Versatile Hardware with PoE support

The DAP-2553 delivers reliable Wireless N performance with no dead spots and rates of up to 300 Mbps in either the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz wireless band1.

For installations in areas where power outlets are not readily available, the Access Point integrates 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE), to ensure flexibility and easy set-up.

 

Enhanced performance

Support for the Wi-Fi Multimedia™ (WMM) Quality of Service feature makes the DAP-2553 an ideal solution for audio, video, and voice applications. Additionally, this Access Point supports load balancing to optimise high volumes of traffic.

 

Advanced wireless security

The DAP-2553 provides industrial grade wireless security by supporting both Personal and Enterprise versions of WPA and WPA2 (802.11i) with support for RADIUS server backend. This Access Point also includes MAC Address filtering, Wireless LAN segmentation, Disable SSID Broadcast and rogue AP detection. The AirPremier N Dual Band PoE Access Point includes support for up to 4 VLANs for implementing multiple service set identifiers (SSIDs) to further help segment users on the network. With multiple SSIDs, the number of physical APs deployed can be reduced, hence keeping costs to a minimum.

The DAP-2553 also includes a wireless client isolation mechanism to prevent direct client-to-client communication and a wireless scheduler to shut down the wireless LAN at certain times of the day.

 

Multiple operation modes

The DAP-2553 can be configured in any one of its multiple operation modes: Access Point, Wireless Distribution System (WDS) with Access Point, WDS/Bridge (No AP Broadcasting) and Wireless Client. With WDS support, network administrators can set up multiple DAP-2553s throughout a facility and configure them to bridge with one another while also providing network access to individual clients.

Advanced Network Management

Network administrators can manage all the DAP-2553's settings via its web-based configuration utility (HTTP), Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), Secure Shell

(SSH), or with Telnet. D-Link's AP Manager or D-View SNMPv3 management module may also be used to configure and manage multiple Access Points from a single location. In addition to a streamlined management process, network administrators can also verify and conduct regular maintenance checks without wasting resources by sending personnel out to physically test that the device is functioning correctly.
