Enterprises are looking to increase productivity through uninterrupted access to applications and resources, without compromising security and agility. You want to increase visibility and control of your wireless network traffic by enforcing the same policies as your wired network and eliminate potential blind spots. You also need a solution that meets compliance by proactively blocking unauthorized access, all while providing tools for business continuity by following industry best practices.
Integrated Wireless Security and Access Solution
Fortinet?s FortiAP wireless thin access points deliver secure, identity-driven WiFi client access that creates a fortified WLAN network. Centrally managed by a FortiGate? or FortiWiFi? platform with its integrated Wireless Controller, FortiAPs allow you to deploy a comprehensive, integrated security solution for your wireless and wired networks. By acting as a Wireless Controller, FortiGate or FortiWiFi security platforms enable you to deploy comprehensive Unified Threat Management (UTM) protection over your wireless network.
Highest Performance and Most Versatile Thin Access Point
The FortiAP-221 and FortiAP-320C are IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standards-based, and operate on both 2.4 GHz b/g/n and 5 GHz a/n spectrums. Supporting the latest 802.11ac technology, including 80 MHz channels width, both access points achieve a 280% throughput improvement over their 802.11n equivalents.
The FortiAP-221C is a next generation smoke detector form factor access point, perfect for discrete installations, such as hotel or school hallways. Supporting 2x2 MIMO technology with two spatial streams, this access point provides association rates of up to 867 Mbps.
The FortiAP-320C has been designed with dual redundant PoE Ethernet ports which provide maximum resiliency and wireless network uptime, making this AP ideal for mission critical environments such as hospitals and factories. This access point is sealed and can withstand an extended temperature range, making it suitable for non temperature controlled warehouse type environments. The plenum-rated enclosure also allows deployment above ceiling tiles in office environments. Leveraging powerful 3x3 MIMO technology and three spatial streams, this access point provides association rates of up to 1,300 Mbps.
