Choosing the Right Access Point

Models

The Cisco 2800 and 3800 Series Access Points target customers requiring support for mission-critical and
best in class applications. The 2800/3800 embodies ClientLink 4.0, an innovative antenna technology comprising
four transmit radios and four receive radios called 4x4 in a Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO)
configuration and supporting three spatial streams (3SS), together referenced as 4x4:3. Using this type of
antenna system along with additional Modulation Coding Scheme (MCS) rates supporting up to 256 QAM
and up to 160 MHz channel bonding, rates of up to 5 Gbps can be supported.

    Differences between the AP 2800 and AP 3800 Access Points The mechanical front of the AP 2800 and AP 3800 are nearly identical in physical appearance. Figure 2: AP 2800 and AP 3800 (I and E) versions Cisco Aironet Series 2800/3800 Access Point Deployment Guide...
  • Page 4 There are slight differences in the weight and thickness of the 2800 and 3800. The AP 3800 is a bit more robust as it has support for mGig (NBASE-T) and optional module support. AP 2800 on left is smooth and does not have heat fins. Figure 4: AP 2800/3800 Dimensions Cisco Aironet Series 2800/3800 Access Point Deployment Guide...

    3600 and AP 3700 series. This module design allows for installation onto the side of the access point. This allows for larger antenna arrays and does not constrict the development of Cisco and potentially third party modules as they are no longer limited by the physical size of the cccess point. Additionally, filtering is installed on the AP 3800 for cellular and other radio coexistence.
  • Page 9 When a smart antenna connector is installed, the XOR radio (the radio that is defined in software as Radio 0) now has its RF switched to the smart antenna connector. Figure 10: External connector ports on AP 2800e and 3800e Cisco Aironet Series 2800/3800 Access Point Deployment Guide...
