  • Wi-Fi client optimization

    To eliminate sticky client behavior while users roam, 200 series APs feature patented ClientMatch technology, which continuously gathers session performance metrics from mobiledevices. If a mobile device moves away from an AP or if RF interference impedes performance, ClientMatch automatically steers the device to a better AP.

  • Advanced cellular coexistence

    ACC lets WLANs perform at peak efficiency by minimizing interference from 3G/4G LTE networks, distributed antenna systems and commercial small cell/femtocell equipment.

  • Quality of service for unified communication apps

    The 200 series APs support priority handling and policy enforcement for unified communication apps, including Microsoft Lync with encrypted videoconferencing, voice, chat and desktop sharing.

  • RF management

    Adaptive Radio Management (ARM) technology automatically assigns channel and power settings, provides airtime fairness and ensures that APs stay clear of all sources of RF interference to deliver reliable, high-performance WLANs. The 200 Series APs can be configured to provide part-time or dedicated air monitoring for spectrum analysis and wireless intrusion protection, VPN tunnels to extend remote locations to corporate resources, and wireless mesh connections where Ethernet drops are not available.

  • Spectrum analysis

    Capable of part-time or dedicated air monitoring, the spectrum analyzer remotely scans the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radio bands to identify sources of RF interference.

  • Security

    With an OpenDNS service subscription, Aruba Instant RAPs deliver integrated web filtering, malware and botnet protection to every device connected to the WLAN. Integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for secure storage of credentials and keys. SecureJack-capable for secure tunneling of wired Ethernet traffic.

  • Controller-managed AP or Remote AP (RAP) running ArubaOS

    When managed by Aruba Mobility Controllers, 200 series APs offer centralized configuration, data encryption, policy enforcement and network services, as well as distributed and centralized traffic forwarding.

  • 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.
