Our Price: $1,323.09
Fortinet AP series Access Points (APs) provide a high-performance, premise-managed WiFi network with a broad range of 802.11ac Wave 1 and Wave 2 APs that ease deployment and scaling and offer a number of compelling quality-of-experience advantages. They also provide a complete portfolio of security services that offer additional means of protection to combat the ever-evolving threat landscape. Fortinet also offers an RF technology that uniquely manages the spectrum utilization, allowing it to dramatically simplify deployment vs competing solutions.
Provides administrators with Application Visibility to prioritize applications to improve the user experience by guaranteeing more capacity to select groups, such as mission-critical applications or mobile point-of-sale (mPoS) devices.
Air Traffic Control
Provides sophisticated air traffic control mechanisms to govern station airtime so every client gets a fair turn on-air, which prevents the slowest, or the fastest, devices from hogging resources.
Single Channel Technology
Unique technology that manages spectrum utilization to overcome the interference-related deployment barriers commonly encountered in high density environments.
The OAP832e is an 802.11ac outdoor access point (AP) capable of supporting a variety of external antennas. Designed for high-density deployments such as stadiums, arenas, university campuses, hospitals, convention centers, and warehouses. The OAP832e supports an aggregate 1.75 Gbps data rate for demanding business applications like video and voice.
The OAP832e access point allows administrators to prioritize applications with Fortinet’s unique channel-layering technology to improve the user experience. For schools, this means Learning Management System applications can be assigned to a dedicated channel layer, while online classroom video feeds can be carried on another channel layer. For healthcare, life-critical applications such as patient monitoring can be dynamically assigned to one channel layer, doctor and nursing applications to a second layer, and patient applications to a third.
The OAP832e also provides unique roaming support because Fortinet enables the network (not the client) to control AP client hand-off via our Air Traffic Control® technology, resulting in the industry’s lowest roaming latency figures — a true zero-handoff.
Additionally, Fortinet’s single-channel technology allows the OAP832e to leverage the 802.11ac design for pervasive, real-world deployments of 80 MHz channels, effectively doubling the available data rate and dramatically increasing throughput. It should be noted that all the Fortinet APs in this document can operate in multi channel mode as well as virtual cell mode.
As with other Fortinet APs, the OAP832e integrates seamlessly with FortiConnect and other applications to bring intelligent management and resilient wireless services to your network.
