D-Link, the industry pioneer in wireless networking, introduces a reliable high-performance wireless outdoor solution – the D-Link AirPremier 802.11a/g Outdoor AP/Bridge (DWL-7700AP). The dualband AP/Bridge is capable of delivering maximum wireless signal rates of up to 54Mbps* in both 802.11a and 802.11g wireless bands in any outdoor environment – simultaneously.

Extended Wireless Coverage
The AirPremier 802.11a/g Outdoor AP/Bridge is an ideal addition to businesses seeking to extend dualband wireless signal coverage over a variety of outdoor scenarios. Hot spot operators can use this rugged outdoor access point to support and deliver 802.11a and 802.11g wireless connectivity to their customers—whether they are out on the patio or deck, by the swimming pool, in the terrace, or on the golf course. By offering concurrent dualband connectivity, the total aggregate bandwidth available on the network increases.

Wi-Fi Certified
Another ideal application includes bridging together networks which are located in separate buildings. With the 802.11a/g Outdoor AP/Bridge's dualband capability, network administrators can bridge the networks on the 802.11a band while simultaneously providing 802.11g coverage for public wireless access.

Durable Outdoor AP/Bridge
Enclosed in a diecast watertight housing and equipped with a built-in heater monitored by a temperature sensor, the 802.11a/g Outdoor AP/Bridge is designed to endure harsh outdoor conditions. For advanced installations, this 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**. Both antennas are detachable and can be replaced with higher gain ones for an improved wireless signal.

Multiple Operation Modes
In addition to convenient installation, the AirPremier 802.11a/g Outdoor AP/Bridge can be configured to operate in any of three modes: Access Point (AP), Wireless Distribution System (WDS) with AP, or WDS (No AP Broadcasting). The AirPremier 802.11a/g Outdoor AP/Bridge includes advanced features such as load balancing that optimizes high network traffic volume and redundancy for fail-safe wireless connectivity.

When used in any of its operating modes, the 802.11a/g Outdoor AP/Bridge provides maximum security by supporting WEP (64/128/152-bit), WPA™, WPA2™, MAC Address Filtering, Wireless LAN segmentation, and Disable SSID Broadcast ensuring complete network protection.

Network Management
Network administrators can manage all the 802.11a/g Outdoor AP/Bridge settings via its Web-based configuration utility or with Telnet. For advanced network management, administrators can use D-Link's AP Manager II or the D-View SNMPv3 management module to configure multiple access points from a single location.

With its dualband functionality, integrated PoE support, extensive manageability, versatile operation modes, and solid security enhancements all in one box, the D-Link AirPremier 802.11a/g Outdoor AP/Bridge (DWL-7700AP) provides everything network administrators need to extend a robust wireless network to the great outdoors.

* 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.
** Maximum 28.5W power comsumption may only be achieved using the D-Link power injector included with this product.
