USE CASES

Campus

A single building with multiple floors, or a corporate or education campus with a group of large buildings.

  • High-capacity designs including Dual 5GHz and tri-band with Wi-Fi 6E allow a maximal number of client devices to attach to the network at the same time without over-air congestion
  • Complete NOC functionality with network visibility and AIOps simplify a complex network deployment into a solution manageable by IT teams of any size
Branch Office / SD-Branch

A highly distributed number of small sites, often with no on-site IT.

  • Built in NAC functions* allow secure onboarding of devices at remote locations where IT doesn’t have reliable visibility
  • Management orchestration with zero-touch deployment allows for quick and easy rollouts without the need for skilled installers at each site
Micro Branch

Ultra small sites that still fall under IT’s responsibility.

  • Can act as a SASE endpoint as a foundation for zero-trust network access (ZTNA)
  • Simple management and provisioning through FortiSASE interface
Remote Workers

A remote AP installed at a worker’s home or at micro-branch office space.

  • Split tunneling allows local traffic to remain local while sending other traffic to the data center for inspection when needed
  • Desktop mounting options for wall-plate models allow the use of Ethernet as well as Wi-Fi connectivity while leveraging the same secure tunnel
SMB

Single site or small collection of sites with limited IT resources.

  • Built-in NAC functions* bring security to the wireless network with no need to install and manage additional products
  • Network and security convergence decreases management overhead while keeping the network secure

FortiAP 831F

This high throughput enterprise class 802.11ax indoor AP provides three radios and 8 spatial streams. This top-of-the line access point supports OFDMA, a 5.0 Gigabit Ethernet port, plus an additional 1 Gbps Ethernet port for PoE diversity. The AP can provide 24/7 scanning across both bands while still providing access on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. The integrated BLE radio can be used for beacons and locationing applications.


    802.11ax | Tri-Radio 2.4 GHz + 5 GHz + scanning | 13 Internal Antennas

    8x8 MU-MIMO | Up to 1,147 Mbps + 4,804 Mbps
