Aruba AP-103 802.11n Wireless Access Point
AP-205 and IAP-205 - 2.4-GHz (300 Mbps max rate) and 5-GHz (867 Mbps max rate) radios, each with 2x2 MIMO and four integrated omni-directional downtilt antennas
Multifunctional and affordable Aruba 103 series wireless access points (APs) maximize mobile device performance in medium-density Wi-Fi environments while minimizing interference from cellular networks.
These compact and cost-effective APs deliver wireless data rates up to 300 Mbps per radio employing 802.11n technology with two spatial MIMO streams.
The AP-103 and Instant IAP-103 models feature a 2.4-GHz and a 5-GHz radio, each with 2x2:2 MIMO and two integrated omni-directional downtilt antennas per radio.
Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC)
Aruba’s Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC) feature enables WLANs to perform at peak efficiency by minimizing interference from 3G/4G LTE networks, distributed antenna systems and commercial small cell/femtocell equipment.
Wi-Fi client optimization
To eliminate sticky client behavior while users roam, the Aruba 103 series APs feature Aruba’s patented ClientMatch™ technology, which continuously gathers session performance metrics from mobile devices.
If a mobile device moves away from an AP or if RF interference impedes performance, ClientMatch automatically steers the device to a better AP.
Quality of service for Lync
Aruba 103 series APs additionally support priority handling and policy enforcement for individual Microsoft Lync media on the same device, including encrypted videoconferencing, voice, chat and desktop sharing.
CHOOSE YOUR OPERATING MODE
The 200 series APs offer a choice of operating modes to meet your unique management and deployment requirements.
- Controller-managed mode. When managed by Aruba Mobility Controllers, the AP-103 offers centralized configuration, data encryption, policy enforcement and network services, as well as distributed and centralized traffic forwarding. Please refer to the Aruba Mobility Controller data sheets for more details.
- Aruba Instant™ AP running InstantOS™. In Aruba Instant mode, a single AP automatically distributes the network configuration to other Instant APs in the WLAN. Simply power-up on Instant AP, configure it over the air, and plug in the other APs – the entire process takes about five minutes.
For large installations across multiple sites, the Aruba Activate™ service significantly reduces deployment time by automating device provisioning, firmware upgrades, and inventory management. With Aruba Activate, Instant APs are factory-shipped to any site and configure themselves when powered up.
If WLAN requirements change, a built-in migration path allows 200 series Instant APs to become part of a WLAN that is managed by a Mobility Controller.
