End-of-Life AP Series Indoor Access Points

I have received a notification of End-of-Life Support. I'm worried about this paragraph. 



The affected AP models will no longer work in Sophos Central, XG Firewall (SFOS) or in SG UTM


So that means the hardware will be un-usable? 


Best regards.

  • Hi  

    Yes, those listed AP hardwares will not work with Sophos Central, XG Firewall and Sophos UTM. It will in-short, become unusable.



  • Hi Jaydeep,

    oomph that is rigorous.

    Because they are based on OpenWrt (OpenSource), do Sophos offer the source-code of the AP-system anywhere?

  • Hi  

    If you know your way around playing with the firmware of an AP, you can still use it. But Sophos does not provide the source-code of the AP firmware.



  • I don't like that either. Why? The AP's are / were expensive and are well embedded in UTM 9.7. Now I'm private and I still have some Bintec Statefull Inspection ROuters with built-in WLAN antenna. I just tested it. You simply integrate the Bintec router (e.g. Bintec / Funkwerk R232bw or R232aw) into the internal LAN of the UTM (EThernetport's) and use the WLAN antenna to bridge the Bintec. Bintec passes this on to UTM. Finished! Greetings from Germany, Rainer

    with friendly regards

  • For any questions regarding the AP Series End-of-Sale announcement, please refer to this communication 

    Alternatively, please reach out to your local Sophos contact or partner.

  • Release the firmware for the AP-series as OpenSource!
