The DAP-3220 Wireless 108G Exterior Access Point connects 802.11g wireless devices to your wired network so that adding PCs to the network is a cable and hassle free task. Designed for outdoor environments, this access point creates an exterior ?wireless? bubble to let outdoor users connect to the network and the Internet access.
Powerful & Durable Outdoor Solution
The DAP-3220 is designed to handle a wide variety of outdoor environments. It has a die-cast watertight housing, a built-in heater and a temperature sensor. Supporting 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE), it can be placed at outdoor locations where power outlets are not easily accessible. Besides functioning as an AP, this device can be can be configured to operate as a Wireless Distribution System (WDS) to act as a bridge for linking together networks in different buildings.
Advanced Network Security
The DAP-3220 supports 64/128/152-bit WEP data encryption and WPA/WPA2 security functions. In addition, it provides MAC Address Filtering to control user access, and the Disable SSID Broadcast function to limit outsiders? access to the internal network.
Network Flexibility and Efficiency
The DAP-3220 supports up to 8 SSID, allowing the administrators to logically divide the access point into several virtual access points all within a single hardware platform. Rather than having separate networks with several access points, administrators can deploy one single AP to support more than one application, such as public Internet access and internal network control to increase flexibility and keep costs down. The DAP-3220 supports 802.1Q VLAN Tagging, operating with multiple SSID to segment traffic to enhance performance and security. The DAP-3220 provides WLAN STA partitioning, a function useful for deployments such as hot spots. With station-to-station partitioning enabled, security is enhanced, since wireless users cannot peek at each other, and the possibility for data thievery is reduced. Administrators can, however, disable this function, so wireless users at an office can share hard disks and information, and peripherals such as wireless printers. The DAP- 3220 also supports AP grouping, allowing several access points to balance wireless network traffic and wireless clients among the AP with the same SSID and different non-overlapping frequency channels.
