A History of Bad Ideas

Cisco 3700: Same Flawed Clip-on Approach


Antenna Compromises
Antenna limited to the surface area of the clip-on module

Manual, costly upgrade


Remove and retrofit every AP. No guarantee of Wave 2 performance

Power Hungry
Inefficient design requires new switches with PoE+ for full 802.11ac radio operation

Modular = Costly
Starting at $1,495 without any modules

Inadequate WAN Uplink


WAN uplink designed for early module; caps performance

Mismatch Components
Older CPU and memory not optimized for future antenna/feature upgrades
