Key Features

  • Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E (802.11ax): The IEEE 802.11ax standard, also known as High-Efficiency Wireless (HEW) or Wi-Fi 6, builds on 802.11ac. It delivers a better experience in typical environments with more predictable performance for advanced applications such as 4K or 8K video; high-density, high-definition collaboration apps; all-wireless offices; and the Internet of Things (IoT). Wi-Fi 6E is Wi-Fi 6 “extended” into the 6-GHz frequency band.  
  • AP power optimizations (AP Power Save mode): AP Power Save mode allows the access point to reduce its power consumption by shutting off radios during off-hours and weekends – while still being smart enough to reengage all features should they be needed. This both saves power and reduces the carbon footprint of running a wireless network.
  • CleanAir Pro: Cisco CleanAir® Pro applies Cisco’s industry-leading RF interference detection and classification to the 2.4-GHz, 5-GHz, and 6-GHz bands.
  • Client Steering: Client steering helps clients that are 6-GHz capable leave the 5-GHz radio and connect to the 6-GHz radio. Wi-Fi 6E clients are automatically directed to connect to the 6-GHz radio to take advantage of the benefits it offers and free up the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radios for legacy clients.
  • Uplink/downlink OFDMA: Orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA)-based scheduling splits the bandwidth into smaller frequency allocations called resource units (RUs), which can be assigned to individual clients in both the downlink and uplink directions to reduce overhead and latency.
  • Uplink/downlink MU‑MIMO technology: Supporting the highest number with 6 spatial streams, multiuser multiple input, multiple output (MU-MIMO) enables the access points to split spatial streams between client devices to maximize throughput.
  • BSS coloring: Spatial reuse (also known as Basic Service Set [BSS] coloring) allow the access points and their clients to differentiate between BSSs, thus permitting more simultaneous transmissions.
  • Target Wake Time: TWT allows the client to stay asleep and to wake up only at prescheduled (target) times to exchange data with the access point. This offers significant energy savings for battery-operated devices, up to three to four times the savings achieved by 802.11n and 802.11ac.
  • Intelligent Capture: Intelligent Capture probes the network and provides Cisco Catalyst Center with deep analysis. The software can track more than 240 anomalies and instantaneously review all packets on demand, emulating the onsite network administrator. Intelligent Capture allows for more informed decisions on your wireless network.
  • Application hosting: Application hosting helps simplify IoT deployments and ready them for the future by eliminating the need to install and manage overlay networks. Using the USB interface, containerized applications and hardware modules can be deployed to reduce cost and complexity. Adding Cisco Catalyst Center provides workflows and deployment-wide application lifecycle management.
  • Bluetooth 5.1: The integrated Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 5.1 radio enables location-based use cases such as asset tracking, wayfinding, and analytics.
  • Self-identifying antenna: The access point is able to read information from antennas that support the Self-Identifying Antenna (SIA) feature and automatically populates antenna gain for plug-and-play antenna configuration.
  • Container support for applications: Container support enables edge computing capabilities for IoT applications on the host access point.
  • Choice of management mode: The Catalyst 9163E can be managed either on-premises with Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controllers or in the cloud through the Meraki dashboard. It gives you the flexibility to deploy the access point in one management mode and shift to a different management mode in the future.

About This Product
The Cisco Wireless 9163E is an outdoor-rated, enterprise-class 802.11ax on-prem or cloud-managed access point. This AP is equipped with Tri-Band concurrent radios geared towards low/medium density applications. It will work with different external antennas for required directivity. 

It features 2x2 Tri-Band traffic radios (2x2 2.4 GHz + 2x2 5 GHz + 2x2 6 GHz), 1x1 Tri-Band scanning radio and a 2.4 GHz IoT radio for (BLE/Zigbee/Thread etc.). It also has an inbuilt GNSS receiver for 6 GHz AFC compliance.
