Deploy with ease
Deploy with ease
Be up and running in minutes, provisioning your W-Series Instant Access Points (IAPs) in a few easy steps using virtually any laptop’s wireless connection. W-Series IAPs are designed to provide enterprise-class networking services without enterprise-size complexity and include an expanded wired + wireless IAP portfolio with high-end wireless features for hotspots and remote branches.

Protect your investment
As WLAN requirements grow, configuration settings can be used to easily convert the W-Series IAPs to campus APs that work with a centralized-controller architecture.
Enterprise-grade WiFi network
Combine enterprise capabilities with entry-level simplicity using WiFi network through W-Series IAPs with built-in virtual controllers. When multiple IAPs are connected, a single IAP acts as a primary virtual controller. If that controller fails, another W-Series IAP in the chain automatically takes over as the primary virtual controller without disrupting services. To expand your network, just add more W-Series IAPs. Configuration is automatically uploaded from the primary virtual controller.

The virtual controller technology is able to monitor and control critical network maintenance tasks, including:
  • Specialized Adaptive Radio Management functions that optimize WiFi client behavior, enabling IAPs to avoid RF interference
  • Auto-configuration for added IAPs
  • 802.1x authentication
  • Role- and device-based policy enforcement
  • Rogue detection
Wired + wireless instant or remote AP
Several W-Series IAP models provide both wired and wireless connectivity, ideal for small branches or teleworkers. The wired connectivity includes additional Ethernet ports to connect wired devices as well as a USB port to connect a 3G/4G modem for internet connectivity.
Confidently manage your WiFi networks
Confidently manage your WiFi networks
Securely manage and administer a W-Series IAP WiFi network from a single built-in web-based GUI.

Manage multiple W-Series IAP WiFi networks using Dell W-Series AirWave Software Management Suite (AWMS). AirWave manages local or geographically dispersed deployments and aggregates them into one console. It gives you a single, accurate picture of everything that affects service quality for your users — from the wired infrastructure to the RF environment to individual mobile devices.
Enhance RF management
Build wireless networks that adjust to how WiFi clients interact. W-Series IAPs with Dell Adaptive Radio Management (ARM) technology help ensure that data, voice and video applications have sufficient network resources to operate properly, allowing maximum client performance while enhancing stability and predictability of the entire WiFi network. ARM features include:
  • Spectrum load balancing that uniformly distributes clients across channels in high-density environments
  • Noise awareness that dynamically shifts clients away from channels hampered by outside interference
  • Band steering that enables IAPs with both radios available to dynamically transfer clients away from crowded bands and allows users to define client ratios across different bands
  • Airtime fairness that delivers equal airtime access to all WiFi clients, regardless of the client type, wireless chip or operating system
