AirPremier 802.11g Indoor Wireless Access PointEOL
The D-Link AirPremier DWL-3260AP is a powerful and reliable wireless access point for business-class enterprise environments. Designed for indoor installation, this access point provides advanced functions including 108Mbps Turbo speed, security, Quality of Service (QoS), and Power over Ethernet (PoE) for network administrators to deploy a highly manageable and robust
Up to 108Mbps Wireless Speed. The DWL-3260AP delivers reliable wireless performance with standard 802.11g wireless throughput rates of up to 54Mbps. *It has the added capability of reaching maximum wireless signal rates of up to 108Mbps (Turbo mode) powered by D-Link 108G technology. At the same time, the DWL-3260AP remains fully compatible with the IEEE 802.11b and 802.11g standards.
Power Over Ethernet Support. For maximum coverage, the DWL-3260AP can be placed at out-of-the-way locations such as on a ceiling, using a mounting plate. Industry-standard 802.3af PoE support facilitates installation of this device on high places, where AC outlets are inaccessible and providing power to these locations is diffcult and expensive. From the ceiling, the DWL-3260AP can obtain
Ceiling Mounting. The DWL-3260AP has a round shape and can be camoufaged as a smoke detector to distract the attention of network intruders. Its diagnostic LED can be turned off to make it appear even more like a smoke detector.
Advanced Wireless Security. Since wireless security remains a strong concern among businesses, the DWL-3260AP provides the latest wireless security technologies by supporting both WPA/WPA2-Enterprise and 802.1x to ensure complete network protection. In addition, the DWL-3260AP currently comes 802.11i-ready to fully support industrial grade wireless security. Other security features included in this Access Point are MAC Address Filtering, Wireless LAN segmentation, Broadcast SSID Disabled, and support for Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) data encryption.
WDS (Wireless Distribution System) Support. To maximize total return on investment, the DWL-3260AP can be confgured to operate as an access point (AP mode), a point-to-point bridge or a point-to-multipoint bridge (WDS mode). In the AP mode, the DWL-3260AP uses its built-in omni-directional antenna for multi-angle coverage. In the WDS mode, the DWL-3260AP can be mounted on a high wall and externally ftted with an optional directional antenna through its SMA connector. Users will disable the built-in antenna through a slide switch, and the DWL-3260AP will communicate only with wireless bridges using the external directional antenna, without allowing wireless clients or workstations to access them.
Increased Network Flexibility and Effciency. The DWL-3260AP supports multiple SSIDs, allowing you to separate applications based on security and performance requirements. You can enable encryption and authentication on one SSID to protect private applications and no security on another SSID to maximize open connectivity for public usage. Multiple SSIDs means you can mix and match the broadcasting of SSIDs. For public Internet access applications, you can broadcast the SSID to enable user radio cards to automatically fnd available access points For private applications, you can disable SSID broadcast to prevent intruders from identifying your network. You can set the number of users that can associate via a particular SSID to control usage of particular applications. This can help provide a somewhat limited form of bandwidth contro for particular applications.
Cost Saving and Mobile Applications. By supporting multiple SSIDs, the DWL-3260AP allows you to logically divide your access point into several virtual access points all within a single hardware platform. Rather than having two separate WLANs, you can deploy one access point to support more than one application, such as public Internet access and internal network control to increase fexibility and keep costs down.
Advanced Network Management. Network administrators can manage all the DWL-3260AP’s settings via its web-based confguration utility or with Telnet. For advanced network management, the administrators can use D-Link’s AP Manager or D-View SNMP management module to confgure and manage multiple access points from a single location. In addition to a streamlined management process, network administrators can also verify and conduct regular maintenance checks without wasting resources by sending personnel out to physically verify proper operation.
