SonicPoint Deployment

Wireless Network Security scenarios

Dell SonicWALL Wireless Network Security is the ideal solution for organizations of all sizes and types looking to build a secure, high-speed wireless network. Deploying SonicPoints in combination with a Dell SonicWALL next-generation firewall provides enterprise-class wireless performance and security for businesses, schools, hospitals and other organizations.

Small Networks: Retail Store/Medical or Dental Office Deployments

Dell SonicWALL Wireless Network Security is perfect for small offices, such as retail or point of sale (POS) businesses, school classrooms, medical/dental businesses and banks. By combining SonicPoint ACe and SonicPoint ACi wireless access points with a Dell SonicWALL firewall, these organizations can quickly extend wireless network access while providing deep packet inspection for both wired and wireless traffic at the gateway before allowing access to sensitive resources. Dell SonicWALL wireless guest services offers password-enforced customer access to the Internet, while virtual access points provide logical segmentation of secure wireless network traffic and in-the-clear customer access.

Features:

  • »  SonicPoint ACe and SonicPoint ACi provide gigabit wireless performance with greater signal range and reliability.
  • »  SonicPoint wireless access points are auto-discovered and auto-configured by the central management gateway, easing deployment.
  • »  SonicPoint wireless access points enable employees to securely access network resources from the wireless network using SSL VPN or WPA2.
  • »  Virtual access points create secure segmentation between trusted and un-trusted wireless users by allowing broadcast of up to eight unique SSIDs.
  • »  Deep packet inspection technology detects and eliminates vulnerabilities and threats across all inbound and outbound wireless traffic.
  • »  Key security services, such as application control and content filtering, are enforced over the wired and wireless LANs.
  • »  Dell SonicWALL wireless guest services and lightweight hotspot messaging enable organizations to offer customers wireless Internet access from a customized authentication interface.
  • »  SonicPoints allow the dedication of one radio to rogue access detection while the other supports users, helping achieve and maintain regulatory compliance.

Distributed Networks: Enterprise/Campus Deployments

In distributed network environments that have a higher density of client associations, such as businesses with remote and branch offices, college campuses, school districts and healthcare provider networks, SonicPoint wireless access points provide superior wireless signal performance, range and quality. Employees, students and customers can securely access network resources on the wireless network using SSL VPN or WPA2. Using Dell SonicWALL GMS, administrators can centrally manage every SonicPoint across the entire network, including creating and enforcing wireless policies, which eliminates the need for a separate wireless controller and reduces the total cost of ownership.
