Multiuser (MU) multiple-input multiple-output (MU-MIMO) allows simultaneous data transmission to multiple 802.11ac Wave 2–
capable clients to improve the client experience. Prior to MU-MIMO, 802.11n and 802.11ac Wave 1 access points could transmit
data to only one client at a time. This was typically referred to as single-user MIMO (SU-MIMO).
Gigabit Ethernet ports
Three local Gigabit Ethernet ports are available to securely connect wired devices to the network. Traffic from wired devices can
be tunneled back to a wireless LAN controller (for compatible controllers) or be locally switched by the access point. One of these
Ethernet ports can also provide Power over Ethernet (PoE) out to power a device such as an IP phone or a security camera.
Cisco Mobility Express solution
Flexible deployment through the Cisco Mobility Express solution is ideal for small to medium-sized deployments that require 50 or
fewer access points. Easy setup allows the 1815w to be deployed on networks without a physical controller.
