Watchguard AP327X

02 January 2020

Just introduced, Watchguard’s AP327X outdoor access point is said to be ideal to deliver secure outdoor wi-fi for campuses, warehouses, manufacturing sites, shopping centres, public hotspots and municipal facilities. 

Rated IP67 for harsh conditions, it has four N-type connectors for flexible antenna coverage and two Gigabit Ethernet ports.

The AP327X is an 802.11ac 2x2 MU-MIMO model with dual concurrent 5GHz and 2.4GHz band radios and data rates up to 867 GHz and 400 Mbps respectively.

It can use existing wi-fi networks and APs, securing all from wireless threats by using dedicated Wireless Intrusion Prevention Systems (WIPS), along with real-time analytics.

Watchguard says it is the only company to offer what it calls a Trusted Wireless Environment to aid in setting up wi-fi networks which are fast, easy to manage and secure.
