Dell Networking W-AP104 and W-AP105 Access Points
Mainstream 600 Mbps 802.11n access point for secure dual-band wireless mobility

Dell Networking W-AP104 and W-AP105 Access Points

Sorry, this unit has been discontinued. Please, contact us for a replacement product!

Overview:

The multifunction Dell Networking W-AP104 and W-AP105 are indoor, dual-radio 802.11n access points (AP) designed for high- density deployments in offices, hospitals, schools and retail stores. These compact, high speed APs delivers wire-like performance at data rates up to 300 Mbps per radio.

The W-AP104 features two 2x2 MIMO dual-band 2.4-GHz/5-GHz radios with the interface to connect external antennas while the W-AP105 features the same configuration with integrated internal antennas. Both are built to provide years of trouble-free operation and are backed by an Extended Lifetime Warranty.

Working with Dell’s line of centralized Networking W Series Controllers, the W-AP104 and W-AP105 deliver secure, high-speed wireless network services for user mobility that works seamlessly within enterprise, branch and campus network deployments.

802.11n provides speed and reliability similar to a wired LAN. It also increases performance by utilizing techniques such as channel bonding, block acknowledgement and MIMO radios. Advanced antenna technology also increases range and reliability.

Key to ensuring wire-like performance and reliability is Adaptive Radio Management (ARM) capability, which manages the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radio bands to deliver maximum client performance. Adaptive Radio Management enables different 802.11 a, b,g and n wireless clients to operate on the same network at maximum possible performance through the use of band steering, airtime fairness policies between clients, and by managing channel interference that may occur between access points.

The multifunction W-AP104 and W-AP105 can be configured through the controller to provide wireless LAN (WLAN) access with part-time air monitoring, dedicated air monitoring for wireless intrusion protection, Remote AP (RAP) functionality or secure enterprise mesh. The W-AP104 and W-AP105 feature dual 100/1000 BASE-T Ethernet interfaces and operate from standard Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) sources or a 12-volt DC power supply.
