Hi,


Is it at all possible to provide 802.11a client access on a LAP1522AG-E-K9? As i read the manual it is not possible! Is this true.


Regards

Mikkel


The AP is running 12.4(21a)JA and the WLC 6.0.182.0

If it have any meaning the WCS is running 6.0.132.0

Hello,

A in PN (LAP1522AG-E-K9) means that YES

At cisco.com I found out something like this:

The AIR-LAP1522AG-E-K9 is a dual-band mesh access point that operates in the 2400- to 2483.5-MHz and the 5470- to 5725-MHz frequency range. The AIR-AP1521G-E-K9 only operates in the 2400- to 2483.5-MHz band. The AIR-RM1520G-E-K9 is a 2.4 GHz radio module and the AIR-RM1520A-E-K9 is a 5 GHz radio module.

Hi Mariusz


Thanks for the reply. But if I look in the Getting Started Guide, it says the following:


2 Introduction to the Access Point

The Cisco Aironet 1520 Series Outdoor Mesh Access Point (hereafter called the access point) is a modularized outdoor access point designed for service in mesh networks. The access point can be configured for one or two radio operation. Its 802.11b/g radio is used primarily for local access and its 802.11a radio is used to provide wireless backhaul in the mesh. The access point is LWAPP compliant based on Cisco's Internetwork Operating System (IOS).


With two radios installed, the access point provides client access on its 802.11b/g radio, point-to-point bridging, point-to-multipoint bridging and mesh networking on its 802.11a radio. With one radio installed, the access point provides client access and wireless backhaul over its 802.11b/g radio.


The 5-GHz radio incorporates an Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure (UNII) radio transceiver that can operate in either the Upper ISM 5.8-GHz frequency band or the 4.9-GHz Public Safety Band. The 5-GHz radio on the access point is used for backhaul operations to the controller.




So, yes it is dual-band. But the 5 GHz is only for the backhaul or...?
