Unified 802.11ac Dual-band PoE Outdoor Access PointWhere to buy
DWL-8720AP is specially designed for small to medium businesses or enterprises, providing unparalleled bandwidth and flexibility for administrators looking to deploy a medium to large scale Wi-Fi network. This AP series has manageable dual-band wireless LAN options and utilizes the cutting-edge speed of Wireless AC Wave 2. Not only can they operate in standalone mode, the D-Link DWL-8720AP can also be centrally managed by D-Link Unified Wireless Controllers. Highly manageable and capable of blazing speeds, DWL-8720AP integrates seamlessly into any existing network infrastructure and can be easily scaled to meet future demands.
DWL-8720AP supports MU-MIMO (Multi-User Multiple Input Multiple Output), which enables the device to simultaneously communicate with multiple clients using multiple antennas. This allows the access point to utilize the spectrum more efficiently and significantly increase the network capacity.
When working in conjunction with D-Link Unified Controllers, the DWL-8720AP can be centrally managed. This allows for a large number of access points to be deployed and managed easily and efficiently. Once the APs are discovered by the controller, the administrator can push the configuration to them as a group, instead of configuring each access point individually.
Easy to Install
DWL-8720AP can be ceiling mounted or wall mounted to meet the needs of any wireless application. For additional flexibility, DWL-8720AP has integrated Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, allowing the devices to be installed in areas where power outlets are not readily available.
Advanced Wireless Features
DWL-8720AP supports 802.1p Quality of Service (QoS) for enhanced throughput and better performance of time-sensitive traffic like VoIP and streaming DSCP. DWL-8720AP also supports Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM), so in the event of network congestion, time-sensitive traffic can be given priority ahead of other traffic. Furthermore, when a number of access points are in close proximity to each other, an access point will refuse new association requests once its resources are fully utilized, allowing the association request to be picked up by a neighboring unit, distributing the load over multiple APs. Band steering technology enables DWL-8720AP to intelligently place clients on the optimal wireless band to avoid congestion and allows for smooth streaming of video, seamless browsing, and fast downloads for mobile devices. Airtime Fairness ensures that equal airtime is given to each client, providing increased performance even if slower devices are connected. 802.11k Fast Roaming* is also supported, which allows the wireless client to roam seamlessly between access points.
*This feature is available when Unified AP is used in conjunction with D-Link’s line of Unified Wireless Controllers.

*Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE standard 802.11n and 802.11ac specifications. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, and network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors will adversely affect wireless signal range.
