Wireless Access Point FortiAP-320B is dual-band dual-radio IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n standards-based, and operates on both 2.4 GHz b/g/n and 5 GHz a/n spectrums. The FAP-320B delivers the new 3x3 MIMO technology with three spatial streams, which allows connection rates of up to 450Mbps. This results in more than 50% throughput than 2x2 MIMO access points and higher performance over longer connection ranges.
This Fortinet wireless access point is purpose-built for customers demanding the highest performance, availability and versatility. Its dual redundant POE Ethernet ports provide maximum uptime, making this wireless AP ideal for mission-critical environments such as hospitals and factories. You can also conceal this access point above drop-ceiling tiles as the enclosure uses plenum-rated plastics and cast aluminum in its construction.
Just like all FortiAP products, you can configure this versatile AP in AP mode, Mesh mode, Bridge Mode, dedicated air monitor or as a remote AP with encrypted data channel and local traffic breakout. It supports up to eight SSIDs per radioÑseven for client access and one for scanning for rogue access points. It uses multiple discovery techniques including DNS discovery to find available FortiGate controllers over L2 or L3 networks.
The FAP-320B includes the latest generation 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-320B 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-320B 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. The FortiAP-320B sports the new 3x3 MIMO technology with three spatial streams which allows connection rates of up to 450Mbps. This results in more than 50% throughput over 2x2 access points and a longer connection range. Its dual redundant PoE Ethernet ports provide maximum uptime and longer connection range, making this access point ideal for mission critical environments such as hospitals and factories. This access point can also be deployed above ceiling tiles as the enclosure is plenum rated.
The FortiAP-320B is a versatile access point and in addition to providing client access it can be configured to operate in mesh node, as a dedicated air monitor, or as a remote access point with an encrypted data channel. It support up to eight SSIDs per radioÑseven for client access and one for scanning for rogue access points- and uses multiple discovery techniques to find available FortiGate controllers over L2 or L3 networks. This access point can also deployed above ceiling tiles as the enclosure the plenum rated allowing access points to remain hidden throughout the enterprise.
