Fortigate 200A

We have a 2Meg  internet link on the fortigate 200A WAN port.
This internet service serves all the users on the first floor.

We got a new tenant in our building who needs internet services from us.
the will use their own switch for their LAN.

Another requirement for the tenant is that, they would want 1 Meg
for their internet and also their own public IP.

Our ISP already gave us some public IPs of which we use only one for
the WAN interface of the Fortigate 200A.

My questions are:
1. From which interface on the Fortigate should i connect the tenant's switch to
2. Is it possible to dedicate 1Meg from our 2Meg internet link to them?
3. Can i assign one of our Public IP Addresses to them

You would set up QoS on their link to only allow them 1Mb and route all traffic from their public IP to whatever port you connect them to.

You'll have to discuss with them any filtering or other rules they want applied to their connection.

yes...i guess you have spare ports on the firewall...

You can terminate your 2 Meg internet link on a switch and then put two uplinks on the the firewall...first you can have for ur use...second port can be used for the can connect your firewalls another port with tenents switch and assign that port a private ip...

you can apply traffic shaping on the policy for the tenent...

One thing I thought of... the 200A has an internal switch for the LAN ports. For maximum security, you'll want to take the LAN ports out of switching mode. That way your traffic and their traffic aren't going to get mixed.
