The Wireless Access Point FortiAP-223B is an indoor dual-band dual-radio 802.11a/b/g/n wireless access point hardware with external antennas. It can deliver up to 600 Mbps of secure business-grade wireless throughput. The FAP-223B is specially designed with RP-SMA antenna connectors for use with directional panel antennas for optimal signal coverage in shopping centers, factories and corridors.
Just like all wireless access point FortiAP products, you can configure this versatile AP in AP mode, Mesh mode, Bridge Mode, dedicated air-monitor or as a remote AP with secure encrypted data channels.
The FAP-223B access point includes the latest generation of wireless access point hardware, enabling advanced 802.11n technologies and features. These features include Low-Density Parity Check (LDPC) encoding, Maximum Likelihood Demodulation/Maximum Ratio Combining (MLD/MRC), and Transmit Beam Forming (TxBF). The end result is an impressive increase in performance and coverage.

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
FortinetÕs FortiAP-221B and FortiAP-223B wireless thin access point delivers 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 comprehensive unified threat management (UTM) protection over your wireless network.
Economical and versatile thin Access Point
The FortiAP-221B and FortiAP-223B boasts the latest generation of wireless hardware with encompasses a set of advanced technologies and features enabled by 802.11n. This includes Low-density parity check (LDPC) encoding, Maximum likelihood demodulation/ Maximum Ratio Combining (MRC)/(MLD), and Transmit Beamforming (TxBF). The end result is an impressive increase performance and coverage of ~+100% at short range, ~+50% at mid range and ~+25% at long range.
FortiAP is IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n standards-based, and operates on both 2.4 GHz b/g/n and 5 GHz a/n spectrums. It utilizes 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-221B to reach wireless association rates as high as 300Mbps per radio and enables the coverage to extend more than twice as far as legacy 802.11a/b/g. FortiAP can support up to eight SSIDs per radioÑseven for client access and one for scanning for rogue access points-- and uses multiple techniques to find available FortiGate controllers over L2 or L3 networks.
