HP M220 802.11n Access Points are dual-band, single-radio devices supporting high-speed wireless networking at 5 GHz or 2.4 GHz. They are fully compatible with the high-speed IEEE 802.11n wireless standard and backward-compatible for legacy IEEE 802.11a/b/g support.
They can run standalone or can be "clustered" for simplified administration of multiple HP M220s. With clustering, configuration changes automatically propagate across all HP M220 Access Points in your network.
Clustering technology requires no wireless controller or additional hardware. Through this, you can keep your network easily accessible yet secure.
HP M220 802.11n Access Points come with a lifetime warranty.
Secure and easy-to-use Web UI: Quick setup page: consolidates key settings into one page for simple and rapid configuration for common deployment scenarios. HTTPS secured management sessions: prevent management sessions from being observed on the network.
Fully IEEE 802.11n-compliant dual-band access point: 2.4 GHz frequency band support: uses your IEEE 802.11n wireless clients alongside legacy IEEE 802.11b/g devices. 5 GHz frequency band support: operates your IEEE 802.11n and 802.11a devices in the 5 GHz spectrum, which has less interference from microwave ovens, Bluetooth devices, and cordless phones.
IEEE 802.3af PoE-powered device (PD) option: simplifies deployment and dramatically reduces installation costs by helping to eliminate the time and cost involved in supplying local power at each access point location
Auto-MDIX: automatically adjusts for straight-through or crossover cables on the 10/100/1000 port
Spanning Tree Protocol (IEEE 802.1D): prevents network loops
IPv6 support: the M220 Access Point provides native support for IPv6, the newest version of the Internet Protocol, as well as the previous IPv4 standard
Service-class segmentation: Up to eight SSIDs (one per wireless community): allows administrator to identify multiple service sets for clients to access. Up to eight VLANs (one per wireless community): IEEE 802.1Q VLAN tagging provides security and traffic control between workgroups.
Auto channel select: helps reduce radio co-channel interference by automatically selecting an unoccupied radio channel
Wireless Distribution System (WDS): allows the M220 Access Point to connect wirelessly to other HP M220 Access Points without a wired backbone; this is useful for extending the network across areas where no wired infrastructure exists
Internal MIMO omni-directional antennas: provides omni-directional radio coverage without the need to manually adjust antenna placement
Interoperability: meets Wi-Fi Alliance certifications, including IEEE 802.11n Wi-Fi and WPA2 to help provide multivendor interoperability
Choice of IEEE 802.11i, WPA2, or WPA: locks out unauthorized wireless access by authenticating users prior to granting network access; robust Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) or Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) encryption secures the data integrity of wireless traffic
RADIUS-based user authentication: authenticates a user with a RADIUS server based on user credentials
RADIUS-based MAC authentication: authenticates a wireless client with a RADIUS server based on the MAC address of the client; this is useful for clients with minimal or no user interface
RADIUS-based VLAN assignment: places wireless client on RADIUS-assigned VLAN
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL): encrypts all HTTP traffic, allowing secure access to the browser-based management interface of the access point
