The bintec W1003n is an 11n access point with one dual-band radio module. The unit is a perfect match for indoor wireless infrastructures designed to provide a single frequency (2.4 or 5 GHz).
The bintec W1003n access point has three different operating modes. You can operate the device as a stand-alone access point or manage it from a central bintec WLAN Controller. The W1003n can also function as a WLAN Controller (master access point) itself to manage up to six APs. The bintec WLAN Controller solution can be used in wireless networks with anywhere from 2 to 150 access points. The bintec WLAN Controller solution provides a scalable, end-to-end solution that lets you expand your network without migrating to a new technology. This flexibility protects your investments in existing infrastructures.
The clean lines and elegant design of the W1003n make it an appealing choice for wall- or ceiling-mounting. It also looks perfectly at home in high-end office spaces, hotels, and hospitals. Despite its handsome appearance, this access point also knows how to blend in. We`ve placed the antennas inside the housing, and you can turn off the LEDs to eliminate distractions.
The included mounting hardware lets you quickly and easily mount the unit onto a ceiling or wall. For protection against theft, the W1003n is also compatible with Kensington locks. As an alternative to wall-or ceiling-mounting, you can also place the device on a desktop thanks to the included rubber feet.
Take advantage of all the benefits our optional bintec HotSpot solution has to offer when using the W1003n as a stand-alone access point or together with the WLAN Controller software. Hotspots benefit hotels and restaurants, for instance, by allowing them to provide controlled wireless access to their customers.
The W1003n also supports handover and roaming. With a properly set up and surveyed wireless network managed by a bintec WLAN Controller, that means wireless devices enjoy seamless coverage in the network. And seamless coverage is a must if you are, for instance, implementing a VoWLAN (Voice over WLAN) solution or using wireless barcode scanners for logistics applications.
The W1003n gives you green IT right out of the box with its automatic energy-saving features. If no client is connected, the AP turns off any circuits not currently in use, downshifting to mimo 1x1. The Gigabit Ethernet ports support the energy-saving 802.3az standard, ensuring only as much energy as needed is used.
In addition to the Access Point operation modes the device could be used as WLAN client for direct connecting of ethernet devices (e.g. printers), to connect ethernet devices with existing wireless LANs.
Furthermore it is possible to use the device as bridge in Point-to-Multipoint operation mode with up to eight links. By the fact that a radio module can be used as Access Point and simultaneously as Bridgelink Master, it`s easy to realize efficient Wireless Backbones. It is not possible to use a WLAN Controller at these both operating modes.
