Overall Satisfaction with Fortinet Wireless LAN

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 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.
