D-Link now shipping new 802.11ac Wireless Access Point device
D-Link has announced the release of the DAP-2660, a new high-power 802.11ac wireless access point. Enclosed in a low-profile white housing, the DAP-2660 can be installed on the ceiling or wall-mounted in locations that require access to a wireless signal. Its maximum wireless signal rates are up to 300Mbps using a 2.4GHz band, and 867Mbps using the 5GHz band. The access point supports advanced radio management features such as band steering, airtime fairness and load balancing.
The DAP-2660 is capable of maintaining a secure network with WPA-WPA2 Personal/Enterprise encryption, MAC address filtering, wireless LAN segmentation, SSID broadcast disable, and up to eight VLANs per band for implementing multiple SSIDs. The device features multiple operation modes, and supports built-in authentication and billing options with its captive portal. Managable via web, Secure Sockets Layer, Secure Shell and Telnet -- for those who require advanced network management -- can use the access point in conjunction with the D-Link Central Wi-Fi Manager to configure and manage multiple access points remotely. Priced at $230, the DAP-2660 is available online.
