Small Business 100, 300 and 500 Family of Access Points
Cisco's Small Business 100, 300 and 500 family of APs are Linux-based units engineered as entry-level 802.11n Wi-Fi solutions for light workloads. Most versions in the Cisco Small Business portfolio of wireless access points work with Cisco's Single Point Setup technology, which makes it possible to configure, control and repair a group of access points from a single device through an intuitive web browser interface. All versions support Power over Ethernet and provide Quality of Service (QoS), rogue AP detection, and bridging for connecting to a second network.
