The bintec W2003n-ext is an 11n access point with two dual-band radio modules with external antennas, allowing simultaneous operation in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands.
The device is equipped with external dual-band antennas. This makes it possible to operate both radio modules on the same frequency, e.g. two antennas operating at 2.4 GHz or two antennas at 5 GHz. The external antennas are removable, allowing you to operate the device with a separate omnidirectional, sector, or directional antenna.
You can operate the bintec W2003n-ext access point in any of three different modes. You can operate the device as a stand-alone access point or manage it from a central bintec WLAN Controller. The W2003n-ext can also function as a WLAN Controller (master access point) itself to 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.
The included mounting hardware lets you quickly and easily mount the unit onto a ceiling or wall. For protection against theft, the device is also compatible with Kensington locks. As an alternative to wall-or ceiling-mounting, you can also place the device on a desktop thanks to the included rubber feet.
Take advantage of all the benefits our optional bintec HotSpot solution has to offer when using the W2003n-ext as a stand-alone access point or together with the WLAN Controller software. Hotspots benefit hotels and restaurants, for instance, by allowing them to provide controlled wireless access to their customers.
The W2003n-ext 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 W2003n-ext. gives you green IT right out of the box with its automatic energy-saving features. If no client is connected, the AP turns 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.
