  • Up to 450 Mbps + 2.34 Gbps

Universal Access Points

Enterprise WiFi has transformed from a transient network to a permanent fixture within all organizations. The data transported on our wireless networks span from classroom video conferencing to healthcare patient monitoring traffic to financial Point-of-Sale transactions. Expectations continue to rise for this always on, always everywhere network. Today, WiFi is no longer a convenience but a mission critical utility

Universal Access Management
Ability to intelligently support stand-alone controllers (FortiWLC), integrated security controllers (FortiGate) and cloud management (future) options, establish a new benchmark in flexibility, performance and security.

Latest WiFi technologies
802.11ac Wave 2 technology with data rates of up to 3.5 Gbps and multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) improves client throughput and range.

Unmatched Security Protection
Integrates with Fortinet’s Security Fabric providing unparalleled cybersecurity protection at the network edge.

Highlights

  • Supports Universal Access Management from on-premise to cloud management
  • 802.11ac Wave 2 technology with data rates of up to 3.5 Gbps
  • 4x4 MU-MIMO technology improves client throughput and range
  • 802.11ac transmit beamforming (TxBF)
  • Modulation up to 256 QAM
  • Integrated with Fortinet Security Fabric
  • Virtual Cell enabled deployments segment traffic at RF layer

Deployments:

Fortinet Universal access points are designed to support medium to large offices, schools, universities, hospitals, hotels, and large retail stores.

Universal Access Management

Education

Deployment of large scale WiFi requires site surveys, channel planning and worries over cell sizes and transmit power. Fortinet’s Universal access points ,when paired with our wireless controllers (FortiWLC and MC), eliminates this work. This enables school administrators to simplify initial deployment or the adding of APs to support more students throughout the campus or in classrooms without the headaches of more wireless network planning.

Healthcare

Patient safety is priority one. Fortinet Universal APs empower hospitals to improve patient safety by enabling life-critical applications such as telemetry requiring low bandwidth but exceptionally high reliability. Our Integrated secure wireless controllers (FortiGate) connected to our Universal access points ensures patient safety remains paramount.

Small/Medium Business

The retail sector continues to be a top target for cyber criminals. To protect themselves and their customers, while also providing robust wireless services to their customers and employees, retailers need a cost-effective wireless solution. Retailers can streamline WiFi store deployments through the combination of Universal APs and FortiGate. This, in combination with FortiGuard services, provides cybersecurity protection to mitigate risk to retailers from damage created by a data breach.
