Enterprises are increasingly taking advantage of wireless WAN technology not only as a backup for their wired WAN connections, but also as the primary WAN connection in locations such as; small branch offices, retail pop-up stores, Point of Sale systems and kiosks. A FortiExtender 3G/4G LTE Wireless WAN Extender enables a reliable and stable connection to support these applications.
