Fortinet Universal access points are designed to support medium to large offices, schools, universities, hospitals, hotels, and large retail stores.
Deployment of large scale WiFi requires site surveys, channel planning and worries over cell sizes and transmit power. Fortinet’s Universal access points, when paired with our wireless controllers (FortiWLC and MC), eliminates this work. This enables school administrators to simplify initial deployment or the adding of APs to support more students throughout the campus or in classrooms without the headaches of more wireless network planning.
Patient safety is priority one. Fortinet Universal APs empower hospitals to improve patient safety by enabling life-critical applications such as telemetry requiring low bandwidth but exceptionally high reliability. Our Integrated secure wireless controllers (FortiGate) connected to our Universal access points ensures patient safety remains paramount.
The retail sector continues to be a top target for cyber criminals. To protect themselves and their customers, while also providing robust wireless services to their customers and employees, retailers need a cost-effective wireless solution. Retailers can streamline WiFi store deployments through the combination of Universal APs and FortiGate. This, in combination with FortiGuard services, provides cybersecurity protection to mitigate risk to retailers from damage created by a data breach.
