The DAP-3662/MNA Wireless AC1200 Concurrent Dual Band Outdoor PoE Access Point is a versatile, high power outdoor access point designed with harsh weather resistant features making it an ideal solution for creating outdoor wireless hot spot networks. In addition to outdoor, it can be installed in environments where flexible wireless access and harsh conditions exists including; manufacturing plants, industrial automation, convention halls, stadium facilities, airports, school campuses, golf courses, marinas or virtually any venue requiring a robust wireless solution.
D-Link DAP-3662/MNA Features
Super-fast Wireless AC Performance
The DAP-3662/MNA delivers reliable, high-speed wireless performance using the latest 802.11ac standards with maximum wireless signal rates of up to 300 Mbps over the 2.4 GHz band, and 900 Mbps over the 5 GHz band1. This, coupled with support for the Wi-Fi Multimedia™ (WMM) Quality of Service (QoS) feature, makes it an ideal access point for audio, video, and voice applications. When enabled, QoS allows the DAP-3662 to automatically prioritize network traffic according to the level of interactive streaming, such as HD movies or VoIP. The QoS feature can be adjusted through the access point’s web GUI using a drop-down menu option to select customized priority rules. Additionally, the DAP-3662 supports load balancing to ensure maximum performance by limiting the maximum number of users per access point.
Built for the Outdoors
Specifically built for outdoor use, the DAP-3662 has an IP67 weatherproof housing that protects it from dirt and rain. Wireless AC connectivity, high powered antennas, and 802.3af PoE powering allow you the freedom to install it right where you need wireless coverage.
To help maintain a secure wireless network, the DAP-3662 supports both Personal and Enterprise versions of WPA and WPA2 (802.11i), with support for RADIUS server backend and a built-in internal RADIUS server allowing users to create their accounts within the device itself. This access point also includes MAC address filtering, wireless LAN segmentation, SSID broadcast disable, rogue AP detection, and wireless broadcast scheduling to further protect your wireless network. The DAP-3662 includes support for up to eight VLANs per band for implementing multiple SSIDs to further help segment users on the network. It also includes a wireless client isolation mechanism, which limits direct client-to-client communication. Additionally, the DAP-3662 supports Network Access Protection (NAP), allowing network administrators to define multiple levels of network access based on individual client’s need.
Multiple Operation Modes
To maximize total return on investment, the DAP-3662 can be configured to optimize network performance based on 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-3662 access points throughout a facility and configure them to bridge with one another while also providing network access to individual clients. The DAP-3662 also features advanced features such as load balancing and redundancy, for fail-safe wireless connectivity.
Versatile Access Point Functionality
The DAP-3662 allows network administrators to deploy a highly manageable and extremely robust simultaneous dual-band wireless network. The DAP-3662 can provide optimal wireless coverage over both 2.4 GHz (802.11g and 802.11n) and 5 GHz (802.11a, 802.11n, and 802.11ac) bands. The DAP-3662 has integrated 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, allowing this device to be installed in areas where power outlets are not readily available.
Network administrators have multiple options for managing the DAP-3662 Access Point, including Web (HTTP), Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), which provides a secure connection to the Internet, Secure Shell (SSH), which provides a secure channel between local and remote computers, and Telnet. For advanced network management, administrators can use the D-Link Central Wi-Fi Manager controller software to configure and manage multiple access points from a single location. Scalable and flexible, Central WiFiManager is accessible anytime, anywhere, though the Internet by using a web browser. In addition to a streamlined management process, Central Wi-Fi Manager software provides enterprise-level features, including bandwidth optimization, captive portal, and RF optimization. Also available is AP Array, allowing the management of a set of network devices as a single group for easy configuration and deployment. The DAP-3662 also has a wireless scheduler feature for power saving and added security.
With simultaneous dual-band functionality, PoE support, extensive manageability, versatile operation modes, and solid security enhancements, the DAP-3662 provides small to medium business and enterprise environments with a business class solution for deploying a wireless network.
