These APs provide high-performance connectivity for any organization struggling with increased IoT, and mobility requirements. HE80/HE20's maximum aggregate data rate is 1.49 Gbps, meeting the needs of schools, midsize offices, and retailers.
Up to 1.49 Gbps of real-world speed (HE80/HE20)
Security with WPA3 and Enhanced Open
Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 5 sticky client issues are resolved by built-in technology
Optimized multiuser performance with OFDMA
Supports Bluetooth 5 and Zigbee for IoT
Utilizes Wi-Fi efficiently and significantly reduces airtime contention to optimize the user experience.
There are various features such as OFDMA (Orthogonal frequency-division multiple access) and cellular optimization. HE80 provides 80MHz channel bandwidth for budget-conscious deployments, with up to 2 spatial streams (2SS).
Benefits of OFDMA:- Handle multiple Wi-Fi 6 capable devices simultaneously, regardless of the traffic type. Clients are not competing for airtime and bandwidth with small sub-carriers or resource units.
CONVENIENCE AND SECURITY
To encrypt and inspect all traffic from the mobility controller to the AP, Aruba's policy enforcement firewall (PEF) feature was included.
WPA3: Latest version of WPA provides enhanced encryption and authentication.
Enhanced open: Automatically encrypt to protect guest network user password & data.
MPSK ( WPA 2): Changing password on one device will be reflected on all other devices as well.
VPN Tunnels: Connect securely to a VPN concentrator through a Secure SSL/IPSec VPN tunnel.
Connectivity: These 500 Series can connect up to 256 clients per radio (512 in total). Client density depends on environmental conditions in real-world scenarios.
Includes Bluetooth 5 and 802.15.4 (for Zigbee support) to simplify location services, asset tracking, security solutions, and IoT sensor deployment. As a result, organizations can leverage the 500 Series as an IoT platform, reducing IT resources and overlaying infrastructure costs.
Transmit beamforming - Improve signal range and reliability
Hotspot 2.0 (Passpoint Wi-Fi) - Carryover of cellular to WiFi for guests
Dynamic Frequency Selection - Optimize RF spectrum usage
Maximum Ratio Combining - Receiver performance improve
Cyclic Delay/Shift Diversity (CDD/CSD) - Improve RF performance on the downlink
Space-Time Block Coding - Enhance range and reception
Wifi Antenna: Two (Female) RP-SMA connectors for dual-band antennas (A0 and A1, which correspond to radio chains 0 and 1). Worst-case interface loss (due to duplexing circuitry) of 0.7 dB in 2.4GHz and 1.3 dB in 5GHz.
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)
Ethernet Port E0:

Serial console: Physical USB Micro-B jack console
Security slot: Kensington security
IOT POWER :
BLE (5.0): Transmit power up to 7dBm (class 1) and receive sensitivity up to 93dBm (1Mbps).
Zigbee (802.15.4): Transmit power up to 6dBm, receive power up to -96dBm
A vertically polarized omnidirectional antenna with roughly 30 degrees of downtilt and peak gain of 3.3 dB.
Supports both DC power and Power over Ethernet
DC power takes priority over POE in the presence of both DC and POE power sources
Function without restrictions when powered by DC or 802.3 at (class 4) POE.
USB port will be disabled when powered by 802.3 at (class 3) POE.
Same configuration with IPM enabled starts unrestricted, but dynamically applies restrictions according to POE budget. Restrictions and order are programmed.
NOTE: Power sources aren't included
EOL: An operational temperature of +25C yields a MTBF of 1.3M hours (148 years).
Operating systems: ArubaOS
Software version: Aruba InstantOS 188.8.131.52
NOTE: Mounting bracket is pre-installed on the back. It secures AP to any mounting kit (sold separately).
