Aesthetic recessed mounting for Cisco Catalyst 9120 Series APs

Oberon’s 1040 Series provides aesthetic recessed mounting for most vendors’ access points (APs) and antennas, with trims that are easily swapped out for new APs and antennas. The Model 1040-COAP9120 is designed specifically for Cisco Catalyst 9120 Series access points. This mounting kit for cloud, canopy, or suspended ceilings features a low-profile ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) plastic cover. A cutout is made in the ceiling panel, the panel bridge is placed above the ceiling panel, and the AP or antenna is attached to the white trim. The AP/antenna/trim assembly is then drawn into the panel bridge with a torsion spring, as in certain recessed lighting fixtures, with only the front face exposed for optimal wireless coverage. Oberon, now a division of Chatsworth Products, offers a vast selection of indoor and outdoor enclosures and mounts for securing wireless infrastructure in virtually every venue. Oberon emphasizes that the Model 1040-COAP9120 and its other enclosure solutions are secure, convenient, and aesthetic.
