Overview:

WatchGuard’s AP322 brings secure, cloud-managed Wi-Fi to the outdoors. Its rugged, IP67-rated enclosure protects the wireless access point from the wind, rain, and cold weather, while six integrated omnidirectional antennas operate with three spatial streams per radio (3x3 MIMO) to deliver broad, fast, and reliable Wi-Fi coverage. The AP322 is ideal for stadiums and sports fields, schools/universities, malls, parks, hotel pool areas and open air cafes, shipping docks, warehouses, and other harsh environments or outdoor locations.

“We’ve found that the dashboard within the WatchGuard Wi-Fi Cloud product has made it much easier for our limited IT staff to deploy new access points, to understand the functionality of the existing access points, and to understand the true needs of our guests.”

~ Hunter Hughes, Director of IT, Museum of Flight

Flexible Management Options

You can manage AP322 access points with either a Firebox®, via the Gateway Wireless Controller with lightweight feature set, or with WatchGuard’s Wi-Fi Cloud. And with the Wi-Fi Cloud you get an expanded set of features including strong WIPS security, marketing tools, and location-based analytics for optimal business insights.

Performance Without Compromise

Incorporating the latest 802.11ac standards, you’ll have speeds of up to 1.3 Gbps over the air, without sacrificing security. When managed by the Wi-Fi Cloud, WatchGuard APs come standard with RF optimization, spectrum monitoring, and trouble-shooting built in.

Uniquely Effective Approach To Security

Using patented Marker Packet technology, WatchGuard’s cloud-managed WIPS (Wireless Intrusion Prevention System) defends your airspace from unauthorized devices, man- in-the-middle and denial-of-service attacks, rogue APs and more. As a dedicated WIPS sensor, the AP322 can be added to any existing Wi-Fi network for a powerful layer of patented security features simply unavailable in most AP devices.

Advantages Of Cloud-based Management

WatchGuard’s secure cloud-managed APs deliver the most comprehensive set of features for the price – including marketing tools for customizable user engagement and location- based analytics for enhanced business insights. With the WatchGuard Wi-Fi Cloud, IT pros can enjoy an entirely controller-less Wi-Fi management experience including setup, configuration, monitoring, troubleshooting, and improving corporate and guest Wi-Fi access, without worrying about the limitations of legacy controller infrastructure. Wi-Fi Cloud environments easily scale from one to an unlimited number of APs across multiple locations. APs can be grouped in many ways including location, building, floor, and customer to maintain consistent policies.

Features & Benefits

  • Support for up to 8 individual SSIDs per radio allows for maximum flexibility in network design.
  • The IP67 sealed enclosure protects APs in harsh, wet outdoor environments so they can be mounted with direct exposure to the elements – no overhang or shelter required.
  • AP322 devices can be converted to a ded- icated security sensor with a single click for maximum wireless protection.
  • Manage with Wi-Fi Cloud for expanded features including strong WIPS security, marketing tools and location-based ana- lytics for enhanced business insights.
  • Patented Marker Packet technology is used to accurately detect authorized, unauthorized, and external access points on any network with the fewest false positives in the industry.
  • Supports self-healing and bridge-mode wireless meshing for optimal installation scenarios.
