WatchGuard AP120 Overview:

WatchGuard’s AP120 delivers enterprise-grade functionality at a fraction of the cost for networks designed for heavy smartphone and table access such as guest or public Wi-Fi envoronments, or smaller-footprint locations that support a limited number of devices. The AP120 is ideal for branch offices, stores, and small classrooms.


Flexible Management Options
You can manage AP120 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 866 Mbps 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 unauthorised devices, manin-the-middle and denial-of-service attacks, rogue APs and more. As a dedicated WIPS sensor, the AP120 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 Managemnt
WatchGuard’s secure cloud-managed APs deliver the most comprehensive set of features for the price - including marketing tools for customizable user engagement and locationbased 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.

Feature and Benefits

  • Horizontal (ceiling) or vertical (wall) mounting support included at no additional cost.
  • Wi-Fi Cloud-enabled APs include integrated firewall, traffic shaping, QoS and BYOD controls per SSID
  • Support for up to 8 individual SSIDs per radio allows for maximum flexibility in network design.
  • AP120 devices can be converted to a dedicated security sensor with a single click for maximum wireless protection.
  • Patented Marker Packet technology is used to accurately detect authorised, 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.

*Requires Firebox with active support contract.
**20 access points recommended for each Firebox model. For the T-15 Firebox model 4 access points are recommended.

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.
