Product Description

Cisco Business 145AC - Wi-Fi - Dual Band Radio Access Point - 802.11ac

With a sleek design and small form factor,the Cisco Business 145AC Access Point brings a full slate of Cisco high-performance functionality to in-room or office deployments where a mixture of wired and wireless devices is used.

The Cisco Business 145AC Access Point is a compact,wall plate - mountable access point,ideal for in-room or office deployments requiring connectivity for both wired and wireless devices.

Incorporating support for 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless standards and Gigabit Ethernet wired connectivity into a sleek device,the Cisco Business 145AC is built to take full advantage of in-wall cabling infrastructure while blending into the visual footprint. This combination provides deployment flexibility while offering best-in-class performance.

By adhering to the 802.11ac Wave 2 standard,the Cisco Business 145AC Access Point delivers a data rate of up to 867 Mbps on its 5-GHz radio. This exceeds the data rates offered by access points that support the 802.11n standard. It also enables a total aggregate dual-radio data rate of up to 1 Gbps,providing the necessary foundation for small business and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to stay ahead of the performance expectations and needs of their wireless users.

In recent years,small businesses,enterprises,and managed service providers alike have increasingly preferred wireless access as the principal form of network connectivity. Along with this shift,there is an expectation that wireless should enable a high-performance experience. The Cisco Business 145AC Access Point delivers outstanding performance with highly secure and reliable wireless connections,for a robust,mobile end-user experience.
  • Multi-User (MU) Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MU-MIMO) technology allows transmission of data to multiple 802.11ac Wave 2-capable clients simultaneously to improve the client experience. Prior to MU-MIMO,802.11n and 802.11ac Wave 1 access points could transmit data to only one client at a time. This was typically referred to as Single-User MIMO (SU-MIMO).
  • Gigabit Ethernet ports
  • Three local Gigabit Ethernet ports are available to securely connect wired devices to the network. Traffic from wired devices can be tunneled back to Master AP or be locally switched by the access point. One of these Ethernet ports can also provide Power over Ethernet (PoE) out to power a device such as an IP phone or a security camera.
  • Mesh technology support
  • Mix and match Cisco Business mesh extenders or access points to increase Wi-Fi coverage throughout your business.
  • Flexible deployment
  • Flexible deployment models supporting multiple concurrent use cases required by small businesses,including point of sale systems,surveillance cameras,guest access,and more.
  • Increased wireless performance
  • The Cisco Business 145AC Access Point supports 802.11ac Wave 2 standard for higher performance,greater access,and higher-density networks. With simultaneous dual radios and dual bands with 802.11ac Wave 2 MU-MIMO functionality,this access point can handle the increasing number of high-bandwidth devices that will soon become a common part of the network.
  • Wired access
  • The Cisco Business 145AC Access Point allows wired access via a single Gigabit Ethernet port. It supports full operation modes using PoE 802.3af power. The 145AC comes with three local Gigabit Ethernet ports,one uplink Gigabit Ethernet port,and one passive pass-through RJ-45 port,allowing for a variety of connections.
  • Mounting
  • This compact access point is designed with flexible mounting options in mind. You can mount it directly on the wall or to numerous global wall-junction standards and it is easy to install.
