Low-cost 802.11n Wi-Fi for enterprises


Low-cost 802.11n Wi-Fi access points for devices in the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz bands.

These high-performance 802.11n APs deliver wireless data rates up to 300 Mbps per radio and ensure peak performance by utilizing channel bonding, block acknowledgement and MIMO radios. Advanced antenna technology also increases RF signal range and reliability.

The 105 series of APs features two dual-band 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radios with 2×2 MIMO and four integrated omni-directional downtilt antennas, making it ideal for warehouses and high-ceiling deployments. The 104 series features the same radios with external antenna connectors.

Choose your operating mode
The 100 series of APs offers a choice of operating modes to meet your unique management and deployment requirements.

  • Controller-managed mode. When managed by Aruba Mobility Controllers, 100 series APs offer 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™ mode. In Aruba Instant mode, a single AP is dynamically elected the Virtual Controller, which 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 � 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.
