Security Fabric Integration
Integration with Fortinet SD-WAN and FortiGate appliances secures internet edge breakouts with a complete set of Web, Content, and Device security controls far beyond other industry solutions
Optimal Signal Strength
A single PoE cable provides optimal 5G/LTE signal vs complex, lossy antenna cables or limited strength USB modems. Dual SIM and Dual Modem options offer up to 5X network reliability.
Manage your FortiExtender from the FortiManager, FortiGate, or FortiExtender Cloud dashboard, making network changes, security controls, and policy automation simple.

Superior Management, Security and Control
FortiExtenders are a true plug-and-play device. Once connected to the FortiGate, they appear as a regular network interface in FortiOS management. IT administrators can manage the connection as well as implement complete UTM security and control, just like any other FortiGate interface. In addition, FortiOS will display data quota usage on the wireless WAN interface, providing complete visibility of the connection to ensure costly carrier data limits are not exceeded. The superior management, security, and control of the FortiExtender ultimately reduces IT costs while extending, ensuring, and securing the network.
Flexible Deployment for Optimal Signal Strength
FortiExtender devices have been engineered to be installed in the best possible location to achieve maximum 3G/4G LTE wireless signal strength. The unit is powered using Power over Ethernet with both indoor and outdoor models available, enabling the device to be located for optimal signal strength, even up to 100m away from the FortiGate or Network Switch.
FortiOS Web-based GUI — complete FortiExtender visibility and control.
FortiExtender can be placed near a window or outdoors for optimal signal strength.
Flexible 5G/LTE Connectivity
The FortiExtender family of 5G/LTE appliances support dual SIM and dual modem options, enabling up to four different ISPs for 5G/LTE connectivity. Our dual SIM models allow for one active and one passive cellular link, providing fast failover. Dual Modem options provide two active and two passive links, for the fastest failover and disaster recovery. You can also configure the FortiExtender to utilize an ISP link until a certain data usage threshold is reached. At that point, FortiExtender can automatically shift over to another ISP and use that 5G/ LTE connection. Additional conditions can be set to shift the connection between SIM cards, allowing you to balance connectivity and cost.
Switch between ISPs based on cost or data usage
Mix LTE and Cable/DSL connections for load-balancing and/or failover
Flexible WAN Connectivity
FortiExtender offers new WAN connectivity options with an Ethernet WAN port, in addition to the LTE WAN links. With this WAN port, you can connect to a DSL, cable, or another modem for additional WAN connectivity options. Loadbalancing and failover options enable your FortiExtender to manage your WAN connections across several options to ensure connectivity at the best cost point.
Hybrid WAN-LAN Connectivity
FortiExtender offers four LAN Ethernet ports to enable multiple connections to the LTE connection. Ideal for High Availability (HA) pairs of FortiGates, each FortiGate can be directly connected to the FortiExtender. Either FortiGate can run in load-balancing or failover modes and receive WAN connectivity from the FortiExtender.
Easily supports two FortiGates in HA mode without additional hardware

The built-in modem offers quad-band connectivity to HSPA+ networks worldwide and expected to work in 3G mode worldwide, subject to carrier support. There are exceptions however, as some carriers control the access to their network to specific carrier certified devices. These carriers allow only certified modem IMEI numbers on their network and have the ability to disable the LTE connection after a period of time.
The following carriers are known to require additional testing to obtain certification. Please reach out to the Fortinet sales team and to evaluate your specific regional requirements: Brazil (VIVO), USA (Sprint), New Zealand, Arabian Peninsula (all carriers), UK (All carriers).
