IMPORTANT REGULATORY NOTICE

*APX 320X Regulatory Restrictions

Regulatory restrictions in some regions prevent the use of some (or all) 5 GHz channels in outdoor environments. Therefore, Radio-1 will not be available for configuration in some countries.

APX Series – Optional Accessories

PoE Injectors

All APX models are supplied without a PoE injector. Check the technical specifications to determine if you need 802.3af (PoE) or 802.3at (PoE+). PoE injectors are available for separate purchase.

PoE/PoE+ switches are also available from third-party suppliers.

Mounting Kits

Optional mounting kits are available for the indoor APX 320, APX 530, and APX 740 for flat-ceiling, plenum, or suspend mount.

Check with your local Sophos partner for further details and pricing.

Antenna Options for APX 320X

In addition to the omni-directional antennas supplied with the unit, we also offer external antenna options for the outdoor APX 320X to meet the requirements of some additional usage scenarios. These are available for separate purchase.

  • 120° sector antenna
  • 30° directional antenna

As the name suggests, the standard omni-directional antennas are designed to provide relatively even coverage around the unit in all directions. These are suitable for usage scenarios where the connecting clients will be distributed around the access point, but particularly in some outdoor areas, there may be obstructions which can interfere with the signal.

With directional/sector antennas you achieve targeted, better coverage at an extended range, and reduce signal wastage.

1 APX Series access points enable basic Synchronized Security functionality with Sophos Endpoint/Intercept X and Sophos Mobile when managed through Sophos Central. Sophos XG Firewall offers advanced Synchronized Security functionality with Sophos Endpoint/Intercept X and Sophos Server independent of the use of the Wireless Protection features.
