Wireless Unified 802.11n Access Point
The DWL-8600AP is D-Link’s next generation Unified
Access Point supporting the IEEE 802.11n standard.
Versatile and powerful, this device can be flexibly
deployed as a stand-alone "fit" wireless Access Point
or as a "thin" managed Access Point (AP) manageable
from a wireless switch. Businesses can start with an
intelligent DWL-8600AP that provides many advanced
Wireless LAN functions, then migrate to a centrally
managed system anytime later by integrating the
same DWL-8600AP to a D-Link unified wired/wireless
switch.
Blazing Wireless Speeds
802.11n offers up to six times increased throughput
when compared with existing 802.11a/g networks.
The DWL-8600AP is also fully backwards compatible
with 802.1a/b/g clients and allows for a 2x2:2*
configuration with two Tx and Rx streams for each
radio. Multiple In Multiple Out (MIMO) and wider
bandwidth channels increase physical transfer rates
while using 802.11. MIMO allows for more information
to be coherently resolved by using several antennas
instead of a single antenna. By employing the DWL8600AP today, you can prepare your business for the
future generation of wireless devices and mobile
applications.
Green Technology & Advanced Power Saving
The DWL-8600 features scheduled and unscheduled
Automatic Power Save Delivery (APSD). Unscheduled
APSD (U-APSD) is a power management method
that is more efficient than older 802.11 Power Save
Polling. The primary benefit of U-APSD is that it allows
for the voice client to synchronize the transmission
and reception of voice frames with the AP, thereby
allowing the client to go into power saving mode
when not sending or receiving packets. The DWL8600AP is fully compliant with 802.3af even when
operating at maximum power. Unlike 802.11n Access
Points from other manufacturers that require PoE+ or
802.3at when enabling both radios, the DWL-8600AP
thus showcases D-Link’s continuous commitment to
green technology.
compliant switch and router. Advanced wireless
functions that the DWL-8600AP supports include:
WEP data encryption, WPA/WPA2 security, client
MAC address filtering, AP load balancing, QoS/WMM
(Wireless Multimedia), and Rogue AP Detection.
Security configuration settings can be locally stored
on the DWL-8600AP itself. Wireless connections can
easily be expanded by adding more DWL-8600APs
or other 802.11a/g/n compliant APs to the site.
With AP Clustering, up to 8 APs can form a cluster
for convenient management and configuration of
all APs. Businesses without complicated network
requirements can use the DWL-8600AP to get a
wireless network set up and run without the need for
any additional special hardware.
"Thin" AP Centrally Managed From Unified Wired/
Wireless Switch
Alternatively, the DWL-8600AP can operate in
conjunction with a D-Link DWS-4026 unified wired/
wireless switch. In this mode, multiple DWL-8600APs
can connect directly or indirectly to one of these
switches to provide unparalleled security and wireless
mobility for wireless clients. Each DWL-8600AP will
be continually tuned by these switches to provide
optimal RF channels and transmission power for all
mobile clients, giving them the best wireless signals
in both 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz bands and uninterrupted
wireless connectivity.
Flexible Dualband Wireless LAN Connectivity
The DWL-8600AP delivers concurrent wireless
performance with maximum wireless signal rates in
both frequency bands simultaneously. With dualband
connectivity, two wireless networks are created both
running at full bandwidth speeds, offering a significant
increase in total network capacity. At the same time,
the DWL-8600AP remains fully backward compatible
with the 802.11b standard in the 2.4GHz frequency.
Self Configuration and Easy Installation
When operating in conjunction with a DWS-4026
switch, the switch automatically configures every
connected “thin” DWL-8600AP, so no configuration
is necessary during installation. If a DWL-8600AP
needs to be replaced, the replacement DWL-8600AP
automatically inherits the same configuration, making
the replacement process a simple one
Intelligent "Fit" Access Point
The DWL-8600AP has everything on-board that
enables network administrators to set up a secure
wireless network and to connect to any Ethernet AxB:C; A=max. number of transmitting antennas, B=max. number of receiving
antennas, and C=max. number of data streams.

DWL-8600AP
Wireless Unified 802.11n Access Point
Optimal Wireless Performance
The architecture of most current wireless LAN
controllers requires wireless traffic to return to
the controller for centralized processing, providing
unnecessary traffic delay. The DWL-8600AP –
when operating with a DWS-4026 switch – offers
administrators extra options. Depending on the
wireless application, wireless traffic can either be
tunneled back to the switch for better security control,
or locally forwarded at the Access Point for optimal
performance. This device offers administrators
maximized flexibility with options to tunnel guest
traffic to the switch for centralized security control,
and forward VoIP traffic directly from the Access
Point for optimal performance. The DWL-8600AP
furthermore supports AP Clustering and Wireless
Distribution System (WDS). WDS allows for the AP
to act as a wireless bridge, connecting two different
networks to each other without the need for a cable.
Total Security & Quality of Service
The DWL-8600AP continuously scans both frequency
bands and their associated channels to detect rogues
while simultaneously providing wireless connectivity
to mobile clients. If a rogue is detected, it reports the
result to the DWS-4026 wireless switch that manages
it. From a management console, administrators can
identify the rogue AP and take appropriate action.
The DWL-8600AP supports 64/128/152-bit WEP data
encryption, WPA/WPA2 security and multiple SSID
per RF frequency band. Connected to the DWS-4026
switch, these functions along with wireless user MAC
Address Filtering and SSID Broadcast Disable can be
used to set up security and limit outsiders’ access
to the internal network. The DWL-8600AP supports
802.1Q VLAN Tagging and WMM (Wi-Fi Multimedia)
for important wireless transmissions such as VoIP
and streaming media applications, delivering critical
user-based services, such as prioritized delivery of
voice traffic.

Maximum wireless signal rate 300Mbps and 54Mbps is based on IEEE 802.11n and 802.11a/g specifications, respectively. Actual
data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and
construction, and network overhead can lower actual data throughput rate.
2
MCS Index: The Modulation and Coding Scheme (MCS) index determines the number of spatial streams, the modulation, the coding
rate, and data rate values. MCS Index is only available for 802.11n standard.
3
GI: A Guard Interval (GI) between symbols helps receivers overcome the effects of multipath delays. A GI of 400ns is also called
Short Guard Interval (SGI).
