Overview of Cisco's Catalyst Line of Wi-Fi 6 Access Points
Cisco's Catalyst line of 802.11ax (referred to as W-Fi 6) wireless access points improve on previous generation 802.11ac (called Wi-Fi 5) APs by delivering lower latency and more predictable performance, supporting higher client density, providing greater security, saving energy for battery-powered mobile devices, and offering more flexibility for handling new types of Internet-of-Things (IoT) endpoints.

Progent's Cisco CCIE-certified Wi-Fi experts offer online or on-premises consulting and technical support services to help businesses of any size to plan, configure, upgrade, tune, manage and troubleshoot Catalyst indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi 6 access point systems for any network architecture or site. Progent's Cisco-certified CCIE network infrastructure consultants and Cisco wireless controller consultants can also assist you to integrate your Wi-Fi environment seamlessly with your local wired network and your cloud infrastructure to build a unified ecosystem with centralized management and practically unlimited expandability. Progent can also provide economical Wi-Fi site surveys to assist you to plan an efficient deployment of Wi-Fi access points that includes the selection of appropriate Catalyst AP devices and their optimal placement based on your site's physical layout and RF environment as well as your anticipated application loads, client density, and endpoint types.

Cisco Catalyst Wi-Fi 6 Access Points Consultants

Cisco's Catalyst Wi-Fi 6 access points support the performance and scale of the 802.11ax standard

Cisco Catalyst 9100 Series Wi-Fi 6 Wireless Access Points
Cisco's Catalyst 9100 line of Wi-Fi 6 wireless access points (APs) are designed for environments ranging from home offices to enterprise campuses and crowded stadiums. Catalyst 9100 APs are based on the 802.11ax standard, which in turn builds on the previous 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5) specification. Unlike 802.11ac, Wi-Fi 6 is designed to use both the 2.4-Ghz and 5-GHz bands. Headline technologies introduced by the 802.11ax standard and supported by Cisco 9100 Series APs include MU-MIMO support for uplink traffic, Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) scheduling for ultra-high density deployment scenarios, dual NAVs for improved reliability, Target Wake Time (TWT) for reduced power consumption in battery-powered endpoints, adaptive power and sensitivity thresholds for more efficient spectrum utilization, dynamic fragmentation for reduced overhead, and extended guard interval durations for improved performance in outdoor environments. All Catalyst 9100 Series Wi-Fi 6 wireless access points support Cisco's Embedded Wireless Controller (EWC), include a USB port, handle up to 200 clients per Wi-Fi radio, and are powered by Cisco IOS XE Software.

Cisco's Embedded Wireless Controller on Catalyst 9100 Series Wi-Fi 6 Access Points
Cisco's Embedded Wireless Controller (EWC) is a software image powered by Cisco IOS XE and available for most Catalyst 9100 access points. EWC supports most management functions, but not the scale, of Cisco's Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controller appliances. APs running EWC can simultaneously service Wi-Fi clients. (Catalyst 9105AXW APs can join an EWC network and service clients but are not able to run EWC functions.) The EWC can be managed using Cisco DNA Center for multisite networks, or via a browser or mobile app for single-site environments. All Cisco DNA Center Automation and Assurance use cases are supported. EWC features include high availability with active and standby controllers, software maintenance updates (SMUs) for hot patching, automatic configuration, Application Visibility and Control (AVC), Flexible Radio Assignment, and Site Survey.
