The biggest, most expensive, fastest wireless access point isn’t always necessary. Sometimes, a small, reliable, reasonably priced access point is all you need. That’s the great thing about Fortinet’s FortiAP 221E. It’s priced right, it’s easy to install, and easy to manage.
Great For Small Businesses
The FortiAP 221E is designed to be installed indoors, in a medium density environment. It’s great for an office environment, smaller retail store, or in a classroom. You can manage the FAP 221E centrally by the WLAN controller of your FortiGate. This makes it ideal if you are already using Fortinet security devices. And, you can manage the FortiAP 221E in the same dashboard as the rest of your Fortinet devices. Even if you aren’t using Fortinet security appliances, it can still set up quickly and easily through the FortiAP cloud provisioning and management portal.
What’s in the Box?
The FortiAP 221E comes with the access point, quick start guides, and mounting hardware. Fortinet supplies the hardware for you to mount the AP to a wall, ceiling, or t-mount rail. It’s important to note that the FortiAP 221E does not come with a power supply. So, you will have to hook this up to a switch with PoE, a PoE injector, or a separate power supply. Corporate Armor sells all these options separately.
