Throughput and capacity of Cisco Wi-Fi Access Points

Hi all,

Please does anyone have an idea the maximum throughput utilization of Cisco Wi-Fi Access points ? either the outdoor or indoor access point. I surely believe there is a maximum limit to the number of downloads that can be made from a single AP but its pretty much not on any AP you buy from Cisco.

Thanks all for contributing

Throughput and capacity of Cisco Wi-Fi Access Points

You're going to need to be more specific. They make about a million different models.

For example, the 1140 series has specific throughput information in the product data sheet here: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/wireless/ps5678/ps10092/datasheet_c78-502793.html

The 1500 is a lightweight AP that is designed to work in a mesh with a controller system so its specs are highly dependent on the controller setup and network design. Here is the design guide for it: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/technology/mesh/design/guide/MeshAP.html

The 1505 and 1510 are end of life I think but here is a data sheet for it from some other site. Cisco makes it a pain to find data sheets on EOL equipment sometimes: http://www.abetech.com/Files/proserv%20pdf%27s/accesspointcisco1500series.pdf

The 3500 is sort of similar but newer I think and has the ability to work with the unified controller system from cisco. Here is the data sheet for it:

Throughput and capacity of Cisco Wi-Fi Access Points

Hi Jonathan,

Can I ask, in general, is there a fixed limit to the number of clients that can be associated to a Cisco 3500 series or 1500 series Access Point ? Also can load balancing via throughput usage rather than number of clients associated to an Access Point be configured on these Access Points ?

Thanks
