation where work from home has become the norm.
