Showing XGS 116w Model

Product Highlights

  • Dual processor architecture for an excellent price to performance ratio

  • Every model is available with optional integrated Wi-Fi for all-in-one connectivity

  • An expansion bay on all XGS 116/126/136 models improves compatibility for 3G/4G when used with our optional module

  • An optional second Wi-Fi radio module can be added to w-models with an expansion bay

  • A second power supply option for all XGS 1xx models offers a redundancy option not always seen in this form factor

  • Power-over-Ethernet ports are built-in on 116, 126 (1 GE) and 136 (2.5 GE) models to power your external devices

  • The SFP port on all models can be used for FTTH/FTTP or with the optional VDSL modem

  • Note: All protection features are supported on every XGS 1xx model and most on XGS 87 and 87w

Accessories

3G/4G Connectivity

For XGS 116, 126, and 136 models only

Our desktop appliances are often deployed in remote locations where flexible connectivity is essential. The expansion bay on the XGS 116, 126, and 136 models provides the option to add a 3G/4G module to your appliance. The module can be securely mounted and is then managed from your Sophos Firewall console. 

  • Better performance with the latest standards supported (LTE cat-6, up to 300 Mbps download/50Mbps upload)

  • Full protection from theft or damage

Two different versions – Europe/Americas and Asia-Pacific

SFP VDSL Modem

For use with all XG and XGS Series models

Use the SFP port to add VDSL connectivity to your appliance. Get rid of your router and connect your appliance directly to the DSL socket on your wall. This means one less piece of equipment to manage and a fully integrated solution. Our optional DSL modem supports most VDSL2 standards with download/upload speeds up to 100 Mbps.

2nd Wi-Fi Radio Module

For XGS 116w, 126w, and 136w only

Improve the Wi-Fi coverage and performance in your office by adding a second Wi-Fi radio to selected XGS models. Adding a second radio to a model which already has built-in Wi-Fi, allows you to broadcast the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands simultaneously and adds two additional antennas for an overall better Wi-Fi experience.

  • Rackmount kit included

Accessories

Flexi Port Modules

For all XGS 1U models

Our 1U models come with one or more expansion bays to flexibly add to the diverse range of built-in interfaces on every box. Changes in your environment, your workforce, or your edge infrastructure may require additional fiber ports or a change in your connectivity. With Flexi Port modules, you have a cost-effective way to adapt your appliance, rather than having to purchase new hardware mid-term.

Transceivers

Sophos offers a range of transceivers to use in the SFP and SFP+ interfaces on your appliance or Flexi port module.

A list of compatible third-party transceivers can be found in our knowledge base article.

External Redundant Power Supply

For XGS 2xxx, 3xxx, 4300

All of our 1U models offer an optional second power supply for redundancy. The external power supply can be connected to the rear of the appliance.

When using this power supply with either the XGS 2100 or 2300, we suggest that you purchase rackmount rails (rather than using the rackmount ears supplied) for a more stable deployment in your data center.

Internal Redundant Power Supply

For XGS 4500 only

The second power supply for the XGS 4500 provides a simple way to add redundancy to our most powerful 1U unit.

For added reliability, the XGS 4500 also offers a second integrated SSD (RAID).

Performance Test Methodology
General Maximum throughput measured under ideal test conditions using industry standard Keysight-Ixia BreakingPoint test tools. Actual performance may vary depending on network conditions and activated services.
Firewall Measured using HTTP traffic and 512 KB response size
Firewall IMIX UDP throughput based on a combination of 66 byte, 570 byte and 1518 byte packet sizes
IPS Measured with IPS with HTTP traffic using default IPS ruleset and 512 KB object size.      
IPsec VPN HTTP throughput using multiple tunnels and 512 KB HTTP response size
TLS inspection Performance measured with IPS with HTTPS sessions and different cipher suites.
Threat Protection Measured with Firewall, IPS, Application Control, and malware prevention enabled using HTTP 200 KB response size

Flexi Port Modules

For all XGS 2U models

Our 2U models come with two standard Flexi Port expansion bays plus one or two bays for high-density modules to flexibly add to the diverse range of built-in interfaces on every box. Changes in your environment, your workforce, or your edge infrastructure may require additional fiber ports or a change in your connectivity. With Flexi Port modules, you have a cost-effective way to adapt your appliance, rather than having to purchase new hardware mid-term.

Transceivers

A list of compatible third-party transceivers can be found in our knowledge base article.

Redundancy

All of our 2U appliances come equipped with hot-swappable components to ensure maximum uptime:

  • Dual SSDs

  • Dual Power supplies

Rackmount Kits

All 2U rackmount appliances are supplied with rackmount sliding rails.
