Aruba Networks have a great range of Wireless Products, both centralised via a controller as well as “controllerless” access points. Whether you choose to go via a centralised controller or not, is your choice. However both solutions have benefits depending upon your business, user and security requirements and Khipu can advise the best solution for you. The latest Aruba 802.11ac and 802.11n access points (APs) deliver superb Wi-Fi performance to a wide range of indoor and outdoor WLAN environments.
With flexible deployment options, enterprise-class Aruba access points can be centrally managed by Aruba Mobility Controllers or operate in controller-less Aruba Instant™ mode. When managed by mobility controllers, Aruba access points provide centralised network configuration, data encryption, policy enforcement and network services, as well as distributed and centralised traffic forwarding.
In Aruba Instant mode, a single access point 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. Aruba access points are available with single and dual radios to meet the most challenging client performance, deployment and density requirements.
They integrate Adaptive Radio Management™, ClientMatch™, wireless intrusion protection, spectrum analysis functions and support wireless mesh and remote AP deployment options.
Have you heard about 802.11ac?
802.11ac wireless LANs (WLANs) operate at gigabit speeds and connect more devices and apps. But that’s not enough. Aruba 802.11ac APs are designed from the ground-up with unique hardware and software that improves the mobility experience of users – even if they use 802.11n devices.
The below video explains where 802.11ac is today and where we are going in the future.
It is ~17 minutes long but well worth a watch if you are technically minded.
Aruba 802.11ac APs offer more Wi-Fi capacity for devices that are farther away and leverage your existing wired infrastructure. They also support patented ClientMatch™ technology to eliminate sticky clients and AppRF technology to prioritize the handling of cloud apps and unified communications.
Unique to Aruba Wireless LANs is the use of contextual data. Aruba WLANs profile user identity, device type, application usage, location and time-of-day to enforce policies that meet the toughest compliance requirements.
