The DWL-8600AP is D-Link’s next generation Unified Access Point supporting the IEEE 802.11n standard. Versatile and powerful, this device 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. Businesses can start with an intelligent DWL-8600AP that provides many advanced Wireless LAN functions, and then migrate to a centrally managed system anytime later by integrating the same DWL-8600AP with a D-Link unified wired/wireless switch. 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. 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. Security configuration settings can be locally stored in the DWL-8500AP itself. 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.

Description : 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. The architecture of most current wireless LAN controllers require wireless traffic to return to the controller for centralised processing, providing unnecessary traffic delay. The DWL-8600AP – when operating with a DWS-4026 switch – offers administrators extra options. Depending on the wireless application, wireless traffic can either be tunnelled back to the switch for better security control, or locally forwarded at the access point for optimal performance. When operating in conjunction with a DWS-4026 switch, 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. The DWL-8600AP continuously scans both frequency bands and their associated channels to detect rogues while simultaneously providing wireless connectivity to mobile clients. If a rogue is detected, it reports the result to the DWS-4026 wireless switch that manages it. From a management console, administrators can identify the rouge AP and take appropriate action.
