The D-Link DAP-2690 AirPremier N Quadband PoE Access Point provides businesses with a solution for deploying next generation 802.11n Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs). Designed for indoor installation, this Access Point enables network administrators to deploy a highly manageable, robust and secure wireless network.
Solid Hardware with PoE support
Enclosed in a sturdy metal chassis, the DAP-2690 passed the strict UL 2043 testing, achieving “Plenum Rating” with its material adhering to strict fire codes for placement in air passageways. For installations in areas where power outlets are not readily available, the Access Point integrates 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE), to ensure flexibility and easy set-up.
The DAP-2690 delivers reliable Wireless N performance with no dead spots and rates of up to 300 Mbps simultaneously in both the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz Wi-Fi bands1. Support for the Wi-Fi Multimedia™ (WMM) Quality of Service feature makes it an ideal access point for audio, video, and voice applications.
Additionally, this Access Point supports load balancing to accomodate high volumes of traffic, and redundancy for fail-safe wireless connectivity.
Cost efficient advanced wireless security
The DAP-2690 provides industrial grade wireless security by supporting both Personal and Enterprise versions of WPA and WPA2 (802.11i). A RADIUS server is built-in, so administrators do not need to invest in an external resource.
This Access Point supports up to 8 VLANs for implementing multiple service set identifiers (SSIDs), effectively segmenting users on the network.
With multiple SSIDs, the number of APs required is reduced and costs kept to a minimum.
The DAP-2690 also includes a wireless client isolation mechanism to prevent direct client-to-client communication. Other features include MAC Address Filtering, Disable SSID Broadcast and rogue AP detection to further protect your wireless network.
Additionally, the DAP-2690 supports Network Access Protection (NAP), a feature of Windows Server® 2008. NAP allows network administrators to define multiple levels of network access based on individual client’s need. If a client is identified outside of their access area, the client will be automatically brought back to their permitted network access level.
Multiple operation modes
The DAP-2690 can be configured in 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-2690s throughout a facility and configure them to bridge with one another while also providing network access to individual clients. Additionally, the DAP-2690 offers Spanning Tree Protocol support for greater efficiency and avoids broadcast storms when used in WDS mode.
Multiple management options
Network administrators can manage all the DAP-2690's settings via its web-based configuration utility (HTTP/HTTPS), Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), Secure Shell (SSH), or with Telnet. D-Link's AP Manager or D-View SNMPv3 management module may also be used to configure and manage multiple APs from a single location. Network administrators can thus verify and conduct regular maintenance checks without wasting resources by physically testing that the device is functioning correctly.
In addition, the AP includes D-Link’s AP Array, a WLAN management tool directly built into the firmware, so up to eight stand-alone APs can be managed at once without requiring extra software.
Included in all AirPremier N business-grade APs, this tool makes configuration of multiple APs an effortless process, ideal for the small office.
This AP allows you to implement Green IT without sacrificing operational performance or functionality: through the wireless scheduler, the most power-consuming part of the AP, ie the Wi-Fi radio, may be shut down at certain times of the day.
