Dell PowerConnect W-AP124 and W-AP125 Access Points

Sorry, this product is no longer available, Please, contact us for a replacement product!

Overview:

The multifunction Dell PowerConnect W-AP124 and W-AP125 are high performing indoor dual-radio 802.11n access points (APs) designed for maximum deployment flexibility in high-density environments that require above-ceiling or enclosure-based installations. These high-speed APs deliver wire-like performance at data rates up to 300 Mbps per radio.

The W-AP124 features two 3x3 MIMO dual-band 2.4-GHz/5- GHz radios has the interface to connect external antennas while the W-AP125 features the same radios 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 PowerConnect W Series Controllers, the W-AP124 and W-AP125 delivers secure, high-speed wireless network services for user mobility that works seamlessly within enterprise, branch office and campus network deployments.

802.11n enables the use of wireless as a primary connection with speed and reliability comparable 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 the W-Series Adaptive Radio Management (ARM), 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-AP124 and W-AP125 can be configured through the controller to provide WLAN access with part-time air monitoring, dedicated air monitoring for wireless IPS, Remote AP (RAP) functionality or secure enterprise mesh. The W-AP124 and W-AP125 feature dual 100/1000BASE-T Ethernet interfaces and operate from standard power-over-Ethernet (PoE) sources or a 5-volt DC power supply.
