End-of-Sale AP 100X Outdoor Access Point

Products

Important lifecycle update for the legacy outdoor AP model

Global supply chains have been under a great deal of pressure since the start of the pandemic. Whilst freight capacities have now improved, component shortages, due to a lack of raw materials, continue to challenge technology manufacturers and the situation is still volatile.

 

End-of-Sale AP 100X Outdoor Access Point

Our AP 100X Outdoor Access Point has been available for a number of years. This legacy model is now impacted, and the future component supply cannot be maintained to address our business requirements. We are compelled to announce the end-of-sale for the AP 100X and will sell this model for as long as stocks last only.

Whilst we are going to great efforts to source some additional units, in some regions, the remaining stock may be depleted as early as August.

The following lifecycle milestones are now applicable:

APX 320X

Customers who require an outdoor access point should be encouraged to take a look at the APX 320X, which is a much newer model available for Sophos Central management only.

Customers will benefit from:

  • a 40% lower hardware price than the legacy model for much newer technology
  • additional security, troubleshooting, and management features only available in Sophos Central
  • external antenna options to address new deployment scenarios
  • greater scalability to extend the network whenever required

All plans to add support for the APX 320X to either Sophos Firewall or Sophos UTM (SG) are currently on hold.

Speak to your local Sophos sales team or distributor for help in comparing our wireless products, or if you require any additional information.
