Unified Wireless N Simultaneous Dual‑Band PoE Access Point
- Product Status: Phased Out
D-Link’s Unified Access Point supporting the IEEE 802.11n standard can be flexibly deployed as a stand-alone "fit" wireless Access Point or as a "thin" managed Access Point (AP) manageable from a wireless switch such as D-Link’s DWS-4026, DWS-3160-24TC, DWS-3160-24PC, DWS-3024, DWS-3024L & D-Link wireless controller DWC-1000.
Performance without Compromise
Using the latest generation of Wireless N technology, the DWL-8600AP delivers great wireless performance and coverage in a compact design.
Broadcast on 32 SSIDs Simultaneously
Supports up to 32 SSIDs, 16 per radio, including Station Isolation
Managed using Wireless Controller or Unified Wireless Switch
All D-Link’s Unified Wireless Access Points can be managed using D-Link’s Wireless Controller or Unified Switch.
Simultaneous Dual-Band Wireless
Supports up to 600Mbps for the 5Ghz band and up to 300Mbps for the 2.4Ghz band
Fast seamless roaming
Combining the DWL-8600AP with a Unified Wireless Switch or Controller allows you to create a wireless network that enables people to move freely around a building without losing connectivity.
Designed for optimum wireless coverage
The DWL-8600AP delivers concurrent wireless performance and maximum signal rates in both frequency bands simultaneously. Its external antenna design enables network administrators to adjust the direction of the wireless signal to optimise coverage.
Versatility built as Standard
Whether you intend to use a single Access Point or roll out a large corporate network, the DWL-8600AP coupled with D-Link's Wireless Controller or Switch makes managing your wireless network simple.
Secure and Green Design
The DWL-8600AP incorporates a wireless scheduler feature, which turns off wireless operation when it isn’t needed, saving power and increasing network security.
