FortiExtender is a plug-and-play customer premises equipment (CPE) device. As a 3G/4G LTE and 5G wireless WAN extender, FortiExtender can provide a primary WAN link for retail POS, ATM, and kiosk systems, or a failover WAN link to your primary Internet connection to ensure business continuity. You can deploy it both indoors and outdoors by choosing the right model and appropriate enclosures.
FortiExtender can be deployed in standalone mode as a wireless router, managed individually or centrally from FortiExtender Cloud, or managed by FortiGate as part of the integrated Fortinet Fabric Solutions.
This Guide is for FortiExtender managed by FortiGate only. For information about standalone FortiExtender or FortiExtender managed by FortiExtender Cloud, refer to their respective Admin Guides.
