Dell Networking W-IAP103 Instant Access Points

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


Multifunctional and affordable Dell Networking 103 Series wireless access points (APs) maximize mobile device performance in low-density Wi-Fi environments while minimizing interference from cellular networks. These compact and cost-effective APs deliver wireless data rates up to 300 Mbps per radio employing 802.11n technology with two spatial MIMO streams.

The W-AP103 and Instant W-IAP103 models feature a 2.4GHz and a 5GHz radio, each with 2x2:2 MIMO and two integrated omni-directional downtilt antennas per radio.

Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC)

Dell ACC feature enables WLANs to perform at peak efficiency by minimizing interference from 3G/4G LTE networks, distributed antenna systems and commercial small cell/femtocell equipment.

Wi-Fi client optimization

To eliminate sticky client behavior while users roam, the Dell Networking 103 Series APs feature Dell's patented ClientMatch™ technology, which continuously gathers session performance metrics from mobile devices.

If a mobile device moves away from an AP or if RF interference impedes performance, ClientMatch automatically steers the device to a better AP.

Quality of service for Lync

Dell Networking 103 Series APs additionally support priority handling and policy enforcement for individual Microsoft Lync media on the same device, including encrypted videoconferencing, voice, chat and desktop sharing.

Best-in-class RF management

All Dell Networking APs include Adaptive Radio Management™ technology, which is essential to creating the most reliable, high-performance WLANs. ARM™ manages the 2.4GHz and 5GHz radio bands to optimize Wi-Fi client performance and ensures that APs stay clear of RF interference.

Dell Networking 103 Series APs can be configured to provide part-time or dedicated air monitoring for spectrum analysis and wireless intrusion protection, VPN tunnels to extend remote locations to corporate resources, and wireless mesh connections where Ethernet drops are not available.

Choose your operating mode

Dell Networking 103 Series APs offer a choice of operating modes to meet your unique management and deployment requirements.

Controller-managed mode: When managed by Dell Networking W-Series Mobility Controllers, the W-AP103 offers centralized configuration, data encryption, policy enforcement and network services, as well as distributed and centralized traffic forwarding. Please refer to the Dell Networking Mobility Controller data sheets for more details.

Instant™ mode: A single W-IAP103 automatically distributes the network configuration to other Instant APs (IAPs) in the WLAN. Simply power-up one IAP, configure it over the air, and plug in the other IAPs – the entire process takes about five minutes.

If WLAN and network requirements change, a built-in migration path allows Dell Networking Instant APs to become part of a WLAN that is centrally managed by a Mobility Controller.

Advanced Features

Spectrum analysis

  • Capable of part-time or dedicated air monitoring, the spectrum analyzer remotely scans the 2.4GHz and 5GHz radio bands to identify sources of RF interference


  • With an OpenDNS service subscription, Dell Networking Instant APs deliver integrated web filtering, malware and botnet protection to every device connected to the WLAN
  • Integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for secure storage of credentials and keys
  • SecureJack-capable for secure tunneling of wired Ethernet traffic
