D-Link DWL-2200AP High Speed Wireless Access Point

D-Link, an industry pioneer in wireless networking, introduces a solution for small-sized businesses seeking to deploy and implement powerful and reliable wireless LANs. D-Link unveils its new AirPremier 802.11g Access Point with PoE (DWL-2200AP), designed specifically for business-class environments to provide secure and manageable wireless LAN options for network administrators.

Centralized Management
With improved signal rates of up to 108Mbps*, the AirPremier Access Point allows network administrators to deploy a highly manageable and extremely robust wireless network. This high-speed Access Point has integrated 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) support to allow installation in areas where power outlets are not readily available.

The AirPremier Wireless Access Point provides maximum wireless security by supporting both Personal and Enterprise variants of both WPA-2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) and WPA for optimal data protection. Other security features included in this Access Point are MAC Address Access Control Lists (ACL), Wireless LAN segmentation, SSID Broadcast Disable, and support for Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).

For additional network security, if the AirPremier Wireless Access Point is connected to a switch that supports VLAN tagging (802.1q), the VLAN enabled DWL-2200AP can appropriately provide internal and guest network access options. Based on VLAN tagging infrastructure, the AirPremier Wireless Access Point features Multiple SSID support to further help segment users on the network. The DWL-2200AP also includes a wireless client isolation mechanism, which limits direct client-to-client communication.

To maximize total return on investment, the AirPremier 802.11g Access Point with PoE can be configured in any of three modes: Access Point, Wireless Distribution System (WDS), and WDS with AP Mode. WDS with AP mode allows you to simultaneously utilize the DWL-2200AP as an Access Point to connect client devices (notebooks, computers, printers), and serve as the wireless network backbone. The DWL-2200AP also includes advanced features such as load balancing, which optimizes high network traffic volume and redundancy for fail-safe wireless connectivity.

The DWL-2200AP delivers robust wireless performance with wireless data transfer rates of up to 108Mbps*. This, coupled with the 5dBi high gain antenna, creates a superior far-reaching wireless network. This Wireless Access Point is fully compatible with the IEEE 802.11b and 802.11g standards.

Network administrators can manage all the settings via the Web-based configuration utility or with Telnet. For advanced network management, administrators can use D-Link's AP Manager or D-View SNMP management module to configure multiple access points from a single location.

The AirPremier Wireless Access Point also includes AP Domain support for propagation of device settings. Once an AP domain name has been established, you can easily copy device settings from one DWL-2200AP to another unit connected to the same LAN. System administrators can create up to 10 distinct AP Domains and have up to 9 DWL-2200AP units per domain.

With integrated PoE support, extensive manageability, versatile operation modes, and solid security enhancements, the D-Link AirPremier Wireless Access Point (DWL-2200AP) provides everything needed to easily set up or extend a wireless network in your workplace.

* Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE Standard 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.
