SonicWALL SonicPoint is a simple yet unique wireless solution that will combine high-performance 802.11n technology with SonicWALL's line of network security appliances to deliver unparalleled wireless security and performance while simplifying the set-up and management of any 802.11-based wireless network. Effortlessly incorporating wireless access points with best in-class Next-Generation Firewall security and Application Intelligence and Control technology, Clean Wireless solutions scrutinize wireless traffic with the same intensity as wired network traffic, allowing IT administrators to retain control over their entire network.
Superior wireless performance
The SonicPoint Series models — SonicPoint ACe, SonicPoint ACi and SonicPoint N2 — provide high-speed wireless access with enhanced signal quality and reliability from greater range. With support for IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standards, the SonicPoint Series enables the use of bandwidth-intensive mobile apps, such as HD video and voice, in higher density environments without signal degradation.
The SonicPoint Series integrates with Dell SonicWALL next-generation firewalls to create a secure wireless solution that delivers comprehensive protection for wired and wireless networks. Using Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection technology, Dell SonicWALL firewalls scan all wireless traffic coming into and going out of the wireless network and eliminate threats, such as malware and intrusions.
SonicPoint wireless access points are simple to deploy into a new or existing network. Dell SonicWALL SuperMassive, E-Class NSA, NSA and TZ Series firewalls feature an integrated wireless controller that automatically detects and configures SonicPoints across the network. SonicPoints also have a plenum-rated chassis for safe installation in a wide variety of environments.
SonicPoint wireless access points work together with a Dell SonicWALL firewall to offer a single pane of glass for wireless management and monitoring, lowering the total cost of infrastructure ownership. The same set of security policies can be enforced over both wired and wireless networks. For increased flexibility, SonicPoints even allow for the dedication of one radio for wireless intrusion detection and prevention scanning to meet compliance mandates, while the other continues to support users.
By simplifying deployment, delivering single-pane-of-glass management for both wireless and security, and eliminating the need to purchase a separate wireless controller, the SonicPoint Series models drastically reduce the cost to add wireless into a network infrastructure.
