As business applications become more powerful and sophisticated, organizations are looking for new ways to extend
the performance and reach of their office networks. Delivering secure, high-speed wireless connectivity to
employees, partners, and guests anywhere in the office is key. The Cisco WAP321 Wireless-N Selectable-Band
Access Point with Single Point Setup makes it easy to deliver advanced 802.11n wireless networking with
business-class features - at an affordable price. This flexible solution is perfect for connecting up to 20
employees on a single WAP321. With Single Point Setup, the wireless LAN can scale up to a total of eight WAP321
devices to provide broader coverage and to support additional users as business needs change.
Built specifically for small businesses, the Cisco WAP321 offers selectable-band 802.11n wireless technology to
deliver high throughput and extended range throughout your office. Advanced quality-of-service (QoS) features let
you prioritize traffic to support bandwidth-sensitive applications. This sophisticated control enables you to take
advantage of voice over WLAN (VoWLAN) to place or receive calls over the wireless LAN infrastructure.
Designed for growing organizations, the Cisco WAP321 offers the ability to smoothly scale your network by bridging
wired LANs together wirelessly, to reduce cabling and installation costs. It supports multiple Service Set
Identifiers (SSIDs) to enable you to segregate traffic for different departments, users, and communication devices.
For companies that need to provide secure wireless guest access, the Cisco WAP321 offers captive portal support
that lets you create a wireless hotspot with visitor authentication.
The Cisco WAP321 is simple to set up and use, with intuitive wizard-based configuration to get you up and running
in minutes. A sleek, compact design with flexible mounting options enables the access point to smoothly blend into
any small business environment. Power over Ethernet (PoE) support makes the device easy to install without the
need for separate power plugs or expensive new wiring.
To enhance reliability and safeguard sensitive business information data, the Cisco WAP321 supports WiFi Protected
Access (WPA2), encoding all your wireless transmissions with powerful encryption. 802.1X RADIUS authentication
helps keep unauthorized users out. Single Point Setup is a controllerless multi-access point deployment technology
that allows you to deploy and manage multiple access points in a simple and cost-effective way across your premises.
Single Point Setup provides a unique centralized method to administer and control wireless services across multiple
devices. Via one access point on the LAN, you have a single view of the whole WLAN to replicate configuration,
security, and management across all access points.
With the Cisco WAP321, you can build on your existing network to deliver high-performance wireless access with the
scalability you need as your business grows and evolves.
