Cisco launches new 802.11n AP

Cisco launched a new dual-radio 802.11n wireless access point called the Aironet 1140 Series, that uses 802.3af Power over Ethernet to offer throughput high enough to integrate high-quality voice, video and rich media across networks.

The access point also takes advantage of a system-wide feature upgrade it calls M-Drive Technology, which features ClientLink software, a beam-forming technology designed to improve the throughput of existing 802.11a/g devices. Cisco said M-Drive will allow businesses to improve coverage and capacity while simplifying wireless management. Cisco said an independent test from Miercom found the ClientLink software demonstrated a throughput increase of up to 65 percent for 802.11a/g devices.
