More about managing the FortiSwitch 124E

The FortiSwitch 124E integrates tightly into the Fortinet Security Fabric via FortiLink, a unique, cutting-edge managing tool. This allows any FortiGate firewall to manage any FortiSwitch. Thereby, the FortiSwitch becomes a logical extension of the FortiGate. As a result, the 124E blends directly into the Fortinet Security Fabric. At that point you manage your FortiSwitch right from the familiar FortiGate interface. The nice thing is, it’s a “single pane of glass” interface. This provides complete visibility and control of users and devices on the network no matter how they connect.

The integration between the FortiGate and FortiSwitch is superb. One of the most useful features is that you can completely isolate devices that compromise the network.

Under the hood

The FortiSwitch 124E has 24 GE RJ45, and 4 GE SFP ports. It delivers 56 Gbps of Switch Capacity, and 83 Mpps Packets per Second. Additionally, it has 4 ms latency. Lastly, it supports 4000 VLANS. A FortiGate firewall will be able to manage anywhere from 8 to 300 FortiSwitches, depending on the model.
