MIDDLETOWN, Pa., July 14, 2015 – Legrand, the global specialist in electrical
and digital building infrastructures, has introduced the DA1104, a new 802.11ac
wireless access point
designed for the increasing bandwidth demands found in
today’s connected homes.  Built for in-celling installation, the dual-band DA1104
delivers the fastest WiFi speeds and uses Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology
to provide data and power over a single Ethernet cable to simplify installation.

“We continue to focus on delivering home solutions for entertainment,
comfort, safety and convenience, as well as the supporting infrastructure, to
address the ever-changing needs of the homeowner’s spaces,” noted Fritz
Werder, VP & General Manager for the company’s On-Q and Nuvo lines.  “As
such, this newest wireless access point offers the highest network performance
to create the smoothest user experience possible.”

           According to Werder, the DA1104 represents the latest in wireless
transmission standards and features.  Its dual band capabilities allow for
transmitting over both the 2.4GHz and the 5GHz frequency bands, resulting in
reduced interference and enabling single stream speeds of up to 867Mbps with
up to 1.2Gbps of total streaming capacity.

Incorporating MU-MIMO (multiple user - multiple input/multiple output), the
DA1104 can support multiple streams to multiple clients concurrently, perfectly
matching the typical use scenarios in today’s connected, bandwidth-intensive
homes.  The DA1104 also employs beamforming, a directional signal
transmission technique that aims the WiFi signal at its active clients, improving
both the range and performance levels when compared with the omnidirectional
antennas typically found in wireless access points.

The DA1104 mounts in a traditional 3-gang box and ships with a low
profile, paintable ceiling cover plate so as to blend in smoothly with any décor.
