We are planning to install one Fortigate FG-40F and one Fortiextender FEX-511F to have better quality of 5G connectivity in a branch, this site will join the existing SDWAN network. Given this scenario I have the following questions:
Should UTP subscription only be considered in the Firewall?
Should UTP subscription be considered on both devices? (FG and FEX)
The current architecture has FortiManager, should 2 licenses be considered for both devices (FG-40F and FEX)? or just a license for the firewall FG-40F?
Traffic to the Internet would be routed locally through the firewall and corporate traffic sent to headquarters.
The Fortinet Security Fabric brings together the concepts of convergence and consolidation to provide comprehensive cybersecurity protection for all users, devices, and applications and across all network edges.
