The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
Wireless Switch Dualband Access Point
Article code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product code if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
Category :
With a WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) access point you can build your own wireless network and share network resources like printers and storage space. You can even share one internet connection with your entire wireless local area network by connecting your access point (by Ethernet) to your (A)DSL or cable modem with built in router/DHCP server!

Data-sheet quality: created/standardized by Icecat
The quality of the data-sheets can be on several levels:
only logistic data imported: we have only basic data imported from a supplier, a data-sheet is not yet created by an editor.
created by D-Link: a data-sheet is imported from an official source from a manufacturer. But the data-sheet is not yet standardized by an Icecat editor.

Marketing text D-Link Wireless Switch Dualband Access Point

The official marketing text of D-Link Wireless Switch Dualband Access Point as supplied by the manufacturer
The small form factor DWL-8220AP increases wireless LAN secure mobility, supports dualband WLAN connectivity, and provides client access to the functions of the AirPremier® MobileLAN™ DWS-1008 Wireless Switch. Each DWL-8220AP continually tunes itself for optimal RF channel and transmit power to provide all mobile clients with the best wireless signal in both the 802.11a and 802.11g bands.

Individual DWL-8220APs have no local storing of any data so they can be safely installed in unsecured areas without fear of hacking or theft. The DWS-1008 Wireless Switch is the hardware that stores vital network and user information in plain site and is typically stored in a secure location. DWL-8220APs can link to DWS-1008s directly or through the existing wired network - even across Layer 3 boundaries – and receive Power over Ethernet (PoE) from directly connected DWS-1008s or third-party PoE switches or PoE injectors/midspans.

The DWS-1008 Wireless Switch automatically configures every connected DWL-8220AP so that no configuration is necessary during installation. If a DWL-8220AP needs to be replaced, the replacement DWL-8220AP automatically inherits the same configuration, making the replacement process analogous to changing a light bulb. These plenum-rated DWL-8220APs intentionally resemble smoke detectors to minimize visibility. With no protruding antennas and no obvious hallmarks of an AP, DWL-8220APs are less likely to be tampered with. For added protection, all APs feature a built-in security lock interface.

DWL-8220APs play a key role in rogue detection– they continuously scan both bands and their associated channels to root out rogues while simultaneously providing wireless connectivity to mobile clients. If a rogue is detected, the closest DWL-8220AP can launch RF Countermeasures by spoofing 802.11 control messages. This prevents clients from communicating, associating and authenticating with a rogue.

For important wireless transmissions such as VoIP related applications, DWL-8220APs also deliver critical user-based services, such as prioritized delivery of voice traffic. Supporting multiple queues per user, DWL-8220APs always prioritize expedited traffic such as voice calls.
