Hello WatchGuard Wi-Fi Cloud Users,
We are planning a brief maintenance on Sunday, July 30, 2017 between 1:00AM and 6:00AM Pacific Time to deploy improvements to the Wi-Fi Cloud.
During the maintenance window, the Wi-Fi Cloud services will be down for maintenance (approximately 2 hours) including Manage, Go, Engage, and Analyze modules. Your access points will continue to pass client traffic and will not be interrupted.
- Role-Based Control
Use role profiles to enforce restrictions (VLAN assignments, Bandwidth controls, Firewall rules, redirection URLs) on users/clients.
- Google Integration and Device Authentication
Integrate with Google for user authentication, device authorization, and role profile assignment.
- RADIUS MAC Authentication
Use RADIUS for client authorization and role profile assignment.
- Unified Client Steering
Enhancements to band steering, roaming support, and load balancing to optimize client load and band utilization across APs.
- Application Firewall
Create rules to allow or block specific applications on an SSID.
- MAC Address Blacklist / Whitelist
Create a list of whitelist/blacklist MAC addresses for an SSID.
- Enhanced Auto Channel Selection
Minimize interference from other APs and from non-Wi-Fi sources to optimize your wireless radio environment.
- Improved Smart Device detection
Improved detection of smart devices and operating systems of clients.
- Automatic VLAN Monitoring
Automatically monitor VLANs added by an SSID or your own user-configured VLANs.
- Broadcast / Multicast Control
Block broadcast/multicast packets on your wireless network and create exemptions for specific applications (Video, Bonjour, etc.)
- IGMP Snooping
Optimize multicast video streaming traffic.
- Engage / Analyze Enhancements
