Product overview

In today’s dynamic business environment, employees are becoming more mobile and collaborative than ever. Businesses are now depending on cloud applications like Office 365 or Gmail. To stay productive, they need reliable, and fast wireless network to access mission critical applications with no delays. The Cisco WAP125 Wireless-AC Dual Band Desktop Access Point with PoE provide a simple, cost-effective and secure wireless networking to your employees and guests, so they can have the best experience to stay connected anywhere in the office. This flexible solution lets you connect dozens of employees, and can scale to accommodate additional users and changing business needs.

The WAP125 access point uses concurrent dual-band radio for improved coverage on mobile devices. A Gigabit Ethernet LAN interface with PoE supports flexible installation and can reduce cabling and wiring costs. Intelligent Quality-of-Service (QoS) features let you prioritize bandwidth-sensitive traffic for Voice over IP (VoIP) and video applications.

To provide highly secure guest WiFi access to visitors and other users, the WAP125 access point supports a captive portal with multiple authentication options and the ability to configure rights, roles, and bandwidth. A customized guest login page lets you present a welcome message and access details, and reinforces your brand with company logos. The WAP125 access point also offers support for 3rd party cloud managed guest WiFi services allowing you to control internet access for guests and give your customers a better guest WiFi experience.

The WAP125 access point is easy to set up and use, with intuitive and mobile friendly wizard-based configuration to get you up and running in minutes. An attractive, compact design with integrated stand allows the access point to be placed on a desk or other flat surface.

To enhance reliability and safeguard sensitive business information, the WAP125 access point supports both Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) Personal and Enterprise, encoding all your wireless transmissions with powerful encryption. In addition, 802.1X RADIUS authentication helps keep unauthorized users out.

The WAP125 access point is now integrated with Cisco Umbrella to protect employee and guest WiFi against web threats such as malware, ransomware and more.
