AP420 Indoor Access Point
AP420, a new 802.11ac Wave 2 AP which provides lightning-fast speeds capable of supporting throughput-intensive and latency-sensitive applications like VoIP, video, music, and large data file transfers over Wi-Fi. It also includes a 4x4 Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) dual radio that offers high client-density support to help eliminate Wi-Fi connection delays, and a 3rd radio for dedicated WIPS (Wireless Intrusion Prevention System) and RF optimization scanning. Best for tradeshow floors, auditoriums, meeting rooms, and shopping malls.
When managed with the Wi-Fi Cloud, you can unlock the full potential of your WatchGuard access points with powerful WIPS security, real-time business-driven analytics, and powerful engagement and marketing tools.

Your Wi-Fi will show no signs of slowing down with a 4x4 MU-MIMO - allowing many devices to access the Wi-Fi simultaneously. This significantly decreases the time each device must wait for a signal and dramatically 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 connect multiple devices to Wi-Fi at the same time (smartphones, laptops, tablets), plus to be able to download and stream music, videos, and VoIP.
Dedicated 3rd 2x2 MIMO Dual Band Radio
The AP420 access point comes equiped with a dedicated 3rd 2x2 MIMO dual band radio for dedicated RF optimization scanning and Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS) when Wi-Fi Cloud is enabled, so you don’t have to sacrifice performance for security.
Integration with Google for Education
Bringing secure Wi-Fi authentication to K-12 classrooms, Google for Education is a collection of applications and services allowing students and teachers to engage anytime, anywhere, on any device - securely, ensuring that only devices registered in the school’s Google domain can connect to the school Wi-Fi network and network access policies are enforced. This unique integration brings even more control, usability and ease-of-use to school districts. The access point must be Wi-Fi Cloud-enabled.
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, marketing tools, 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.
