D-Link, the networking solutions provider for small business and medium enterprise IT environments, today announced its first 802.11ac solutions in a new line of standalone business-class access points – the AC1750 Concurrent Dual Band Access Point with PoE (DAP-2695) and the AC1200 Dual Band Access Point (DAP-1665). The DAP-2695 offers network administrators secure and manageable dual-band wireless LAN options utilizing the cutting-edge speed of 802.11ac wireless technology, along with premium features such as support for Power over Ethernet (PoE) and a plenum-rated housing. Designed for budget conscious IT managers, the DAP-1665 offers cutting-edge 802.11ac performance without the premium features.
“More and more network administrators are looking at wireless LANs (WLANs) as an integral part of the core network due to the convergence of new performance requirements and the emerging 802.11ac standard,” said Mike Hardy, vice president of channel and enterprise sales, D-Link Systems, Inc. “D-Link’s new 802.11ac Access Points offer versatile and high performing solutions for small- to medium-sized businesses with network infrastructures that are ready to upgrade from 802.11n.”
About the DAP-2695 AC1750 Access Point with PoE
The DAP-2695 delivers reliable, high-speed wireless performance using the latest 802.11ac standards with maximum wireless signal rates of up to 450 Mbps over the 2.4 GHz band and 1300 Mbps over the 5 GHz band1. Wireless AC performance coupled with Wi-Fi Multimedia™ (WMM) support and Quality of Service (QoS) feature make the access point ideal for high-demand business applications. The DAP-2695 also supports band steering and airtime fairness. When enabled, band steering detects and steers 5 GHz capable clients away from the overcrowded 2.4 GHz network to the less congested 5 GHz network. Airtime fairness allocates time equally among clients, so each client can transmit at its highest speed regardless of location or 802.11 standard version. The DAP-2695 allows small and medium businesses and enterprise network administrators to deploy a highly manageable and extremely robust simultaneous dual-band wireless network. Additional features include:
- Highly Secure Network – Maintains a highly secure network with a range of features including WPA/WPA2, Wireless LAN segmentation, and VLAN support
- Flexible Operation – Supports a range of modes including an Access Point, Wireless Distribution System (WDS) with Access Point, a WDS/Bridge, or Wireless Client
- Placement Flexibility – Plenum-rated, offers two Gigabit Ethernet ports, and has integrated 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE) support
- Network Management – Provides multiple options including web (HTTP), Secure Socket Layer, Secure Shell and Telnet; offers D-Link AP Manager II, or D-View SNMP management module to configure multiple access points from a single location
- Leading Industry Support – Comes with the D-Link Limited Lifetime Warranty
About the DAP-1665 AC1200 Dual Band Access Point
With a street price typically under $100, the DAP-1665 is an affordable, high-powered 802.11ac access point capable of delivering combined speeds of up to 1200 Mbps1 over two bands. Use the 2.4 GHz band’s 300 Mbps for web surfing, email and chat, while simultaneously using the lower-interference 5 GHz band’s 867 Mbps for network bridging, downloading, video streaming, and file transfers. For wired connections, the DAP-1665’s Gigabit LAN port enables wired data speeds of up to 1000 Mbps to bring wireless AC performance to Gigabit-compatible wired devices. Additional features include:
- Wireless and Wired LAN – Offers the latest 802.11ac wireless technology and is backwards-compatible with 802.11n/g/a clients; two external antennas increase range
- Multiple Operation Modes – Operates as an access point, bridge, bridge with access point, repeater, or wireless client, giving the flexibility to meet a variety of networking requirements
- Robust Wireless Security – Complete set of security encryption standards including WPA/WPA2 to safeguard against network intruders and Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) to easily add new wireless devices

1 Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE standard 802.11 and draft 802.11ac specifications. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, and network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors will adversely affect wireless signal range.
One of the hottest areas in cloud right now is DRaaS and related offerings. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Dale Levesque, Disaster Recovery Product Manager with Windstream's Cloud and Data Center Marketing team, will discuss the benefits of the cloud model, which far outweigh the traditional approach, and how enterprises need to ensure that their needs are properly being met.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

Updating DevOps to the latest production data slows down your development cycle. Probably it is due to slow, inefficient conventional storage and associated copy data management practices. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in Product and Solution at Tintri, will talk about DevOps and cloud-focused storage to update hundreds of child VMs (different flavors) with updates from a master VM in minutes, saving hours or even days in each development cycle. He will also...
