Versatile Access Point:
The DAP-2330 allows network administrators to deploy a highly manageable and extremely robust 802.11n wireless network. It has two internal 3dBi antennas, a security lock, and uses a low-profile, unobtrusive white housing, which blends in with most interior office or school décor. A Gigabit LAN port provides ample uplink bandwidth for even the most demanding wireless applications.
Easy to Install:
The DAP-2330 ships with a mounting bracket, enabling easy installation on any wall or ceiling. It also includes a crossbar adapter clip for drop ceilings. This high-speed access point also has integrated 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE), simplifying installation in areas where power outlets are not readily accessible.
To help maintain a secure wireless network, the DAP-2330 supports both Personal and Enterprise versions of WPA and WPA2 (802.11i), with support for RADIUS server backend and a built-in internal RADIUS server allowing users to create their accounts within the device itself. This access point also includes MAC address filtering, wireless LAN segmentation, SSID broadcast disable, rogue AP detection, and wireless broadcast scheduling to protect the wireless network. The DAP-2330 includes support for up to eight VLANs for implementing multiple SSIDs to further help segment users on the network. It also includes a wireless client isolation mechanism, which limits direct client-to-client communication. Additionally, the DAP-2330 supports Network Access Protection (NAP), which allows network administrators to define multiple levels of network access based on individual client’s need.
Multiple Operation Modes:
To meet the unique needs of different business environments, the DAP-2330 can be configured to optimize network performance based on any one of its multiple operation modes: Access Point, Wireless Distribution System (WDS) with Access Point, WDS/Bridge, and Wireless Client. The DAP-2330 also supports Auto RF Management, which avoids RF interference and optimizes the output power performance.
Network administrators have multiple options for managing the DAP-2330, including web (HTTP), Secure Sockets Layer (SSL, which provides for a secure connection to the Internet), Secure Shell (SSH, which provides for a secure channel between local and remote computers), and Telnet. The DAP-2330 has a wireless scheduler feature, which turns off wireless functionality when it isn’t needed, saving power.
