For digital workplaces, Aruba 340 access points provide gigabit speeds and outstanding user experiences. These HPE SmartRate APs provide users with unparalleled capacity and performance thanks to their multi-gig Ethernet ports, which are 802.3bz compliant. Its dual-band architecture allows users to double the 5 GHz capacity whenever they need it, without sacrificing performance.
HPE SmartRate Gigabit Ethernet port is compliant with 802.3bz, eliminating wired bottlenecks
Each 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz band can handle 2,166 Mbps (three Gbps in dual-band, 4.3 Gbps in dual-5GHz)
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) radio is built-in for indoor navigation and location services.
Supports Aruba's Dynamic Segmentation solutions
Automatically detect and classify mobile devices that support Wave 2 of 802.11ac.
With ClientMatch, Wave 2 capable devices can be grouped onto a single Wave 2 radio for multi-user MIMO experience without the downsides of 802.11ac. This improves efficiency and network capacity.
Provides Bluetooth-enabled location, asset tracking, and mobile engagement services. In order to expand use cases, an IoT expansion radio can support Zigbee. Without overlay infrastructure or additional IT resources, it can be leveraged as an IoT platform.
Dual-5GHz mode supported, where the 2.4GHz radio becomes 5GHz
Full coverage with both 5 GHz radios, doubling capacity and performance
Designed to isolate two 5 GHz transmitters for higher performance
Depending on system load and capacity, it can convert both bands manually or automatically and dynamically (software controlled).
By controlling channel width and channel selection, AirMatch technology optimizes both 2.4GHz and 5-GHz bands.
ARM (Adaptive Radio Management) ensures fair airtime and avoids RF interference to deliver high-performance wireless networks
Intelligent power monitoring (IPM)
Configured to continuously monitor power consumption and optionally disable certain capabilities based on power availability.
In certain orders, software disables capabilities. USB interfaces will be the first to be powered down when the power budget is exceeded.
Credentials and keys are securely stored and booted through Trusted Platform Modules (TPM).
Provides wireless intrusion protection with integrated threat mitigation without RF sensors.
Protects against advanced online threats by identifying, classifying, and blocking malicious files, URLs, and IP addresses.
SecureJack provides a secure tunneling solution for wired Ethernet traffic.
Provides maximum flexibility by supporting both controller-based and controller-less deployment modes.
Controller-based mode: Traffic is configured, encrypted, enforced, and routed using Aruba Mobility Controllers.
Controller-less mode (Instant) - A cluster of access points virtualizes the controller function. A Controller-based deployment can easily be migrated as the network grows.
There are eight internal omnidirectional down-tilt antennas
Radio 1: Four cross-polarized dual-band downtilt Omni-directional antenna for 4x4 MIMO offers 4.8dBi (2.4GHz) and 5.6dBi (5GHz) peak antenna gains.
Dual-radio mode: used only for 2.4 GHz
Dual-5 GHz mode: only for lower 5 GHz
Radio 0: Four cross-polarized 5 GHz Omni-directional antennas with 5.5dBi peak gains per antenna for 4x4 MIMO
Dual-radio mode: used for full 5 GHz only
Dual-5 GHz mode: used for upper 5 GHz only
Horizontal ceiling mount orientation optimizes for all internal antennas, with a downtilt angle of 30 degrees for maximum gain.
Combined antenna patterns for Radio 1 and Radio 0 yield an average peak gain of 3.1dBi in 2.4 GHz and 2.2dBi in 5 GHz, respectively.
Horizontal planes (top view) show azimuth patterns (0 degrees) and downtilt patterns (30 degrees)
Side view of vertical planes (elevation planes with antennas rotated 0 and 90 degrees) (averaged patterns for all antennas)
A smart HPE port (RJ-45 with a maximum negotiated speed of 2.5Gbps)
Auto-detect link speed (100/1000/2500BASE-T) and MDI/MDX
2.5 Gbps speed that complies with 802.3bz and NBase-T specifications
PoE-PD operates at 48Vdc (nominal) using the 802.3at protocol
IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE)
USB Port: Type A USB 2.0 host interface with up to 5W/1A power supply.
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) radio
Power up to 4 dBm (class 2) and sensitivity down to -91 dBm (class 3)
Vertically polarized antenna with 30-degree downtilt and peak gain of 4.9 dBi (AP-345)
VISUAL INDICATORS: Tri-colored LED indicates system and radio status.
RESET BUTTON : Restore factory settings, control LED mode (on/off)
SERIAL CONSOLE : (proprietary, µUSB physical jack)
Direct DC power and Power over Ethernet (PoE) are supported.
When both power sources are available, DC power takes precedence over PoE.
DC power supply: 48 Volts nominal, +/- 5% for 5% tolerance with power supply.
Power over Ethernet (PoE): 48Vdc (nominal) source compliant with 802.3at/af.
APs will operate with DC power without limitations.
Even when PoE is enabled in unrestricted mode, restrictions may be applied depending on the PoE budget and power consumption. IPM restrictions can be applied programmable.
An 802.3af PoE power source limits both radios to 2x2 operation (APs in dual-radio mode) or 1x1 operation (APs in dual-5GHz mode).
NOTE: Power supplies are sold separately.
Reliability: At 25°C, the mean time between failures is 640khrs (73 years).
