Country Code

If your access point is configured for the World Regulatory Domain, it is important to set the country code to the country in which the AP will be deployed to meet regulatory requirements and for optimal wireless operation. To do this, follow these steps:

  • The country code selection is for World models only and is not available to FCC, CAN, and other country-specific models. Per FCC regulations, all Wi-Fi products marketed in the United States must be set to U.S. channels only.

The AP320 is a highly reliable high-performance 802.11n wireless access point. The AP320 provides dual concurrent 802.11b/g/n and 802.11a/n radios for 3x3:3 MIMO and dual 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports for link aggregation or link redundancy. The AP320 power management system uses smart PoE (power over Ethernet) to adjust power consumption automatically in response to the available power in different environments. Smart PoE supports the IEEE 802.3af and 802.3at standards. The multi-channel AP320 is compatible with IEEE 802.11b/g/n (2.4 GHz) and IEEE 802.11a/n (5 GHz) standards and supports a variety of Wi-Fi security protocols, including WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) and WPA2.

Install the AP320

Using the mounting plate and track clips, you can mount the AP320 to the tracks of a dropped ceiling grid. Using just the mounting plate, you can mount the AP320 to any surface that supports its weight (2 lb., 0.9 kg)

You can also mount the AP320 on a table using the four rubber feet that ship with the product. Peel the rubber feet off the adhesive sheet and press a foot onto each underside corner of the device.

Hardware Components

You can see the hardware components for the AP320 in the following illustration, and read about them in the descriptions below.

  • The rear surface of the AP320 is used for heat dissipation to reduce the internal temperature. Consequently, it can become hot, so use caution when handling it.
