thanks whaykap,

The Cisco Aironet 2600 are good enough for wifi hotspot deployment in airport ?

i'm so lost with all those choices :

● AIR-CAP2602I-x-K9: Dual-band controller-based 802.11a/g/n
● AIR-CAP2602I-xK910: Eco-pack (dual-band 802.11a/g/n) 10 quantity access points
● AIR-SAP2602I-x-K9: Dual-band autonomous 802.11a/g/n
● AIR-SAP2602I-x-K95: Eco-pack (dual-band 802.11a/g/n) 5 quantity access points

The Cisco Aironet 2600e Access Point: Indoor, challenging environments with external antennas
● AIR-CAP2602E-x-K9: Dual-band controller-based 802.11a/g/n
● AIR-CAP2602E-xK910: Eco-pack (dual-band 802.11a/g/n) 10 quantity access points
● AIR-SAP2602E-x-K9: Dual-band autonomous 802.11a/g/n
● AIR-SAP2602E-x-K95: Eco-pack (dual-band 802.11a/g/n) 5 quantity access points

Hi xzeneize10,

it's been alwhile since i've worked with wireless (So anybody if i'm wrong correct me), but i though it is something like this:

AIR-CAP.... For these access-points you'll need a wireless lan controller. On this controller is the configuration made which pushes it to the access points. The controller is the intelligence in this case (It does alot more than only congfiguration)

AIR-SAP.... These are stand alone access points which have each have to be configured manualy

....I has internal antennas. Used for easy open spaces

.....E has external antennas. If you got a "strange" enviroment so you can adjust the antennas or replace the default antennas with stronger ones or directional antennas

Dual-band = one acces point
Eco-Pack = Multiple accespoints
