- Reviews (0)
PLANET’s WNAP-C3220A is a 300Mbps 802.11n Wireless Range Extender compliant with the 802.3af Power over Ethernet standard. The Wireless Range Extender also works in conjunction with the WAPC AP Controller Series to manage multiple access points (APs). The unit features a sleek design that can be mounted on a ceiling to help the WNAP-C3220A seamlessly camouflage into the wall or ceiling. This unique product also creates a secure, cost-effective and highly scalable wireless LAN infrastructure. It is ideal for enterprises, hotels, hospitals and home users seeking to extend wireless network coverage.
Facilitated Deployment and Wireless Access Controller Feature
To simplify wireless deployment, the WNAP-C3220A supports the AP controller function when switched to the “managed AP” mode. This unit helps wireless networks scale as new wireless access points get added to the network. With visible LED lighting, the administrator can quickly pinpoint the localization of each ceiling-mount AP. The unit also features an user-friendly, graphical configuration setup wizard and PLANET’s Smart Discovery tool to facilitate remote management and configuration.
Comprehensive Wireless Operation Mode
The WNAP-C3220A supports multiple types of wireless connectivity such as AP (Multi-SSIDs), Client, Repeater/Universal Repeater, WDS Point-to-Point (PtP) and WDS Point-to-Multipoint (PtMP), allowing users to comprehensively configure various applications. It also helps users to easily build a wireless network and extend the wireless range of an existing wireless network.
Extend the Range of Your Wireless Signal
To extend the coverage and eliminate the dead spot of wireless network in every place, the WNAP-C3220A supports not only WDS bridging but also Universal Repeater mode which can solve the incompatibility between brands and provides a high-speed, wide coverage. The built-in intelligent antennas offer 360 degrees of coverage with excellent performance.
Secure Wireless Connection
In addition to 64-/128-bit WEP encryption, the WNAP-C3220A integrates WPA/WPA2, WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK and 802.1x authority to secure and protect your wireless LAN. The WNAP-C3220A also supports Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS). Users can simply press the WPS button or input the PIN code, to allow for a secure connection between the WNAP-C3220A and wireless clients. This feature facilitates pairing even if a user does not have experience in creating a secure wireless network. In addition, the WNAP-C3220A provides wireless MAC filtering and SSID broadcasting to control and consolidate the wireless network security and prevent unauthorized wireless connection.
Modern Ceiling-Mounted Design
The WNAP-C3220A features a sleek design to help the unit blend in with ceilings or walls. The unit’s streamlined body does not offer protruding antennas for a modern aesthetic appearance without sacrificing coverage range.
Flexible Deployment with PoE Feature
The IEEE 802.3af compliant wireless access extender can utilize a single UTP cable to receive power and data. It reduces the needs for extra cables and dedicated electrical outlets on a site. The wireless AP deployment offers a flexible deployment without the restraint of requiring a power supply.
