  1. Rename APs

    Please allow Access Points to be Renamed in Central - currently can't after registration. Useful if Name Scheme Changes, etc.

  2. Sophos Central - captive portal vouchers require a new login for every AP

    Hello Sophos,

    we use multiple access points with captive portal and voucher codes in the office.
    Moving in the Building could lead to a connection to a different AP and requires a new Voucher authentication. This happens every time the WIFI device changes the access point and is very annoying.
    Is there a way to make the voucher auth. accepted over all APs that have the Captive Portal enabled? (this concept worked with a on site UTM/SG before)
    Thanks.

  3. Wifi Heatmap Simulation with Dummy APs in Central

    The 'sites' is a good thing in Central Wireless to check your network heatmap by moving around AP devices. But these devices have to be physical devices.

    Wouldn't it be great if we could create wifi heatmaps and simulations using 'dummy' access points? Just select your model or models and move them around your uploaded map or maps.

    This gives our engineering team, as well as clients, a better picture of what to deploy instead of ofering APs and assuming they'll be a good fit.

  4. User portal on Wireless to generate access vouchers

    This is a Feature Request, maybe it will be interesting to have a user portal on Wireless environment to generate Wireless access vouchers directly from web by "reception/administration" people.

  5. Same SSID with different options

    Use the same SSID on different locations with different configurations (e.g. VLAN)
    On XG it is possible because the content of a ap group depends on a name of the SSID and not on the SSID itself.
    Map the SSID in the central configuration by an id and not by the SSID.
    This is a must in my opinion for costumers with many different locations

  6. Connection Speed

    Find a way to implement a local cap or restriction on bandwidth for an SSID instead of restricting the speed at the VLAN level.

  7. Wireless access points reporting

    Live and historical bandwidth usage (not connection speed) not just per AP but also narrowed down to the SSID and device connected on that channel.

  8. BLE

    When Will Central Wireless get BLE support for APX H/W it's on the access points, but we can't utilise it still?? Is this coming anytime soon as I'd really like to use it with my IOT?

  9. wireless

    on Sophos central we are able to control Bands over SSIDs not AP
    and this is a big limit when we have multiple APs installed and want to stop a band on one of them I know this is possible on XG but we need same ability on Sophos central

  10. Ability to allow MAC Address filtering on the captive portal in addition to the generated password

    With our Cisco implementation, we were able to setup a guest WiFi network that had password protection enabled. We also had a list of mac-address permitted devices that bypassed the login requirements of the guest network. This enabled us to setup legacy devices automatically so they didn't have to login. Many of these devices would not get to the captive portal page because they don't have browsers on them (older survey/gps devices).

    Right now, if you add in a MAC address into the allowed list, other devices are unable to connect. It would be nice to have the option so…

  11. Close ALL alerts with one-click

    Need to be able to clear "WiFi" gateway unreachable alerts in one-click, not each alert individually.

  12. API to Modify SSID

    It would be very helpful to have an API we could use to add MAC addresses to an SSID.

  13. Access Point Icon on Floorplans

    When placing APs on a Floorplan, can you please show an "Access Point" dot or icon so we know where it is and can differentiate position on the plans.

    Thanks.

  16. Disabling specific legacy bands for performance purposes

    Currently it is not possible to disable specific bands. We would like to disable the (legacy) 802.11b band for example, as it is limiting both performance and preventing clients to hop over to another accesspoint.

  20. The ability to set automatic reboots of AP's

    It would be good if we can set AP's to reboot out of hours without having to manually log on and reboot. This is possible with Watchguard AP's we currently use.
