D-Link launches access points to improve Wi-Fi coverage

By

D-Link A/NZ launches a range of Nuclias Cloud-Managed Wi-Fi 6 indoor and Wi-Fi 5 Wave 2 outdoor access points, built upon the Nuclias Cloud Network Management platform and said to enhance managed service providers’ (MSP) offerings.

MSP’s and end-users alike can now enhance their offering and their Wi-Fi networks with new products to the Nuclias Cloud device range, according to D-Link.

Through a centralised system, tasks such as segmenting the network, managing multiple devices simultaneously, enforcing security policies, and monitoring live network statistics remotely can be done anytime and anywhere.

D-Link’s four new access points include a  4x4 Wi-Fi 6 AX3600 access point (DBA-X2830P), a 2x2 Wi-Fi 6 AX1800 (DBA-X1230P), an Outdoor IP67-rated Wi-Fi 5 AC1300 (DBA-3621P), and an Outdoor IP55-rated Wi-Fi 5 AC1300 (DBA-3620P).

DBA-X2830P - Nuclias Cloud-Managed Wi-Fi 6 AX3600 4x4 Dual Band PoE Access Point
• Centralised Cloud-based management and Zero Touch Deployment via Nuclias Cloud
• The latest Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) technology
• 4x4 Mu-Mimo design with 3600Mbps combined throughput
• Supports WPA3— the latest Wi-Fi encryption standard
• Two LAN ports with link aggregation up to 3.5gbps
• Airtime Fairness and Band Steering technologies
• Powered by IEEE 802.3at PoE

D-Link says the DBA-X2830P (pictured) is empowered with next generation Wi-Fi 6. Mu-mimo with even more uplink and downlink streams serves more devices simultaneously. OFDMA is said to increase transmission efficiency and 1024-QAM packs even more data, bringing unadulterated speed increases of a searing 25%.

The features that enable DBA-X2830P to maintain data speeds are:

Mu-Mimo
This feature handles congestion by being able to support more simultaneous streams of data. The Achilles’ heel of any Wi-Fi network is many users all connecting simultaneously. Equipped with Mu-Mimo with four spatial streams, the DBA-X2830P can open four connections at once, transforming one high-speed connection into four.

Load Balancing
Connections are shared out fairly to surrounding access points, avoiding any single point in your Wi-Fi becoming overwhelmed.

Beamforming
Beamforming technology optimises the wireless signal, focusing it towards receiving devices and then following them to maintain an optimal signal. This adaptive beamforming is said to enhance spectral efficiency and link quality.

Band Steering
Band Steering automatically drives devices such as smart phones or tablets onto the 5GHz band.

The DBA-X2830P Nuclias Cloud-Managed Access Point is deployed as a pre-managed, zero-configuration Access Point. With Nuclias' Zero-Touch Deployment, the access points can be powered on site, plug them in, and remotely set up and manage them through Nuclias Cloud.

DBA-X1230P - Nuclias Cloud-Managed Wi-Fi 6 AX1800 Dual Band PoE Access Point
• Centralised Cloud-based management and Zero Touch Deployment via Nuclias Cloud
• The latest Wi-Fi 6 technology
• Mu-Mimo design with 1800Mbps combined throughput
• Supports WPA3 — Wi-Fi encryption standard
• Airtime Fairness and Band Steering technologies
• Powered by IEEE 802.3at PoE

The DBA-X1230P (pictured) is equipped with Wi-Fi and comes with plenty of bandwidth and simple central management to boost productivity.

The DBA-X1230P features D-Link Beamforming Technology, OFDMA, 802.11ax Mu-Mimo technology with two spatial streams and 1800Mbps combined throughput to combat congestion, and is said to offer faster Wi-Fi experience.

DBA-3621P - Nuclias Cloud-Managed Dual Band AC1300 Wave 2 Wireless IP67 Rated Outdoor PoE Access Point
• Centralised Cloud-based management and Zero Touch Deployment via Nuclias Cloud
• Dual-band wireless speeds offer a 1267Mbps throughput
• Slice through congestion thanks to IEEE 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless
• 2x2 Mu-Mimo Antenna arrangement supporting two spatial streams
• IP67-rated water-resistant and dust-resistant housing
• Supports WPA3 - Wi-Fi security for more protection
• Supports power over ethernet for installation with less cable clutter
• Delivers powerful Wi-Fi, even in temperatures (-40 to 50°C)

The DBA-3621P (pictured)  is built with an IP67-rated water and dust resistant housing designed to keep Wi-Fi working, no matter the conditions. The DBA-3621P is paired with two gigabit LAN ports that support Link Aggregation and business operation.

The DBA-3621P Nuclias Cloud-Managed Wave 2 access point is also deployed as a pre-managed, zero-configuration access point, enjoys complete control when combined with the Nuclias Cloud management platform and the DBA-3621P’s Power over Ethernet (PoE) support allows for easy installation and a simple, clean setup.

DBA-3620P - Nuclias Cloud-Managed Dual Band AC1300 Wave 2 Wireless IP55 Rated Outdoor PoE access point
• Centralised Cloud-based management and Zero Touch Deployment via Nuclias Cloud
• Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) Wave 2 AC1300 Dual Band Access Point
• Built-in 2x2 Mu-Mimo antenna with option to connect external antennas
• IP55-rated water-resistant and dust-resistant housing
• Supports WPA3 - Wi-Fi security for more protection
• Band Steering and Beamforming support
• Wall and pole mounting kit included
• Up to 1.3gbps (400 + 867Mbps) throughput speeds
• Power over Ethernet (PoE) 802.3at
• Free-to-download companion App for desktops and tablets (Android or iOS)

The DBA-3620P (pictured) is a Nuclias Cloud Managed AC1300 Wave 2 Outdoor access point that is deployed as a pre-managed, zero-configuration access point also controlled through Nuclias Cloud.

This new access point comes in a IP55 rated housing that allows it to be installed outdoors. The access point has built-in omnidirectional antennas but also has the option to connect external antennas via two SMA connectors. The DBA-3620P can be mounted on a wall or a pole with the help of mounting accessories

D-Link launched the DBA-3620P and recognised that organisations want enterprise-grade, highly flexible networking solutions to support employees, educators, and end-users who need high-speed connectivity to perform remote and on-site tasks.

D-Link claims the DBA-3620P easily expands a business' wireless range and coverage for outdoor applications especially highly dense environments such as universities or luxury hotels. The access point also features remote deployment, system configuration, and ongoing site analytics via the compatible Nuclias Cloud app.
