The Unified Wireless Gigabit 24 Port PoE L2+ Switch with 12 AP License from D-Link is designed to be the ideal mobility solution for medium-sized and large enterprises and service providers. It empowers administrators to exercise total control over their wireless networks by centralizing all aspects of provisioning and management. This switch is able to manage up to 48 D-Link Unified Access Points by itself and up to 192 in a Peer Group. It can be configured to act either as a Wireless Controller in the core network and as an L2+ Gigabit Switch at the edge that enables it to be seamlessly integrated into any existing network infrastructure.

Simplified Management
The 24 Port PoE L2+ Switch is able to centralize all critical WLAN management, thereby eliminating the need to manage access points individually. The administrator simply assigns a profile to an individual D-Link Unified Access Point and the configuration corresponding to that profile would be applied onto that access point automatically. Additionally it can apply new firmware to all D-Link Unified Access Points on the network, thus greatly simplifying the upgrade process.

The Unified Wireless Gigabit PoE L2+ Switch also excels as an advanced L2+ switch. It is the complete package with RIPv1/v2 dynamic routing, ACL security, multi-layer QoS, comprehensive VLAN support as well as Multicast Snooping capabilities. This switch enables easy and flexible deployment. Furthermore, multiple 24 Port PoE L2+ Switch can form a Peer Group, which enables the administrator to configure all switches from one Peer Group Master. The number of D-Link Unified Access Points being managed as the size of the Peer Group grows. Up to 192 D-Link Unified Access Points may be managed by a Peer Group. This helps to significantly simplify management and reduce maintenance efforts when a network is scaled up

Trusted Security
Intrusion Detection System (WIDS), which empowers administrators to detect Rogue Access Points and Rogue Clients, effectively prevents them from causing damage to the network. The administrator can also activate various threat detections and use Radio Frequency Scan to sweep the entire wireless network to identify any possible security breach in advance.

When working in conjunction with D-Link Unified Access Points, Virtual Access Points may be easily configured and managed. This allows the administrator to assign different access privileges to different classes of users. Additionally to WPA and WPA2, an added measure of protection is added with an advanced captive portal, thus enabling only authorized users to utilize the wireless network. On the wired side, this switch utilizes Access Control Lists to tightly control what goes in and out of the network by setting up a number of simple rules.

Along with other advanced security features, such as 802.1X Network Access Control and advanced Denial-of-Service Protection, the 24 Port PoE L2+ Switch provides robust and centralized security that ensures maximum network reliability.

Network Resiliency
When a number of access points are deployed close to each other, interference may result if proper RF management is not implemented. The Unified Wireless Gigabit PoE L2+ Switch has feature of how the radio spectrum is being utilized in the network and will automatically assign the most optimized channel to each access point under its management. This greatly reduces RF interference and will allow the administrator to deploy APs more densely.

To further minimize interference, the PoE L2+ Switch also can adjust the transmit power of each radio independently. When there is no longer so many access points present, transmission power will be increased to expand network coverage. To ensure that no access point is overburdened while others sit idle, this switch will prevent certain D-Link Unified Access Points from accepting new association requests if its resources are fully utilized. A neighboring D-Link Unified Access Point will instead pick up the load. This ensures that proper load balancing is in place and the network will function in the most optimal state.

Seamless Mobility
Wireless clients can enjoy seamless and uninterrupted roaming from AP to AP if they are managed by the same PoE L2+ Switch, even if they are not in the same subnet. Because this switch employs various mechanisms such as pre-authentication and key caching, wireless users can freely roam the entire network without needing to re-authenticate. This allows tablet and smart phone and net book computer users to travel freely within any premise covered by the 24 Port PoE L2+ Switch's managed APs without having to worry about network connectivity, thus enabling for a truly mobile workplace.
Secure and Reliable
The Unified Wireless Gigabit PoE L2+ Switch supports RADIUS based authentication, with or without a captive portal. It also supports L3 tunneling allowing roaming across different L2 network.
