Overview:

The D-Link DWL Wave 2 Series Unified AC Wave 2 Wireless Access Points are specially designed for small to medium businesses or enterprises, providing unparalleled bandwidth and flexibility for administrators looking to deploy a medium to large scale Wi-Fi network with manageable dual-band wireless LAN options and utilizing the cutting-edge speed of Wireless AC Wave 2. Not only can it operate in standalone mode, the D-Link Unified AC Wave 2 Wireless Access Points can also be centrally managed by D-Link Unified Wireless Controllers. Highly manageable and capable of blazing speeds, the Unified AC Wave 2 Wireless Access Points integrate seamlessly into any existing network infrastructure and can be easily scaled to meet future demands.

Greater Speed and Connectivity

The DWL Wave 2 Series Unified AC Wave 2 Wireless Access Points leverage the full potential of 802.11ac Wave 2 to provide unparalleled connectivity with ultra-high combined data rates. The DWL-6620APS and DWL-7620AP deliver a combined speed of up to 1,267 Mbps4 and 2,134 Mbps4 respectively, while the DWL-8620AP offers an even faster combined speed of up to 2,533 Mbps4. In addition, the DWL Wave 2 Series supports Link Aggregation3, which allows two Gigabit Ethernet ports to be linked together and act as a single port to double the available bandwidth and maximize the overall throughput of the access point.

MU-MIMO Technology

All models in the DWL Wave 2 Series support MU-MIMO (Multi-User Multiple Input Multiple Output), which enables the device to simultaneously communicate with multiple clients using multiple antennas. This allows the access point to utilize the spectrum more efficiently and significantly increase the network capacity. The DWL-6620APS & DWL-7620AP feature 2 x 2 MU-MIMO, while the DWL-8620AP supports 4 x 4 MU-MIMO to take full advantage of all streams to serve more wireless clients to dramatically improve wireless performance.

D-Link Smart Antenna

The DWL-6620APS features D-Link Smart antenna technology that helps to select the optimal radiation pattern for each client and uses digital beam forming to enhance the antenna gain and achieve optimal throughput. In addition, the D-Link Smart Antenna supports multiple radio patterns to dynamically adapt to different kinds of environments. Meanwhile, the fast channel and bandwidth selection features always look for the best channel with the least interference for smoother performance. With these capabilities, the DWL-6620APS ensures a reliable connection reliability and optimized wireless user experience.

Tri-Band Wi-Fi

The DWL-7620AP is equipped with tri-band wireless technology featuring one 2.4 GHz and two 5 GHz wireless bands to accommodate the increasing number of devices connecting to a single access point. By allowing older 802.11b/g/n devices to connect to the 2.4 GHz, the two 5 GHz bands can be dedicated to newer, faster wireless AC devices to enjoy seamless bandwidth intensive applications such as HD video streaming, VoIP, and file sharing. Thanks to intelligent band steering technology, the DWL-7620AP can also efficiently load balance the clients and traffic between the three wireless bands to ensure all wireless clients have better using experience in the environment with high density.

Centrally Managed

When working in conjunction with D-Link Unified Controllers, the Unified AC Wave 2 Wireless Access Points can be centrally managed. This allows for a large number of access points to be deployed and managed easily and efficiently. Once the APs are discovered by the controller, the administrator can push the configuration to them as a group, instead of configuring each access point individually. Additionally, Radio Frequency (RF) resource management allows wireless coverage to be managed centrally, providing the best coverage possible for wireless clients.

Easy to Install

The DWL Wave 2 Series can be ceiling mounted or wall mounted to meet the needs of any wireless application. For additional flexibility, all D-Link Unified AC Wave 2 Wireless Access Points have integrated Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, allowing the devices to be installed in areas where power outlets are not readily available.

Automatic Radio Frequency (RF) Management

When access points are deployed in close proximity to each other, there maybe interference between channels if RF management is not implemented. When a D-Link Unified AC Access Point senses a neighbor nearby, it will automatically select a non-interfering channel. This greatly reduces RF interference and will allow the administrator to deploy APs more densely. To further minimize interference, when a nearby AP is on the same channel, the D-Link Unified AC Wave 2 Access Point will automatically lower its transmission power2. When, for whatever reason, the nearby AP is no longer present, the access point will increase its transmission power to expand coverage.

Advanced Wireless Features

The D-Link Unified AC Wave 2 Wireless Access Points support 802.1p Quality of Service (QoS) for enhanced throughput and better performance of time-sensitive traffic like VoIP and streaming DSCP. All D-Link Unified AC Wave 2 Wireless Access Points support Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM), so in the event of network congestion, time-sensitive traffic can be given priority ahead of other traffic. Furthermore, when a number of access points are in close proximity to each other, an access point will refuse new association requests once its resources are fully utilized, allowing the association request to be picked up by a neighboring unit, distributing the load over multiple APs. Band steering technology enables Unified AC Wave 2 Wireless Access Points to intelligently place clients on the optimal wireless band to avoid congestion and allows for smooth streaming of video, seamless browsing, and fast downloads for mobile devices. Airtime Fairness ensures that equal airtime is given to each client, providing increased performance even if slower devices are connected. 802.11k Fast Roaming2 is also supported, which allows the wireless client to roam seamlessly between access points.
