In today's dynamic business environment; employees are becoming more mobile and collaborative than ever. To stay productive; they need dependable; business-class access to network applications throughout the office. The Cisco WAP361 Wireless-AC/N Dual Radio Wall Plate Access Points with Power over Ethernet (PoE) provide a simple; cost-effective way to extend highly secure; high-performance mobile networking to your employees and guests; so they can stay connected anywhere in the office regardless of what mobile devices they use. This flexible solution lets you connect dozens of employees; and can scale to accommodate additional users and changing business needs.

The WAP361 access point uses a concurrent dual-band radio for improved coverage and user capacity. The 2x2 multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology with two spatial streams allows the access point to run at maximum performance in both 5.0-GHz and 2.4-GHz frequencies. Gigabit Ethernet LAN interfaces with PoE facilitates flexible installation and can reduce cabling and wiring costs. Intelligent quality-of-service (QoS) features let you prioritize bandwidth-sensitive traffic for voice over IP (VoIP) and video applications.

To provide highly secure guest access to visitors and other users; the WAP361 Wireless-AC/N access point supports a captive portal with multiple authentication options and the ability to configure rights; roles; and bandwidth. A customized guest login page lets you present a welcome message and access details; and reinforces your brand with company logos.

WAP361 access points are easy to set up and use; with an intuitive wizard-based configuration to get you up and running in minutes. An attractive design with flexible mounting options allows the access points to blend well into any small-business environment.

To enhance reliability and safeguard sensitive business information; WAP361 access points support both Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) Personal and Enterprise; encoding all your wireless transmissions with powerful encryption. In addition; 802.1X RADIUS authentication helps keep unauthorized users out.

Designed to scale smoothly as your organization grows; the access points feature controller-less Single Point Setup; which simplifies the deployment of multiple access points without additional hardware. With a WAP361 access point; you can extend business-class wireless networking to employees and guests anywhere in the office; with the flexibility to meet new business needs for years to come.
