D-Link Introduces New Wireless N PoE Access Point for Small Medium Business & Small Medium Enterprise Environments
Singapore, 11 April 2016 — D-Link, one of the world’s biggest suppliers of networking products, introduces its latest High-performance Wireless N POE Access Point – the DAP 2230. This access point extends your network and allows you to enjoy wireless speeds of up to 300 Mbps1, making it a perfect and ideal solution for audio, video, and voice applications in business settings. The QoS feature allows the DAP-2230 to automatically prioritize network traffic according to the level of interactive streaming, such as HD movies or VoIP. Additionally, the DAP-2230 supports load balancing to ensure maximum performance by limiting the number of users per access point.
Reliable & Robust Security Features
DAP-2230 supports both Personal and Enterprise versions of WPA and WPA2 (802.11i). On top of that, with support for RADIUS server backend and a built-in internal RADIUS server, DAP-2230 allows users to create their accounts within the device itself. It also includes MAC address filtering, wireless LAN segmentation, SSID broadcast disable, rogue AP detection, and wireless broadcast scheduling to further protect your wireless network. Network administrators can now define multiple levels of network access based on individual client’s needs with Network Access Protection (NAP).
Flexible Operations & Convenient Installation
The DAP-2230 allows network administrators to deploy a highly manageable and extremely robust wireless network with optimal wireless coverage. It can be ceiling mounted, wall mounted, or placed on a desktop to meet any wireless demands. For advanced installations, the DAP-2230 has integrated 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, allowing this device to be installed in areas where power outlets are not readily available
The DAP-2230 can be configured to optimize network performance based on any one of its multiple operation modes: Access Point, Wireless Distribution System (WDS) with Access Point, WDS/Bridge (No AP Broadcasting), and Wireless Client. With WDS support, network administrators can set up multiple DAP-2230s throughout a facility and configure them to bridge with one another while at the same time, providing network access to individual clients. The load balancing and redundancy features found in DAP-2230 help ensure fail-safe wireless connectivity.
Advance Network Management
The DAP-2230 have multiple options for managing, including web (HTTP), Secure Socket Layer (SSL), Secure Shell (SSH), and Telnet. For advanced network management, administrators can use the D-Link Central Wi-Fi Manager to configure and manage multiple access points from a single location. In addition, the D-Link Central Wi-Fi Manager provides network administrators with the means of conducting regular maintenance checks remotely, eliminating the need for sending out personnel to physically verify proper operation.
The DAP-2230 has a wireless scheduler feature, which turns off wireless functionality when it isn’t needed, saving power consumption. With its high output power design, PoE support, extensive manageability, versatile operation modes, and solid security enhancements, the DAP-2230 provides small to medium business and enterprise environments with a business-class solution for deploying a wireless network.
The new N POE Wireless Access Point DAP-2230 is now available.
