Dual-Band Wireless for efficient performance

The 2.4 GHz and high-speed 5 GHz AC channels and band steering technology makes your business network flexible by automatically placing clients on the optimal band for their needs like casual web browsing, and data-hungry operations like video streams and large file transfers.

Increase network speeds and efficiency, efficiently.

Load-balancing optimisation effectively eliminates the need for the dedicated hardware and RF expertise that would otherwise typically be required to tune a wireless network.

  • Seamless roaming
  • Airtime Fairness
  • High-Density Connectivity

Rugged & Weather-Resistant For Installation Anywhere

The AP’s IP67-rated weatherproof housing safeguards against dust and water so it can operate in harsh outdoor environments ranging from temperatures from -40°C up to 60°C. PoE support allows for easy installation with a single Ethernet cable, which is ideal for areas where power outlets are not readily available.

Dustproof
Everyday dust particles are prevented from entering the AP’s housing.

Heat/Waterproof
Substantial protection from high levels of water and can withstand extremely low and high temperatures.

Quality of Service for smoother video calls.

Video conference calls and VoIP are the mainstay of any busy office. The Quality of Service feature ensures time-sensitive data is intelligently prioritised over other traffic such as email or web browsing ensuring seamless calls and video.

Effective Management

The AP includes a Console port for debugging and configuration. It can be used as a standalone wireless access point, or managed centrally via a D-Link Wireless Controller, allowing centralised management of up to 256 access points.

Robust Centralised Management

Versatile management significantly cuts down configuration and administration time. Paired with the robust DWC-2000 Unified Wireless Controller, the APs can be managed remotely and makes for a more customisable network. Roll out new configurations or keep your APs’ firmware up-to-date easily with remote batch configuration to save time.

1 This feature is available when Unified AP is used in conjunction with D-Link’s line of Unified Wireless Controllers.
Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE standard 802.11n 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.
