High-performance wireless and wired networking for branch and remote offices.
The multifunctional Dell Networking W-Series IAP 108 / 109 Remote Access Points deliver secure 802.11n wireless and wired networking, and access to corporate resources from branch and home offices. With unmatched deployment flexibility, the W-IAP 108 / 109 series can operate in Instant mode or in controller-managed mode where all network services are centralized by Dell mobility controllers. Internal and External antenna models provide even more deployment flexibility.
In Instant mode, traffic is locally bridged but it still provides the flexibility of secure tunneling to mobility controllers.
The W-IAP 108 / 109 offers a wide range of enterprise-class features, including role-based network access, policy-based forwarding, and Adaptive Radio Management (ARM), which optimizes Wi-Fi client performance and ensures that Dell W-Series APs stay clear of interference.
At locations that require greater coverage, the W-IAP 108 / 109 can join an Instant WLAN cluster. Simply install additional W-Series IAP’s and the entire cluster is managed as one. If one W-Series Instant AP fails, another AP automatically takes over with no disruption.
With dual-radios and wireless data rate up to 300 Mbps in the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radio bands, the W-IAP108 / 109 deliver high performance 11n wireless capacity and coverage. In addition, the W-IAP108 / 109 provide one 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet uplink, one 10/100BASE-T local Ethernet port and one USB port to connect to 3G and 4G networks.
When operating in W-Series Instant mode, the W-IAP108 / 109 deploy quickly, and get firmware updates from the cloud. They can also be managed using AirWave, whether distributed across many locations or at one site.
