Sophos AP 5 Released

We have just launched our new wireless access point, the Sophos AP 5. This addition to our wireless access point family is an accessory to Sophos Remote Ethernet Device (RED) 10, adding WLAN functionality to it.

The AP 5 supports the 2.4-GHz frequency band and is compliant to the IEEE 802.11 b/g/n WLAN standards. It transmits a single SSID and supports up to 5 users, delivering wireless data rates up to 150 Mbit/s under the best conditions. Deployment is quite easy. The Sophos AP 5 simply connects to the USB port of the RED interface. It then automatically appears in the Sophos UTM user interface and becomes operational within minutes.

Keep in mind that to operate the AP 5, the following requirements must be met:

  • Sophos RED 10 rev.2 or rev.3
  • Sophos UTM 9
  • Sophos Wireless Protection subscription
