Cisco has launched its Aironet 3600 series of wireless access points, designed to make it easier to manage 'bring your own' device schemes.
The enterprise Wi-Fi hubs were unveiled at the Cisco Live event in London on Tuesday. Sujai Hajela, general manager of Cisco's wireless networking business
unit, said in an interview the company is looking to create gear
that will "enable seamless connections to any wireless device" and
maintain quality "no matter the difference from the access point."
According to Hajela, Cisco expects the Aironet line can
maintain quality as workers conduct video conferences, connect to virtual
desktops and make wireless local-area network calls from their devices.
With four antenna,
the Aironet is expected to account for multiple spatial streams — the paths between
the wireless signals served by an antenna and a device — and hit multiple
devices. For instance, an iPad could use one spatial stream, a laptop
would occupy two and an iPhone could have another.
