cisco compatible extentions program (CCX)

Hi every body!

My book says the following:

"Wlan clients may use wireless NIC from a large number of vendors. to help ensure that the clients can work with cisco APs, Cisco started the cisco compatible extentions program."

Let say i want to set up wireless lan using cisco Ap .

Let say i bought a wireless NIC which is CCXv1 certified.

CCXv1 has following features:

basic 802.11 and wi-fi compatibility

802.1x authntication for leap

multple ssids use.

Now i have to find cisco AP with which atleast supports the above mentioned features. Is my concept correct?

Thanks and have a nice day!

HI Zeeshan,

Cisco AP's are backward compatible. Meaning, if you use a AP1130, it can see CCXv1 to CCXv5. You don't need to find a Cisco AP that will support one specific CCX version. On the contrary, CCX versions are dependent on the drivers of your wireless NIC.

By the way, this topic should've gone to the Wireless - Mobility section. Cheers!
