The DWL-6600AP Unified Wireless N Simultaneous Dual-Band PoE Access Point is a best-in-class indoor AP designed specifically for business environments. With high data transmission speeds and a load balancing feature, the DWL-6600AP offers high-quality and reliable wireless service. Versatile and powerful, the DWL-6600AP can be flexibly deployed as a standalone wireless Access Point or as a managed Access Point controlled by a D-Link DWS-3160/DWS-4026 Unified Controller or a DWC-1000 Wireless Controller. Businesses can start with standalone mode deployment, then migrate to a centrally managed system anytime later.
The DWL-6600AP delivers reliable wireless performance with maximum wireless signal rates of up to 300 Mbps in either the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz mode. Support for Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) Quality of Service features makes the DWL-6600AP an ideal access point for audio, video, and voice application. In addition, the load balancing feature ensures maximum performance and best service quality in the wireless environment.
For small businesses that need to deploy multiple Access Points but lack the resources to tackle the complicated task of network management, the DWL-6600AP's self-configuring cluster feature offers the ideal solution. When a small number of DWL-6600APs is deployed on the network, they may be configured to form a self-configuring cluster. Once the administrator configures the master Access Point, the same configuration can then be applied to all remaining APs. Up to 16 Access points may be used to form a cluster.
When deployed in conjunction with D-Link's DWC-1000 Wireless Controller or DWS-3160/DWS-4026 Unified Switch, up to 256 DWL-6600AP units can be centrally managed and provisioned, thus enabling the administrator to scale up the Wi-Fi network to cover a very large area.
The DWL-6600AP supports the latest standards in Wi-Fi security, including WPA, WPA2, and 802.1x. In addition, the DWL-6600AP supports up to 16 Virtual Access Points (VAP), which allows the administrator to assign different access privileges to different groups of users. When used together with D-Link's Wireless Controller or Unified Switch, security can be raised to a new level. Rogue APs in the network can be easily detected, and the administrator will be immediately notified of any security threat.
Automatic RF Management
When a number of Access Points are deployed close to each other, interference may result if proper RF management is not implemented. When a DWL-6600AP senses a neighbor nearby, it will automatically select a non-interfering channel. This greatly reduces RF interference and allows the administrator to deploy APs more densely. To further minimise interference, when a nearby AP is operating on the same channel, the DWL-6600AP will automatically lower its transmission power. When, for whatever reason, the nearby AP is no longer present, the DWL-6600AP will increase its transmit power to expand coverage.
Quality of Service
The DWL-6600AP is WMM-certified, so in the event of network congestion, time-sensitive traffic can be given priority ahead of the rest of traffic. Furthermore, when a number of DWL-6600APs 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 neighboring unit. This feature ensures that no single AP is overburdened while others nearby sit idle.
3rd party support
The DWL-6600AP supports AirMagnet, one of the industry's most accurate software solutions for planning, designing and troubleshooting wireless networks for optimal performance, security and compliance. AirMagnet calculates the ideal quantity, placement and configuration of APs for a successful WLAN deployment. It also allows IT administrators to test and diagnose wireless performance issues. Additionally, a RFID-based location tracking system is supported with Aeroscout technology. Aeroscout allows tracking of persons, objects and assets by means of RFID tags which have built-in location capabilities. This is especially useful within healthcare, manufacturing and security sectors.
