SonicWall Wireless Network Security solutions combine high-performance IEEE 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless technology with industry-leading next-generation firewalls. The result is a superior experience for WiFi users that’s as secure as any wired connection.
The solutions are based on:
- SonicWall SonicWave series indoor and outdoor wireless access points (APs) which support the 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless standard
- SonicWall TZ, NSA and SuperMassive firewalls, which use deep packet inspection technology to detect and eliminate threats over wired and wireless networks
SonicWave APs take advantage of the capabilities in 802.11ac Wave 2 plus features such as band steering and a built-in 2.5 GbE port to deliver high-speed wireless performance. Other features, including 4x4 MU-MIMO and beamforming, improve performance in higher density environments when using bandwidth-intensive applications such as HD multimedia, and cloud and mobile apps.
Each SonicWave access point includes three radios. One operates in the less crowded 5 GHz frequency band, reducing interference from other devices while strengthening signal reliability. Another operates in the 2.4 GHz band to support legacy 802.11b/g/n clients. The third radio is dedicated to security and performs rogue AP detection, passive scanning and packet capturing. With four transmitting and four receiving antennas plus support for 4x4 MU-MIMO, SonicWave APs are engineered to optimize signal quality, range and reliability for wireless devices including Wave 2-enabled clients.
