SonicWALL SonicPoint Wireless
Wireless Networking Secure, Simple
This model is discontinued, Click here for the new SonicWALL SonicPoint-N Series!
SonicWALL makes distributed wireless networking secure, simple and cost-effective with the first total security solution that integrates universal 802.11a/b/g wireless with an enterprise-class firewall/VPN gateway. SonicWALL’s innovative Distributed Wireless Solution scales to virtually any network deployment, whether you’re adding wireless into an existing network infrastructure or creating a new wireless network from the ground up.
Larger companies can take advantage of SonicWALL's trusted wireless security functionality by deploying SonicPoints throughout any network. SonicPoints are IEEE 802.11a/b/g satellite access points that provide secure wireless LAN connectivity to users on the network. SonicPoints are automatically configured and centrally managed and updated by any SonicWALL TZ 170 or PRO series security appliance. As a complement to the core components of the Distributed Wireless Solution, SonicWALL also provides solution enablers that aid in the rapid deployment of a wireless network.
SonicWALL’s new wireless solution is built around our award-winning line of Internet security appliances. Within a large office building, network administrators can deploy the appropriate PRO series or TZ 170 appliance as the gateway device, then simply distribute SonicPoints at optimal locations throughout the building. This eliminates the need for a separate wireless switch appliance at the network perimeter, providing airtight wireless mobility for employees as well as secure Internet access for guests.
