11n access points Antenna
Products
Cisco Aironet 802.11n access points include the Cisco Aironet 1260 Series, 1600
Series, 2600 series, 3500 Series, 3600 Series, and 1550 Series. These access points
require the use of external antennas to make them fully functioning units. Cisco has
developed antennas specifically designed for use with 802.11n access points to
optimize performance. This document explains the antenna options for the Cisco
Aironet 802.11n access points.
