I want to build autonomous wireless N network with about 10 indoors AP and 3 Outdoors AP. I have Cisco 3560 PoE switchs. The network will have IP phones. Can you guide me to the right AP to buy.

I forgot to add that I need this deployment to be done ASAP. So much appreciated

Try the following:

For AP's that are geared up for 802.11N (Draft 2.0):

If you are going to choose the 1250, note that the Antennaes are optional. Here's some information regarding them.

The AP1250, when operating with 2 radio modules on Autonomous IOS, requires a minimum of 18.5 watts (ePoE). So you'll need either a Power Injector or PoE switch that will support enhanced PoE such as the 3560-E or 3750-E.

Hope this helps.

Hi Antonio,


Before you begin purchasing the necessary equipment, have you considered conducting a Wireless Site Survey?


With 10 Indoor AP's, would you consider for a Wireless LAN Controller? I'd recommend the WLC-4402-25.

I am using AirMagne for the site survey. Right now I have not budge for the Wireless LAN Controller; so which model of indoor and outdoor AP can I use to build a Autonomous Wireless Network 802.11n with out using a Wireless LAN Controller.

Hi Antonio,

The AP's mentioned above are indoor AP's built for Draft N (2.0 Ratified). Unfortunately, the 1500/1520 and 1300 outdoor Meshed AP are only A/B/G only.
