Doubts about Forti AP

Hello everyone¡

 

I was looking at the FAP-U231F-E model and I have the following doubts:

 

These APs are autonomous and can work without a controller or firewall? Without connection to a controller or the cloud, it can work doing UTM functions, could it continue to support MPSK without connection to the internet or the controller?

 

In short, they are fully autonomous for UTM and MPSK functions?

 

Regards

You have to manage the AP using FortiGate or FortiLAN Cloud. When the connection to the controller is lost it is possible for the AP to continue authenticating and serving clients and doing UTP functionality. MPSK is fine.
