FortiAPs are available in a variety of models, from 2x2 to 4x4, internal or external antenna, to address specific use cases and price points. Configuration and control of your wireless can be done with Fortinets FortiGate Network Security Platform or FortiAP Cloud. (Note: If you are looking for our Dedicated Controller based solution, it can be found here.

Wireless technology is nothing new. Its been around for a few years now, and it looks like its here to stay. Hooking up your computer to via physical cable to the internet is a thing of the past. Everyone walks around with a wireless device in their pocket now. Because of this, more and more consumers and employees expect to have WiFi readily available whenever they enter your building. So, businesses now have to provide a wireless connection throughout their building. However, it can be confusing to figure out what hardware you need for a reliable wireless connection. The thing is, the biggest, most expensive, fastest wireless access point isnt always necessary. Sometimes, a small, reliable, reasonably priced access point is all you need. Thats why I really like FortiGates FortiAP 221E. Its priced right, its easy to install, and easy to manage.

Great For Small Businesses

The FortiAP 221E is designed to be installed indoors, in a medium density environment. Its great for an office environment, smaller retail store, or in a classroom. You can manage the FortiAP 221E centrally by the WLAN controller of your FortiGate. This makes it ideal if you are already using Fortinet security devices. And, you can manage the FortiAP 221E in the same dashboard as the rest of your Fortinet devices. Even if you arent using Fortinet security appliances, it can still set up quickly and easily through the FortiAP cloud provisioning and management portal.

Whats in the Box?

The FortiAP221E comes with the access point, quick start guides, and mounting hardware. Fortinet supplies the hardware for you to mount the AP to a wall, ceiling, or t-mount rail. Its important to note that the FortiAP 221E does not come with a power supply. So, you will have to hook this up to a switch with PoE, a PoE injector, or a separate power supply.

The FortiAP221E has 2 radios (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz). 4 internal antennas. 22 multi-user MiMo. It has a throughput of 867 Mbps. And uses 802.11 ac Wave 2. The FortiAP 221E allows you to set up a separate guest network. You can also customize the security of both the guest and private network.


In conclusion, if you need a new wireless access point for your office, school, or small retail shop, take a look at the FortiAP 221E. Of course
