SonicWALL SonicPoint-N Dual-Radio:

Overview:

High-performance clean wireless solutions

The demands on organizations' wireless networks—such as increased connection counts, bandwidth consumption, need for seamless roaming and extended perimeters—are all taxing on network performance, and complicate the management of existing 802.11 wireless network infrastructures. The challenge facing many businesses is how to preserve compatibility with legacy 802.11 technologies; enhance and optimize wireless networks through centralized management and control across all nodes of the WLAN while at the same time, maintaining maximum security.

The SonicWALL® Clean Wireless™ solutions combine high-performance 802.11n technology with enterprise-class network security appliances to deliver unparalleled wireless network security and performance, while dramatically simplifying the set-up and management of any 802.11-based wireless network.

The solution is based on SonicWALL SonicPoint-N Series (SonicPoint-Ni Dual-Band, SonicPoint-Ne Dual-Band and SonicPoint-N Dual-Radio) wireless access points, which support the IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n standards, to provide secure, higher speed access to data, voice and video over highbandwidth wireless LANs. Scalable to networks of any size, SonicPoint-N wireless access points require no pre-configuration, as they are centrally configured and managed by any current SonicWALL firewall – no additional wireless access controller is required.

The seamless integration of wireless access points with best-in-class Next-Generation Firewall or Unified Threat Management Firewall security featuring advanced application intelligence and control technology ensures that wireless traffic is scrutinized with the same intensity as wired network traffic. As a result, IT administrators can build and easily manage high-performance, distributed wireless networks with unified policy management across both the wireless and wired networks.

Product Highlights:

  • Comprehensive wireless security
  • Exceptional wireless performance
  • Central WLAN management
  • Enhanced wireless reliability
  • Flexible wireless deployment options
  • Virtual Access Point (VAP) segmentation
  • Broad protocol support
  • Granular security policy enforcement
  • Discreet wireless access point deployment
  • FairNet wireless bandwidth allocation

Features and Benefits:

  • Comprehensive wireless security features include Wireless Intrusion Detection Services (WIDS), wireless firewalling, secure Layer 3 wireless roaming, IEEE 802.11d multi-country roaming, and integrated Wireless Guest Services (WGS) to enforce password access for customers and other third-party guests.
  • Exceptional wireless performance features include 40 MHz channels and packet aggregation to support data rates of up to 600 Mbps. Dual-Radio and Dual-Band supports operation on either 2.4 GHz or 5.0 GHz networks.
  • Central WLAN management can be administered using SonicWALL SuperMassive™ E10000, E-Class Network Security Appliance (NSA) , NSA and TZ Series firewalls, and requires no pre-configuration of the SonicPoint-N devices.
  • Enhanced wireless reliability is delivered using Multiple-Input Multiple-Out (MIMO) technology that uses multiple antennas as both the transmitter and the receiver to enhance throughput and reliability.
  • Flexible wireless deployment options include wall or ceiling mounting. SonicPoint-N Series wireless access points can receive power from a SonicWALL Power over Ethernet (PoE) Injector or third party device for easy deployment where electrical outlets are not readily accessible. (SonicPoint-Ni Dual-Band and SonicPoint-Ne Dual-Band require IEEE 802.3af PoE; SonicPoint-N Dual-Radio requires IEEE 802.3at PoE.) SonicPoint-N Dual-Radio and SonicPoint-Ne Dual-Band access points can also be powered directly through an AC adapter.
  • Virtual Access Point (VAP) segmentation enables up to eight SSIDs to have dedicated authentication and privacy settings while sharing the same physical infrastructure, providing logical segmentation of secure wireless network traffic and secure customer access.
  • Broad protocol support includes 802.11 a/b/g/n, WPA2 and WPA, allowing businesses to leverage prior investments in devices that are incapable of supporting higher encryption standards, while easing migration to 802.11n.
  • Granular security policy enforcement allows the implementation of firewall rules to all wireless traffic, and controls all wireless client communications to any host on the network—wired or wireless.
  • Discreet wireless access point deployment features light and logo covers, controllable LED (except power) and internal antennas (on SonicPoint-Ni models).
  • FairNet wireless bandwidth allocation guarantees a minimum amount of bandwidth to each wireless client in order to prevent disproportionate bandwidth consumption by a single user.
