D-Link's next generation 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. Businesses can start with an intelligent DWL-8600AP then migrate to a centrally managed solution by integrating the same DWL-8600AP to a D-Link unified wired/wireless switch.

With Quadband technology, wireless speeds reach up to 300 Mbps in each frequency band simulnaneously. When managed from the switch, the Access Point does not store any setting locally. Power also comes from the switch via 802.3af PoE.

The DWL-8600AP continuously tunes itself for optimal RF channel and signal intensity to provide clients with the best wireless signal. It is also able to scan its RF environment, allowing the switch to detect rogue APs.

In addition, DWL-8600AP supports 802.1Q VLAN tagging, Load Balancing among Neighbour Aps, up to 16 SSIDs per radio and is Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) certified.

Blazing wireless speeds
802.11n offers up to six times increased throughput when compared with existing 802.11a/g networks. The DWL-8600AP is fully backwards compatible with 802.1a/b/g clients and allows for a 2x2:2 configuration with two Tx and Rx streams for each radio. Multiple In Multiple Out (MIMO) and wider bandwidth channels increase physical transfer rate over 802.11a/g. MIMO allows for more information to be coherently resolved by using several antennas instead of a single antenna. By employing the DWL-8600AP today, you can prepare your business for the future generation of wireless devices and mobile applications.

Intelligent "Fit" access point
The DWL-8600AP has everything on-board that enables network administrators to set up a secure wireless network. Advanced wireless functions that the DWL-8600AP supports include: WEP data encryption, WPA/WPA2 security, client MAC address filtering, AP load balancing, QOS/WMM (Wireless Multimedia), and Rogue AP Detection. The DWL-8600AP offers AP Clustering and Wireless Distribution System (WDS) functions. With AP Clustering, up to 8 APs can form a cluster for convenient management and configuration of all APs. WDS allows for the AP to act as a wireless bridge, connecting two different networks to each other without the need for a cable.

"Thin" AP centrally managed by unified switch/controller
Alternatively, the DWL-8600AP can operate in conjunction with a D-Link DWS-4026 unified wired/wireless switch. In this mode, multiple DWL-8600AP access points can connect directly or indirectly to one of these switches to provide unparalleled security and wireless mobility for wireless clients. Each DWL-8600AP access point will be continually tuned by these switches to provide optimal RF channels and transmission power for all mobile clients, giving them the best wireless signals in both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands and uninterrupted wireless connectivity.

Flexible dualband wireless LAN connectivity
The DWL-8600AP delivers concurrent wireless performance with maximum wireless signal rates in both frequency bands simultaneously. With dualband connectivity, two wireless networks are created both running at full bandwidth speeds, offering a significant increase in total network capacity.

Optimal wireless performance
The architecture of most current wireless LAN controllers require wireless traffic to return to the controller for centralized processing, providing unnecessary traffic delay. Depending on the wireless application, wireless traffic can either be tunneled back to the switch for better security control, or locally forwarded at the access point for optimal performance. This device offers administrators maximized flexibility with options to tunnel guest traffic to the switch for centralized security control, and forward VoIP traffic directly from the access point for optimal performance.

Self configuration and easy installation
The switch automatically configures every connected "thin" DWL-8600AP access point, so no configuration is necessary during installation. If a DWL-8600AP needs to be replaced, the replacement DWL-8600AP automatically inherits the same configuration, making the replacement process a simple one.

Total security and quality of service
The DWL-8600AP continuously scans both frequency bands and their associated channels to detect rogues while simultaneously providing wireless connectivity to mobile clients. From a management console, administrators can identify the rouge AP and take appropriate action. The DWL-8600AP supports 802.1Q VLAN Tagging and WMM (Wi-Fi Multimedia) for important wireless transmissions such as VoIP and streaming media applications, delivering critical user-based services, such as prioritized delivery of voice traffic.
