Does Fortinet access point - the FortiAP - only work with a fortigate device or can you plug it into any brand router or add to any existing wireless network. So for example if I had 3 Ruckus could I just add a FortiAP to that network to get more coverage? Someone told me that you have to have a fortigate or else it wont work. Is this true?
FortiCloud is an option as well without having an additional hardware to manage FAPs. Below is only mentioning the old "C" models but I believe newer models should be covered as well. You at least need to have a support contract on your AP to have FortiCloud access. Not sure if any further cloud license is necessary to have advanced features. Somebody from FTNT should be able to clarify.
