  • 1Description
The D-Link Unified Wireless PoE Access Point is the latest Unified Access Point with IEEE 802.11n standard. It is manageable from a wireless switch as this access point works as a standalone "fit" wireless Access Point (AP) and also as a "thin" managed Access Point.  This powerful AP, loaded with many security features, offers advanced Wireless LAN functions. Moreover, you can migrate to a centrally managed system anytime by integrating this access point with a D-Link unified wired/wireless switch.
Ideal for Business
•Dual band connectivity for increased network capacity
•Concurrent operation in both 802.11a/n & 802.11b/g/n at full bandwidth speeds
•Solid die cast metal housing design for indoor deployment
High-Performance Connectivity
•Four detachable antennas ensure maximum coverage
•Self-tuning features to adjust and optimize RF settings
•Load balancing among neighbor AP
•Supports auto fallback data rates
Trusted Security Features
•64/128-bit WEP Data Encryption
•WPA/WPA2 Personal
•WPA/WPA2 Enterprise
•802.1X User Authentication
•802.1Q VLAN Tagging for network segmentation
•MAC address filtering
•Rogue AP Detection & Mitigation
•16 SSID per Frequency Band, 32 total Per AP
Blazing Wireless Speeds
IEEE 802.11n offers up to six times increased throughput when compared with existing 802.11a/g networks. The access point is also fully backwards compatible with 802.11a/b/g clients and allows them for a 2x2:2 configurations with two Tx and Rx streams for each radio. Multiple In Multiple Out (MIMO) and wider bandwidth channels increase physical transfer rates while using 802.11. MIMO allows for more information to be coherently resolved by using several antennas instead of a single antenna. By employing this access point today, you can prepare your business for the future generation of wireless devices and mobile applications
Green Technology and Advanced Power Saving
The DWL-8600AP features scheduled and unscheduled Automatic Power Save Delivery (APSD). Unscheduled APSD (U-APSD) is a power management method that is more efficient than older 802.11 Power Save Polling. The primary benefit of U-APSD is that it allows for the voice client to synchronize the transmission and reception of voice frames with the AP, thereby allowing the client to go into power saving mode when not sending or receiving packets. The DWL-8600AP is fully compliant with 802.3af even when operating at maximum power. Unlike 802.11n Access Points from other manufacturers that require PoE+ or 802.3at when enabling both radios, the DWL-8600AP thus showcases D-Link's continuous commitment to green technology
Self Configuration and Easy Installation
When operating in conjunction with a DWS-4026 switch, the switch automatically configures every connected "thin" DWL-8600AP so no configuration is necessary during installation. If a DWL-8600AP needs to be replaced, the replacement DWL-8600AP automatically inherits the same configuration, making the replacement process a simpler one
Intelligent "Fit" Access Point
The DWL-8600AP has everything on board that enables network administrators to set up a secure wireless network and to connect to any Ethernet compliant switch and router. Advanced wireless functions that the DWL-8600AP supports include: WEP data encryption, WPA/WPA2 security, client MAC address filtering, AP load balancing, QoS/WMM (Wireless Multimedia), and Rogue AP Detection. Security configuration settings can be locally stored on the DWL-8600AP itself. Wireless connections can easily be expanded by adding more DWL-8600APs or other 802.11a/g/n compliant APs to the site. With AP Clustering, up to eight APs can form a cluster for convenient management and configuration of all APs. Businesses without complicated network requirements can use the DWL-8600AP to get a wireless network set up and running without the need for any additional special hardware
Thin" AP Centrally Managed From Unified Wired/Wireless Switch
Alternatively, the DWL-8600AP can operate in conjunction with a D-Link DWS-4026 unified wired/wireless switch. In this mode, multiple DWL-8600APs can connect directly or indirectly to a DWS-4026 to provide unparalleled security and wireless mobility for wireless clients. Each DWL-8600AP will be continually tuned by these switches to provide optimal Radio Frequency (RF) channels and transmission power for all mobile clients, giving them the best wireless signals in both 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz bands and uninterrupted wireless connectivity.
Flexible Dual Band Wireless LAN Connectivity
The DWL-8600AP delivers concurrent wireless performance and maximum wireless signal rates in both frequency bands simultaneously. With dual band connectivity, two wireless networks are created both running at full bandwidth speeds, offering a significant increase in total network capacity. At the same time, the DWL-8600AP remains fully backward compatible with the 802.11b standard in the 2.4GHz frequency
Optimal Wireless Performance
The architecture of most current wireless LAN controllers requires wireless traffic to return to the controller for centralized processing, providing unnecessary traffic delay. The DWL-8600AP, when operating with a DWS-4026 switch, offers administrators extra options. Depending on the wireless application, wireless traffic can either be tunneled back to the switch for better security control or locally forwarded at the Access Point for optimal performance. This device offers administrators maximized flexibility with options to tunnel guest traffic to the switch for centralized security control, and forward VoIP traffic delivery from the Access Point for optimal performance. The DWL-8600AP furthermore supports AP Clustering and Wireless Distribution System (WDS). WDS allows for the AP to act as a wireless bridge, connecting two different networks to each other without the need for a cable
Total Security & Quality of Service
The DWL-8600AP continuously scans both frequency bands and their associated channels to detect rogues while simultaneously providing wireless connectivity to mobile clients. If a rogue is detected, it reports the result to the DWS-4026 wireless switch that manages it. From a management console, administrators can identify the rogue AP and take appropriate action. The DWL-8600AP supports 64/128-bit WEP data encryption, WPA/WPA2 security and multiple SSID per RF band. Connected to the DWS-4026 switch, these functions along with wireless user MAC Address Filtering and SSID Broadcast Disable can be used to set up security and limit outsiders' access to the internal network. The DWL-8600AP supports 802.1Q VLAN Tagging and WMM (Wi-Fi Multimedia) for important wireless transmissions such as VoIP and streaming media applications, delivering critical user-based services, such as prioritized delivery of voice traffic.
