Wireless AC1200 Dual-Band Outdoor Unified Access Point



The DWL-8710AP is an outdoor dual-band Wireless AC1200 Access Point designed specifically for deployment in business and campus environments. Highly manageable and capable of blazing speeds, the DWL-8710AP integrates seamlessly into an existing network infrastructure and can be easily scaled to meet future demands.

Convenient Installation

The DWL-8710AP can be installed on a wall or pole with the included mounting brackets. The DWL-8710AP is IP67-compliant and is designed to operate in harsh outdoor environments and temperatures ranging from -30 up to 60˚C. For easy installation, it has integrated 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, allowing installation of this device in areas where power outlets are not readily available.

Superior Wireless AC Performance

The DWL-8710AP delivers reliable, high-speed wireless performance using the latest 802.11ac standards. Band steering ensures 5GHz-enabled clients can achieve their maximum performance without being bottle-necked by legacy 2.4 GHz 802.11b/g/n clients. AC SmartBeam™ technology enables the DWL-8710AP to have even greater reach than ever before.

Simultaneous Dual-Band Wireless

Delivers reliable wireless performance with maximum wireless signal rates of up to 300 Mbps over the 2.4 GHz band, and 867 Mbps over the 5 GHz band

Broadcast on 32 SSIDs Simultaneously

Supports up to 32 SSIDs, 16 per radio, including Station Isolation

Centrally Manage your Wireless Network

When working in conjunction with a D-Link Unified Switch or Wireless Controller, the DWL-8710AP, like other D-Link Unified Access Points, may be centrally managed. This allows up to 1,024 D-Link Unified Access Points to be deployed and managed easily and efficiently3. This managed wireless solution offers self-organising, self-optimising and self-healing network capabilities to increase the stability of the entire wireless network.
