I would like to understand if I could use a FortiAP-xxx-E-I (built for international geographic area) in Europe without issues (it will be managed by a Fortigate) and if I can mix FortiAP-xxx-E-E (built for european geographical area) and FortiAP-xxx-E-I (built for international geographic area) without issues managed by the same Fortigate in the european geographical area.
@Franco Both the FortiAP units may technically work fine on the same FortiGate. However, for local Radio regulatory compliance purposes please consult your local Fortinet SE or Fortinet Reseller/Partner to validate your FortiAP units (with different region code) use-case. Thanks!
Thank you for your reply. I just need to understand if exist technical issues to connect an International version (-I) of a FortiAP to a Fortigate in the European geographic area. For example I know the are issues using a Noth America (-A) version in european environments. What is unclear what's the exact meaning of "International" versions unlike the others (-E, -A). Does it means they can be used everywhere?
I sincerely consider this situation quite odd. It sounds as Fortinet consider "a secret" the meaning of "International version" (-I) and its features. On the contrary I would expect it would be clearly declared.
Then, finally, I have to consider this simple question unanswered. I also asked to the Fortinet technical support...... a lot of talk, but any significative answer. I must conclude they really don't know what they sell and how it works. From my point of view this is unbelievable.
