Multi-Mode Makes the Most of your Network Capabilities

In order to achieve optimal network performance, the DAP-2720 has several operational modes tailored to best fit the individual needs of your network. Access Point, Wireless Client, WDS (Wireless Distribution System), and WDS with Access Point modes allow for flexible, customisable deployment whatever your requirements.

  • Access Point
    Add wireless access to your existing wired network.
  • Wireless Client
    Add wireless functionality to a device which does not have a Wi-Fi adapter.
    *Note: this should only be 1 device connected to the DAP.
  • WDS
    Wirelessly connect two separate networks.
  • WDS with AP
    Wirelessly connect two separate networks while also providing wireless access to both networks.


Get Your Network up to Speed

The DAP-2720 is built to handle bandwidth-intensive applications involving numerous clients. It delivers a high-speed wireless AC Wave 2 connection reliably, with maximum wireless signal rates of up to 2200Mbps. Performance is further optimised via the Nuclias Connect platform which adjusts the
DAP-2720’s channel selection, transmission power, and maximum number of client connections.


Take a Load Off and Let Your AP do the Hard Work

The DAP-2720’s Load Balancing feature spreads the work load between two or more Access Points to get optimal resource utilisation, throughput and response time, while Airtime Fairness helps distribute equal amounts of air time to each connected client. Band Steering auto-connects devices such as smart phones and tablets to the higher-capacity 5GHz band while allowing devices 2.4GHz-ready to remain. The result is a steady, consistent connection for each user – the perfect balancing act.

Expand your Network with Budget in Mind

Nuclias Connect’s evolving software-based management capabilities allow you to invest in the DAP-2720 confident that as your business growth expands, your network will, too. Manage up to 1000 Access Points from a single central location, wherever you are, whenever you want.



AP discovery and provisioning

Nuclias Connect provides direct AP discovery and provisioning when it shares the same Layer-2/Layer-3 network with a given AP, allowing users to find APs and import profiles with minimum effort, which can be applied as needed to groups or individual APs for even more effective configuration.

  • Easily discover standalone access points in layer 2 and layer 3 networks
  • Change the configuration of individual access points and save the profile to deploy to multiple access points
  • Setup and provisioning is further streamlined with AP auto-discovery on Layer 2 and 3 networks

Peak Performance and Discreet Deployment with Power over Ethernet

The DAP-2720’s Power over Ethernet (PoE) function allows for easy installation and a simple, clean setup. No need to run extra power lines, no added hassle when configuring your hardwiring and no more cable clutter. Perfect for advanced installations in areas where power outlets are not readily available.

Make Every Second Count with Advanced Quality of Service (QoS)

The DAP-2720 not only delivers reliable wireless performance with maximum wireless signal rates of up to 400Mbps in the 2.4GHz band and 866 Mbps in the 5GHz bands but, Quality of Service (QoS) support also enhances your network’s efficiency. QoS cleverly prioritises network traffic so that time-sensitive data, such as VoIP or high-quality video streaming, are unaffected even during bursts of high data traffic.
This allows for an all-round smoother, uninterrupted Wi-Fi experience.


Complete Control over your Network’s Access

Complete control comes as standard with the DAP-2720. Combined with the Nuclias Connect Software, a variety of the latest in network security and management tools are at your fingertips. You can rest assured that the best of the best are hard at work keeping your network protected and hitch free.

Customisable Captive Portal
Separate guest and employee access
  • MAC Filtering - Limit what devices can connect
  • Rogue AP Detection - Guard against unauthorised Access Point installation
  • Wireless LAN Segmentation - Better bandwidth utilisation
  • Wireless Isolation - Limit what users access on the local network
  • Wireless Broadcast Scheduling - Automate when your network is available
  • SSID Broadcast Disabling - Hide your wireless for an extra layer of security




Big Things Start Small

Networks big or small all have to start somewhere, with devices sometimes having to take on duties that would not normally be expected of them. For the DAP-2720 that is not a problem since its stand-alone capabilities mean it can take on multiple roles effortlessly. It can be deployed within a small office or classrooms, for example, to create or expand the capacity of a wireless network.


The Beating Heart of Your Network

At the heart of your network is the DNH-100 Wireless Controller, or ‘The Hub’. It centralises all aspects of your Access Points’ provisioning and management, allowing them to work together as a team. Features such as self-organising, self-optimising and self-healing keep the network performing at its peak.
