Aerohive contends that its recently unveiled 802.11ac Wave 2 access points, the AP250 and AP245X (and new line of switches, the SR2208P, SR2224P, SR2324P, and SR2348P) represent the “most-adaptable wireless infrastructure available today for connected enterprises.” The new products “double network capacity with [proprietary] 802.11ac Wave 2 Everywhere and Unified Wired and Wireless Cloud Management” features, added a product press release. The new cloud-managed 802.11ac Wave 2 access points feature integrated Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology and are built on Aerohive’s proven RF-IQ technology. RF-IQ incorporates distributed control radio intelligence, such as automated channel and power selection, load balancing, band steering, and other capabilities that enable complex radio functionality. The AP250 access point’s software-selectable radios maximize customers’ return on investment by allowing administrators to select transmission at 2.4GHz and 5GHz or to select dual 5GHz.

Cisco’s new 2800 and 3800 series 802.11ac Wave 2 access points offer unprecedented enterprise mobile networking performance. Oberon, a Cisco Solution Partner, manufactures mounting solutions and enclosures for Cisco access points. Oberon’s new 1040 series recess mounts are designed to recess the access point partially into the ceiling, much like recessed lighting, exposing only the antenna face of the access point. This provides a secure, aesthetic, and professional installation, versus clipping the access point to the ceiling grid. Model 1040 series styles are available for most types of ceilings, including suspended (drop) grid ceilings, cloud ceilings, hard (gyp-board) ceilings, new construction, and existing construction.
