Economic WLAN Access Point
The bintec W1001n is a manageable access point with one radio module and fits perfectly for applications which require only one frequency band. The bintec W1001n provides the same software features as the products from the W Series.
The bintec W1001n offers three different modes of operation. You can operate the device as a stand-alone access point or manage it from a central bintec WLAN Controller. The W1001n can also function as a WLAN Controller itself (master access point) and manage up to six APs. The bintec WLAN Controller solution can be used in wireless networks with anywhere from 2 to 150 access points. The bintec WLAN Controller solution provides a scalable, end-to-end solution that lets you expand your network without migrating to a new technology. This flexibility protects your investments in existing infrastructures.
Clean lines and elegant design make this device an appealing choice for wall- or ceiling-mounting. It looks perfectly at home in high-end office spaces or hotels. Despite its handsome appearance, this access point also knows how to blend in. We've placed the antennas inside the housing, and you can turn off the LEDs to eliminate distractions.
The housing itself comes ready for wall mounting, eliminating the need for an additional wall-mount bracket. A bracket is available as an optional accessory for mounting the device on the ceiling. This ceiling-mount bracket also allows the device to be secured against theft by means of a Kensington lock. As an alternative to wall-or ceiling-mounting, you can also place the W1001n on a desktop thanks to the included rubber feet.
Whether you're operating a standalone access point or using a WLAN Controller, you can take advantage of the optional HotSpot solution that allows you to provide controlled access to your network for guests - an ideal solution for hotels and restaurants.
The W1001n also supports handover and roaming. That means with a properly set up and surveyed wireless network managed by a bintec WLAN Controller, wireless devices enjoy seamless coverage throughout the network. And seamless coverage is a must if you are, for instance, implementing a VoWLAN (Voice over WLAN) solution or using wireless barcode scanners for logistics applications.
The W1001n gives you green IT right out of the box with its automatic energy-saving features. If no client is connected, these APs turn off any circuits not currently in use, downshifting to MIMO 1x1. The Gigabit Ethernet ports support the energy-saving 802.3az standard, ensuring only as much energy as needed is used.
In addition to its access point functionality, the device can also be used as a wireless LAN client to give Ethernet-ready devices such as printers access to the wireless network. In addition, these units can also function as a wireless bridge links in point-to-multipoint mode with up to eight links. The ability to use a single radio module simultaneously as an access point and to operate a bridge link master makes it particularly efficient to implement wireless backbones. In these two operating modes, it is not possible to also use the device as a WLAN Controller.
