Product Review

The Fortinet FG-100E offers a variety of connectivity options, including 14 GE RJ45 ports and 2 GE RJ45 or SFP shared ports, catering to diverse network configurations. However, the absence of internal storage and included transceivers could limit flexibility and increase initial setup costs for some deployments. With its compact 1 RU form factor and rack-mount compatibility, it fits well in standardized data center environments, though the power consumption and heat dissipation might require consideration in densely packed racks.


The Fortinet FG-100E is a network security appliance designed to meet the needs of small to medium-sized enterprises. With its compact form factor and comprehensive range of ports and connectivity options, this device provides a scalable solution for securing network infrastructures. The hardware specifications of the FG-100E highlight its capability to support various network environments efficiently. The unit features 14 GE RJ45 ports, offering ample connections for devices within the network. Additionally, it includes specific ports designated for management, high availability (HA), and DMZ, with configurations as follows: one GE RJ45 management port, two GE RJ45 HA ports, and one GE RJ45 DMZ port. For WAN connectivity, there are two GE RJ45 WAN ports. The device also has two GE RJ45 or SFP shared ports, allowing for flexible fiber or copper connections based on the network requirements. A single USB port and one console port for local management and configuration are also present. Notably, the FG-100E does not come with internal storage or included transceivers, which aligns with its focus on providing essential network security functions without unnecessary additions. The dimensions of the unit are compact, measuring 1.75 inches in height, 17 inches in width, and 10 inches in length, with a weight of 7.28 lbs (3.3 kg), making it suitable for rack mounting in standard 1 RU spaces. It supports both EIA and non-EIA standards for rack installations. Power specifications reveal an input range of 100–240V AC at 50–60 Hz, with a maximum current draw varying between 0.52A at 100V and 0.22A at 240V. The average power consumption is 23.0 W, peaking at 28.6 W, which translates to a heat dissipation of 97.6 BTU/h. These figures demonstrate the FG-100E's efficiency in power use, contributing to its low operational costs. Operating conditions for the FG-100E are broad, capable of functioning within a temperature range from 32°F (0°C) to 104°F (40°C) and at altitudes up to 7,400 ft (2,250 m). It is designed to operate in environments with humidity levels ranging from 10–90% non-condensing. The noise level produced during operation is moderate at 40.4 dBA, suitable for office environments where noise minimization is preferred.
  • Compliance with multiple international standards—including FCC, ICES, CE, RCM, VCCI, BSMI, UL/cUL, and CB—ensures that the FG-100E meets global regulatory requirements.
  • Durability is evidenced by its operational and storage temperature ranges, with the ability to withstand conditions from -31°F (-35°C) to 158°F (–70°C) when not in use.
  • The FG-100E's design prioritizes functionality and ease of use, with no compromise on performance or reliability.
In summary, the Fortinet FG-100E offers a balanced array of network security features and hardware capabilities, making it a versatile choice for businesses looking to protect their digital assets without significant investment in additional hardware.
