Overview:

The Need for a Fortified Wireless LAN

Enterprises are looking to increase productivity through uninterrupted access to applications and resources, without compromising security and agility. You want to increase visibility and control of your wireless network traffic by enforcing the same policies as your wired network and eliminate potential blind spots. You also need a solution that meets compliance by proactively blocking unauthorized access, all while providing tools for business continuity by following industry best practices.

Integrated Wirespeciless Security and Access Solution

Fortinet’s FortiAP wireless thin access points deliver secure, identity-driven WiFi client access that creates a fortified WLAN network. Centrally managed by a FortiGate® or FortiWiFi™ platform with its integrated Wireless Controller, FortiAPs allow you to deploy a comprehensive, integrated security solution for your wireless and wired networks. By acting as a Wireless Controller, FortiGate or FortiWiFi security platforms enable you to deploy comprehensive Unified Threat Management (UTM) protection over your wireless network.

Highest Performance and Most Versatile Thin Access Point

The FortiAP-221 and FortiAP-320C are IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standards-based, and operate on both 2.4 GHz b/g/n and 5 GHz a/n spectrums. Supporting the latest 802.11ac technology, including 80 MHz channels width, both access points achieve a 280% throughput improvement over their 802.11n equivalents.

The FortiAP-221C is a next generation smoke detector form factor access point, perfect for discrete installations, such as hotel or school hallways. Supporting 2x2 MIMO technology with two spatial streams, this access point provides association rates of up to 867 Mbps.

The FortiAP-320C has been designed with dual redundant PoE Ethernet ports which provide maximum resiliency and wireless network uptime, making this AP ideal for mission critical environments such as hospitals and factories. This access point is sealed and can withstand an extended temperature range, making it suitable for non temperature controlled warehouse type environments. The plenum-rated enclosure also allows deployment above ceiling tiles in office environments. Leveraging powerful 3x3 MIMO technology and three spatial streams, this access point provides association rates of up to 1,300 Mbps.

The FortiAP-224E is a new member of our 802.11ac Wave 2 family with MU-MIMO capability and transmit beam forming capable of handling an astounding 512 clients per radio. This high-performance dual-band AP is ruggedized with an Ingress Protection IP67-rated enclosure capable of withstanding extended temperature ranges. The FortiAP-224E is suitable for deployment in the harsh conditions. It has 4 internal antennas for WiFi and one Bluetooth and also provides SFP cage to allow for long-distance fiber connectivity and is suitable for mission-critical bridging or mesh deployments.

High Performance Secure Thin Access Points

  • Supports latest 802.11ac technology with association rate of up to 1.3 Gbps
  • Leverage existing FortiGate or FortiWiFi platforms as controllers for low TCO
  • Full range of authentications and access options for all use cases
  • Integration with FortiManager and FortiAnalyzer for centralized management and reporting
  • Fast roaming for uninterrupted data access
  • Automatic Radio Resource Provisioning (ARRP) for optimized throughput
  • Flexible deployment options with simple per device pricing
  • Layer 7 application QoS for maximum business productivity
  • Rogue AP detection and mitigation to satisfy PCI DSS compliance
