802.11ac, Dual-radio, Three-stream Wi-Fi Outdoor Access Point
The OAP832e is an 802.11ac outdoor access point (AP) capable of supporting a variety of external antennas. Designed for high-density deployments such as stadiums, arenas, university campuses, hospitals, convention centers, and warehouses. The OAP832e supports an aggregate 1.75 Gbps data rate for demanding business applications like video and voice.
The OAP832e access point allows administrators to prioritize applications with Fortinet’s unique channel-layering technology to improve the user experience. For schools, this means Learning Management System applications can be assigned to a dedicated channel layer, while online classroom video feeds can be carried on another channel layer. For healthcare, life- critical applications such as patient monitoring can be dynamically assigned to one channel layer, doctor and nursing applications to a second layer, and patient applications to a third.
The OAP832e 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 OAP832e to leverage the 802.11ac design for pervasive, real-world deployments of 80MHz channels, effectively doubling the available data rate and dramatically increasing throughput.
As with other Fortinet APs, the OAP832e integrates seamlessly with Mobile Center, Mobile Connect, Spectrum Manager, and other applications to bring intelligent management and resilient wireless services to your network.
