SonicPoint-Ni Dual-Band wireless LAN controller features.
The Dell SonicWALL SonicPoint-Ni Dual-Band wireless LAN controller offers seamless, secure wireless LAN (WLAN) connectivity across either 5 GHz or 2.4 GHz bands, with advanced scalability, performance and management.
Reliable optimized wireless.
Providing enhanced throughput, convenience and reliability, SonicPoint-Ni Dual-Band uses internal antennas with Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) technology.
Flexible ways to deploy.
Where electrical outlets are not readily accessible, Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) cabling can provide power to the SonicPoint-Ni Dual-Band over an 802.3af Power Ethernet (PoE) Injector. You can optionally mount the wireless LAN controller on either a wall or ceiling.
With internal antennas, dimmable LEDs (excluding power) and plastic covers that can obscure both the logo and LEDs, SonicPoint-Ni Dual-Band wireless access points are ideal for environments that require discreet wireless coverage.
Packet aggregation and 40 MHz channels enable data rates of up to 600 Mbps on 2.4 GHz or 5.0 GHz networks.
Secure and centralized platform.
Securely grow your wireless network while still maintaining overall control. SonicPoint-Ni Dual-Band combines centralized wireless LAN controller functionality with high-speed threat protection.
Comprehensive security for your wireless network.
SonicPoint-Ni Series wireless access points feature wireless firewalling, secure Layer 3 wireless roaming, IEE 802.11d multi-country roaming, Wireless Intrusion Detection Services and integrated Wireless Guest Services (WGS) to enforce password access for customers and guests.
Centralized wireless LAN controller.
You can centrally control your WLAN management from a Dell SonicWALL SuperMassive E10000, E-Class NSA, NSA or TZ Series firewall appliance, with no pre-configuration of the SonicPoint-Ni wireless access point.
Virtual Access Point (VAP) segmentation.
You can provide logical segmentation of both secure wireless network traffic and guest access by enabling up to eight SSIDs for dedicated authentication and privacy settings, all sharing the same physical infrastructure.
Broad support for protocols and standards.
By including 802.11a/b/g/n, WPA2, and WPA, SonicPoint-Ni Dual-Band allows your business to continue utilizing older 802.11a/b/g devices, while smoothing the transition to 802.11n capability.
Robust secular policy enforcement.
IT administrators can control all wireless client communications to any host on the network—wired or wireless, and implement firewall rules to all wireless traffic.
