Small Business 100, 300 and 500 Series of APs
Cisco's Small Business family of wireless access points are Linux-based devices engineered as value-priced 802.11n Wi-Fi solutions for small offices. Most versions in Cisco's Small Business family of APs work with Cisco's Single Point Setup system, which makes it possible to configure, manage and troubleshoot a cluster of wireless access points from a single AP through an intuitive browser-based tool. All versions support POE and feature QoS, rogue access point detection, and bridging for connecting to a second network.
