Bring free Wi‑Fi to Europeans with our WiFi4EU range.

In order to promote free Wi-Fi connectivity in public spaces, the European Commission’s WiFi4EU initiative aims to provide EU municipalities with funding for Wi-Fi equipment.

We have over 30 years of experience in helping people get connected, so we’ve designed products specifically for this initiative.

Our WiFi4EU ready range of indoor and outdoor access points include:

£120M

Allocated funding
Over the period of 5 application rounds between 2018 and 2020.

Security padlock

Best‑in‑class security.

Create highly secure wireless networks with Personal and Enterprise versions of WPA, WPA2, and WPA34.

The AP also supports a built-in RADIUS server, RADIUS server (backend), MAC address filtering, wireless LAN segmentation, SSID broadcast disable, rogue AP detection, and wireless broadcast scheduling to protect the network.

Your network, your way.

Customise your network the way you need it to perform. The AP can be used as a standalone AP or part of a centralised, scalable, multi-device deployment.

Configure the AP to optimise network performance based on any one of its multiple operational modes:

Access Point
Add wireless connectivity to an existing wired network.

Wireless Client
Add wireless connectivity to one device which doesn’t have a Wi-Fi adapter.

WDS
Wirelessly combine two separate networks.

WDS with AP
Wirelessly combine two separate networks while also providing wireless connectivity to both networks.

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 This unit is designed for indoor environments, you might violate local regulatory requirements by deploying this unit in outdoor environments.
3 Please note that operating frequency ranges vary depending on the regulations of individual countries and jurisdictions. The DAP-2660 may not support the 5.25-5.35 GHz and 5.47-5.725 GHz frequency ranges in certain regions.
This product is based on draft IEEE 802.11ac specifications and is not guaranteed to be forward compatible with future versions of IEEE 802.11ac specifications. Compatibility with 802.11ac devices from other manufacturers is not guaranteed. All references to speed and range are for comparison purposes only. Product specifications, size, and shape are subject to change without notice, and actual product appearance may differ from that depicted herein.
4 Available Q2, 2020.
5 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 bandwith 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 bandwith is recommended.
