Will WAP 121 supports Dual Band WiFi clients..Need documentation...

Hi Team, 

Working for the one of the Hotel project where we have considered WAP121 AP's for the wireless coverage part. WAP supports only single band. Now in a days their are dual band WiFi clients (iPhones, Anroide base smart phones -which supports dual band) are available.  Need supporting document about that WAP 121 supports all the Dual band wifi clients.   



Hello sdevesh,The WAP121 is

Hello sdevesh,

The WAP121 is not dual-band, it is 2.4Ghz only.  The best place to look for this kind of information is on the product's datasheet, I have linked them all to the model names in this post.  We do have several APs that are dual-band.

The WAP321 and WAP551 have selectable band, they can do either 2.4 or 5.0Ghz.

The WAP561 can do concurrent dual-band, 2.4 and 5.0 at the same time.

I will say I have not seen very many 5.0Ghz only devices, and 5.0 does not travel through walls quite as well, so it may not make that much of a difference overall, however I understand having client requirements.

Thank you for choosing Cisco,
