The D-Link DAP-2555 AirPremier® N Dual Band, PoE Access Point powered by CloudCommand™ is the foundation of the next generation of Wi-Fi networks for business. It leverages a pioneering cloud architecture that makes deploying, configuring, securing and managing Access Points an easy task that can be completed from anywhere. This access point is designed for small and medium businesses to bridge the gap between easy-to-use consumergrade hardware that scales poorly and prohibitively expensive and complex enterprise-grade solutions that are impossibly difficult to manage.
With the DAP-2555 AirPremier® N Dual Band, PoE Access Point you can now enjoy a secure, businessgrade Wi-Fi network that is reliable and easy to use at a fraction of the cost of traditional enterprise solutions.
AirPremier® N Dual Band, PoE Access Points are simple to set up (individually or in groups) using a web browser and Internet connection. There is no need to install software from a CD or to log into firmware pages. Unlike traditional models, once these access points connect to your local area network they automatically retrieve their configuration settings from the Internet and are ready for use in minutes. The only task remaining is their physical installation.
The DAP-2555 gives users the power to administer the entire Wi-Fi network from anywhere, even if the APs are distributed across multiple locations. Save time and resources by making changes to all the APs simultaneously. Or, you can adjust their settings individually. Access is as simple as opening a web browser and logging into your online account at dlink.cloudcommand.com. Make security changes, add and remove individual network users, view graphical reports and much more – all from your office or while on the road. You can receive alerts via email or by text message.
Powerful, Complete Coverage
Thanks to CloudCommand technology, these inexpensive business-grade access points can be easily and cost effectively deployed in groups. This allows for a higher density of access options, ensuring more complete coverage, well-balanced bandwidth loads and superior speed. What that delivers the end user is an overall seamless and high-quality experience.
In addition to the traditional WPA2 encryption standard for secure access, the DAP-2555 offers Individual Device Authentication (IDA) technology. This technology automatically identifies and secures each connected device on an individual basis. The security setup is as simple as sending a text message. IDA allows for easier management of network access privileges and gives administrators the ability to quickly add and remove users without having to constantly change security keys (a common challenge that wireless solutions have today). Administrators can also choose to send individual network keys to users by email or text message.
Reduce Cost of Ownership
The DAP-2555 provides everything an administrator needs to remotely manage Wi-Fi networks, reducing the hassle of maintaining costly on-site IT support. By leveraging the Internet, the DAP-2555 has made management of APs through physical controllers an obsolete concept, reducing network infrastructure costs and simplifying both deployment and management. Prepare to save money and resources by implementing a DAP-2555-based Wi-Fi network in your business.
