ProSafe® Dual Band Light Wireless Access Point Data Sheet
WAGL102
Intelligent Networking Features for a Scalable, Secure Solution
NETGEAR’s ProSafe Dual Band Light Wireless Access Point WAGL102 delivers the secure, reliable,
high-performance wireless local area networks (WLANs) today’s mobile workforce demands. The
WAGL102 Access Point supports both 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz 54 Mbps radio transmission in both
802.11g and 802.11a in turbo mode. It supports up to 128 simultaneous wireless clients and client
types within the same coverage area. Managed and configured by the NETGEAR Prosafe Smart
Wireless Controller, the WAGL102 is a “light” wireless access point which is part of the overall
NETGEAR ProSafe Smart Wireless Solution. The WAGL102 supports integrated IEEE 802.3af Power
over Ethernet (PoE).
Secure
Managed and configured by the NETGEAR ProSafe Smart Wireless Controller (WFS709TP), the
WAGL102 is a “light” wireless access point that implements the 802.11 standard. As part of the
centralized architecture, much of the security configuration such as WPA2-Enterprise (802.11i),
WPA2 and 802.1x support happens at the NETGEAR ProSafe WFS709TP. The NETGEAR ProSafe
Smart Wireless Controller also supports MAC address authentication, support for multiple BSSID/
VLANs and guest/contractor access.
Versatile
As part of the NETGEAR ProSafe Smart Wireless Solution, the WAGL02 is cost-effective and simple
to install and use. In addition, it’s plenum rated—appropriate for placement above drop-down
ceilings and under raised floors. Fitted with two powerful detachable 5 dBi antennas and compatible
with NETGEAR’s ProSafe 2.4 GHz antennas for expanded wireless capacity and range. Protected
with a NETGEAR Lifetime Warranty†, the WAGL102 includes the embedded IEEE 802.3af Power
over Ethernet (PoE) port which expands installation options by eliminating the need to locate the Light
Wireless Access Point near a power outlet.
