The demand in WLAN networks is constantly increasing. The new Wi-Fi 6-enabled Access Point TEW-921DAP from Trendnet therefore uses two simultaneous frequencies. According to the manufacturer, it achieves total speeds of up to 1,800 Mbit/s. About a third come from the 2.4 GHz band, with the rest above 5 GHz.
Thanks to the support of OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access) and MU-MIMO, the AP should be able to provide more performance, especially in heavily used environments. It can be used as a conventional access point, client bridge, WDS AP, WDS bridge, WDS station or as a repeater.
The TEW-921DAP is also equipped with a 1 Gigabit Ethernet port. In addition, it can be supplied with energy both via Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) and via a normal power supply socket. But then you have to buy a separate power adapter.
In addition, the AP supports techniques such as band steering to relieve the wireless network by automatically redirecting end devices from the 2.4 band to the 5 GHz network. There is also traffic shaping, WPA3 encryption, support for up to 8 SSIDs per frequency and the option of setting up a captive portal.
According to the manufacturer, the TEW-921DAP is available now. As a reference source lists the Trade comparison platform ITscope for Germany currently only Secomp. The scope of delivery also includes a plate for mounting on a wall or ceiling.
