The DWL-8710AP is an outdoor dual-band Wireless AC1200 Access Point designed specifically for deployment in business and campus environments. The DWL-8710AP can be installed on a wall or pole with the included mounting brackets. The DWL-8710AP is IP67-compliant and is designed to operate in harsh outdoor environments. For easy installation, it has integrated 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, allowing installation of this device in areas where power outlets are not readily available. Highly manageable and capable of blazing speeds, the DWL-8710AP integrates seamlessly into an existing network infrastructure and can be easily scaled to meet future demands.
Greater Reach and Flexibility
The DWL-8710AP provides unparalleled connectivity by using a 2×2 antenna implementation, allowing high combined data rates of 1167 Mbps (AC867 Mbps + N300 Mbps) over the air. Beamforming technology enables the DWL-8710AP to have even greater reach than its predecessor, allowing even more flexibility in any deployment scenario. With the 802.11n/ac technology, the DWL-8710AP provides the high performance over two bands, so wireless clients can stream media faster and farther than before using existing devices.
Centrally Manage your Wireless Network
When working in conjunction with D-Link Unified Switches/Controllers, the DWL-8710AP can be centrally managed. This allows for a large number of 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 individually. In addition, RF resource management and security are also managed centrally, allowing the administrator to preemptively identify potential deficiencies and weaknesses in the network.
For small businesses that need to deploy multiple APs but lack the resources to tackle the complicated task of network management, the DWL-8710AP’s self-configuring cluster feature offers the ideal solution. When a small number of DWL-8710APs are deployed on the network, they may be configured to form a self-configuring cluster. Once the administrator configures one access point, the same configuration can then be applied to all remaining APs. Up to 8 APs may be used to form a cluster, making setting up your business wireless network a breeze.
