D-Link has launched a business-grade, cloud-managed Wi-Fi solution specifically built to meet the connectivity and security needs of small- and mid-sized businesses (SMBs). The new DAP-2555 AirPremier N Dual Band, PoE Access Point powered by CloudCommand delivers a Wi-Fi environment with core business-grade features for a fraction of what traditional enterprise solutions cost, filling the product gap between non-scalable, consumer-grade Wi-Fi products and complex, expensive enterprise platforms within the SMB market.

The D-Link DAP-2555 Access Point integrates CloudCommand, an online software platform based on network virtualization and usable security technologies. The DAP-2555 Access Point lets end users and value-added resellers (VARs) set up, secure, and manage wireless networks with multiple access points and locations to provide thorough coverage. In addition, VARs save significant time and resources by managing networks remotely through the cloud.

The ideal business environment for DAP-2555 Access Point is an organization with five to 300 users who need an affordable, wireless network that delivers broad and reliable connectivity, strong security, and guest Internet access in one easy-to-use solution. Additional key features and benefits include:

  • Deploys multiple, self-configuring access points to single or multiple locations in minutes

  • Allows remote management online, anytime, anywhere

  • Provides IT administrators individual user management with two-factor authentication and encryption

  • Manages multiple networks from a single interface and simultaneously configures all access points

  • Reviews statistics and graphic reports

  • Deploys intrusion detection

  • Receives e-mail and short message service (SMS) notifications

  • Creates a guest network with firewall protection

DAP-2555 AirPremier N Dual Band, PoE Access Point ($399 MSRP) is currently available through VARs, and includes a one-year CloudCommand subscription. More information is available at www.dlink.com.
