The Cisco Aironet® 5 GHz 54 Mbps Wireless LAN client adapter is an Institute of
Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) 802.11a-compliant CardBus adapter that
operates in the UNII-1 and UNII-2 bands. The client adapter combines performance
and mobility with the security and manageability that enterprises require.
Wireless LAN client adapters can increase productivity by enabling mobile users to have
network and Internet access anywhere within a building that is equipped with a wireless network
infrastructure. Wireless client adapters connect a variety of devices to a wireless network either in
ad hoc peer-to-peer mode or in infrastructure mode with access points. With this client adapter,
you can quickly add new employees to a network, support temporary workgroups, or enable
Internet access in conference rooms or other meeting spaces (Figure 1). And the Cisco Aironet
client solution is easy to use, making the benefits of wireless mobility completely transparent.
The Cisco Aironet 5 GHz Wireless LAN Client Adapter is part of the award-winning Cisco Wireless
Security Suite, which supports WPA and numerous Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP)
types. WPA is the Wi-Fi Alliance certification for interoperable, standards-based WLAN security.
These certifications support IEEE 802.1X for user-based authentication, Temporal Key Integrity
Protocol (TKIP) for WPA encryption. These certifications help to ensure interoperability between
Wi-Fi-certified WLAN devices from different manufacturers.
