What's new in FortiAP-U version 6.0.3

For FortiAP-U features managed by a FortiWLC, see the Wireless Controller documentation.

FortiAP-U version 6.0.3 supports the following new features, when managed by a FortiGate running FortiOS version 6.2.4 and later, or by FortiAP Cloud:

  • WPA3 security modes.
  • Enforce admin password upon initial login.
  • Report WiFi clients' real noise-floor value to FortiGate.
  • MU-MIMO control per SSID (enabled by default).
  • Schedules of multiple pre-shared key (MPSK).
  • External captive-portal SSID and RADIUS CoA support in Bridge mode and Local-Standalone mode.
  • DHCP snooping and option 82 insertion.
  • Security-exempt list support on captive-portal SSID.
  • Receiver Start of Packet Detection Threshold (RX-SOP).
  • Report FortiAP uplink status and interface transmitting and receiving counters to FortiGate.
  • Client OS detection via DHCP fingerprint and report to FortiGate.
  • Report scanned Bluetooth devices to FortiPresence.
  • Extended wireless event logs for WiFi station health.
  • Wireless Quality-of-Service (QoS) profile.
  • MAC address filter on Local-Standalone SSID.
  • Report FAP-U admin login and logout activities to FortiGate system event logs.
  • Management frame (authentication request and association request) flood detection in WIDS profile.
  • Added TLS v1.2 cipher suites.
  • Enable DFS channels on FAP-U431F and FAP-U433F with region T, and J.
  • DHCP option 43 insertion through local-bridging SSID (FortiGate needs FortiOS 6.4.1 or later).
  • 802.11ax BSS Coloring on FAP-U431F and FAP-U433F (FortiGate needs FortiOS 6.4.2 or later).
  • New Spectrum Analysis on FAP-U431F and FAP-U433F (FortiGate needs FortiOS 6.4.2 or later).

    Note: The 3rd radio of FAP-U431F and FAP-U433F doesn't support Spectrum Analysis. Before implementing Spectrum Analysis on FortiGate side, the 3rd radio of FAP-U431F and FAP-U433F should be disabled.
