Where to buy

Description

Overview
The D-Link DAP-2553 AirPremier N Dual Band  PoE Access Point provides businesses with a solution  for deploying next generation draft 802.11n local area networks (LANs). Designed specifcally for business-class environments, such as large or enterprise  corporations,  this  access  point  provides  secure and manageable dual band wireless LAN options for network administrators.

Versatile Access Point
The  DAP-2553  AirPremier  N  Dual  Band  PoE  Access Point allows network administrators to arrange a highly manageable  and  extremely  robust  dual  band  wireless network. All three detachable dual band antennas supply optimal wireless coverage in either 2.4GHz (802.11g and draft 2.0 802.11n) or 5GHz (802.11a and draft 2.0 802.11n) frequency bands.  For advanced  installations,  this high-speed  access  point  has  integrated  802.3af Power  over Ethernet (PoE) support, allowing installation of this device in areas where power outlets are not readily available.

Enhanced Performance
The  DAP-2553  delivers  reliable  wireless  performance with maximum wireless signal  rates of up  to 300Mbps  in either  the 2.4GHz or 5GHz wireless band. Support  for  the Wi-Fi  Multimedia™  (WMM)  Quality  of  Service  feature, makes it an ideal access point for audio, video, and voice applications. Additionally, this access point supports load balance features to ensure maximum performance.

Security
To help maintain a secure wireless network,  the AirPremier N Dual Band PoE Access Point provides the latest in wireless security  technologies  by  supporting  both  Personal  and Enterprise versions of WPA and WPA2 (802.11i) with support for RADIUS server backend. This access point also includes MAC Address Filtering, Wireless LAN segmentation, Disable SSID Broadcast, Rogue AP Detection, and Wireless On/Off Scheduling to further protect your wireless network. The  AirPremier  N  Dual  Band  PoE  Access  Point  includes support for up to 4 VLANs for  implementing multiple service set  identifers  (SSIDs)  to  further help segment users on  the network. The DAP-2553 also includes a wireless client isolation mechanism to limit direct client-to-client communication.

Network Management
Network administrators have multiple options for managing the AirPremier N Dual Band PoE Access Point  including Web  (HTTP), Secure Sockets Later  (SSL, which provides for  a  secure  connection  to  the  Internet),  Secure  Shell (SSH, which provides for a secure channel between local and remote computers), and Telnet (bi-directional, eightbit byte  oriented  communications  facility).  For  advanced network management, administrators can use  the D-Link AP Manager  II or D-View SNMPv3 management module to  confgure  and manage multiple  access  points  from  a single  location. In addition to a streamlined management process, the AP Manager II or D-View software provides network  administrators with  the means  of  verifying  and conducting regular maintenance checks without wasting resources  by  sending  personnel  out  to  physically  verify proper operation.

With the selectable dual band functionality, PoE support, extensive manageability,  versatile operation modes, and solid  security  enhancements,  the  new  D-Link  DAP-2553 AirPremier N Dual Band PoE Access Point provides small to medium business (SMB) environments with a business-class  solution  for  deploying  a  wireless  network  in  the workplace.

Multiple Operation Modes
The DAP-2553 can be configured  to optimize network performance based on any one of  its multiple operation modes: Access Point, Wireless Distribution System  (WDS) with Access Point, WDS/Bridge (No AP Broadcasting) and Wireless Client. With WDS support, network administrators can set up multiple DAP-2553s  throughout a  facility and configure  them  to bridge with one another while also providing network access  to  individual clients. Also included are advanced  features such as Spanning Tree Protocol support, which allows greater efficiency and avoids broadcast storms when used in WDS mode.
