Aruba's Wi-Fi 6 access points provide high-performance connectivity for IoT and mobility. 2.97Gbps combined peak data rate gives enterprises the speed and reliability they need.
Combined peak data rate up to 2.97Gbps
Security with WPA3 and Enhanced Open
Built-in technology to resolve sticky client issues for Wi-Fi 6 & 5
Enhance multi-user efficiency with OFDMA and MU-MIMO
Supports Bluetooth 5 and Zigbee for IoT
Accurate indoor location measurement using embedded ranging
User experience is enhanced by maximizing Wi-Fi efficiency and reducing airtime contention between clients.
It includes Orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA), bi-directional multi-user MIMO, and cellular optimization.
Groundbreaking wireless capabilities include four spatial streams and 160MHz channel bandwidth.
Concurrent client channel per radio
1 @ time
Wifi 6 in 20 MHz
Upto 9 @ time
Wifi 6 in 40 MHz
Upto 18 @ time
Wifi 6 in 80 MHz
Upto 37 @ time
Multiple wifi 6 clients can be handled on each channel. Sub-carriers or resource units (RUs) share channels for optimized channel utilization.
Wi-Fi 6 & MU-MIMO
Aruba's patented ClientMatch technology matches Wi-Fi 6 devices with best access point. It guides mobile devices to best AP based on bandwidth, applications, and traffic type.
Includes Bluetooth 5.0 and Zigbee (802.11.5.4)
Service deployment & management for IoT locations.
Improves airtime contention and power efficiency with TWT ( Target Wake Time )
These networks combine MU-MIMO downlinks with spatial stream uplinks, just as in Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac Wave 2). By doubling number of clients sending traffic, it enhances client-AP spatial stream diversity.
A Secure Fabric protects authentication and wireless traffic. A few capabilities are :
WPA3: Stronger encryption and authentication in latest WPA release.
Enhanced Open: Passwords and data are automatically encrypted for users connected to guest networks.
WPA2-MPSK: Simpler passkey management for changing WiFi passwords.
Important note: Clearpass policy manager required.
VPN Tunnels: Mobile controllers act as VPN concentrators to establish secure SSL/IPSec VPN tunnels.
OTHER WIFI BENEFITS:
Transmit beamforming: Ability to increase range and reliability of signals being transmitted.
Passpoint Wi-Fi (2.0): Transfers data seamlessly from cellular to Wi-Fi.
Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS): For maximizing use of RF waves spectrum
Cyclic Delay/Shift Diversity (CDD/CSD): Improves performance of RF transmissions during downlink phase.
Space-Time Block Coding: Enhances range and reception of signal.
Dual-band downtilt omnidirectional antennas for 4x4 MIMO with peak antenna gain of 3.5 dBi at 2.4GHz and 5.4 dBi at 5GHz.
A horizontal ceiling mount orientation of AP is optimal for built-in antennas.
It is best to tilt down 30 degrees for maximum gain.
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)
Note: When MIMO radio antenna patterns are combined, peak gain at 2.4GHz is 1.9dBi, and at 5GHz it is 3.5dBi.
Ethernet & USB Port
HPE smart rate RJ45 port negotiates a 5 GBit/s speed
Auto-sensing link speed (100/1000/2500/5000 BASE-T) and MDI/MDX.
Speeds of 2.5Gbps and 5Gbps comply with NBase-T and 802.3bz specifications.
USB Port: (2.0): Offers up to 1A and 5W of current devices attached to it.
Visual indicators: Two multi-color LEDs to show system status.
Reset Button: Factory reset, LED mode control (normal/off)
Transmit Power (IoT)
BLE (5.0): Up to 8dBm of transmit power (class 1), -95dBm of receiving power.
Zigbee (802.15.4): Transmit power up to 8 dBm, receive power up to 99 dBm.
With approximately 30 degrees downtilt, it offers 5.0dB gain (AP-534).
Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF): 995,000 hours (~114 years) at +25C operating temperature.
NOTE: Mean time to failure (MTTF) is a maintenance metric that measures how long it takes a non-repairable asset to fail.
POWER SOURCE AND CONSUMPTION:
Both direct DC power and Power over Ethernet (PoE) support
POE passes on both Ethernet ports as AP can prioritize or combine power sources.
DC power takes priority over POE power when both are available.
Operate without restrictions when powered by DC, 802.3bt (class 5) POE, or 2x 802.3 at (class 4) POE.
USB port and other Ethernet ports are disabled when powered by 1x 802.3 at (class 4) POE and with IPM disabled.
When IPM is enabled in AP unrestricted mode, dynamic restrictions depend on POE budget & power.
Note: Restrictions and orders can be programmed.
Operating systems: ArubaOS
Software version: Aruba InstantOS 220.127.116.11 ( With Some Restriction)
