End-to-end control over the wireless LAN for your organization The FortiWLC controller series optimizes traffic across our infrastructure wireless access points and client devices to support high density, high performance and predictability while addressing mission-critical enterprise demands for wireless connectivity. Each FortiWLC controller supports the performance requirements of the latest 802.11ac Wave II standard by providing double the performance of our existing Infrastructure wireless controllers. These high performance controllers also include support for Virtual Cell/Single Channel technology. It works with relevant Fortinet’s infrastructure access points to deliver data, voice, and video applications for small to large enterprises.
Powered by Fortinet’s System Director operating system, the FortiWLC creates a unified wireless LAN environment designed to deliver seamless mobility and superior reliability. System Director optimizes client distribution and channel utilization in both single- and multichannel deployments, maximizing efficiency to make the most of available wireless spectrum. Radio frequency virtualization simplifies deployment and allows easy capacity expansion as your needs evolve.
The controller manages authentication and encryption of our enterprise class infrastructure access points. You can easily extend the FortiWLC capabilities with optional software for policy enforcement and wireless intrusion prevention. As a Fortinet wireless controller, it integrates with the network management suite, which combines with System Director to bring application visibility, intelligent management and resilient wireless services to your network. It also integrates with Fortinet Connect as part of a complete BYOD and guest access solution.
