Next Generation Connectivity
Ideal for small to medium enterprises with dual-band
support for 802.11n and 802.11ac devices and over
1 Gbps throughput for reliable connections.
Experience smooth and stable performance with a
powerful CPU, beamforming for greater coverage, and
bandsteering for managing traffic.
Simplify access point deployment with a selfconfiguring
cluster mode and RF resource management for detecting weak signals.
The DWL-8710AP is equipped with two radio transceivers. The first is a 2.4 GHz 2x2 IEEE
802.11n interface that supports up to 300 Mbps of network throughput while the second one
is a 5 GHz 2x2 IEEE 802.11ac interface, capable of up to 867 Mbps of network throughput. The
DWL-8710AP also features two Gigabit Ethernet network interfaces, designed to allow the
administrator to easily bridge other networking devices into the network, such as a camera or
another Wi-Fi access point.
The DWL-8710AP is IP67-compliant and is designed to operate in harsh outdoor environments
and temperatures ranging from -30 up to 60 ˚C. In addition, all network interfaces are protected
against electrical surges, enabling the device to be placed in areas where there is a risk of being
struck by lightning.
When deployed in conjunction with D-Link’s line of Unified Wireless Switches, up to 1024
DWL-8710APs may be centrally managed and provisioned, enabling the administrator to scale
the Wi-Fi network to cover larger areas.
The DWL-8710AP supports all the latest in Wi-Fi security, including WPA, WPA2, and 802.1X.
In addition, the DWL-8710AP supports up to 32 Virtual Access Points (VAP), which gives the
administrator the flexibility to easily assign access privileges to different
classes of users. When used together with D-Link’s line of Unified Wireless
Switches, security can be taken to a new level. Rogue APs in the network may
be easily detected, and the administrator will be immediately notified of any
Automatic Radio Frequency (RF) Management
When a number of access points are deployed close to each other,
interference may result if proper RF management is not implemented. When
a DWL-8710AP senses a neighbor AP nearby, RF management will make it
so that the DWL-8710AP will automatically select a non-interfering channel.
This greatly reduces RF interference and makes it possible to deploy APs more
densely. To further minimize interference, the DWL-8710AP will automatically
lower its transmitting power when an adjacent AP is operating on the same channel.
If a nearby AP is no longer present, the DWL-8710AP will dynamically
increase its transmitting power again to increase wireless coverage.
Quality of Service
The DWL-8710AP supports Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM), which prioritizes timesensitive
traffic in the event of a network data congestion. Furthermore, when
a number of DWL-8710APs are in close proximity with each other, an access
point will refuse new association requests once its resources are fully utilized.
Instead, the association request will be picked up by a neighboring unit. This
feature ensures that a single access point is never overloaded while others
remain underutilized. Furthermore, the administrator has the option to limit
the bandwidth on a per-user basis, avoiding scenarios where a particular
client might use up all the available bandwidth, affecting the performance of
other users on the network.
