Dell Networking W-AP175 Series Access Point

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

Overview:

The multifunction Dell Networking W-AP175 series access points are hardened outdoor dual-radio 802.11n access points (AP) designed to provide maximum deployment fl exibility in high-density campuses, storage yards, warehouses, container/transportation facilities, extreme industrial production areas and other harsh environments. The high-performance W-AP175 series delivers wire-like performance at data rates up to 300 Mbps per radio and is available in three models: W-AP175P operating from standard 802.3at power-over-Ethernet (PoE+) source, W-AP175AC operating from 100-240 volt AC power source and W-AP175DC operating from a 12-48 volt DC power supply. Both W-AP175AC and W-AP175DC powered models provide an 802.2af PoE power source on the Ethernet interface.

The W-AP175 series features two 2x2 MIMO dualband 2.4-GHz/5-GHz radios with four antenna interfaces. Each radio is capable of providing maximum data rate of 300Mbps and a maximum transmit power of up to 25dBm. With wall and mast mounting options, the W-AP175 series is built to provide fl exible mounting and deployment. Engineered to survive in harsh outdoor environments, the W-AP175 series withstands exposure to high and low temperatures, persistent moisture and precipitation, and is sealed for protection from airborne contaminants. Both power and Ethernet ports include surge protection.

As an 802.11n AP, the W-AP175 series works with the complete portfolio of Dell’s Networking W-Series centralized Mobility Controllers and delivers 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.

A key to ensuring wire-like performance and reliability is Adaptive Radio Management (ARM), which manage the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radio bands to deliver maximum client performance. Adaptive Radio Management enables diff erent 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-AP175 series can be confi gured through the Dell’s PowerConnect Mobility Controller to provide wireless LAN access with part- time air monitoring, dedicated air monitoring for wireless IPS and spectrum analysis, Remote AP (RAP) functionality or secure enterprise mesh.
