Operating Instructions

Foreword

We are pleased to welcome you as a new Sophos APX Series customer.

Sophos APX Series access points are high performance wireless products using the latest 802.11ac Wave 2 technology for a best-in-class user experience. The

APX Series models can be easily managed in Sophos Central, our cloud-based security management platform. All you need to do is set up a Sophos Central account and plug in the device anywhere in your network. The access point will find the cloud-based controller automatically and become operable within seconds.

These operating instructions will help you setup your Sophos Central account, install and configure your Sophos APX Series access point and also provide detailed technical specifications. In addition, please also see the following documents that contain useful information on safety, regulatory compliance, and configuration options:

Ì Sophos APX Series Safety Instructions and Regulatory Information

Ì Sophos APX Series Quick Start Guide

The instructions must be read carefully prior to using the device and should be kept in a safe place. You can download all user manuals and additional documentation from the Sophos Knowledgebase under www.sophos.com/en-us/support/knowledgebase.aspx

or from www.sophos.com/get-started-ap .
