Secure, high-speed wireless networking.

Discover high-speed wireless performance and security that dramatically simplifies your network setup and management. The SonicWall Wireless Network Security solution combines high-speed wireless technology with industry-leading next-generation firewalls to provide you with enterprise-class network security and performance on your wireless network.

Extended signal performance and quality.

SonicPoint Series wireless access points give you high-speed wireless access with enhanced signal quality and reliability from a greater range. With support for IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standards, the SonicPoint Series enables your organization to use bandwidth-intensive mobile apps in higher density environments without signal degradation.

Comprehensive security.

The SonicPoint Series integrates with SonicWall next-generation firewalls to create a secure wireless solution that delivers comprehensive protection for wired and wireless networks. Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection technology scans your wireless traffic to eliminate threats, such as malware and intrusions.

Simplified integration and deployment.

SonicPoint wireless access points are simple to deploy into your new or existing network. The SonicWall firewall automatically detects and configures SonicPoints across your network, easing setup.

Centralized ongoing management.

SonicPoint wireless access points integrate tightly with SonicWall firewalls to offer a single pane of glass for wireless management and monitoring.

Low cost of ownership.

Drastically reduce the cost to add wireless into your network infrastructure. Simplified deployment, single-pane-of-glass management and no need for you to purchase a separate wireless controller drastically reduce your costs to add a wireless network.

SonicPoint feature summary

Enterprise-level wireless performance, range and reliability

Superior wireless performance and rangeThe SonicPoint ACe and SonicPoint ACi are based on the 802.11ac standard, which can achieve a data rate of up to 1.3 Gbps, or 3x that of 802.11n, while maintaining a higher performance level at greater ranges depending on environmental conditions.
Enhanced signal qualityThe 802.11ac standard operates in the 5 GHz frequency band, which has fewer wireless devices competing for airspace and is therefore less prone to signal interference. In addition, 802.11ac uses wider 80 MHz channels and has more non-overlapping channels than 802.11n, which operates in the 2.4 GHz frequency band. All of these features combined yield a higher quality signal.
Increased wireless reliabilityThe increase in bandwidth capacity and greater number of spatial streams combined with 3x3 MIMO and the improved processing offered by 802.11ac, result in more reliable wireless coverage.
FairNet wireless bandwidth allocationSonicPoints support FairNet, which guarantees a minimum amount of bandwidth to each wireless client in order to prevent disproportionate bandwidth consumption by a single user.

Comprehensive wireless security

Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection technologySonicWall next-generation firewalls tightly integrate Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection® (RFDPI) technology to scan all inbound and outbound traffic on wired and wireless networks and eliminate intrusions, spyware, viruses and other threats before they enter the network.
Wireless intrusion detection and preventionWireless intrusion detection and prevention scans the wireless network for unauthorized (rogue) access points and then the managing firewall automatically takes countermeasures, such as preventing any connections to the device.
Wireless guest servicesWireless guest services enables administrators to provide internet-only access for guest users. This access is separate from internal access and requires guest users to securely authenticate to a virtual access point before access is granted.
Lightweight hotspot messagingLightweight hotspot messaging extends the SonicWall wireless guest services model of differentiated internet access for guest users, enabling extensive customization of the authentication interface and the use of any kind of authentication scheme.
Captive portalCaptive portal forces a user's device to view a page and provide authentication through a web browser before internet access is granted.
Virtual access point segmentationAdministrators can create up to eight SSIDs on the same access point, each with its own dedicated authentication and privacy settings. This provides logical segmentation of secure wireless network traffic and secure customer access.
Cloud ACLAn extension to local ACL, cloud ACL is deployed and managed from a centralized RADIUS server in the cloud. This eliminates local ACL scalability issues, enabling organizations to configure authentication accounts based on their specific requirements. In addition, MAC authentication can be enforced on all WiFi-enabled devices even if they are not capable of 802.1x support. This adds another layer of protection to the wireless network.
Multi-RADIUS AuthenticationMulti-RADIUS Authentication provides enterprise-class redundancy by enabling organizations to deploy multiple RADIUS servers in active/passive mode for high availability. Should the primary RADIUS server fail, the managing SonicWall firewall discovers the failure and switches to the secondary server, ensuring wireless devices can continue to authenticate. Further, multi-RADIUS authentication can be supported on each virtual access point and configured for WPA-Enterprise, WPA2-Enterprise or WPA2-Auto-Enterprise mode.
Granular security policy enforcementNetwork administrators can implement and enforce firewall rules on all wireless traffic and control all wireless client communications to any host on the network — wired or wireless.

Easy setup and flexible, centralized management

Simplified setup and centralized managementSonicPoints are automatically detected, provisioned and updated by the wireless controller in the managing SonicWall SuperMassive, NSA or TZ Series firewall. WLAN administration is also handled directly from the managing firewall, simplifying setup and centralizing ongoing management.
Plenum ratedSonicPoints are plenum rated for safe installation in air-handling spaces such as in or above suspended ceilings.
Multiple power optionsSonicPoints are powered from a SonicWall IEEE 802.11at Power over Ethernet (PoE) Injector or third-party device for easy deployment where electrical outlets are not readily accessible. The SonicPoint ACe can also be powered directly through an AC adapter
Light controlsWith dimmable LEDs (excluding power), SonicPoints fit perfectly into environments that need discreet wireless coverage.
Broad standards and protocols supportSonicPoints support a wide range of wireless standards and security protocols, including 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, WPA2 and WPA. This allows organizations to leverage prior investments in devices that are incapable of supporting higher encryption standards while easing migration to 802.11ac.

Low total cost of ownership

Low TCOFeatures such as simplified deployment, single pane of glass management for both wireless and security, and no need to purchase a separate wireless controller drastically reduce an organization's cost to add wireless into a new or existing network infrastructure.
Green access pointsSonicPoints reduce costs by supporting green access points, which enables both radios to enter sleep mode for power saving when no clients are actively connected. The SonicPoint will exit sleep mode once a client attempts to associate with it.
