SonicWALL ACe overview

  • 1Description

With the SonicPoint ACe Wireless Access Point from Dell you can greatly expand the reach of your wireless network while keeping the number of access points needed to a minimum. Dual band connectivity allows you to connect to either the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz frequencies while operating using the 802.11ac networking standard. This SonicPoint Access Point also supports FairNet Wireless Bandwidth Allocation effectively guaranteeing a minimum amount of bandwidth to each user to ensure that all users have access to crucial Internet based applications, email, and more.

You can rest assured your network will remain secure after installing the SonicPoint Access point as it comes equipped with a variety of security features. Deep packet inspection technology scans all inbound and outbound traffic to help eliminate threats, intrusions, and other attacks that may harm your network. You can also take complete control of all aspects of your network, both wired and wireless, using Granular Security Policy Enforcement which gives you complete control over firewall rules. If you would like to restrict access to specific areas of your network to certain users you can implement wireless guest services protocols to ensure those users have internet-only access.

This SonicPoint Access point from Dell provides the complete solution to your wireless networking needs. You can easily install this device within a drop ceiling or on the wall while the included PoE injector makes it is easy to bring power to the unit eliminating the need to run addition power sources.

SonicPoint Wireless Features

Enhanced Wireless Performance and Range
With support for the 802.11ac standard, the SonicPoint can achieve a data rate of up to 1.3 Gbps while maintaining a higher performance level at greater ranges.
Improved Signal Quality and Reliability
The 802.11ac wireless standard operates in the 5 GHz frequency band, which is less prone to signal interference, thus enhancing signal quality. Dual radios, six external antennas and 3x3 MIMO result in more reliable wireless coverage.
Flexible Deployment
This SonicPoint access point can receive power from Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) cabling through an 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE) injector. As a plenum rated access point, the SonicPoint ACe can be safely installed in air-handling spaces, such as in or above suspended ceilings.
Discreet Deployment Options
With dimmable LEDs (excluding power), the SonicPoint fits seamlessly into environments that need discreet wireless coverage.

Platform Features

Wireless Security
SonicPoint Series access points integrate tightly with Dell SonicWALL next-generation firewalls. Using Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection (RFDPI) technology, these firewalls scan all inbound and outbound traffic on wired and wireless networks and eliminate malware and intrusions. This integration creates a secure wireless solution that delivers comprehensive protection.
Virtual Access Point (VAP) Segmentation
The SonicPoint Series supports dedicated authentication and privacy settings by enabling the creation of up to eight service set identifiers (SSIDs), all sharing the same physical infrastructure. This provides logical segmentation of secure wireless network traffic from guest access.
Wireless Intrusion Detection and Prevention
Wireless intrusion detection and prevention scans the wireless network for unauthorized (rogue) access points and then the managing firewall automatically takes countermeasures to prevent connections to the device.
Lightweight Hotspot Messaging
Extending the Dell SonicWALL wireless guest services model of differentiated internet access for guest users, lightweight hotspot messaging enables extensive customization of the authentication interface and the use of any kind of authentication scheme.
Centralized Management
SonicPoints are automatically detected, provisioned and updated by the managing Dell SonicWALL SuperMassive, NSA or TZ Series firewall, and central WLAN administration is also handled directly from the firewall GUI.
Broad Standards and Protocols Support
With support for a wide range of wireless standards and security protocols (including 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, WPA2 and WPA), the SonicPoint Series enables organizations to leverage prior investments in devices that are incapable of supporting higher encryption standards while easing migration to 802.11ac.
Wireless Guest Services
The wireless guest services feature enables administrators to provide internet-only wireless access for guest users. This access is separate from internal access and requires guest users to securely authenticate before access is granted.
Granular Security Policy Enforcement
Administrators can implement firewall rules for all wireless traffic and control all wireless client communications to any device on the network. For an added layer of security, they can block communications between wireless devices on the same virtual access point.

    SonicWALL ACe reviews

    SonicPoint ACe Wireless Access Point with 1-Year of SonicPoint Support is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Misunderstood Product This product can not be ran in a standalone mode. It requires that you have an existing sonicwall. I had not known that when I ordered. Hopefully this helps someone else looking.
