Cisco Aironet 1242 AIR-AP1242AG-A-K9 802.11g Wrls Product Details
Cisco Aironet 1242 AIR-AP1242AG-A-K9 802.11g Wireless Access Point
The Cisco Aironet 1242 AIR-AP1242AG-A-K9 802.11g Wireless Access Point delivers the versatility, high capacity, security, and enterprise-class features demanded by WLAN customers. This IEEE 802.11a/g access point is designed specifically for challenging RF environments such as factories, warehouses, and large retail establishments that require the antenna versatility associated with connectorized antennas, a rugged metal enclosure, and a broad operating temperature range. The Cisco Aironet 1242 AIR-AP1242AG-A-K9 802.11g Wireless Access Point provides local as well as inline power, including support for IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE).
The Cisco Aironet 1242 AIR-AP1242AG-A-K9 802.11g Wireless Access Point supports 802.11i, Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), WPA2, and numerous Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) types. WPA and WPA2 are the Wi-Fi Alliance certifications for interoperable, standards-based WLAN security. These certifications support IEEE 802.1X for user-based authentication, Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) for WPA encryption, and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) for WPA2 encryption, helping to ensure interoperability between Wi-Fi-certified WLAN devices from different manufacturers.
Cisco Aironet 1240AG Series Access Points feature antenna connectors for greater range and coverage versatility using a broad selection of available Cisco antennas, as well as a rugged metal housing for operation over extended temperature ranges typical of industrial environments. Dual 802.11a and 802.11g radios offer a combined capacity of 108 Mbps, meeting the performance requirements of the most demanding applications, while hardware-assisted AES encryption provides uncompromised support for interoperable IEEE 802.11i and WPA2 security. The Cisco Aironet 1242 AIR-AP1242AG-A-K9 802.11g Wireless Access Point delivers enterprise-class features for challenging RF environments.What It Is and Why You Need It
- Management Frame Protection
This feature provides for the authentication of 802.11 management frames by the wireless network infrastructure. This allows the network to detect spoofed frames from access points or malicious users impersonating infrastructure access points. If an access point detects a malicious attack, an incident will be generated by the access points.
- Both Local and Inline Power Supported
Power can be supplied using the Ethernet cable, eliminating the need for costly electrical power line runs to remotely installed access points. The access points can be powered by IEEE 802.3af PoE, Cisco inline power switches, single port power injectors, or local power.
- Link-Role Flexibility
Autonomous access points can function as an access point or bridge, whether set up as a single-band or dual-band platform, allowing each radio to be individually configured as an access point repeater, root bridge, non-root bridge, or workgroup bridge, enabling a broad array of applications.
- Cisco Unified IDS/IPS
This integrated software feature is part of the Cisco Self-Defending Network and is the industry's first integrated wired and wireless security solution. When a trusted client acts maliciously, the wired IDS detects the attack and sends shun requests to Cisco WLAN controllers, which will then disassociate the client device.
