I am searching for docs that do a better job of explaining the Fortinet switch architecture and philosophy. Specifically references to the use of the ASICS to expand on why there are separate commands for interface, physical-port, and phy-mode, for example.
It is not intended to be a gripe, I just want to understand the philosophy and or science.
We have 548’s, 1048’s, 3032’s all which require a reboot to change SFP+ ports phy-mode for example, which demand a second switch to keep application services highly available.
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.
