Oberon Professional WiFi Installation Solutions for Cisco Wireless Access Points

by Teddi Strassburger on April 12, 2017

WiFi access points are everywhere. Integrating them into building environments is a challenge for integrators and contractors.

The default method for installing wireless access points (APs) is clipping them onto the ceiling grid or rail. Mounting the AP in the ceiling is ideal from a wireless coverage standpoint, but having the AP hanging off the grid is becoming less acceptable, as it appears to be an "unfinished" installation. Many end users, building owners, architects and installers are demanding a more professional, secure and aesthetic wireless AP solution.

Sometimes, the end user will suggest the AP be mounted above the ceiling so it is not visible. Leading enterprise AP vendors Cisco and Aruba, however, recommend the AP not be mounted above the ceiling, as this will degrade signal performance and potentially lead to increased signal interference between APs above the ceiling. Wireless designers generally recommend against mounting APs above the ceiling for these performance reasons. It is also more difficult to diagnose and service the access point when above the ceiling. APs can also be mounted on the wall when ceilings are too high or not convenient, but since the AP's antennas are designed to be mounted in the ceiling on the "horizontal" orientation, the direct wall mount does not properly position the AP for the optimum wireless coverage. 

In many cases, the wireless designer and installer is tasked with incorporating WiFi in a venue comprised of many types of ceilings and walls, with suspended ceiling tiles of different textures, colors and ages, hard ceilings and walls, open ceilings and challenging environments. Oberon has taken cues from the architectural lighting world and designed products which install somewhat like recessed lighting (in ceilings) or attractive wall fixtures for surface mounting APs on walls. Oberon offers the widest selection of professional AP installation solutions for virtually any venue.
