1 Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE standard 802.11 and 802.11ac specifications. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, and network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors may adversely affect wireless signal range.
2 Number of wireless access points supported depends on the specification of the computer on which DNC is installed. To support 1000 APs, a computer with at least an Intel Core i7 with 16 GB RAM and 4 TB hard drive, and 20 Mbps uplink bandwidth is recommended. To support 100 APs, a computer  with at least an Intel Core i5 3.2GHz with 8 GB RAM and 2 TB hard drive, and 10 Mbps uplink bandwidth is recommended.
3 Maximum of 1,000 APs is for software controlled. DNH-100 has a maximum capacity of 100 APs per hub.
