Suitable AP's for Site Survey Mode

Can anyone provide details for a suitable Fortinet AP to be used in Site Survey Mode, in particular a current FAP model?

 

We are currently using an AP832e but its looking a bit worse for wear so we need to replace it.

 

Thanks in advance

Hi Chris,

 

It depends on your exact requirements. You can compare all current FortiAP models at the bellow resources:

Hi, 

 

Does this mean that since 2018 all Fortinet APs have site survey capabilities? 

Because this article in 2018 says there's only 4 recommended APs and they are all EoL now.

Yes you just need to set them to site survey mode using CLI.

 

You can use FortiPlanner for site survey functionality.  

 

See page 19 of the admin guide: https://docs.fortinet.com/document/fortiplanner/2.2.0/fortiplanneruserguide
