The FortiAP-222B rugged wireless thin access point offers you business-grade 802.11n connectivity of up to 600 Mbps total throughput in challenging outdoor environments. Two radios provide concurrent 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz connectivity with 2x2 MIMO technology.
The FortiAP-222B is an enterprise-grade outdoor wireless access point, suitable for challenging environmental conditions including extreme temperatures, contaminated zones and humid conditions. It is designed for all types of outdoor applications including golf courses, resorts, warehouses, stadiums, weather monitoring sites and refineries. Four (4) external antennas allow the FortiAP-222B to operate concurrently on 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies, providing support for IEEE 802.11a, b, g and n wireless standards. The access point provides continuous air monitoring for rogue AP detection, intelligent application detection and traffic shaping capabilities. Unlike traditional airtime fairness algorithms that are not Business application aware, the FortiOS engine can perform deep L7 packet inspection to accelerate business applications and slow down unwanted traffic and remove malware. When used as a dedicated AP with background scan or as a dedicated air monitor, the FortiAP-222B will help you meet PCI compliance requirements.

The Need for a Fortified Wireless LAN
Enterprises are looking to increase productivity through uninterrupted access to applications and resources, without compromising security and agility. You want to increase visibility and control of your wireless network traffic by enforcing the same policies as your wired network and eliminate potential blind spots. You also need a solution that helps you meet compliance by proactively blocking unauthorized access all while providing tools for business continuity by following industry best practices.
Integrated Wireless Security and Access Solution
Fortinet's FortiAP wireless thin access points deliver secure, identity-driven WiFi client access that creates a fortified WLAN network. Centrally managed by a FortiGate¨ or FortiWiFiª platform with its integrated Wireless Controller, FortiAPs allow you to deploy a comprehensive, integrated security solution for your wireless and wired networks. By acting as a Wireless Controller, FortiGate or FortiWiFi security platforms enable you to deploy the comprehensive protection of the industry leader in enterprise unified threat management (UTM) in overlay architecture, thus leveraging your current investment.
Industry-Leading Wireless Technology
FortiAP wireless access points are IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n standards-based, and operate on both 2.4 GHz b/g/n and 5 GHz a/n spectrums. They utilize industry leading wireless chip technology that takes advantage of 2x2 MIMO (multiple input multiple output) with dual transmit streams. This MIMO technology allows the FortiAP to reach wireless association rates as high as 300Mbps per radio and enables the coverage to extend twice as far as legacy 802.11a/b/g. Each FortiAP can support up to eight SSIDs per radio--seven for client access and one for scanning for rogue access points. They also use multiple discovery techniques to find available FortiGate controllers over L2 or L3 networks.
