You Will Be Hard Pressed to Find another Solution at this Price Point for Building an Easy to Manage Multi-AP Network

SmallCloudBuilder, one of the best online resources for advice, tutorials and reviews about cloud-based products and SaaS (software as a service) for home and small business users, delivered a strong review of the D-Link’s CloudCommand-enabled access point, the DAP-2555.

Reviewer Tim Higgins studied the DAP-2555 from top to bottom and liked what he found:

Anyone who has tried to install and manage a multi-AP wireless network using browser-managed gear understands the value of centrally-managed WLANs. Unfortunately, the pricing of systems from Cisco, Meraki, Ruckus, etc. puts managed Wi-Fi systems beyond the reach of most small businesses that could benefit the most from them…

What D-Link’s partner PowerCloud Systems has done is develop a cloud-based system for managing network equipment.

His summary is highly positive:

(T)he DAP-2555 could be an attractive alternative for those looking for a cost-effective way to get a business-class multi-AP wireless LAN up and running in a hurry. Installation is dead simple…D-Link has also made the DAP-2555 easy to buy and relatively affordable.

He also understands the business model of PowerCloud Systems.  CloudCommand is a technology we’re insanely proud of, and we’re in the first days of sharing it with the world:   

(Y)ou’d be hard pressed to find another solution at this price point for building an easy to manage multi-AP network.
