D-Link Wireless N 5GHz Outdoor Access Point
The DAP-3410 Wireless N 5GHz PoE Outdoor Access Point with PoE Pass-Through is the ideal solution for expanding the coverage and signal strength of any wireless network. Built to withstand harsh environments, the DAP-3410 also excels in connecting separate networks that cannot be joined physically using Ethernet cable or fibre. 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 increased connectivity to wireless network-enabled devices.
Increased Network Connectivity And Throughput
Expand current wireless network capacity with the less congested 5GHz frequency wireless band. In addition, two 10/100 Ethernet ports (one supporting PoE) allow for further network expansion through wired Ethernet connectivity. The built-in 15 dBi sector antenna has high power output, ensuring that wireless coverage will cover even hard to reach locations. Whether trying to connect additional wireless devices such as smartphones or laptops, or bringing connectivity to networks separated by short distances, the DAP-3410 has it covered.
Flexible Deployment Options
The DAP-3410 features seven multiple operation modes, allowing it to adapt to any situation. As a standard wireless access point (AP) the DAP-3410 can connect to a wide range of devices. In wireless distribution system (WDS) mode it can expand current wireless coverage without the need for a wired backbone link5. As a wireless client it can connect to an existing AP, and expand the network physically with the two built-in 10/100 Ethernet ports. Repeater mode will extend current wireless coverage eliminating dead spots and weak signals. WISP mode functionality includes the ability to function as a client or repeater.
Fine-Tuned Control Over Network Resources
The DAP-3410 supports up to 8 SSIDs, allowing the 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 keep costs down. The DAP-3410 supports 802.1Q VLAN Tagging, operating with multiple SSIDs to segment traffic to enhance performance and security. The DAP-3410 provides WLAN partitioning, a useful function for deployments such as hot spots. With station-to-station partitioning enabled, security is enhanced, since wireless users cannot peek at each other, and the possibility for data theft is reduced.
Robust Security And Management Tools
The DAP-3410 supports 64/128-bit WEP data encryption and WPA/WPA2 security functions. In addition, it provides 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-3410, including HTTP and HTTPS. For advanced network management, administrators can use SNMPv1, v2c, v3 to configure and manage access points.
Power over Ethernet (PoE)
The DAP-3410 is powered by PoE5 which allows for convenient installation, especially in places where a power supply is not reliable or power cables are not available or easily set up. Also, the DAP-3410 can supply power to a connected surveillance camera through PoE, including the DCS-3716, DCS-6113, and DCS-7110 cameras.
