XG Home Access Point

Hi All,

i am planning to put the XG home in my home network, with the announcements of the eol for the access points for end of March will this also apply to XG home?

is it possible to procure the apx access points for a home environment especially with the family using smart phones and tablets I can’t put the XG on at home till I can sort the wireless.

what have others done in the home environment?

  • XG is a fairly new product and is nowhere near EOL.  If anything, UTM would be EOL well before XG ever gets to that point and UTM has no EOL currently.

    Access point EOL has nothing to do with XG/UTM.  It has to do specifically with what product is listed as EOL.

    Yes, you can purchase APX access points, I've purchased two (one just two days ago) from a reseller for my home (using UTM).

  • Thank you for your response.  Sorry my question wasn’t articulated well.  My questions was not about the end of life for XG Home but the access points like AP15 or AP30, AP55 or AP100.  Would these access points still work on XG Home as they have been eol.  I didn’t know if that applied to just the commercial version of XG or for home as well.

    There are plenty of access points ap series on eBay which are probably more reasonable in cost than an apx access point.

    I was looking for the clarity around that and if anyone knows if the ap series access points will still work with XG home.

    If these won’t work than if somebody can recommend a Sophos re-seller who would sell apx for home users in the uk.

    thanks 

  • Yes they still work.  EoL is just really meaning there is no longer support for them, but that won't stop them from functioning.  I've used AP30s after EoL on XG and UTM.  They work fine until they die.
