Features

The SonicWall SonicPoint ACi offers secure, high-performance 802.11ac wireless LAN (WLAN) connectivity across the 5 GHz band with enhanced signal quality and range, simplified deployment, and ease of management.

The latest in high-performance wireless.
Get enterprise-speed access to data and use bandwidth-intensive mobile apps such as HD video and voice over high-bandwidth wireless LANs with the SonicPoint ACi. Gain the enhanced wireless signal speed and quality available through the 802.11ac wireless standard.
Secure extension of your network.
The SonicPoint ACi integrates tightly with SonicWall SuperMassive, E-Class NSA, NSA and TZ Series firewalls to provide uniquely robust and comprehensive wireless network security. These firewalls use Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection technology to scan all inbound and outbound wireless traffic for malware, intrusions and other threats and then eliminate them before they can enter your network.
Web access policy control.
Provide visitors or customers with a guest password for secure wireless Internet access using wireless guest services (WGS). Let employees securely access network resources from within your wireless network by separating trusted wireless users from unknown users using virtual access points (VAPs). Extend your model of differentiated wireless access by customizing the authentication interface with lightweight hotspot messaging.
Easy deployment and management.
Streamline deployment and management of your secure wireless network. SonicPoints are automatically detected, provisioned and updated by the managing firewall. Wireless LAN administration is also handled directly from the firewall GUI, simplifying setup and centralizing ongoing management.
Lower costs.
Add secure wireless networking without over-spending. By simplifying deployment, delivering single-pane-of-glass management for both wireless and security, and eliminating the need to purchase a separate wireless controller, the SonicPoint ACi drastically reduces the cost to add wireless into a network infrastructure.
