Overview:

The FortiAP-U family offers a wide range of models with the additional power of FortiGuard services and the flexibility of dual 5 GHz support for Wi-Fi 6 APs. Perfect for everything from a large campus to hundreds of branch locations, the FortiAP-U family has a variety of form factors and performance levels. FortiAP-U access points are managed centrally by the integrated WLAN controller of any FortiGate® security appliance, through the FortiLAN Cloud provisioning and management portal, or through standalone controllers (FortiWLC). Protect your LAN Edge from the campus to the branch with these high capacity capable APs.

  • 802.11ax | Tri-Radio 5 GHz + 5 GHz + 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz + 2.4 GHz + scanning | 5 Antennas
  • 2x2 MIMO | Up to 1,201 Mbps + 1,201 Mbps + 574 Mbps

Unified Management

Ability to intelligently support integrated security controllers (FortiGate), and cloud management options with FortiGuard services at the edge; and establish a new benchmark in flexibility, performance, and security.

Wi-Fi 6 technology with data rates of up to 4.8 Gbps and OFDMA improves client throughput and overall network efficiency.

Advanced Security Protection

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


Deployments:

Fortinet UTP access points are designed to support a variety of deployments from branches, to medium to large offices, schools, universities, hospitals, hotels, and large retail stores. These access points can serve such a wide range of applications because they can be managed by any of Fortinet’s control and management. By supporting UTP services at the edge, deployments have the flexibility to enable security services wherever they need them in their network.

FortiGuard Services

Education

The Education sector is at rising risk from cyber attacks. This in conjunction with requirements to protect minors from inappropriate materials can make deploying wireless a challenge. Our integrated secure wireless controller (FortiGate) ensures secure student access to learning resources while FortiGuard services provides cybersecurity protection.
