Overview:

Extend Connectivity and Improve Network Availability

FortiExtender offers scalable, cost-effective, and resilient 5G, LTE, and Ethernet solutions. Driven by Fortinet’s unique approach of Security-driven networking FortiExtender allows organizations business continuity, improved network availability while securing connectivity with wired broadband and cellular networks. From secure point of sale (POS) systems to vehicle fleet communication, FortiExtender provides reliable broadband access to the internet and extends the value of the Fortinet Security Fabric to support fluid business operations dependent on remote device connectivity.

Security Fabric Integration

Security Fabric Integration
Integration with FortiGate appliances provides a single pane of glass management of the wired and wireless WAN connections and security which reduces Total Cost of Ownership for your WAN and improves manageability of remote connections in your network.

Signal Strength

Designed for Optimal Signal Strength
Can be located indoors or outdoors to maximize 3G/4G LTE signal strength (up to 100m from the FortiGate appliance or network switch) without using lossy antenna cables or limited strength USB modems.

Management Options

Simplified Management Options
Manage your FortiExtender from the FortiGate or from the cloud. FortiExtender Cloud offers hosted management of an unlimited number of FortiExtenders anywhere in the world.

Highlights

  • Improves use experience though optimal 5G and LTE wireless signal
  • Provides secure network failover with out of band management (OBM), dual SIM, and dual Modem capabilities
  • Integrates with Fortinet Secure SD-WAN for ease of deployment, management, and security
  • Offers dynamic, flexible edge connectivity—switch links among ISPs based on data consumption, schedules, or ad hoc
  • Enables network access for remote sites and branches located beyond fixed broadband
  • Accelerates cloud connectivity with on-ramp to SaaS/IaaS
  • Reduces WAN TCO through a single pane of glass management integration with the FortiGate Network Security Platform
  • Cloud-based management available and ideal for large-scale, geographically dispersed locations
  • Four LAN ports and basic routing enable remote connectivity and networking for remote locations and PoE powered

Features:

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.

Flexible LTE Connectivity

The FortiExtender family of LTE appliances all support dual SIM cards per radio enabling the option of using two different ISPs for LTE connectivity. While only one SIM card can be active on any radio, the dual SIM option enables you to switch between ISP providers to optimize your connectivity and minimize your costs. For example, you can configure the FortiExtender to utilize the link from ISP A until a certain data usage threshold is reached. At that point, FortiExtender can automatically shift over to ISP B and use that LTE connection. Additional conditions can be set to shift the connection between the two SIM cards, all to enable the optimal balance of connectivity and cost.

Flexible LTE Connectivity
Switch between ISPs based on cost or data usage


Flexible WAN Connectivity
Mix LTE and Cable/DSL connections for load-balancing and/or failover

Flexible WAN Connectivity

The 200 series of 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. Load-balancing 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.

Flexible LAN Connectivity
Easily supports two FortiGates in HA mode without additional hardware

Certification notes:
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).
