Aruba's midrange 303 Series campus access points support high-performance 802.11ac with multiuser MU-MIMO (Wave 2). With the integrated BLE and 802.3af power, these series reduce total cost of ownership for enterprises.
Its compact design delivers 867 Mbps in 5GHz and 300 Mbps in 2.4GHz (for an aggregate peak data rate of 1.2Gbps). 2x2:2SS design makes it suitable for medium-device-density environments, including schools, retail stores, warehouses, hotels, and enterprise offices.
➢ KEY FEATURES:
➛Maximum aggregate peak data rate up to 1.2 Gbps
➛ Secondary PoEout port of another AP used to daisy-chain
➛ Contributes to Aruba's Dynamic Segmentation solution
▸Unified AP – controller-based or controller-less- these Series can be deployed with either ArubaOS or InstantOS.
▸ Dual radio 802.11ac access point with MU MIMO (wave 2) - Supports up to 867Mbps in 5GHz band and 300Mbps in 2.4GHz band (with 2SS/HT40 clients).
▸ Built-in Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) radio -Enables position-based services with multiple beacons at once -Enables asset tracking with Asset Tag
▸ Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC) - Reduces interference from 3G/4G cellular networks, distributed antenna systems, small cells, and femtocells
▸ Adaptive Radio Management (ARM) - AirMatch automatically adjusts channel, width, and power settings according to the environment and client density.It ensures airtime fairness and keeps APs free of RF interference for reliable, high-performance WLANs
▸Aruba Secure Core -Device assurance: Secure storage of credentials and keys via Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
Wireless intrusion protection eliminates the need for separate RF sensors and security appliances with integrated wireless intrusion protection.
Advanced online threats can be identified, classified, and blocked with IP reputation and security services
▸Supports both controller-based and controller-less deployment modes, providing maximum flexibility.
▸Controller-based mode – Works with Aruba Mobility Controllers, providing centralized configuration, data encryption, policy enforcement, and network services.
▸ A controller-less (Instant) mode virtualizes the controller function by aggregating APs into a cluster. It is easy to migrate to controller-based deployments as the network grows.
▸ Branch deployment via Remote AP (RAP)
▸ Detection and containment of rogues using air monitors (AM)
▸ A spectrum analyzer (SA) dedicated to identifying RF interference sources
