The demands on an organisations’ wireless network, more connections, increased bandwidth consumption, seamless roaming, extended perimeters, tax the performance and complicate the management of existing 802.11 wireless networks. The challenge faced by many businesses is to preserve compatibility with legacy 802.11 technologies, while still seeking to optimise their wireless network through centralised management and control across all nodes of the WLAN, and do all this while maintaining security.
The SonicWALL Clean Wireless solutions integrate 802.11n performance with enterpriseclass network security appliances to dramatically simplify wireless network set-up and management delivering unmatched wireless network security and enforcement for any 802.11-based wireless network.
The solution starts with SonicWALL SonicPoint-N Dual-Band access points, which support the IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n standards, to provide secure, faster access to data, voice and video over high-bandwidth wireless LANs. Scalable to networks of any size, SonicPoint-N Dual-Band access points require no pre-configuration, as they are centrally configured and managed by any SonicWALL Network Security Appliance – no additional wireless access controller is required.
The seamless integration of wireless access points with best-in-class Unified Threat Management (UTM) security and advanced Application Firewall 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.
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 physical data rates of up to 300 Mbp. Dual-Band supports either operation of 2.4 GHz or 5.0 GHz networks.
Central WLAN management can be administered using any SonicWALL TZ, NSA or E-Class NSA solution, and requires no pre-configuration of the SonicPoint devices.
Enhanced wireless reliability is delivered using Multiple-Input Multiple-Out (MIMO) technology that uses multiple antennas at both the transmitter and the receiver to enhance throughput and reliability.
Flexible wireless deployment options include three external antennas and TNC connectors for external next-generation antennas; wall or ceiling mounting; and 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) for easy deployment where electrical power is not readily accessible.
Virtual Access Point (VAP) segmentation enables up to 8 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, 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.
