FortiAP™ Universal Access Point Series

The FortiAP-U family offers a wide range of models with the additional flexibility of dual 5 GHz support for WiFi 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 FortiAP 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.

These enterprise class Wi-Fi6 (802.11ax) indoor APs provide three radios. These topof-the-line access points provide OFDMA, a 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port plus an additional 1 Gbps Ethernet port for PoE diversity. The APs can be configured for dual 5  GHz band access while still providing coverage for devices on the 2.4 GHz band, or can be configured to offer dedicated scanning. The integrated BLE radio can be used for beacons and locationing applications.

Universal Access Management

Ability to intelligently support standalone controllers (FortiWLC), integrated security controllers (FortiGate), and cloud management options; and establish a new benchmark in flexibility, performance, and security.

Latest Wi-Fi technologies

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

Unmatched Security Protection

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

Highlights

Fortinet Universal 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. The Universal access points can serve such a wide range of applications because they can be managed by any of Fortinet's control and management offerings: FortiGate, FortiWLC, and FortiAP Cloud.

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.

Healthcare

Patient safety is priority one. Fortinet Universal APs empower hospitals to improve patient safety by enabling life-critical applications such as telemetry requiring low bandwidth but exceptionally high reliability. Our dedicated wireless controllers (integrated WLAN controller of any FortiGate security appliance) connected to our Universal access points ensures patient safety remains paramount, while providing improved performance for wireless enabled medical devices.
