Cisco Catalyst 9117 Series

The Cisco® Catalyst® 9117 Series Access Points are the next generation of enterprise access points. They are resilient, secure, and intelligent.


Hyperconnectivity with steady performance in demanding environments.

  • The IEEE 802.11ax emerging standard, also known as High-Efficiency Wireless (HEW) or Wi-Fi 6, builds on 802.11ac
  • Provides a connection rate of up to 3.5 Gbps—significantly higher than rates offered by today’s high-end 802.11ac
  • OFDMA-based scheduling splits the bandwidth into smaller chunks called Resource Units (RUs), which can be allocated to individual clients only in the downlink direction to reduce overhead and latency
  • Supporting eight spatial streams, MU-MIMO enables access points to split spatial streams between client devices
  • A new power savings mode called Target Wake Time (TWT) allows the client to stay asleep and to wake up only at prescheduled (target) times to exchange data with the AP
  • The Cisco Embedded Wireless Controller on Catalyst 9100 Access Points provides an easy-to-deploy and manage option that does not require a physical appliance
  • A feature available in Cisco DNA Center, allows IT to give end users control of their very own wireless network partition
  • Application Hosting on Catalyst 9100 Access Points helps future-proof and simplify IoT deployments by eliminating the need to install and manage overlay networks
  • Provides uplink speeds of 5 Gbps, in addition to 100 Mbps and 1 Gbps
  • Integrated Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 5.0 radio to enable IoT use cases such as location tracking and wayfinding
