Firebox-Managed (GWC)
Ease into Wi-Fi with a lightweight Wi-Fi access feature set and when ready, the AP322 can be upgraded with a Wi-Fi Cloud subscription to enable all these cool features:

Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS)
Where other Wi-Fi platforms have tried and failed, use Wi-Fi Cloud’s patented WIPS to defend your airspace from Wi-Fi hacking without the risk of accidentally shutting down your neighbor’s Wi-Fi and running into legal trouble.

Location Analytics
Bridge the gap between online businesses and the physical, brick-and-mortar.  Empower business owners and sales and marketing teams with location-based data on metrics such as dwell times, new vs. repeat visitors, and demographics on gender and age.

Captive Portals
Provide unique experiences for guests and customers and turn Wi-Fi into a key marketing tool that transforms visits into customer touchpoints, increases fans on social networks, and allows for continued engagement after people leave.

Cloud Scalability
Easily scale from one to an unlimited number of APs across multiple locations without worrying about the hardware limitations of legacy controller infrastructure. APs can be grouped in many ways including location, buildings and floors, for easy management and policy configuration.
