The bintec W2004n is an 11n access point with two single-band radio modules, allowing the device to operate in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands simultaneously. The both radio modules with mimo 3x3 technique offer 2x450 Mbps bandwidth.
The unit is a perfect match for indoor wireless infrastructures designed to provide access over both frequencies. Smartphones, tablets, and older notebooks can connect to the the 2.4 GHz network while high-performance notebooks connect to the 5 GHz network.
You can run the bintec W2004n in any of three different modes. You can choose to operate the device as a stand-alone access point or manage it from a centrally-located bintec WLAN Controller. The W2004n 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.
The clean lines and elegant design of the W2004n make it an appealing choice for wall- or ceiling-mounting. It looks perfectly at home in high-end office spaces, hotels, and hospitals. 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 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 W2004n 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 W2004n 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 W2004n 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.
