Greater Speed and Connectivity
The DWL-X8630AP leverages the full potential of 802.11ax to provide unparalleled connectivity with ultra-high combined data rates. The DWL-X8630AP deliver a combined speed of up to 3600 Mbps. In addition, the DWL-X8630AP supports Link Aggregation, which allows two Gigabit Ethernet ports to be linked together and act as a single port to double the available bandwidth and maximize the overall throughput of the access point.
The DWL-X8630AP 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 DWL-X8630AP to utilize the spectrum more efficiently and significantly increase the network capacity. The DWL-X8630AP features 4 x 4 MU-MIMO dramatically improving wireless performance by taking full advantage of all streams to serve more wireless clients.
Advanced Wireless Features
The DWL-X8630AP supports 802.1p Quality of Service (QoS) for enhanced throughput and better performance of time-sensitive traffic like VoIP and streaming DSCP. All D-Link Unified AX aWireless Access Points support Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM), so in the event of network congestion, time-sensitive traffic can be given priority ahead of other traffic. Furthermore, when a number of access points 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, distributing the load over multiple APs. Band steering technology enables the DWL-X8630AP to intelligently place clients on the optimal wireless band to avoid congestion and allows for smooth streaming of video, seamless browsing, and fast downloads for
mobile devices. Airtime Fairness ensures that equal airtime is given to each client, providing increased performance even if slower devices are connected. 802.11kvr Fast Roaming is also supported, which allows the wireless client to roam seamlessly between access points.
When working in conjunction with D-Link Unified Controllers, the DWL-X8630AP 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 management1 allows wireless coverage to be managed centrally,
providing the best coverage possible for wireless clients.
The DWL-X8630AP is the latest model of D-Link DWL Series, utilizing 802.11ax technology (also known as Wi-Fi 6). 11ax includes 1024-QAM modulation, which surpasses speed limitations in both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access) and uplink/downlink MUMIMO (multi-user – multiple input multiple output) boosts channel capacity and efficiency, enabling more clients to access the network. The DWL-X8630 boasts up to 4 special streams with channel bandwidths up to 160 MHz (in 5 GHz, 40 MHz in 2.4 GHz). This AX3600 AP achieves 2402 Mbps PHY on 5 GHz and 1147 Mbps PHY on 2.4 GHz. The DWL-X8630AP’s built-in 2.5 GbE PoE port unlocks the door to ‘multi-gigabit’ Wi-Fi, making AX3600 technology essential for increasing your network’s speed and bandwidth.
BSS (Basic Service Set) Coloring
To minimize wireless interference, the Wi-Fi 6 protocol enables access points to inject ‘coloring’ information into the data packet when coverage overlap with another BSS is detected, enabling devices to effectively identify and ignore signals from other wireless networks. The access point can also change its color if a neighboring BSS access point is using the same color (known as color collision). The access point embeds a new color element into the data packet, allowing the device to ignore all signals from the overlapping network, effectively eliminating interference.
