The DWL-3600AP Wireless N Unified Access Point from D-Link is an indoor 802.11n Wi-Fi Access Point designed specifically for deployment in business environments. It is highly manageable and capable of high data transmission speeds. The DWL-3600AP integrates seamlessly into an existing network infrastructure and can be easily scaled up to meet future demands.
The DWL-3600AP's 2x 2 MIMO 2.4 GHz radio frequency delivers up to 300 Mbps* of network throughput. Additionally, RadioProtect technology ensures all users receive an adequate level of service even in an environment where many users are accessing the network through 802.11b and 802.11g devices.
* 300 Mbps is the maximum wireless signal rate as specified by the IEEE 802.11n standard. Actual data throughput will vary. The network and other factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials, and nearby radio interference may lower actual data throughput.
The DWL-3600AP features a self-configuring cluster. When a small number of DWL-3600APs are deployed on the network, they may be configured to form a self-configuring cluster. Once the administrator is through with configuring one AP, the same configuration can then be applied to all remaining APs. Up to 16 APs may be used to form a cluster.
When deployed in conjunction with D-Link's Wireless Controller, DWC-1000, up to 24 DWL-3600AP units may be centrally managed and provisioned, thus enabling the administrator to expand the Wi-Fi network to cover a large area.
The DWL-3600AP supports the latest standards in Wi-Fi security, including WPA, WPA2, and 802.1X. In addition, the DWL-3600AP supports up to 16 Virtual APs (VAP), which allows the administrator to assign different access privileges to different groups of users. When used together with D-Link's Wireless Controller, DWC-1000, security can be raised to a new level. Rogue APs in the network may be easily detected, and the administrator will be immediately notified of any security threat.
Automatic Radio Frequency (RF) Management
When a number of APs are deployed close to each other, interference may occur if proper Radio Frequency (RF) management is not implemented. When a DWL-3600AP senses a neighbor AP at startup it will automatically select a non-interfering channel. This significantly reduces RF interference and will allow the administrator to deploy APs more densely. To further minimize interference, when a nearby AP is operating on the same channel, the DWL-3600AP will automatically lower its transmission power. When the neighbor AP is no longer present, the DWL-3600AP will increase its transmit power to expand coverage.
Quality of Service
The DWL-3600AP is WMM-certified, so in the event of network congestion, time-sensitive traffic can be given priority ahead of the rest of traffic. Furthermore, when a number of DWL-3600APs are in close proximity with each other, an will refuse new association requests once its resources are fully utilized. Instead, the association request will be picked up by a neighboring unit. This feature ensures that no single AP is overburdened while nearby APs remain idle.
Third Party Support
The DWL-3600AP supports AirMagnet software solutions for planning, designing and troubleshooting wireless networks for optimal performance, security and compliance. The AirMagnet calculates the ideal quantity, placement and configuration of APs for a successful WLAN deployment. It also allows IT administrators to test and diagnose wireless performance issues. Additionally, a RFID-based location tracking system is supported with Aeroscout technology. Aeroscout allows tracking of persons, objects and assets by means of RFID tags which have built-in location capabilities. This is especially useful within healthcare, manufacturing and security sectors.
This AP features load balancing to optimize high network traffic volume and redundancy.
It has 802.11n connectivity for increased network capacity.
It can be easily mounted on a wall. The 802.3af PoE enables installation at hard-to-reach locations too.
