New to FortiExtender. Trying to determine if using FortiExtenders might be a good choice for a WAN2 connection in the event that the existing WAN1 connection goes off-line for a time.
> Yes, FortiExtender can be used either as a Primary or a Backup WAN Link

I'm curious what options exist to subscribe to the SIM cards.
I know that some cellular carriers have fairly low cost data plans, but that it is easy to exceed the allowed data usage. I think that there are other plans that have high or unlimited data useage caps but that are quite expensive.
Does Fortinet offer cellular data plans? Are there some plans that are well suited for this usage? Do any plans pool data allotments such that a single SIM card in use in a month can use the pooled plan minutes of all SIM card plans?
> It's a user discretion as to what Carrier SIM and Data plan they like to choose, user can discuss their requirements with their local Telecom Service Providers
Users preference varies, but normally Users choose a SIM Carrier that has reliable Cellular, better signal reception, and affordable SIM data plans
> Yes, on FortiExtender you can create a data-plan and also enable "SIM-switch" feature to trigger SIM Switch using the following parameters:
by-disconnect - The SIM card switches when the active card gets disconnected according to the 'disconnect-threshold' and 'disconnect-period'.
by-signal - The SIM card switches when the signal strength gets weaker than the signal-threshold.
by-data-plan - The SIM card switches when 'capacity' is overrun and 'overage' is enabled.
Please consult your local Fortinet SE or Fortinet Reseller/Partner with your WAN Network design requirements and they can guide you better in this regard
