Greater Speed and Connectivity
The DWL Series Unified AC Wave 2 Wireless Access Points leverages the full potential of 802.11ac Wave 2 to provide unparalleled connectivity with ultra-high combined data rates. The DWL-8720AP delivers a combined speed of up to 1,267 Mbps.
The DWL-8720AP supports MU-MIMO (Multi-User Multiple Input Multiple Output), which enables the device to simultaneously communicate with multiple clients using multiple antennas. This allows the access point to utilize the spectrum more efficiently and significantly increase the network capacity.
When working in conjunction with D-Link Unified Controllers, the DWL-8720AP can be centrally managed. This allows for a large number of access points to be deployed and managed easily and efficiently. Once the APs have been discovered by the controller, the administrator can push the configuration to them as a group, instead of configuring each access point individually. Additionally, Radio Frequency (RF) resource management allows wireless coverage to be managed centrally, providing the best coverage possible for wireless clients.
Automatic Radio Frequency (RF) Management
When access points are deployed in close proximity to each other, there may be interference between channels if RF management is not implemented. When one of the DWL-8720AP’s senses a neighbor nearby, it will automatically select a non-interfering 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 on the same channel, the D-Link Unified AC Wave 2 Access Point will automatically lower its transmission power. When a nearby AP is no longer present, the access point will increase its transmission power to expand coverage.
