Great Wi-Fi Security Comes in Affordable, Small Packages

The AP125 from WatchGuard is the smallest access point in our portfolio. This 802.11ac Wave 2 access point comes equipped with Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) connecting multiple devices at the same time – enhancing your secure Wi-Fi experience. Best for lower-density environments such as small restaurants, distributed remote office spaces, small meeting rooms, and small-footprint retail.

When managed with the Wi-Fi Cloud, you can unlock the full potential of your WatchGuard access points with powerful WIPS security, location-based analytics, and powerful guest engagement with social-enabled captive portals.

We Protect Your Access Points from Wi-Fi Hacks

Each WatchGuard access point has the flexibility to operate as both an access point and a dedicated Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS) security sensor protecting 3rd party brand access points. Now you can create a Trusted Wireless Environment without having to replace your existing infrastructure.

Multi-User MIMO

Your Wi-Fi will show no signs of slowing down with MU-MIMO allowing the AP to serve multiple client devices downstream simultaneously. This decreases the time each device must wait for a transmission from the AP and speeds up your network. Considering a typical small to midsize business (SMB) has at least 50+ devices including smartphones, tablets, and laptops, it’s vital to be able to utilize as much of the Wi-Fi frequency spectrum as efficiently as possible.

Flexible Management Options

WatchGuard offers two management scenarios to meet the needs of SMBs and distributed enterprises. You can manage any of our 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, social-enabled captive portals, and location-based analytics for optimal business insights. For ultimate peace of mind, rely on a Firebox UTM-protected network with WatchGuard Wi-Fi Cloud-managed APs to realize the full marketing and security potential of a Cloud-managed access point solution.
