SonicWall SonicWave 231c IEEE 802.11ac 1.24 Gbit/s Wireless Access Point SonicWall SonicWave series wireless access points (APs) combine high-performance IEEE 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless technology with flexible deployment options. These APs can be managed via the cloud using SonicWall WiFi Cloud Manager (WCM) or through SonicWall’s industry-leading next-generation firewalls. The result is a solution that could be untethered from the firewall to provide a superior experience for WiFi users that’s as secure as any wired connection.
The SonicWave solution is based on:
- SonicWall SonicWave series indoor and outdoor APs which support the 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless standard
- SonicWall WCM is an intuitive, cloudmanaged WiFi network management system suitable for networks of any size
- SonicWall TZ, NSa, NSsp, NSA and SuperMassive firewalls, which use deep packet inspection technology to detect and eliminate threats over wired and wireless networks
Enhanced user experience
SonicWave APs take advantage of the capabilities in 802.11ac Wave 2 and advanced RF capabilities to deliver high-speed wireless performance. MU-MIMO technology allows the APs to communicate to multiple client devices at the same time, improving the overall network performance, efficiency and user experience. In combination, mesh technology supported on SonicWave APs enables ease of installation and deployment. Mesh networks are easy to set up, effortless to expand, and require fewer cables and less manpower to deploy, reducing installation costs.
With multiple transmitting and receiving antennas, SonicWave APs are engineered to optimize signal quality, range and reliability for wireless devices. SonicWave APs supports fast roaming, so that users can roam from one location to another seamlessly. Feature-rich portfolio includes air-time fairness, band steering, and signal analysis tools for monitoring and troubleshooting.
Best-in-class wireless security
SonicWall firewalls scan all wireless traffic coming into and going out of the network using deep packet inspection technology and then remove harmful threats such as malware and intrusions, even over SSL/TLS encrypted connections. Other security and control capabilities such as content filtering, application control and intelligence and Capture Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) provide added layers of protection.
Capture ATP is our award-winning multiengine sandboxing service that features SonicWall’s patent-pending Real-Time Deep Memory Inspection (RTDMI™) technology. The RTDMI engine of Capture ATP proactively detects and blocks mass market, zero-day threats and unknown malware by inspecting directly in memory. Because of the real-time architecture, SonicWall RTDMI technology is precise, minimizes false positives, and identifies and mitigates sophisticated attacks where the malware’s weaponry is exposed for less than 100 nanoseconds.
SonicWave APs perform advanced security services, including the Content Filtering Service (CFS) and Capture ATP sandbox service independently – even where firewalls are not deployed.
Most SonicWave APs includes three radios, where the third radio is dedicated to security and performs rogue AP detection, passive scanning and packet capturing. The SonicWave solution also integrates additional security-related features including wireless intrusion detection and prevention, virtual AP segmentation, wireless guest services, RF monitoring and wireless packet capture.
