The Aironet 1600 Series Access Point from Cisco is an entry-level 802.11n-based access point designed to address the wireless connectivity needs of small and medium-sized enterprise networks. It provides functionalities such as CleanAir Express for better cover through spectrum intelligence, and Clientlink 2.0 for entry level networks that have a mixed client base. The Aironet 1600 features 802.11n-based 3x3 Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) technology with two spatial streams.

The Aironet 1600 provides six times the throughput of existing 802.11a/g networks. With an entry-level path to 802.11n migration, it can add capacity to the network for future growth for expanding applications and bandwidth. Chipsets and optimized radios deliver mobility experience with 802.11n with 3x3 MIMO technology, Radio resource management, CleanAir Express, Cisco ClientLink 2.0 technology, Cisco VideoStream technology, and Cisco BandSelect technology.
Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) Technology
802.11n with 3x3 MIMO technology with two spatial streams, which sustains 300 Mb/s rates over a greater range for more capacity and reliability than competing access points
Radio Resource Management (RRM)
Automated self-healing optimizes the unpredictability of RF to reduce dead spots and helps to ensure high-availability client connections
CleanAir Express
Effectively detects RF interference and provides basic spectrum analysis capability, while simplifying ongoing operations
Cisco ClientLink 2.0 Technology
Improves downlink performance to all mobile devices including 802.11n, while improving battery life on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets
Cisco BandSelect Technology
Improves 5 GHz client connections in mixed client environments
Cisco VideoStream technology
Uses multicast to improve rich-media applications
The Aironet 1600 is a component of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network, which can scale to up to 18,000 access points with full Layer 3 mobility across central or remote locations on the enterprise campus, in branch offices, and at remote sites.
