The DAP-3320/UPA Wireless PoE Outdoor Access point is the ideal solution for expanding the coverage and signal strength of any wireless network. Built to withstand outdoor environments, the DAP-3320/UPA also excels in connecting separate networks that cannot be joined physically using traditional medium. Multiple operating modes, network management tools, and security features give network administrators a wide range of choices for deploying the device, allowing for the addition of wireless network-enabled devices.
Increased Network Connectivity And Throughput
Expand current wireless network capacity with 2.4 GHz 802.11n wireless connectivity. The built-in 2 dBi omni antenna* ensures that wireless signal will cover a wide area. Whether you want to connect additional wireless devices such as smartphones or laptops, or bringing connectivity to networks separated by short distances, the DAP-3320/UPA has it covered.
Flexible Deployment Options
The DAP-3320/UPA features four operation modes, allowing it to adapt to any situation. As a standard wireless Access Point (AP), the DAP-3320/UPA can connect to a wide range of devices that are 802.11n/g/b compliant. In Wireless Distribution System (WDS) mode, it can expand current wireless coverage, without the need for a wired backbone link. As a Wireless Client it can connect a non-wireless capable device to an existing AP. In addition, the DAP-3320/UPA is powered by PoE which allows for convenient installation, especially in places where a power supply is not reliable or power cables are not available or easily installed.
Fine-Tuned Control Over Network Resources.
The DAP-3320/UPA supports up to 8 SSIDs, allowing administrators to logically divide the access point into several virtual access points all within a single hardware platform. Rather than having separate networks with several access points, administrators can deploy one single AP to support more than one application, such as public Internet access and internal network control to increase flexibility and reduce costs. The DAP-3320/UPA supports 802.1Q VLAN tagging, operating with multiple SSIDs to segment traffic to enhance performance and security. The DAP-3320/UPA provides WLAN partitioning, a useful function for deployments such as wireless hot spots. With station-to-station partitioning enabled, security is enhanced, since wireless traffic is isolated from each other, and the possibility for data theft is reduced.
Robust Security And Network Management Tools
The DAP-3320/UPA supports 64/128-bit WEP data encryption and WPA/WPA2 security functions as well as MAC Address Filtering to control user access, and the Disable SSID Broadcast function to limit outsiders’ access to the internal network. Network administrators have multiple options for managing the DAP-3320/UPA, including web (HTTP), Secure Socket Layer (SSL), Secure Shell (SSH), and Telnet. For advanced network management, administrators can use the D-Link Central WiFiManager to configure and manage multiple access points from a single location. In addition, the D-Link Central WiFiManager 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-3320/UPA has a wireless scheduler feature, which turns off wireless functionality when it isn’t needed, saving power. With its high output power design, PoE support, extensive manageability, versatile operation modes, and solid security enhancements, the DAP-3320/UPA provides small to medium business and enterprise environments with a business-class solution for
deploying a wireless network.
