Ideal for smaller networks, the Cisco® Business 140AC Access Point brings a full slate of Cisco high-performance functionality to the business environment.
The Cisco Business 140AC Access Point delivers industry-leading wireless performance with support for the latest Wi-Fi standard, IEEE’s 802.11ac Wave 2 (Figure 1). It also meets the growing flexibility requirements of wireless networks by introducing mesh technology—all while delivering a simple user experience.
The 140AC access point extends coverage and capacity to Wi-Fi clients such as smartphones, tablets, and high-performance laptops that have integrated 802.11ac Wave 1 or Wave 2 support.
By adhering to the 802.11ac Wave 2 standard, the Cisco Business 140AC Access Point delivers a data rate of up to 867 Mbps on its 5-GHz radio. This exceeds the data rates offered by access points that support the 802.11n standard. It also enables a total aggregate dual-radio data rate of up to 1 Gbps, providing the necessary foundation to stay ahead of the performance expectations and needs of wireless users.
In recent years, small businesses have increasingly preferred wireless access as the principal form of network connectivity. Along with this shift, there is an expectation that wireless should enable a high-performance experience. The Cisco Business 140AC Access Point delivers industry-leading performance for highly secure and reliable wireless connections, for a optimal end-user experience.
Increased wireless performance and coverage, featuring mesh technology
The Cisco Business 140AC Access Point supports the latest 802.11ac Wave 2 standard for higher performance, greater coverage, and higher-density networks. With simultaneous dual radios and dual bands with 802.11ac Wave 2 MU-MIMO functionality, this access point can handle the increasing number of high-bandwidth devices and applications that will soon become a common part of the network.
Integrated mesh technology enables deployment flexibility that is simple and secure. You can easily expand coverage and capacity using Cisco Business wireless mesh extenders, which include models that can be placed on a desktop, plugged into an AC electrical outlet, or mounted directly to a wall.
Cisco Business Mobile app
The Cisco Business 140AC Access Point is managed by the Cisco Business Mobile app, an intuitive client application that simplifies traditional challenges associated with wireless network deployment, right from your mobile device. You can easily extend your network by adding new mesh extenders using Quick Response (QR) codes and wireless network activation in minutes. A robust management capability dynamically changes network configuration such as enabling secure guest access. Network usage, traffic patterns, and network throughput can be closely monitored, providing a real-time snapshot; this not only provides peace of mind, it virtually ensures optimal user experience. The Cisco Business Mobile app is available for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.
Power over Ethernet
The Cisco Business 140AC Access Point features a single Gigabit Ethernet uplink port and is powered by Power over Ethernet (802.3af PoE standard).
This sleek, compact access point is designed with flexible mounting options in mind. You can mount it directly on the ceiling (including T-bar rail mounting) or a wall. It is easy to install, and the mounting hardware is included.
