Aruba 802.11ac wireless access points deliver superb Wi-Fi performance – they can be deployed as controller-managed or controllerless Aruba Instant APs depending on the design, scope and scale of your wireless network. And our newest Wave 2 APs deliver screaming fast 11ac speeds with a HPE Smart Rate multi-gig uplink to boost network performance in high-density environments.
While 802.11ac Wave 1 offers secure, lightning fast Wi-Fi, Wave 2 takes it a step further and boosts network efficiency — even for legacy 802.11n clients. And when it comes to power, 802.11ac is incredibly efficient, extending battery life by over 30%.
Wave 2 takes Wi-Fi to the next level
Aruba 802.11ac Wave 2 access points deliver the fastest 11ac yet, and come with multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) aware ClientMatch to boost network efficiency and support the growing device density demands on your network. These APs also have an integrated BLE Beacon to remotely manage battery-powered Aruba Beacons.
Rev up your Wi-Fi
In the past, an AP stream could only transmit to one device at a time, and other clients had to wait their turn. Now, with ClientMatch, Aruba APs can group MU-MIMO capable devices on Wave 2 APs, increasing network capacity. Even the slowest clients get a boost.
Why is everyone deploying 802.11ac now?
Get ready. Well over 1,000 models of mobile devices sold today are 802.11ac-certified and they’ll be connecting at a workplace near you. This has enterprises scrambling to futureproof their networks in preparation for the influx of 802.11ac devices.
Why Aruba 802.11ac Wave 2?
Our latest 802.11ac Wave 2 APs are a cut above the competition. The 300, 310, 320, and 330 series are powered by ClientMatch technology — making sure all devices have the fastest connection at all times and multi-user MIMO capable devices can actually make use of the technology. They come with an integrated Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacon to help remotely manage battery-powered Aruba Beacons.
Identify what’s on your wired or wireless network
Security starts with understanding what’s on the network. What devices are being used, how many, and which operating systems are supported? ClearPass has a built-in profiling engine that collects real-time data including device categories, vendors, and OS versions. And the new standalone ClearPass Universal Profiler provides the same visibility for those not ready for full policy enforcement.
Enforce smart policies
Organizations must adapt to today’s evolving devices and their use – whether the device is a smartphone, a printer, or a surveillance camera. Once you know what’s on your network, it’s time to enforce policies that provide proper user and device access, regardless of user, device type or location.
Protect resources via dynamic policy controls and threat remediation
It’s expensive and time-consuming to invest in security and it’s almost impossible to keep ahead of the hackers by innovating alone. Aruba’s ClearPass Exchange ecosystem is designed to bring together best-of-breed third-party solutions to provide end-to-end security at the edge.
