What's new in FortiAP-U version 6.0.0

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

The following is a list of new features and enhancements in FortiAP-U version 6.0.0, when managed by a FortiGate running FortiOS version 6.2.2 and later, or by FortiAP Cloud:

  • Support for new "Wi-Fi 6" (IEEE 802.11ax standard) AP models: FAP-U431F and FAP-U433F
      • FAP-U431F and FAP-U433F profiles have two configurable platform modes:
        • "Dual 5GHz" mode: Configure 3 radios as one lower 5GHz band, one higher 5GHz band and one 2.4GHz band respectively.
        • "Single 5GHz" mode: Configure 3 radios as one full 5GHz band, one 2.4GHz band, and one dedicated monitor or sniffer.
      • High Efficiency (HE) configured per SSID
      • Target Wake Time (TWT) configured per SSID
  • FAP-U421EV, FAP-U422EV, and FAP-U423EV support 160MHz channel bonding on the 5GHz 802.11ac band (DFS certification required).

    Note: FAP-U431F and FAP-U433F will support 160MHz channel bonding on the 5GHz 802.11ax/ac band after DFS certification.

  • Wireless Intrusion Detection System (WIDS)
  • Rogue station scan and rogue AP suppression
  • Protected Management Frames (PMF) on mesh-backhaul SSID
  • Bonjour gateway
  • ACK Timeout adjustable by the max-distance setting in wtp-profile.

  • FAP-U24JEV LAN ports bridged to tunnel-mode SSIDs support split-tunneling function for wired clients.
  • FortiPresence v7.1 Push API update
    • Send AP Tx power as part of the FAP ID packets
  • Up-to-date WiFi and country code adjustments.
  • Dynamic frequency selection (DFS) certified stock keeping units (SKU):
