Cisco 3702e versus 3702p - what is different?

Unanswered Question
Jan 7th, 2014

Does anybody have a link to a list of differences between 3702e and 3702p? Looks like 3702p is suggested for dense deployment but what does that actually mean?

I have this problem too.

Hi Vlad,

  • Cisco Aironet 3700e Access Point used for Indoor, challenging environments, with external antennas

  • Cisco Aironet 3700p Access Point used for high-density environments, with narrow-beamwidth, high-gain, antennas

Both APs:Dual-band controller-based 802.11a/g/n/ac

The "P" access points like the 3502p also is made for stadium , convention center (very high ceiling), and or arena type environments.  We have never used a "p" AP other than stadiums so far.

But what is the actuall difference? Ie narrow beamforming, more clients supported, can use colla to clean the poprorn off the plate - is there anything measurable?

Antennas. There is one specific antenna made for the 'P'.

Can you please specify the partnumber of the antenna made for P series?

I am also trying to find the appropriate antenna for 3702P...

HI Arun,

The 3700p is stadium only and require the stadium antenna and I don't  see that listed yet. Take a look at the 3500p as those are also stadium  and uses only the stadium antennas.

Hi Sandeep and Scott,

Thank you very much....

Just remember that there is a place for the 3702p... Really for stadium, arenas and very high density areas. The 3702i and 3702e's should be used in all other locations.
