    • Overview

      The D-Link® DAP-3690 AirPremier® N Outdoor Dual Band PoE Access Point is a versatile, high power outdoor access point designed with harsh weather resistant features making it an ideal solution for creating outdoor wireless hot spot networks. In addition to outdoor, it can be installed in environments where flexible wireless access and harsh conditions exists including; manufacturing plants, industrial automation, convention halls, stadium facilities, airports, school campuses, golf courses, marinas or virtually any venue requiring a robust wireless solution.

    • Versatile Access Point

      Detachable antennas provide flexibility and optimal wireless coverage in both 2.4GHz (802.11 b/g/n) and 5GHz (802.11 a/b/g/n) bands. Designed for outdoor deployments, the DAP-3690 includes a broad range of harsh environment features such as IP67 water/dust proof housing, wide operating temperature range, built in heater and power surge arrestor to withstand all elements. Easy installation is realized with integrated 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, eliminating the need for power outlets and the included wall and pole mounting kits minimize installation time making the DAP-3690 quick to deploy.

    • Multiple Operation Modes

      The DAP-3690 can be configured to optimize network performance based on any one of its multiple operation modes: Access Point, Wireless Distribution System (WDS) with Access Point, WDS, and Wireless Client.  Also included are advanced features such as Load Balancing, which optimizes high network traffic volume, and redundancy for fail-safe wireless connectivity. Additionally, the DAP-3690 offers Spanning Tree Protocol support for greater efficiency and to avoid broadcast storms when used in WDS mode.
    • Enhanced Performance

      The DAP-3690 delivers reliable wireless performance with with maximum wireless signal rate of up to 300 Mbps in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless band.  Additionally,support for Wi-Fi Multimedia™ (WMM) Quality of Service (QoS) features, make this device an ideal access point for audio, video, and voice applications.

      When enabled, QoS allows the DAP-3690 to automatically prioritize traffic according to the level of interactive streaming, such as Voice over IP(VoIP). The QoS feature also provides a drop-down menu option to customize priority settings. The load balance feature in this device also ensures maximum performance by setting a limit for the total number of users per access point.
    • Security

      To help maintain a secure wireless network, the DAP-3690 provides the latest in wireless security technologies by supporting both Personal and Enterprise versions of WPA™ and WPA2™ (802.11i) with support for a RADIUS server backend. To further protect your wireless network, MAC Address Filtering, Wireless LAN Segmentation, Disable SSID Broadcast, Rogue AP Detection, and Wireless Broadcast Scheduling are also included. The DAP-3690 includes support for up to 16 VLANs per band to implement multiple SSIDs to further help segment users on the network. It also includes a wireless client isolation mechanism, which limits direct client-to-client communication.
    • Network Management

      Network administrators have multiple options for securely managing the DAP-3690 including Web (HTTP/HTTPS), Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), Secure Shell (SSH), and Telnet and a RJ-45 console port. For advanced network management, administrators can use the D-Link AP Manager II, AP Array, or D-View SNMPv3 management module to configure and manage multiple access points from a single location. In addition to a streamlined management process, both AP Manager II and D-View provide network administrators with the means to verify and conduct regular maintenance checks remotely, eliminating the need to send out personnel to physically verify proper operation.

      With simultaneous dual band functionality, PoE support, extensive manageability, versatile operation modes, and solid security enhancements, the D-Link AirPremier N Dual Band Outdoor PoE Access Point (DAP-3690) provides SMB and enterprise environments
      with a business class solution for deploying a wireless network in outdoor environments.
