The Cisco® Aironet® 1040 Series Access Point is an enterprise-class, entry-level 802.11n access point designed to address the wireless connectivity needs of small and medium-sized enterprises.
Business Ready 802.11n Performance
With 2x2 multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology providing at least six times the throughput of existing 802.11a/g networks, the Cisco Aironet 1040 Series offers the performance advantage of 802.11n enterprise-class quality at an entry-level price for small and medium-sized enterprises.
As part of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network, the 1040 Series provides low total cost of ownership and investment protection by integrating seamlessly with the existing network.
Building on the Cisco Aironet heritage of RF excellence, the 1040 Series delivers secure and reliable wireless connections. Enterprise-class chipsets and optimized radios deliver a robust mobility experience with:
- Optimized antenna and radio designs: Consistent network transmit and receive for optimized rate versus range
- Radio resource management (RRM): Automated self-healing optimizes the unpredictability of RF to reduce dead spots and help ensure high-availability client connections
Designed for sustainability, the Cisco Aironet 1040 Series offers 802.11n performance with standard 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE). At only 12.95 watts of power, the 1040 Series combines the power of dual-radio 802.11n with the efficiency of standard PoE. The sleek industrial design of the 1040 Series blends seamlessly into any indoor enterprise environment.
For quicker staging and installation, you can order the 1040 Series in multiunit eco-packs, which offer 10 controller-based or 5 standalone access points in a single, easy-to-open carton. Eco-packs reduce product packaging by 50 percent, preserving natural resources and reducing emissions. By eliminating unnecessary components and offering digital instead of paper documentation, the 1040 Series eco-packs will save over 2200 trees per year, which is equal to the amount of power required to heat over 65 homes for an entire year.
The Cisco Aironet 1040 Series is a component of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network, which can scale to up to 18,000 access points with full Layer 3 mobility across central or remote locations on the enterprise campus, in branch offices, and at remote sites.
