Dual-radio, Two-stream 802.11ac Wireless Access Point
The AP832 is the industry’s first 802.11ac access point capable of supporting two concurrent5 GHz 3×3:3ss radios. It is designed for high-density deployments in large offices, schools, universities, hospitals, hotels, and large retail stores. The AP832 supports an aggregate 2.6 Gbps data rate for the most demanding business applications like video and voice.
The AP832 access point allows administrators to prioritize applications to improve the user experience with Fortinet’s unique Context Aware Layers technology. For schools, this means Learning Management System applications can be assigned to one dedicated channel layer, while online classroom video feeds can be dedicated to another channel layer. For healthcare, life-critical applications such as patient monitoring can be dynamically assigned to one channel layer, doctor and nursing applications can be assigned to a second layer, and patient applications can be placed on a third channel layer.
The AP832 also provides unique roaming support because Fortinet enables the network (not the client) to control AP client hand-off via our Air Traffic Control® technology, resulting in the industry’s lowest roaming latency figures – a true zero-handoff.
Additionally, Fortinet’s single-channel technology allows the AP832 to leverage the 802.11ac design for pervasive, real-world deployments of 80 MHz channels, effectively doubling the available data rate and dramatically increasing throughput availability for Fortinet customers.
Like other Fortinet access points, the AP832 integrates seamlessly with our Fortinet Center, Fortinet Connect, Spectrum Manager, and other application solutions to bring intelligent management and resilient wireless services to your network.
