The D-LINK DWL-6700AP Wireless Dual-Band Outdoor Unified Access Point is an access point specially designed for medium distance wireless network bridging services, providing WDS/backhauling networking applications on its 5 GHz band. Featuring the 5 Ghz 8 dBi MIMO directional patch antenna, the D-LINK DWL-6700AP provides up to 1.5km wireless bridging distance. With WDS support, network administrators can set up multiple D-LINK DWL-6700APs throughout a facility and configure them to bridge with one another using the 5 GHz band while also providing network access to individual clients on the 2.4GHz band.
The D-LINK DWL-6700AP delivers reliable wireless performance with maximum wireless signal rates of up to 300 Mbps in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz mode. Support for Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) and Quality of Service (QoS) feature makes the D-LINK DWL-6700APan ideal Access Point to prioritise audio, video, and voice applications. In addition, the load balancing feature ensures maximum performance in the wireless environment.
The D-LINK DWL-6700AP supports the latest standards in Wi-Fi security, including WPA and WPA2. In addition, the D-LINK DWL-6700AP supports up to 4 Virtual Access Points (VAP) per radio, for a total of 8VAPs, which allows the administrator to assign different access privileges to different groups of users. When Station Isolation is enabled, the AP blocks communication between wireless clients on the same radio and VAP. When used together with a D-Link Wireless Controller or Unified Switch, wireless network security can be enhanced further.
When working in conjunction with D-Link Unified Switches/Wireless Controllers, the D-LINK DWL-6700AP can be centrally managed. This allows many APs to be deployed and managed easily and efficiently. Once the APs are discovered by the switch/controller, the administrator can push specific configuration sets onto them rather than having to do so one by one. In addition, RF resource management and security are also managed centrally, thus allowing the administrator to pre-emptively identify potential deficiencies and weaknesses in the network.
Button The visual 5 GHz signal strength LEDs provides simple indicators to display the signal strength of the WDS link. Network administrators can see the signal strength quickly and clearly, even if the two APs are over a kilometre away from each other. The additional remote reset button on the included PoE injector allows the D-LINK DWL-6700AP to be hard reset without the need to physically access the device itself.
The D-LINK DWL-6700AP supports 802.1p Quality of Service (QoS) for enhanced throughput and better performance of time-sensitive traffic like VoIP and streaming DSCP. The D-LINK DWL-6700AP is WMM-certified, so in the event of network congestion, time-sensitive traffic can be given priority ahead of other traffic. Furthermore, when several D-LINK DWL-6700AP units are in close proximity to each other, an access point will refuse new association requests once its resources are fully utilised, allowing the association request to be picked up by a neighbouring unit. This feature ensures that no single AP is overburdened while others nearby sit idle.
With an embedded antenna and a simple housing, the D-LINK DWL-6700AP can be installed on a pole. Enclosed in an IP-55 rated weatherproof housing as well as an operating range between -30°C to 50°C, the D-Link DWL-6700AP is protected against exposure to heat and cold as well as rain. For easy installation, it has integrated Power over Ethernet (PoE) support and includes PoE injector, allowing installation of this device in areas where power outlets are not readily available.
