The DWL-6720AP is an outdoor dual-band Wireless AC1300 Access Point designed specifically for deployment in business and campus environments. The DWL-6720AP can be installed on a wall or pole with the included mounting brackets. The DWL-6720AP is IP55-compliant and is designed to operate in outdoor environments. For easy installation, it has integrated 802.3af 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-6720AP integrates seamlessly into an existing network infrastructure and can be easily scaled to meet future demands.
The DWL-6720AP provides unparalleled connectivity by using a 2x2 antenna implementation, allowing high combined data rates of 1267 Mbps (AC867 Mbps + N400 Mbps) over the air. With the 802.11ac technology, the DWL-6720AP provides the high performance over two bands, so wireless clients can stream media faster and farther than before using existing devices.
When working in conjunction with D-Link Unified Switches/Controllers, the DWL-6720AP 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.
When a number of access points are deployed close to each other, interference may result if proper RF management isn’t implemented. When a DWL-6720AP senses a neighbor nearby, it will automatically select a noninterfering 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 operating on the same channel, the DWL-6720AP will automatically lower its transmission power2. When, for whatever reason, the nearby AP is no longer present, the DWL-6720AP will increase its transmission power to expand coverage.
The DWL-6720AP supports 802.1p Quality of Service (QoS) for enhanced throughput and better performance of time-sensitive traffic like VoIP and streaming DSCP. The DWL-6720AP 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-8710AP units 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. This feature ensures that no single AP is overburdened while others nearby sit idle.
1 Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE standard 802.11 and draft 802.11ac specifications. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, and network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors will adversely affect wireless signal range.
