The DWL-8710AP is an outdoor dual-band Wireless AC1200 Access Point designed specifically for deployment in business and campus environments. The DWL-8710AP can be installed on a wall or pole with the included mounting brackets. The DWL-8710AP is IP67-compliant and is designed to operate in harsh outdoor environments. For easy installation, it has integrated 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, allowing installation of this device in areas where power outlets are not readily available. Highly manageable and capable of blazing speeds, the DWL-8710AP integrates seamlessly into an existing network infrastructure and can be easily scaled to meet future demands.

Greater Reach and Flexibility

The DWL-8710AP provides unparalleled connectivity by using a 2x2 antenna implementation, allowing high combined data rates of 1167 Mbps (AC867 Mbps + N300 Mbps) over the air. Beamforming technology enables the DWL-8710AP to have even greater reach than its predecessor, allowing even more flexibility in any deployment scenario. With the 802.11n/ac technology, the DWL-8710AP provides the high performance over two bands, so wireless clients can stream media faster and farther than before using existing devices.

Centrally Manage your Wireless Network

When working in conjunction with D-Link Unified Switches/Controllers, the DWL-8710AP can be centrally managed. This allows for a large number of APs to be deployed and managed easily and efficiently. Once the APs are discovered by the switch/controller, the administrator can push specific configuration sets onto them rather than having to do so individually. In addition, RF resource management and security are also managed centrally, allowing the administrator to preemptively identify potential deficiencies and weaknesses in the network.

Self-Configuring Cluster

For small businesses that need to deploy multiple APs but lack the resources to tackle the complicated task of network management, the DWL-8710AP’s self-configuring cluster feature offers the ideal solution. When a small number of DWL-8710APs are deployed on the network, they may be configured to form a self-configuring cluster. Once the administrator configures one access point, the same configuration can then be applied to all remaining APs. Up to 8 APs may be used to form a cluster, making setting up your business wireless network a breeze.

Upgraded for Superior Performance

The DWL-8710AP features a more powerful CPU, giving it a performance boost over its predecessor. The external high gain omnidirectional antennas increases its reach, eliminating dead spots and filling hard to reach places. Bandsteering technology enables the AP to balance the load between its two radios rather than forcing all users onto the 2.4 GHz band, allowing for smooth streaming of video, instant transmission of SMS and e-mail, and fast downloads for mobile devices.

Automatic RF Management

When a number of access points are deployed close to each other, interference may result if proper RF management isn’t implemented. When a DWL-8710AP senses a neighbor nearby, it will automatically select a noninterfering channel. This greatly reduces RF interference and will allow the administrator to deploy APs more densely. To further minimize interference, when a nearby AP is operating on the same channel, the DWL-8710AP will automatically lower its transmission power2. When, for whatever reason, the nearby AP is no longer present, the DWL-8710AP will increase its transmission power to expand coverage.

Quality of Service

The DWL-8710AP supports 802.1p Quality of Service (QoS) for enhanced throughput and better performance of time-sensitive traffic like VoIP and streaming DSCP. The DWL-8710AP is WMM-certified, so in the event of network congestion, time-sensitive traffic can be given priority ahead of other traffic. Furthermore, when a number of DWL-8710AP units are in close proximity to each other, an access point will refuse new association requests once its resources are fully utilized, allowing the association request to be picked up by a neighboring unit. This feature ensures that no single AP is overburdened while others nearby sit idle.


1 Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE standard 802.11 and draft 802.11ac specifications. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, and network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors will adversely affect wireless signal range. 

This feature is available when Unified AP is used in conjunction with D-Link’s line of Unified Wireless Switches/controllers.
