D-Link Adds AirMagnet to Global Alliance Program to Enhance WLAN Planning and Security

12/8/09 - D-Link announced that AirMagnet has joined the D-Link Global Alliance Program (GAP) as a Solution Partner. GAP, launched earlier this year, is a formalized framework designed for both D-Link and its partners to share strengths and enhance each other's product offerings.

The small and medium-sized business and enterprise markets for wireless are growing fast as organizations increasingly replace or extend wired networks with wireless infrastructure. Until now, there has been a lack of tools to help effectively deploy a secure and reliable WLAN at business sites. This partnership allows D-Link to leverage AirMagnet's security and performance expertise to empower its reseller and end-user communities to deploy and manage business-critical wireless networks.

AirMagnet, now a part of Fluke Networks, will make its WLAN security and management products available to D-Link resellers. These products include AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer, AirMagnet Survey and AirMagnet Planner (available as a standalone version and also built into Survey PRO) for complete lifecycle management of WLAN environments.

AirMagnet Planner currently supports antenna patterns for a number of business-class D-Link access points and optional antennas to help simplify WLAN planning and modeling with D-Link devices. D-Link's most popular access points offer network administrators greater versatility with such features as detachable dual-band antennas, plenum-rated metal chassis, fire code compliance, Power over Ethernet support, the latest encryption standards for security, multiple operation modes and several management tools. AirMagnet also plans to certify and support the D-Link Xtreme N® Dual Band USB Adapter (DWA-160)* to be used with AirMagnet's industry-leading WiFi Analyzer and Survey products by the end of the year.

"With more businesses migrating to wireless, there's not only a large demand for wireless hardware, but also for the management software that helps optimize performance and ensure security. This partnership provides an unmatched solution set for WLAN deployment and management," said Dean Au, vice president and general manager for AirMagnet. "We're excited to be a member of GAP and look forward to working with D-Link and its reseller community to meet the demands of businesses around the world."

GAP provides members with a wealth of resources and support programs that facilitate the development and interoperability of their products and solutions with those from D-Link. D-Link's GAP classifies members into three different levels (Strategic, Solution, and Technology Partners), depending on the extent of need for collaboration and interoperability with D-Link's solutions. The program furthers D-Link's unique approach to and vision for open, interoperable solutions and best-of-breed innovation to provide customers with differentiated solutions to help manage their businesses.

"D-Link understands the need to be on the cutting edge of technology, that's why we developed this program. AirMagnet is a leader in the WLAN security planning and management space, and therefore a perfect fit for the program," said AJ Wang, chief technology officer, D-Link. "We look forward to co-developing and marketing these innovative solutions to the small to medium business and enterprise communities."
