D-Link launches long range WiFi Wireless Bridge
D-Link A/NZ has launched its DAP-3712, a Long-Range Wi-Fi 5 Wireless Bridge capable of enabling Point-to-Point or Point-to-Multipoint connections up to 20km apart. The DAP-3712 is an invaluable solution in providing reliable, long-distance connectivity between multiple sites such as office branches, construction sites or transportation hubs, in both rural and busy city areas. Using proven Wi-Fi 5 technology with speeds of up to 867Mbps and it’s easy to install design, the DAP-3712 Long Range Wireless Bridge from D-Link’s Business Solutions range offers a compelling connectivity solution versus expensive Fibre-based offerings.
The DAP-3712 features state-of-the-art hardware, including a high-gain 23 dBi directional antenna helping to provide strong and stable Wireless connectivity. The DAP-3712 also employs Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology, meaning that the unit can be powered via an Ethernet cable up to 100m away from a PoE-enabled Switch or Power Injector, which is extremely useful as power sockets can be difficult to come by in ceiling cavities or in outdoor deployment scenarios.
The DAP-3712 Wireless Bridge not only is designed to perform across long ranges, but is designed to perform long-term, braving the elements with an IP66-rated housing, providing both water and dust resistance, along with 8kV surge protection to protect the unit itself from lightning strikes and power surges.
In terms of installation, the DAP-3712 Long Range Wireless Bridge also has you covered with built-in Signal Strength and Alignment LED’s that allow you easily align the antenna with another over long distances, saving you specialised installation service costs. Of course, D-Link Business Solutions are all backed with a Limited Lifetime Warranty and excellent support services.
