WatchGuard AP327X Overview:

Today more than ever, people expect Wi-Fi access no matter where they are – outside, camping, even in walk-in freezers. This IP67-rated access point (AP) comes equipped with four N-Type connectors to support a variety of external antennas. Whether your project requires 360-degree coverage, narrow-beam directional, or longer distance point-to-point, the AP327X protects your Wi-Fi network in the harshest environments.

The AP327X extends your Trusted Wireless Environment to ideal locations such as school campuses, warehouses, manufacturing facilities, shopping malls, public hotspots, municipal Wi-Fi, and other outdoor or harsh weather deployments. Unlock the full potential of the AP327X when managed by the Wi-Fi Cloud for Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS) security, intelligent network visibility and troubleshooting of wired and wireless issues, location-based analytics, guest engagement and marketing tools.

The AP327X offers four N-Type connectors for flexible antenna pattern coverage capabilities to secure Cloud-managed outdoor Wi-Fi! Its IP67-rated enclosure is made for the harshest environments and extends your Trusted Wireless Environment to the outdoors. This access point with dual concurrent 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz band radios and data rates up to 867 GHz and 400 Mbps respectively delivers broad, fast, and reliable Wi-Fi coverage – making the AP327X ideal for school campuses, warehouses, manufacturing yards, malls, public hotspots, and other municipal Wi-Fi deployments.


Ruggedized Enclosure


Ruggedized Enclosure

The AP327X is IP67-compliant and tested to withstand the harshest weather conditions, so it can be mounted with direct exposure to the elements – no overhang or shelter required. This AP is capable of operating in temperatures -40°C to 65°C (-40°F to 149°F).


Dual-Band Omni Antennas

Omni-directional (360 degree) coverage is ideal for installations where the AP327X is centrally located and client devices require connectivity in all directions such as school recreation areas, outdoor pools, manufacturing buildings, and public hotspots. Designed to be used with the AP327X outdoor access point and suitable for any access point that supports N-Type connectors. Sold separately in sets of 2.

Cloud-Based Network

Cloud-Based Network Baselining and Troubleshooting

"Why is the Wi-Fi not working?" If this comment sounds all too familiar, you’re not alone. Whenever a user experiences a problem, they will often blame Wi-Fi. IT admins need access to better answers. The Wi-Fi Cloud provides real-time insight into the users’ experience and tracks why clients may fail to connect to the network. Wi-Fi Cloud baselines network traffic and automatically highlights anomalies by triggering alerts to network admins for resolving issues before users report them.


Join the Trusted Wireless Environment Movement

With the importance of Wi-Fi to all of our lives, every person in this world deserves to connect to a Wi-Fi they can trust. The only way to accomplish this is to establish a security standard for Wi-Fi.

Trusted Wireless

No need to rip and replace, just add WIPS

Each WatchGuard access point has the flexibility to operate as both an access point and a dedicated WIPS security sensor. This means that when deployed as dedicated WIPS sensors, the devices work with your existing access points (Cisco, Aruba, Ruckus, Ubiquiti, etc) and add enterprise-grade wireless security protection to your network. In this case, instead of delivering secure Wi-Fi traffic to users, we deliver unprecedented WIPS security protection that is 100% dedicated to scanning the air and protecting your business from wireless threats.

Comparision Guide:

Designed from the ground up for businesses of all types and sizes, access points from WatchGuard deliver the best combination of security, performance, and manageability on the market. When managed by the WatchGuard Wi-Fi Cloud, these access points deliver fast, reliable wireless access while providing our customers with industry-leading wireless security, powerful guest engagement, and business-driven analytic tools.

Choose a cloud-ready access point that meets your business needs – whether indoors or outdoors – without sacrificing security.
