FortiAP U422EV Outdoor Wireless Access Point

SKU: FAP-U422EV-A Categories: , Brand: Fortinet


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 U422EV (from $1474)stands for “Universal,” because they are universally manageable, as mentioned. The FortiAP U422EV is definitely an enterprise 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5) access point.

The FortiAP U422EV Wave 2 AP provides dual concurrent 4×4 radios in both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies. It also supports MU-MIMO, has two Gigabit Ethernet ports and supports 1xPD+1xPSE function. With its’ IP67 industrial rating, it easily withstands harsh outdoor environments. It has 8 external antennas. It also has an internal BLE radio to go with its’ 2 other radios. The radios are 2.4 GHZ and 5 GHz, and peak out at 600 Mbps and 3.46 Gbps, respectively.

The FortiAP U422EV is flexible

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 FortiAP U422EV is scalable

The FortiAP U422EV 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-U422EV 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-U422EV has a superb price-to-performance ratio and ease of set-up. Recommending the FAP-U422EV is a no brainer. If you would like to know more about the FortiAP U422EV or any other Fortinet product, please email us or call Corporate Armor at 877-449-0458. Thanks for reading!
