The purpose of the paper is to show that the Mobile Access access pod and the Cisco Aironet access point can share the same Cisco WLAN infrastructure including the CAT-5e/6 cable run while each solution maintains complete functional performance. Mobile Access is a Cisco Developer Networks partner with Cisco Systems and the MobileAccessVE solution is available through SolutionsPlus. The MobileAccessVE solution cost-effectively provides in building cellular coverage over category 5/6 cables. The solution components primarily consist of the Control Unit (VCU) which is a Head-End element that interfaces with the Service Provider's RF capacity source and Access Pods (VAP) which provide indoor distributed RF cellular coverage. CAT-5e/6 Ethernet cable distributes analog signals from the VCU to the VAP and vice-versa.
