The FortiAP-11C is a small plug and play wireless access point suitable for travel or remote access. This compact device provides an IEEE 802.11 b/g/n radio and two Ethernet ports and an integrated power plug for flexible operation as a remote AP.

The remote access point function will allow IT personal to ship pre-configured devices to remote employees. Once plugged in, the AP automatically discovers the FortiGate wireless controller over the Internet, download its configuration and offers the same SSID used in corporate environments. This enables remote employees to gain secure encrypted network access to enterprise resources over the Internet. This feature also allows IT administrators to save time and reduce helpdesk calls by eliminating the need to assist remote users to resolve access issues.
