is a family of 3G/4G Wireless WAN extenders, designed to integrate with
the FortiGate Connected UTM to provide a secure 3G/4G Wireless WAN
connection for Distributed Enterprise and SMB locations. The tight
integration of the FortiExtender and Connected UTM provides a single
pane of glass for management, as well as security policy enforcement,
reporting and alerting for the Wireless WAN connection.

FortiExtender devices can be physically separated from the FortiGate,
allowing for installation near a window or outdoors to optimize the
3G/4G signal strength. Suitable for use as a secondary failover
connection to the wired WAN link for improved business continuity, or as
a primary WAN link, the FortiExtender provides ultimate flexibility and
choice for your WAN connectivity.

Managed and Secured from the FortiGate – Each
FortiExtender appears as a standard interface on the FortiGate, enabling
centralized management and complete UTM security to be applied to the
3G/4G WAN connection.
Deep Visibility – Connection status as well as data
usage management and alerts are visible from the FortiGate, allowing you
to monitor the health of your connection and avoid excess data usage
