SonicWall Wi-Fi Cloud Manager (WCM) is a scalable, centralized Wi-Fi network management system, simplifying wireless access, control and troubleshooting capabilities across networks of any size or region. Accessible through SonicWall Capture Security Center (CSC), the WCM unifies multiple tenants, locations and zones while simultaneously supporting tens of thousands of SonicWave access points.

- Single-pane-of-glass management
Global networks can be managed easily from a single pane of glass with WCM, which is a part of the SonicWall Capture Security Center ecosystem. Being highly scalable, it is suitable for organization of any size. Everything from single-site wireless deployments to vast enterprise networks can be easily overseen with WCM.
- Reliable operation
WCM handles only the management plane functions of the SonicWave APs, ensuring that control and data plane functions are handled locally. Thus, in case of an Internet outage, although there is a temporary loss in management capability, the APs continue to work.
- Zero-Touch Deployment
Onboarding is automated and the network is up in minutes with Zero-Touch Deployment (ZTD) on SonicWave APs. ZTD simplifies the deployment process by eliminating complicated processes and configurations. With ZTD, simply connect the device to the Internet and power on. The SonicWave APs handle all aspects of authentication and association. The SonicWi-Fi app enables you to easily register and onboard the APs. Once the APs are registered and onboarded, it must be deployed.
- Advanced site survey tool
Prior to AP deployment, performing a wireless site survey ensures increased workforce productivity. Available within WCM is the SonicWall Wi-Fi Planner - an ideal enablement tool to plan smarter and eliminate costly installation mistakes. This tool enables you to optimally plan and deploy a wireless network for an enhanced Wi-Fi user experience. The cloud-based user interface provides the flexibility to collaborate with global teams.
- Lower TCO
Together, the cloud-based dashboard and tool drive down TCO by shifting costs from capex to opex. Cloud-based Wi-Fi management leverages the reliability and scalability of the cloud, while hardware-based controllers require redundant units to ensure network reliability.
