Networking W-AP93H Access Point

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

Overview:

The multifunction Dell Networking W-AP93H is an indoor 802.11n access point (AP) with four Ethernet ports designed to easily mount over Ethernet wall plates and uses existing structured cabling systems to provide secure wired and Wi-Fi network access in places like dormitories, classroom, hotels, small offices, medical clinics and multi tenants environments.

This compact, high-speed AP delivers wire-like performance at data rates up to 300 Mbps and is built to provide years of trouble free operation and is backed by Dell’s extended lifetime warranty.

Working with Dell Networking W-Series line of centralized Mobility Controllers, the W-AP93H greatly simplifies RF coverage planning and significantly reduces wireless LAN (WLAN) deployment costs while delivering secure, high-speed network services for both wireless and wired devices.

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.

The key to ensuring wire-like performance and reliability is Dell Networking W-Series unique Adaptive Radio Management and spectrum analysis capabilities, which manage both the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radio bands to deliver maximum client performance while mitigating any RF interference.

The multifunction W-AP93H can be configured through the Mobility Controller to provide WLAN access with part-time air monitoring, dedicated air monitoring for wireless IPS and spectrum analysis, Remote AP (RAP) functionality or secure enterprise mesh. The W-AP93H features a 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet “uplink” interface and can operate from standard 802.3af power-over-Ethernet (PoE) sources or a 12-volt DC power supply.

In addition, the W-AP93H offers four 10/100BASE-T Ethernet “downlink” interfaces to securely attach wired devices.
