Overall Satisfaction with Fortinet Wireless LAN

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
  • 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.
