The DWL-3600AP Unified 802.11n Access Point is an indoor 802.11n Wi-Fi access point
designed specifically for deployment in business environments. Highly manageable and
capable of high data transmission speeds, the DWL-3600AP integrates seamlessly into
existing network infrastructure and can be easily scaled up to meet future demands.
The DWL-3600AP's 2x2 MIMO 2.4GHz radio delivers up to 300 Mbps1
of network throughput. In addition, the DWL-3600AP features RadioProtect technology, which
ensures all users receive an adequate level of service even in an environment where many
users are accessing the network through legacy 802.11b and 802.11g devices.
For small businesses that need to deploy multiple access points (APs) but lack the resources
to tackle the complicated task of network management, the DWL-3600AP's Configuration
Cluster feature offers the ideal solution. When a small number of DWL-3600APs is
deployed on the network, they may be configured to form a Replicating Cluster. Once the
administrator is through with configuring one access point, the same configuration can
then be applied to all remaining APs that are members of that cluster. Up to 16 APs may be
used to form a cluster.
When deployed in conjunction with D-Link's line of Unified Wireless Switches
or Wireless Controllers, up to 256 DWL-3600AP units may be centrally managed
and provisioned, thus enabling the administrator to expand the Wi-Fi network
to cover a large area.
The DWL-3600AP supports the latest standards in Wi-Fi security, including
WPA, WPA2, and 802.1X. In addition, the DWL-3600AP supports up to 16 virtual
access points (VAP), which allows the administrator to assign different access
privileges to different groups of users. When used together with D-Link's line of
Unified Wireless Switches or wireless controller, security can be raised to a new
level. Rogue APs in the network may be easily detected, and the administrator
will be immediately notified of any security threat.
When a number of access points are deployed close to each other, interference
may result if proper RF management is not implemented. When a DWL- 3600AP
senses a neighbor AP at startup, it will automatically select a non-interfering
channel. This greatly reduces RF interference and will allow the administrator
to deploy APs more densely. With a DWC Wireless Controller or DWS Unified
Wireless Switch, you can also adjust the transmit power dynamically. When a
nearby managed AP is operating on the same channel, the DWL-3600AP will
automatically lower its transmission power to minimize interference. When
that managed AP is no longer present, the DWL-3600 will increase it's transmit
power to expand coverage.
The DWL-3600AP is WMM-certified, so in the event of network congestion,
time-sensitive traffic can be given priority ahead of other traffic. Furthermore,
when a number of DWL-3600APs are in close proximity with each other, an
access point will refuse new association requests once its resources are fully
utilized. Instead, the association request will be picked up by a neighboring
AP. This feature ensures that no single AP is overburdened while others
nearby sit idle.
With an embedded antenna and simple styled exterior, the DWL-3600AP can
be installed on a wall or ceiling and blends in with most interior decorations
in an office. Enclosed in a plenum-rated chassis, the DWL-3600AP adheres
to strict fire codes for placement in air passageways. For easy installation,
the DWL-3600AP has integrated 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) support,
allowing installation of this device in areas where power outlets are not
