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 are location-ready with an integrated BLE radio to support asset tracking and beacon management.

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.
