Fortinet Solves Campus Networking Challenges2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Enterprise Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure
A campus network refers to a network of interconnected local area networks (LANs) connected via switches and routers to create a single cohesive network. It can exist in a single building, often with multiple floors, and grow as large as a corporate or education campus with a group of such buildings.
Digital acceleration trends have expanded IT administrators’ requirements for campus networks. Campus network design has also evolved in response to emerging technologies and changing business outcomes. To securely support and onboard IoT and BYOD devices while providing seamless mobility and application experience for users, an agile, easy-to-manage, and secure platform is required.
