Sporting a ruggedized IP67 enclosure with 3×3 MIMO and 802.11ac support, it extends the benefits of WatchGuard’s Wi-Fi Cloud to the raw outdoors and is perfect for stadiums, schools, open-air cafes and malls, hotel pool areas and more. In any environment, organizations can now leverage the simplicity and scalability of WatchGuard APs combined with a powerful cloud-based security solution.
The WatchGuard AP322 delivers dual concurrent 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz band radios, with data rates up to 1.3 Gbps and 450 Mbps, respectively. This high-speed connection delivers faster downloads and more responsive Internet performance.
