Dell Networking W-IAP134/135 Instant Access Point
WiFi without a dedicated external controller

Dell Networking W-IAP134/135 Instant Access Point

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

Overview:

Dell Networking W-IAP134 and W-IAP135 are 802.11n based instant access points (IAPs) that delivers enterprise grade Wi-Fi network with affordability and simplicity of an entry level Wi-Fi network.

The W-IAP134 features two 3x3 MIMO dual-band 2.4-GHz/5-GHz radios with the interface to connect external antennas while the W-IAP135 features the same radios with integrated internal antennas. Both delivers data rate of 450Mbit/s per radio and are built to provide years of trouble-free operation and are backed by a Extended Lifetime Warranty.

Virtual controller technology

The virtual controller technology in Networking W-IAP134/135 delivers enterprise grade controller capabilities without needing a separate access point controller. The virtual controller in a single IAP is capable of controlling multiple number of other IAPs in a network that are either local or dispersed across multiple locations. Like a dedicated controller an IAP is able to perform key tasks such as AP auto discovery, 802.1X authentication, role- and device-based policy enforcement, rogue detection as well as specialized Adaptive Radio Management (ARM) that optimizes Wi-Fi client behavior by making sure that IAPs stay clear of RF interference. When multiple IAPs are connected together, a single IAP acts as a primary virtual controller. In the event of primary virtual controller failure, another W-Series IAP in a chain automatically takes on the role with no disruption to services. Scalability of IAP network is bounded by Layer-2 network design best practices. However, for W-IAP92/93 based networks the maximum limit is sixteen.

Ease of deployment

Networking W-IAP is designed to be up and running in minutes. From a laptop, simply connect wirelessly to perform over-the-air provisioning in quick easy steps. To expand the network, simply add more Networking W-IAPs—configuration is automatically uploaded to new units. You can dedicate one radio in a dual-radio W-IAPs to form a wireless mesh type of network and eliminate cabling between W-IAPs.

Management and visibility

Multiple Networking W-IAP networks can be securely and centrally managed by Dell Networking W-Series AirWave software management suite, allowing W-IAPs to operate in hundreds of remote locations. With Dell Networking W-Series AirWave, IT has real-time visibility into users, mobile devices, Wired and Wireless LANs infrastructure all from a single management console.

In addition, Dell also offers the OpenManage Network Manager 5.0 (OMNM 5.0) management software that is an easy-to-use, web-based management interface tool that can be customized. OMNM 5.0 delivers support for the full line of Dell Networking products, including Force10, PowerConnect and W-Series wireless devices and offers enhanced features for traffic flow analysis, deployment, monitoring, and management. OMNM 5.0 comes with ten free licenses. Each IAP based network uses one license, you can use remaining nine licenses to use for your other devices.

Investment protection

As WLAN requirements expand, Networking W-IAP can be re-imaged as an 802.11n campus AP and migrate to a centralized Mobility Controller architecture capable of supporting hundreds and thousands of APs. Firmware to covert IAP to campus AP is available upon request. In addition to providing WLAN access, campus APs in a centralized, controller architecture can provide wireless intrusion protection and powerful spectrum analysis capabilities.
