Fortinet

Any rollout is well suited for a FortiAP - from small office networks, to large warehouse deployments. Adding additional APs to your network is simple and easy. Monitoring is simple with Forticloud monitoring. Configuring the devices can be as complex or as simple as you need. Adding additional Fortinet devices (I have switches and firewalls) makes the network even more secure and easy to manage - all devices working in tandem make monitoring much easier

Ubiquiti Networks

I love the equipment for small-scale commercial solutions and quality without the price tag. I might not recommend their products for a large organization with multiple locations and servers. However, the GUI interface will allow remote access and setup across the network. I think this is a great solution for small businesses and families or home office solutions, provided there is some IT knowledge for setup and maintenance.

Cons

Fortinet

  • Deploying your first AP is a little confusing - you need to register it with Fortinet, and then deploy it. I am a master now, but this took me call to support to understand how to roll these out.
  • Adding them in to the correct folders on Forticloud took a little bit of figuring out, but again, once I had it it was simple.

  • Supply can be a problem, especially for new products. We have had to sometimes wait for months for supply to come in.
  • No phone support. Only email/chat. can be frustrating sometimes just texting someone, but have not had to contact them very often.

      This is an excellent product for an SMB - cost isn't outrageous and deploy is simple. I can monitor my network without breaking the bank.

      The combination of performance, range, low-power use, and manageability made it ideal for us.

      Fortinet support is outstanding! They are second to none. They pay attention to details and the needs of the customer.

      We have not needed to contact support, except to replace one device that was damaged in shipping. The company immediately issued an RMA without delay, and we had our replacement product within a week

      Alternatives Considered

      Fortinet

      FortiAP does not fall short compared to other vendors. They have all the features other vendors offer at a much more competitive price-point, which makes purchasing FortiAP a lot more attractive.

      Prior to this, we used Cisco Meraki wireless access points, which did not allow for centralized control, therefore several access points shared the same SSID. Because the client's movement from one device to another was not as seamless and reliable as it is with the current Ubiquiti solution, this shift cost both time and stability during configuration.

      Return on Investment

      Fortinet

      • Increased overall coverage of wireless for my users - no more calls about dropped wireless (our cell service is very spotty).
      • Easy to roll out - no issues here.
      • Expensive - you are paying for a business, not a home use devices - sticker shock might happen initially.

      Ubiquiti Networks

      • The cost of the equipment vs. my uptime is streets ahead of typical consumer equipment.
      • Adding additional AP's is extremely easy and little to no downtime for setup.
      • Transition between Unifi and Edge equipment can be a little clunky but it works.
