D-Link, the industry pioneer in wireless networking, introduces a performance breakthrough in wireless connectivity – the D-Link >AirPremier AG® DWL-7200AP Wireless Access Point, a business-class access point designed for small to medium businesses looking to deploy dualband multimode networks capable of delivering high performance speeds in both the 802.11a and 802.11g bands – at the same time.
The DWL-7200AP Wireless Access Point is an ideal solution for creating a secure and robust dualband wireless network. With its capability to concurrently perform and support users in both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency without splitting up the bandwidth per band, the DWL-7200AP provides administrators with greater flexibility in network deployments.
For advanced installations, this new high-speed Access Point has an integrated 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) port that allows you to install the device in areas where power outlets are not readily available. The current default 5dBi high-gain antennas can also be replaced with other wireless antennas if a stronger wireless signal is needed.
The DWL-7200AP provides maximum wireless security by supporting both WPA-Personal and WPA-Enterprise which includes 802.1x user authentication. Other security features included in this Access Point are MAC Address Filtering, Wireless LAN segmentation, Disable SSID Broadcast, and support for Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) Encryption.
To maximize your return on investment, the DWL-7200AP can be configured in any one of five modes: Access Point (AP), Point-to-Point (PtP), Point-to-Multipoint (PtMP) bridge, Repeater, or AP Client. With the ability to simultaneously operate in two bands, network administrators can assign one mode in 802.11a and another in 802.11g to increase productivity and maintain high network efficiency.
Powered by D-Link 108AG technology, the DWL-7200AP Wireless Access Point delivers unparalleled wireless performance boasting maximum wireless signal rates of up to 108Mbps* when set in Turbo mode for both 802.11a and 802.11g networks. Meanwhile, wireless devices operating on the 802.11g band remain backward compatible to standard 802.11b devices. With the ability to deliver high-throughput transfer rates in two bands at the same time, the DWL-7200AP provides reliable bandwidth performance while providing a solution to avoid network bottlenecks.
Network administrators can manage all the DWL-7200AP's settings via its Web-based configuration utility or with Telnet. For advanced network management, D-Link's AP Manager or D-View SNMP management software offers an all-in-one method to configure multiple access points from a single location. With dualband capabilities, integrated PoE support, extensive manageability, versatile operation modes and solid security enhancements, the new D-Link AirPremier AG Wireless Access Point with PoE provides everything needed to set up a future-proof wireless network or simply extend the wireless range of an existing network of today's small to medium businesses.
* Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE Standard 802.11a and 802.11g 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 will adversely affect wireless signal range.
