Today, Ctelecoms is very happy to inform you on Cisco's important announcement on Switching and wireless product details!
Cisco would like to tell us a little bit about the two new models that have been announced by wireless product manager Nasser Tarazi: WAP351 and WAP131 which will both be covered in the next couple of weeks.
The first model WAP351 which is the perfect device to be used anywhere. It provides a wireless N connectivity and limited lifetime guarantee! It also offers a Dual Radio (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) wireless N connectivity, a 5-port Switch with PoE PD and PSE support, Single Point Setup and captive portal.
The WAP351 offers something new to the Wireless portfolio. Here is a quick Power over Ethernet (PoE) primer. PoE Powered-Device (PD) is the ability to power the device through a PD-capable Ethernet port In terms of power, a standard PoE port can support a maximum output of 15W, while a PoE+ port supports up to 30W.
Now, back to the WAP351. As mentioned above, the WAP351 support both PD and PSE. This means if the WAP351 is connected to a PoE+ switch like the SG300-10PP, the WAP351 can be power through PD-capable Ethernet port, while at the same time powering a standard PoE device like a phone or another AP, like the WAP131 through the WAP351’s designated PSE-capable Ethernet port.
Power over Ethernet (POE) allows power and files to link onto one Ethernet cable in order to operate different devices. And a WAP with a PSE is mainly needed in smaller places like offices schools and meeting rooms. Another great thing about this wireless device is it can be installed in places where electricity is not generally available (such as walls or ceilings...etc.), it's also worth noting that:
