, an industry pioneer in wireless networking, introducesa solution or businesses seeking to deploy next generationdrat 802.11n LANs. D-Link unveils its new AirPremier N DualBand PoE Access Point (DAP-2590), designed specifcallyor business-class environments such as large or enterprisecorporations to provide secure and manageable dual bandwireless LAN options or network administrators.
Versatile Access Point
The DAP-2590 allows network administrators to deploya highly manageable and extremely robust dual bandwireless network. All three dual band antennas aredetachable and can provide optimal wireless coveragein either 2.4GHz (802.11g and drat 2.0 802.11n) or 5GHz(802.11a and drat 2.0 802.11n) bands. Enclosed in aplenum-rated metal chassis, the DAP-2590 adheres tostrict fre codes or placement in air passageways. Foradvanced installations, this new high-speed AccessPoint has integrated 802.3a Power over Ethernet (PoE)support, allowing installation o this device in areaswhere power outlets are not readily available.
The DAP-2590 delivers reliable wireless perormancewith maximum wireless signal rates o up to 300Mbps
in either the 2.4GHz or 5GHz wireless band. This, coupledwith support or Wi-Fi Multimedia™ (WMM) Qualityo Service eatures, makes it an ideal access point oraudio, video, and voice applications. Additionally, theDAP-2590 supports load balancing eatures to ensuremaximum perormance by limiting the maximum numbero users per Access Point.
To help maintain a secure wireless network, the DAP-2590provides the latest in wireless security technologiesby supporting both Personal and Enterprise versions oWPA and WPA2 (802.11i) with support or RADIUS serverbackend. To urther protect your wireless network, MACAddress Filtering, Wireless LAN segmentation, DisableSSID Broadcast, Rogue AP Detection, and WirelessBroadcast Scheduling are also included.The DAP-2590 includes support or up to 8 VLANs orimplementing multiple SSIDs to urther help segmentusers on the network. It also includes a wireless clientisolation mechanism, which limits direct client-to-clientcommunication.Additionally, the DAP-2590 supports Network AccessProtection (NAP), which is a eature o Windows Server
2008. NAP allows network administrators to defne multiplelevels o network access based on individual client’s need.I a client is identifed outside o their access area, theclient will be automatically brought back to their permittednetwork access level.
Multiple Operation Modes
To maximize total return on investment, the DAP-2590 canbe confgured to optimize network perormance based onany one o its multiple operation modes: Access Point,Wireless Distribution System (WDS) with Access Point,WDS/Bridge (No AP Broadcasting) and Wireless Client.With WDS support, network administrators can set upmultiple DAP-2590s throughout a acility and confgure them to bridge with one another while also providingnetwork access to individual clients. Also includedare advanced eatures such as Load Balancing, whichoptimizes high network trafc volume, and redundancyor ail-sae wireless connectivity. Additionally, theDAP-2590 oers Spanning Tree Protocol support orgreater efciency and to avoid broadcast storms whenused in WDS mode.
Network administrators have multiple options or managing the DAP-2590 including Web (HTTP), Secure SocketsLater (SSL, which provides or a secure connection to theInternet), Secure Shell (SSH, which provides or a securechannel between local and remote computers), and Telnet(bi-directional, eight-bit byte oriented communicationsacility). For advanced network management,administrators can use the D-Link AP Manager II or D-ViewSNMPv3 management module to confgure and manage
