The FortiAP U Series offers a wide range of access points. They can be managed by any of Fortinet’s controller and management options: Cloud, FortiOS, or WLAN Controller. There are models available right across the performance spectrum. The “U” in FortiAP U321EV stands for “Universal,” because they are universally manageable, as mentioned.
The FortiAP U321EV is a 3×3:3 MU-MIMO device, with 6 internal antennas. It also has 1 internal BLE antenna. The radios are 2.4 GHZ and 5 GHz, and peak out at 450 Mbps and 1.6 Gbps, respectively. The FortiAP U323EV (from $629) is the same, except that it has external antennas, rather than internal ones. Additionally, the FAP-U321EV includes 802.11ac explicit transmit beamforming (TxBF), and built in BLE radio for location services and more.
The FAP-U321EV is affordable
Due to the fact that the advent of Wi-Fi 6 has lowered the prices of good, new Wi-Fi 5 hardware, now is definitely a good time to at least think about upgrading to a newer Wi-Fi 5 AP. So, if you’re still using a cheap, low-end, or even a mid-tier Wi-Fi 5 device (or especially a Wi-Fi 4 router), it’s time to ditch it and get a top-tier Wi-Fi 5 one. Not necessarily because you have to, but rather because it’s now an excellent time for this kind of upgrade.
The FAP U321EV is flexible
The FAP-U321EV is great for everything from a large campus to hundreds of branch locations. It’s great for anything from from branches, to large offices, schools, universities, hospitals, hotels, and retail. The U-series can definitely serve a wide range of applications. That’s because they can be managed by any of Fortinet’s control and management offerings: FortiGate, FortiWLC, and FortiAP Cloud.
The FAP-U321EV is great for Education, since its’ integrated secure wireless controller (FortiGate) ensures secure student access to learning resources while FortiGuard services provides cybersecurity protection.
The FAP-U321EV has a superb price-to-performance ratio and ease of set-up. Recommending the FAP-U321EV is a no brainer. If you would like to know more about the FortiAP U321EV or any other Fortinet product, please email us or call Corporate Armor at 877-449-0458.
