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 await a transmission from the AP and accelerates your network. Considering a typical small to midsize business (SMB) has a minimum of 50+ devices including smartphones, tablets, and laptops, it’s vital to be ready to utilize the maximum amount of the Wi-Fi frequency spectrum as efficiently as possible.

Flexible Management Options

WatchGuard offers two management scenarios to satisfy the requirements of SMBs and distributed enterprises. you'll 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, believe a Firebox UTM-protected network with WatchGuard Wi-Fi Cloud-managed APs to understand the complete marketing and security potential of a Cloud-managed access point solution.
