D-Link launches Unified Wireless AC2200 Wave 2 Tri-Band PoE Access Point

D-Link launches Unified Wireless AC2200 Wave 2 Tri-Band PoE Access Point

SYDNEY, 25 June 2019 – D-Link ANZ has launched the DWL-7620AP Unified AC Wave 2 Wireless Access Point specially designed for both small to medium businesses or larger enterprises. The new DWL-7620AP provides unparalleled bandwidth and flexibility for administrators looking to deploy a medium to large scale Wi-Fi network with manageable Tri-Band wireless LAN options and utilising the cutting-edge speed of Wireless AC Wave 2.

• The Latest Wireless Technology Wave 2 802.11ac
• Concurrent 2.4GHz and 2x 5GHz Tri-band
• Up to 2.2Gbps aggregated wireless speed1
• Two Gigabit LAN ports with Link Aggregation
• PoE+ support (802.3at)
• MU-MIMO and Bandsteering technologies
• Both Standalone or Controller Managed operational modes

The DWL-7620AP leverages the full potential of 802.11ac Wave 2 to provide unparalleled connectivity with ultra-high combined data rates. It delivers combined speeds of up to 2.2Gbps and in addition, supports Link Aggregation, which allows two Gigabit Ethernet ports to be linked together and act as a single port to double the available bandwidth and maximise the overall throughput of the access point.

Featuring a 2.4GHz and two 5GHz wireless bands to support a growing number of devices connecting to a single access point, Tri-Band technology allows older 802.11b/g/n devices to connect to the 2.4GHz band, while two 5GHz bands can be dedicated to newer, faster wireless AC devices to enjoy seamless bandwidth-intensive applications. Band steering technology efficiently load balances the clients and traffic between the three wireless bands to ensure wireless clients have a superior experience, even in high-density environments.

With support for MU-MIMO (Multi-User Multiple Input Multiple Output), the DWL-7620AP simultaneously communicates with multiple clients using multiple antennas. This allows the access point to utilise the wireless spectrum more efficiently and to significantly increase the network capacity. The 2 x 2 MU-MIMO technology takes full advantage of all streams to serve more wireless clients, dramatically improving wireless performance.

When working in conjunction with D-Link Unified Controllers, the DWL-7620AP, like other Unified Access Points in the DWL Series product line, may be centrally managed. This allows a large number of Access Points (APs) to be deployed and managed easily and efficiently. Once the APs are discovered by the Controller, the administrator can push specific set of configurations onto them, rather than having to do so one by one. In addition, RF resource management and security are also managed centrally, thus allowing the administrator to pre-emptively identify potential deficiencies and weaknesses in the network.

For small businesses that need to deploy multiple APs but lack the resources to tackle the complicated task of network management, the DWL-7620AP’s self-configuring cluster feature offers the ideal solution. When a small number of DWL-7620AP’s are deployed on the network, they may be initialised 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 16 APs may be used to form a cluster, making setting up your business wireless network particularly straightforward.

There’s also 802.11k Fast Roaming which allows wireless clients to move seamlessly between access points. 802.1p Quality of Service (QoS) provides enhanced throughput and better performance of time‑sensitive traffic like VoIP and streaming DSCP. The AP also supports Wi‑Fi Multimedia (WMM), so in the event of network congestion, time‑sensitive traffic such as video can be prioritised. Airtime Fairness ensures that equal airtime is given to each client, preventing slower devices from monopolising and degrading the wireless connection.

Also, when a DWL-7620AP senses a neighbouring device 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 minimise interference, when a nearby AP is operating on the same channel, the DWL-7620AP will automatically lower its transmission power2. When, for whatever reason, the nearby AP is no longer present, the DWL-7620AP will seamlessly increase its transmission power to expand its wireless coverage footprint.
In addition when a number of DWL-7620APs are in close proximity with each other, an access point will refuse new association requests once its resources are fully utilised and the association request will be picked up by a neighbouring unit. This ensures that no single AP is overburdened while others nearby sit idle.

Availability
The new DWL-7620AP is available now from www.dlink.com.au for an RRP of AUD$729.95, www.dlink.co.nz for an RRP of NZ$819.99 and from all authorised D-Link Partners in Australia and New Zealand.

1 Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE standard 802.11 and 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.

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

Foxtel commissions new four-part series with the Barefoot Investor Money School

Media Release: Monday June 24, 2019

Foxtel commissions new four-part series with the Barefoot Investor

Money School

Foxtel and Screen Australia announced today a new four-part documentary series from producer Essential Media with best-selling author and media commentator Scott Pape, aka the Barefoot Investor – Money School.

Premiering on Foxtel in early 2020, Money School follows behind the scenes as Scott launches a financial revolution that he hopes will change the nation – starting with kids in school.

Scott has created a brand-new money education program for primary and secondary schools, based on his best-selling books, which he hopes to eventually roll out to every school in Australia – beginning with a number of pilot schools this year.

The Barefoot Money Movement has received an overwhelming response since its launch in May, with 8991 principals and teachers supporting the initiative, and over 2000 schools, or one in five of all Australian schools, applying to be part of the program.

Scott Pape said: “Kids spend a total of around 2,300 days at school. Yet not even one of those days is dedicated to teaching them essential money skills. Debt is tearing families and communities apart – a quarter of the nation can’t repay their credit cards, and a million homeowners are under stress. It’s clear that money education needs to be better.

“Too many Australians don’t have the skills to pay the bills. Most of us had to learn these skills the hard way, because we were never taught them in school. Our kids deserve better. My goal is that by teaching the kids, we help their parents too. And when we help parents, we can change the nation.”

Wendy Moore, Foxtel Group General Manager, Lifestyle, said: “It’s incredibly rewarding for the Lifestyle team to be working with Scott to capture such a fabulous, positive movement that literally starts from the ground up. That we can take this knowledge to such a wide audience is so powerful, and the fact that it is so authentically Australian makes it a perfect project for our audience.”

Money School is produced by Essential Media exclusively for Foxtel, with principal production investment from Screen Australia.

Head of Documentary at Screen Australia, Bernadine Lim, said: “Culturally we can be hesitant to talk about our personal finance, so the premise of this documentary stood out to us as a unique opportunity to explore a touchy subject. Coupled with the fact Essential Media have a proven track record in delivering insightful Australian content that is highly accessible, Money School will definitely be one to watch.”

Well-known and respected by Australian audiences, Pape’s refreshingly real approach to money aims for financial control and security whatever your stage in life. A former investment advisor, his first book, The Barefoot Investor – The Only Money Guide You’ll Ever Need, has sold 1.6 million copies and is the highest-selling non-fiction book of the last 20 years in Australia. In September 2018 he released the follow up, The Barefoot Investor for Families which broke the record for first-week sales of non-fiction in Australia.

Money School is currently in production and will premiere on Foxtel’s Lifestyle channel early next year.
