Unified Wireless: Controller Managed Access Points

Unified Wireless is a scalable wireless local area network solution, built for high density environments. In contrast to legacy wireless networks that provide access via independent wireless access points or routers, unified wireless make use of centralized control policies that allow network administrators to manage the configuration of all access points.

D-Link offers a wide range of robust Unified Access Points (APs) operating in both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands, supporting the latest wireless standards including 802.11ac and 802.11n. All D-Link Unified APs can be managed independently (standalone), or collectively by using a Unified switch/controller. Choose the AP form factor that’s right for your needs, including desktop, ceiling/wall mount with hidden internal antennas, or plenum-rated, for placement in air passageways.

D-Link Unified Wireless Access Points are highly manageable and scalable with high data transmission speeds, optional support for PoE, and advanced security features. Up to 256 D-Link Unified Access Points can be deployed and managed easily and efficiently. Once the APs are discovered by the switch/controller, the administrator can push a specific set of configurations onto them, rather than having to do so one by one. In addition, RF resource management and security are also managed centrally, thus allowing the administrator to preemptively identify potential deficiencies and weaknesses in the network.

Select Unified APs support advanced features such as:

Band steering
Load Balancing
Seamless Roaming

802.11AC Unified Wireless Outdoor Access Point


The DWL-8710AP is an outdoor Dual-Band 802.11n/ac Wi-Fi Access Point designed specifically for deployment in business and campus environments. Highly manageable and capable of blazing speeds, the DWL-8710AP integrates seamlessly into existing network infrastructure and can be easily scaled to meet future demands. The DWL-8710AP is equipped with two radio transceivers. The first is a 2.4 GHz 2×2 IEEE 802.11n interface that supports up to 300 Mbps of network throughput while the second one is a 5 GHz 2×2 IEEE 802.11ac interface, capable of up to 867 Mbps of network throughput. The DWL-8710AP also features two Gigabit Ethernet network interfaces, designed to allow the administrator to easily bridge other networking devices into the network, such as a camera or another Wi-Fi access point.

Unified Wireless Concurrent Dual Band 802.11ac Access Point


The DWL-8610AP Unified Wireless Concurrent Dual Band 802.11ac Access Point combines the cutting edge wireless speeds of 802.11ac with the unparalleled flexibility and scalability of D-Link’s Unified Wireless Solution.  It supports maximum wireless signal rates of up to 450 Mbps over the 2.4 GHz band, and 1300 Mbps over the 5 GHz band.

Dual-Band 802.11AC Unified Wireless Access Point


The DWL-6610AP provides unparalleled connectivity by using a 2 x 2 antenna implementation, allowing high combined data rates of 1167 Mbps1 (AC867 Mbps + N300 Mbps) over the air. Beamforming technology enables the DWL-6610AP to have even greater reach than its predecessor, allowing even more flexibility in any deployment scenario. With the 802.11n/ac technology, the DWL-6610AP provides the high performance over two bands, so wireless clients can stream media faster and farther than before using existing devices.
