These WLAN access points extend mobile access to wired networks, broadening system capacity and providing seamless integration between wired and wireless networks. The single-radio dual-band HP A-WA2612 and A-WA2610E Access Points use the 2.4 or 5 GHz band; the dual-radio dual-band A-WA2620E and A-WA2620 Access Points operate simultaneously on both bands. All of the APs support IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, can handle up to 64 users per radio, and offer connections up to 300 Mbps when using the 802.11n standard. Employing these products as “fit” APs with an HP A series wireless access controller greatly facilitates network administration, allowing centralized management and automatic software upgrades—especially useful in large networks with many APs—while reducing network maintenance and administration resource requirements.

HP A-WA2610E Single Radio 802.11n Access Point (JD452A) Reiviews

Come with 1 RJ-45 auto-sensing 10/100/1000 PoE port(IEEE 802.3 Type 10Base-T, IEEE 802.3u Type 100Base-TX, IEEE 802.3ab Type 1000Base-T, IEEE 802.3af PoE), Duplex: 10Base-T/100Base-TX: half or full 1000Base-T: full only 1 RJ-45 serial console (only for debugging) port. In enterprise headquarters, branch offices, or campus networks, the HP A-802.11n Access Point Series is an outstanding choice for secure, reliable radio-based connections. These WLAN access points extend mobile access to wired networks, broadening system capacity and providing seamless integration between wired and wireless networks. The single-radio dual-band HP A-WA2612 and A-WA2610E Access Points use the 2.4 or 5 GHz band; the dual-radio dual-band A-WA2620E and A-WA2620 Access Points operate simultaneously on both bands. All of the APs support IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, can handle up to 64 users per radio, and offer connections up to 300 Mbps when using the 802.11n standard. Employing these products as “fit” APs with an HP A series wireless access controller greatly facilitates network administration, allowing centralized management and automatic software upgrades—especially useful in large networks with many APs—while reducing network maintenance and administration resource requirements. Centralized access point management: if the A-WA2600 series access point is used with an AC, most of management and data frames are processed by the AC; the AC controls all Fit APs by using the CAPWAP so that the status of all devices can be clearly known; compared to a traditional Fat AP, a Fit AP and an AC greatly help system administrators manage the whole network. Automatic access point version upgrades: The A-WA2600 access points can automatically communicate with the AC in a network, as well as download the latest software versions to the access point; such operations do not require manu Auto Channel Select (ACS): helps reduce radio co-channel interference by automatically selecting an unoccupied radio channel. IEEE 802.11h International Telecommunication Union (ITU) compliant: employs Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) to automatically select another channel and adjust transmit power to reduce interference with systems such as radar, if detected on that same channel. High throughput: the A-WA2600 wireless APs are compatible with latest IEEE 802.11n standard; the single-radio APs support wireless access rates as much as 300 Mbps, which is six times more than that of the traditional IEEE 802.11a/b/g products. Dual stack: IPv4 and IPv6 support future-proofs the wireless network against obsolescence. Gigabit Ethernet interface: provides a connection to the network that eliminates the network as a bottleneck. QoS and MultiMedia: IEEE 802.11e Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) wireless QoS standard—when combined with wired QoS policies—provides end-to-end QoS, delivering di Secure access control by user: media access control (MAC)-based and IEEE 802.1X network access control centralize wireless security through existing Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) servers to protect the network from unauthorized user access. Secure user isolation: virtual AP services enable the network administrator to provide specific services for different user groups, improving bandwidth and system resources and simplifying network maintenance and management. Secure access by location: location AP-based user access control helps ensure that wireless users can access.
