Overview:

The DWL-6600AP Unified N Dual-band PoE Access Point is a best-in-class indoor access point designed specifically for business-class environments. With high data transmission speeds and access point load balancing, the DWL-6600AP offers high-quality and reliable wireless service. Versatile and powerful, the DWL-6600AP can be flexibly deployed as a standalone wireless access point or as a managed access point controlled by a D-Link® Unified Wireless Switch or Wireless Controller. Businesses can start with standalone mode deployment, then migrate to a centrally managed system anytime later.

Enhanced Performance
The DWL-6600AP delivers reliable wireless performance with maximum wireless signal rates of up to 300 Mbps in either the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz mode. Support for Wi-Fi Multimedia™ (WMM) Quality of Service features makes the DWL-6600AP an ideal access point for audio, video, and voice application. In addition, the load balancing feature ensures maximum performance and best service quality in the wireless environment1.

Self-Configuring Cluster
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-6600AP’s self-configuring cluster feature offers the ideal solution. When several DWL-6600APs are deployed on the network, they can be organized to form a self-configuring cluster. The administrator can configure one access point and apply the same arrangement to all remaining APs. Up to 16 APs may be used to form a cluster.

Unified Management
The DWL-6600AP can operate in conjunction with a D-Link Wireless Switch and Wireless Controller. In this mode, multiple DWL-6600APs can connect directly or indirectly to one of these switches/ controllers to provide unparalleled security and wireless mobility for wireless clients. Each DWL-6600AP will be continually tuned by these switches to provide the optimal RF channels and transmission power for all mobile clients, giving them the best wireless signals in both 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz bands and uninterrupted wireless connectivity.

Security
The DWL-6600AP supports the latest standards in wireless security, including WEP, WPA, WPA2, and 802.1X. In addition, the DWL-6600AP supports up to 16 virtual access points (VAP) per radio, for a total of 32 VAPs, allowing 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 with D-Link’s line of Unified Wireless Switches, security is strengthened. Administrators will be immediately notified of any security threats arise and when rogue APs in the network are detected.

Automatic RF Management
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-6600AP senses any neighbor AP at startup, it will automatically select a non-interfering channel, the DWL-6600AP will automatically lower its transmission power to minimize interference. When that managed AP is no longer present, the DWL-6600AP will increase it’s transmit power to expand coverage.

Quality of Service
The DWL-6600AP 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-6600APs are in close proximity with each other, an access point can refuse new association request 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 over burdened while other APs nearby sit idle.

Convenient Installation
With an embedded antenna and simple styled exterior, the DWL-6600AP 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-6600AP adheres to strict fire codes for placement in air passageways. For easy installation, the DWL-6600AP has integrated 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, allowing installation of this device in areas where power outlets are not readily available.
