    Overview
    Cisco Wireless WAN can help your business expand rapidly while making critical applications and services available when and where needed. Your business can run applications such as interactive video and TelePresence on a primary 4G LTE WWAN link, which is 10 to 15 times faster and 5 times lower latency than 3G.

    With businesses increasingly relying on cloud and remote applications, WAN connectivity must always be available. FortiExtender can be used as a primary connection or deployed as a backup connection to ensure reliability. FortiExtender integrates directly into the FortiGate security platform. This provides centralized management and enables seamless security. In addition, deep visibility into performance and data usage lets you monitor health and avoid excess data charges.
