The W-IAP105 has dual radio, each radio capable of working in 
either 2.4 or 5GHz bands, (dual radio, dual band) and includes 
built-in internal omni-directional antennas. The W-IAP105 delivers 
300Mbps per radio, is built to provide years of trouble-free operation 
and is backed by an Extended Lifetime Warranty.

Virtual controller technology

The virtual controller technology in the Dell Networking W-IAP105 
delivers enterprise-grade controller capabilities without requiring a 
separate access point controller. The virtual controller in a single 
IAP is capable of controlling a multiple number of other IAPs in a 
network that are either local or dispersed across multiple locations. 
Like a dedicated controller, an IAP is able to perform key tasks such 
as AP auto discovery, 802.1X authentication, role- and device-based 
policy enforcement, rogue detection as well as specialized Adaptive 
Radio Management™ (ARM) that optimizes WiFi client behavior by 
making sure that IAPs stay clear of RF interference. When multiple 
IAPs are connected, a single IAP acts as a primary virtual controller. 
In the event of primary virtual controller failure, another W-Series 
IAP in a chain automatically takes on the role with no disruption 
to services. Scalability of an IAP network is bounded by Layer 2 
network design best practices. 

Ease of deployment

Dell Networking W-IAPs are designed to be up and running in 
minutes. From a laptop, simply connect wirelessly to an SSID to 
perform over-the-air provisioning in quick, easy steps. To expand the 
network, just install more Dell Networking W-IAPs — configuration 
is automatically uploaded to new units. You can dedicate one radio 
in dual-radio W-IAPs to form a wireless mesh type of network and 
eliminate cabling between W-IAPs.

Management and visibility

Multiple Dell Networking W-IAP networks can be securely and 
centrally managed by the Dell Networking W-Series AirWave 
software management suite, allowing W-IAPs to operate hundreds 
of remote locations. With Dell Networking W-Series AirWave, IT has 
real-time visibility into users, mobile devices, and wired and wireless 
LANs infrastructure, all from a single management console.

Dell also offers OpenManage Network Manager (OMNM) network 
management software with a highly customizable, easy-to-use, 
web-based console. OMNM delivers support for the full line of Dell 
Networking wired devices and W-Series wireless devices and offers 

enhanced features for traffic flow analysis, deployment, monitoring 
and management. OMNM comes with 10 free licenses; each IAP-
based network uses one license, you can use the remaining nine 
licenses for your other Dell Networking devices.

Investment protection

As WLAN requirements expand, Dell Networking W-IAPs can be 
re-imaged as 802.11n campus APs and migrate to a centralized 
Mobility Controller architecture capable of supporting hundreds 
and thousands of APs. Firmware to covert an IAP to a campus AP 
is available upon request. In addition to providing WLAN access, 
campus APs in a centralized, controller architecture can provide 
wireless intrusion protection and powerful spectrum analysis 


The W-IAP105 TAA version is compliant with the guidelines put forth 
in the Trade Agreements Act (19 U.S.C. and 2501-2581), which is 
intended to promote products either made in the USA or free-trade-
friendly countries.
