Features and Benefits
With 802.11ac Wave 2, the 1830 Series provides a data rate of up to 867 Mbps on the 5-GHz radio, exceeding the
data rates offered by today’s high-end 802.11n access points. It also enables a total aggregate dual-radio data rate
of up to 1 Gbps, providing the necessary foundation for enterprise and service provider networks to stay ahead of
the performance and bandwidth expectations and needs of their wireless users.
Due to its convenience, wireless access is increasingly the preferred form of network connectivity for corporate
users. Along with this shift, there is an expectation that wireless should not slow down users’ day-to-day work, but
should enable a high-performance experience while allowing users to move freely. The 1830 Series delivers
industry-leading performance for highly secure and reliable wireless connections and provides a robust mobility
experience that includes:
● 802.11ac Wave 2 with 3×3 multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology with two spatial streams when
operating in single-user or multiuser MIMO mode, offering 867-Mbps rates for more capacity and reliability
than competing access points.
● Multiuser MIMO (MU-MIMO) allows transmission of data to multiple 802.11ac Wave 2 capable clients
simultaneously to improve client experience. Prior to MU-MIMO, 802.11n and 802.11ac Wave 1 access
points could transmit data to only one client at a time, typically referred to as single-user MIMO.
● Transmit beamforming technology improves downlink performance to mobile devices, including one- and
two-spatial-stream devices on 802.11ac, while improving battery life on mobile devices such as
smartphones and tablets
