Based on the 802.11n and 802.11ac standards, Aruba access points (APs) deliver secure Wi-Fi client access to a variety of indoor and outdoor enterprise wireless LAN (WLAN) environments. These versatile, high-performance APs can be centrally managed by Aruba Mobility Controllers or deployed as controllers Aruba Instant APs that are managed in the cloud. In controllers Aruba Instant mode, a dynamically elected AP automatically distributes the network configuration to other Instant APs in the WLAN. Simply power-up one Instant AP, configure it over the air, and plug in the other APs – it only takes about five minutes. When managed by Mobility Controllers, traffic from Aruba APs is centralized to simplify configuration, improve data encryption, provide fine-grained policy enforcement, and deliver other vital network services.Available with single- and dual-radios to meet the most challenging security, client performance and density requirements, Aruba APs feature several unique Wi-Fi capabilities.
