Remote AP Deployment
FortiAP Remote WLAN access points have been purpose-built for installation in remote locations, with coverage areas of up to 300m2 . Preprovisioned APs can be shipped to a remote user and connect back to the FortiGate wireless controller via a secure tunnel over any Internet connection. The AP can broadcast the same SSID at the remote location as it does at headquarters, providing a seamless roaming experience for users. The wired ports can also be bridged to an SSID, enabling devices such as VoIP phones to seamlessly connect back to the corporate network. The remote series of FortiAPs are designed to increase the security remote wireless LANs, while simplifying management and reducing helpdesk calls.
