This Outdoor Access point prominently branded by Cisco is a Cisco Aironet 1520 Series Lightweight Outdoor Access Point, mounted together with a Bosch security camera on a streetlight on Roosevelt Island near the Louis I Kahn designed “Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park.” It is unclear whether the Cisco box is functioning as a networking component for the security camera, or whether it is separately providing network coverage for the area. It is described in Cisco literature as a “flexible, secure mesh platform for demanding environments”, extending “wireless access over large, metro-scale areas, extending into areas where wiring is impractical or cost-prohibitive.”
It broadcasts at 2.4GHz on the 802.11a and 802.11b/g wifi standards, and has the capability to function on a Public safety channel at 4.9 GHz.
