Dell has launched SonicPoint AC series of wireless access points supporting IEEE 802.11ac wireless standard.
SonicPoints combine with deep packet inspection security from Dell SonicWALL next-generation firewalls to form a comprehensive wireless network security solution.
SMBs can leverage enterprise-class wireless performance and security, while simplifying wireless network setup and management for a low total cost of ownership.
New SonicPoint AC Series enables small- and mid-sized organizations to provide optimal wireless performance with the same level of security as a wired network, said Dell.
Patrick Sweeney, executive director, Dell Security, said: “With the new SonicPoint AC Series, these SMBs can take advantage of the improved wireless performance offered by the new 802.11ac standard.”
SonicPoint AC Series includes SonicPoint ACe, which features dual radio functionality, six removable external antennas, dimmable LEDs and the flexibility to receive power over an AC adapter or 802.3 at Power over Ethernet (PoE) Injector, and SonicPoint ACi, which has dual radios, internally housed antennas, dimmable LEDs and receives power through an 802.3at PoE Injector.
SMBs will benefit as the WiFi-ready devices can connect from distances, and use bandwidth-intensive mobile apps, such as video and voice without no signal degradation.
Gery Pollet, founder and CEO, Zapfi, said: “Dell SonicPoints enable us to provide the wireless access we need quickly and easily, and without having to constantly worry about whether or not this access is secure. In addition, we don’t need to buy a separate wireless access controller to manage the SonicPoints, as this is built into the Dell SonicWALL firewall, which saves us both time and money.”
