Wireless AC Selectable Dual-band Access Point



Centrally Managed

When working in conjunction with D-Link Unified Controllers, the DWL-3610AP can be centrally managed. This allows for a large number of APs to be deployed and managed easily and efficiently. Once the APs are discovered by the controller, the administrator can push configuration to them as a group, instead of doing so individually. Additionally, Radio Frequency (RF) resource management allows wireless coverage to be managed centrally, proving the best coverage possible for wireless clients.

Self-Configuring Cluster

For small businesses that need to deploy multiple APs but lack the resources for complex network management, the DWL-3610AP self-configuring cluster allows a small number of DWL-3610AP access points to be set to form a self-configuring cluster. Once the administrator configures one access point, the same configuration can then be applied to all remaining APs, making setting up your wireless business network a breeze.

Performance Upgrade

The DWL-3610AP features an upgraded CPU, providing increased performance over its predecessor. The internal omnidirectional antenna extends its reach, eliminating dead spots and filling hard-to-reach places. A selectable radio mode allows the DWL-3610AP to work on either the 2.4 Ghz band or the 5 GHz band, providing speeds of up to 300 Mbps2 for 802.11n, and 867 Mbps for 802.11ac. Airtime fairness ensures that equal airtime is given to each client, providing increased performance even if slower devices are connected.

Automatic RF Management

When access points are deployed in close proximity to each other, there may be interference between channels if RF management is not implemented. When a DWL-3610AP senses a neighbor nearby, it will automatically select a non-interfering channel. This greatly reduces RF interference and will allow the administrator to deploy APs more densely. To further minimize interference, when a nearby AP is on the same channel, the  DWL-3610AP will automatically lower its transmission power1. When, for whatever reason, the nearby AP is no longer present, the DWL-3610AP will increase its transmission power to expand coverage.

Quality of Service

The DWL-3610AP supports 802.1p Quality of Service (QoS) for enhanced throughput and better performance of time-sensitive traffic like VoIP and streaming DSCP. The DWL-3610AP supports Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM), so in the event of network congestion, time-sensitive traffic can be given priority ahead of other traffic. Furthermore, when a number of DWL-3610AP units are in close proximity to each other, an access point will refuse new association requests once its resources are fully utilized, allowing the association request to be picked up by a neighboring unit, distributing the load over multiple APs.
