Fortinet Wireless Previous Solutions

Our previous wireless solution was Cisco. That was our first wireless solution. We used Cisco 3500s and 3700s. We needed to upgrade so we could handle more bandwidth, because the access points that we had were starting to get overloaded, and older. When we were looking for a solution, that's when we did the tests. We got a few in, in a couple of buildings, and did some tests. We wanted to see how the Fortinet solution worked. That's what really sold us on it: how easily they integrated with everything else - because we had the FortiGate - and the way it just popped into the environment. As a result, we started looking further into the switches. When we did our upgrade, we upgraded the switches at the same time that we upgraded the FortiAPs. We were able to greatly increase the security on our entire network. View full review »

We used to have some HPE equipment. We switched from those old access points. We use Fortinet as a preferred vendor, but if a customer wants or needs to use equipment from other vendors, we sell equipment from other vendors. View full review »

We switched primarily due to feature functionality and cost. It offered a lot more value. View full review »
