We have implemented Fortinet WLAN at some of our Branch offices to ensure proper connectivity for our teams. Security was core, and with hybrid workforce realities, especially with multiple offices, we needed to have a solution in place that offered easy connectivity to all of our users. Setup was easy for our IT team, which is always a plus!
  • Provide secure wifi
  • deploys easily
  • facilitates users connectivity when moving between offices
  • requires manual updates
  • Access points cost vs performance
  • support isnt always efficient
Fortinet offers great Security features and is one of the leaders on that, and integrating Wireless LAN infrastructure with Access points proved to work rather seamlessly. Ease of management, single platform and ability to customize licensing as per needs were elements in favor of adding the Wireless LAN solution from Fortinet to our security portfolio.
  • Easy of deployment
  • Powerful integration to other Fortinet products
  • industry leading Security features
  • single vendor management for better cost control
  • ability to scale
  • quick and easy setup
as a stand-alone product, the Fortinet wireless LAN solution isn't the most powerful, nor compelling out there. Others, like Cisco Meraki, offer great products, with added wifi features at a similar price point, but where Forti shines, is when integrated into a network with firewall enablement such as FortiGate. Overall, it stacks up well with others and is a solution that needs to be evaluated in a purchasing project.

As a Fortinet solution reseller, we obviously deploy a lot of their solutions in-house, either in our production environment or lab environment to showcase to customers. We use FortiGate as routeurs, FortiSwitch and FortiAP for our LAN and Wireless needs prod environment. So all our security/infrastructure is manage with Fortinet products. Obviously, our wifi is provided by FortiAPs.
  • Really easy to configure
  • Really easy to manage
  • Great value for price
  • Better to work with a Fortinet partner, their support is inadequate.
  • Maybe a lack of security features when using it without Fortigate
Fortinet has a great portfolio of access points for indoor and outdoor needs, low and high density and even access points for ruggedized needs. So you can find the appropriate access point for pretty much all scenarios, from office to storage or outdoor environments. We can find all you need to roll out small to large deployments.
  • Ease of deployment
  • Stability
  • Great range
  • Less management cost
  • Less expensive to buy
Cisco Meraki also have a great Wifi solution and easily managed as well (even more user friendly). But, at the end, FortiAP just offer quite the same experience for less bucks. In greater deals, Meraki can sometimes be more agressive and compete on pricing structure, in this case, I would probably prefer Meraki MR solution.

We have built a WiFi, all-in-one solution, and created a product for existing and future customers. The all-in-one includes all Fortinet products: Firewall, Switch, and Access Points. This solution, compared to Meraki's all in one solution, is at a price-point to which customer like, without having to give up features.
  • Ease of configuration.
  • Ease of management.
  • In the web portal, it would be nice if you could create a customer, assign that customer all the devices in the solution, and have a single pane glass to manage them all. Right now you need to access different web links to manage the devices.
  • The security feature set could be a bit more sophistication, like an Arista AP which polices the air.
The Fortinet solution works in all scenarios due to the choice of access points. It is able to suit any environment. The access points will perform in any indoor or outdoor environment, and Fortinet support is second to none. They will assist you from beginning to end; ensuring your solution is working as it should.
  • The cost of management decreased,
  • End-users connect flawlessly to the solution and are able to be productive when they are mobile.
As far as features, Fortinet has them all. When compared to Meraki and WatchGuard, it comes out miles ahead. The biggest difference is price. You pay less for the Fortinet, but you do not lose the features you need to have a great solution.
Fortinet offers excellent support. They will work with you until the solution is doing what it is designed to do, within its capabilities. They also do an excellent to follow-up with the end-user prior to closing the ticket.
