You know that Wi-Fi connectivity provides cost savings and flexibility for your expanding network. D-Link lets you harness the power and speed of 802.11n Wi-Fi for business networking applications with the AirPremier N Dual Band PoE Access Point (DAP-2553). D-Link, an industry pioneer in wireless networking, introduces a solution for businesses seeking to deploy next generation draft 802.11n LANs. D-Link unveils its new AirPremier N Dual Band PoE Access Point (DAP-2553), designed specifically for business-class environments to provide secure and manageable dual band wireless LAN options for network administrators. The DAP-2553 allows network administrators to deploy a highly manageable and extremely robust dual band wireless network. All three dual band antennas are detachable and can provide 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) bands. For advanced installations, this new 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.
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. This, coupled with support for Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) Quality of Service features, makes it an ideal access point for audio, video, and voice applications. Additionally, the DAP-2553 supports load-balancing features to ensure maximum performance by limiting the maximum number of users per Access Point. To maximize total return on investment, 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. Network administrators have multiple options for managing the DAP-2553 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, eight-bit byte oriented communications facility). For advanced network management, administrators can use the D-Link AP Manager II or D-View SNMPv3 management module to configure and manage multiple access points from a single location.
