The Cisco Aironet®1300 Series Outdoor Access Point or Bridge (Figure 1) is an 802.11g access point and bridge that provides high-speed
and cost-effective wireless connectivity between multiple fixed or mobile networks and clients. Building a metropolitan-area wireless
infrastructure with the Cisco Aironet 1300 Series provides deployment personnel with a flexible, easy-to-use solution that meets the
security requirements of wide-area networking professionals. The Cisco Aironet 1300 Series can be deployed as an autonomous access
point or bridge, providing intelligent network services as a standalone device. Alternatively, the Cisco Aironet 1300 Series can be deployed
as part of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network, managed centrally by a Cisco wireless LAN controller.
The Cisco Aironet 1300 Series supports the 802.11g standard—providing 54-Mbps data rates with a proven, secure technology while
maintaining full backward compatibility with legacy 802.11b devices. It is delivered in a compact, rugged enclosure for deployment in
outdoor environments, and is available in two versions. The Cisco Aironet 1300 Series with integrated antenna can be quickly installed to
provide a LAN bridge to a remote site or multiple sites. The 1300 Series with antenna connectors supports a variety of Cisco 2.4-GHz
antennas, providing range and coverage versatility.
The Cisco Aironet 1300 Series is available either as part of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network or as an autonomous access point or
bridge. The Cisco Unified Wireless Network is a comprehensive solution that delivers an integrated, end-to-end wired and wireless
network. Using the radio and network management features of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network for simplified deployment, the Cisco
Aironet 1300 Series extends the security, scalability, reliability, ease of deployment, and manageability available in wired networks to the
wireless LAN. Unified access points operate with the Lightweight Access Point Protocol (LWAPP) and work in conjunction with Cisco
wireless LAN controllers and the Wireless Control System (WCS). When configured with LWAPP, the Cisco Aironet 1300 Series can
automatically detect the best-available Cisco wireless LAN controller and download appropriate policies and configuration information
with no hands-on intervention.
