    D-Link DWL-8610AP - Wireless AC1750 Dual Band Unified Access Point Product Description

    The DWL-8610AP Wireless AC1750 Dual-Band Unified Access Point combines the cutting-edge wireless speeds of 802.11ac with the unparalleled flexibility and scalability of D-Link's Unified Wireless Solution. The DWL-8610 is designed to support small to medium business or enterprise environments by providing network administrators with secure and manageable dual-band wireless network options.
    Super-fast Wireless AC Performance
    The DWL-8610AP delivers reliable, high-speed wireless performance using the latest 802.11ac standards with maximum wireless signal rates of up to 450 Mbps over the 2.4 GHz band, and 1300 Mbps over the 5 GHz band1. With band steering, the DWL-8610AP detects whether or not the wireless client is dual-band capable and if it is, it will push the client to connect to the less congested 5 GHz 802.11ac/n network. It does this by actively blocking the client's attempts to associate with the 2.4 GHz network. Band steering can ensure clients on the 5 GHz band can achieve their maximum performance without being bottle-necked by legacy 2.4 GHz 802.11b/g/n clients. This way, you can make the most of Wireless AC technology and at the same time ensure backwards compatibility with existing legacy equipment.
    AC SmartBeam™ technology enables the DWL-8610AP to have even greater reach than ever before. By focusing the wireless signal at connected devices, it guarantees continuous fast wireless speeds, anywhere in the office, even under heavy network utilisation or in area that had bad wireless signal
    Self-Configuring Cluster
    For small businesses that need to deploy multiple APs but lack the resources to tackle the complicated task of network management, the DWL-8610AP's self-configuring cluster feature offers the ideal solution. When a small number of DWL-8610APs are deployed on the network, they may be configured to form a self-configuring cluster. Once the administrator configures one access point, the same configuration can then be applied to all remaining APs. Up to 16 APs may be used to form a cluster, making setting up your business wireless network a breeze.
    Centrally Manage your Wireless Network
    When working in conjunction with a D-Link Unified Switch or Wireless Controller, the DWL-8610AP, like other D-Link Unified Access Points, may be centrally managed. This allows up to 192 D-Link Unified Access Points to be deployed and managed easily and efficiently. Once the APs are discovered by the switch/controller, the administrator can push specific a set of configurations onto them, rather than having to do so one by one. In addition, RF resource management and security are also managed centrally, thus allowing the administrator to pre-emptively identify potential deficiencies and weaknesses in the network.
    Automatic RF Management Saves Power and Money
    When a number of access points are deployed close to each other, interference may result if proper RF management isn't implemented. When a DWL-8610AP senses a neighbour nearby, it will automatically select a non-interfering channel. This greatly reduces RF interference and will allow the administrator to deploy APs more densely. To further minimise interference, when a nearby AP is operating on the same channel, the DWL-8610AP will automatically lower its transmission power2. When, for whatever reason, the nearby AP is no longer present, the DWL-8610AP will increase its transmission power to expand coverage.
    Quality of Service for Increased Connectivity
    The DWL-8610AP supports 802.1p Quality of Service (QoS) for enhanced throughput and better performance of time-sensitive traffic like VoIP and streaming DSCP. The DWL-8610AP is WMM-certified, so in the event of network congestion, time-sensitive traffic can be given priority ahead of other traffic. Furthermore, when a number of DWL-8610APs are in close proximity with each other, an access point will refuse new association requests once its resources are fully utilised. Instead, the association request will be picked up by a neighbouring unit. This feature ensures that no single AP is overburdened while others nearby sit idle.
    The DWL-8610AP supports the latest standards in Wi-Fi security, including WEP, WPA, WPA2, and 802.1X. In addition, it supports up to 16 Virtual Access Points (VAP) per radio, for a total of 32 VAPs, which allows the administrator to assign different access privileges to different groups of users. When Station Isolation is enabled, the AP blocks communication between wireless clients on the same radio and VAP. Rogue APs in the network can be easily detected, and the administrator will be immediately notified of any security threat. When used together with D-Link's Wireless Controller or Unified Switch, the security can be enhanced further.
    Convenient Installation
    With an embedded antenna and a simple housing, the DWL-8610AP can be installed on a wall or ceiling and blends in with most office environments. Enclosed in a plenum-rated chassis, the DWL-8610AP adheres to strict fire regulations for placement in air passageways. For easy installation, it has integrated 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, allowing installation of this device in areas where power outlets are not readily available.
