WGA12443 - Competitive Trade In to WatchGuard AP120 and 3-yr Basic Wi-Fi

MFG Part








Standard Warranty

Manufacturers Standard Warranty

The WatchGuard AP120 is a cloud-ready enterprise grade MIMO 802.11ac access point with dual concurrent 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz band radios supporting 802.11a/n/ac, 802.11b/g/n, two spatial streams, and data rates of up to 866 Mbps and 300 Mbps, respectively.
Flexible management options enable users to manage AP120 units via a WatchGuard Wi-Fi Cloud subscription, or via a Firebox or XTM appliance. A Firebox or XTM appliance is not required for AP120 units managed by the Wi-Fi Cloud. The AP120 offers the flexibility of being purchased with a Wi-Fi Cloud subscription which includes wireless intrusion prevention system (WIPS), engagement and analytics features or to be purchased alone and managed by the Gateway Wireless Controller (GWC) included in all Firebox NGFW/UTM appliances and receive a lightweight feature set. If purchased alone and managed by the GWC, the AP120 may be upgraded to the WIPS, engagement, and analytics features of the Wi-Fi Cloud at any time by purchasing a separate Wi-Fi Cloud subscription.
When managed by the WatchGuard Wi-Fi Cloud, the AP120 delivers:
Wireless Security: Leverage the industry's only reliable WIPS technology to block the most advanced malicious threats ranging from man-in-the-middle attacks, wireless denial of service, to rogue devices without the high rate of false positives other WIPS solutions encounter. With the industry's most accurate WIPS, these threats will be automatically prevented in seconds without disabling innocuous neighboring Wi-Fi networks.
Guest Engagement & Analytics: Leverage custom branding and engagement tools to customize the Wi-Fi experience for guests to improve their browsing experience and brand perception. Once guests are connected, access valuable demographic, location, and browsing data that can be used to drive a variety of future marketing and sales activities.

Key Selling Points

  • 802.11ac compatibility provides the latest gigabit speed that customers demand and modern devices require
  • Fast Roaming enables organizations to adopt mobile VoIP clients to enhance staff mobility and communication
  • Band Steering enhances overall Wi-Fi experience by moving groups of connected devices away from 2.4Ghz band to the more open 5GHz band
  • Fast Handover forces sticky clients with low signal strength off an Access Point to avoid slowing down others users on the same AP
  • Configurable Client Limits enable WLAN admins to limit the number of clients on an Access Point to guarantee high throughput for each client
