Aruba 303H Access Point

  • This access point combines wireless and wired access in a single compact device. It’s ideal for hotels, medical clinics, classrooms, branch offices and remote workstations which often require flexible and easy deployment options.

    Three local Gigabit Ethernet ports are available to securely attach wired devices to your network. One of these ports is also capable of supplying PoE power to the attached device.

    Integrated Bluetooth Aruba Beacon simplifies the remote management of a large-scale network of battery-powered BLE Aruba Beacons while also providing advanced location and indoor wayfinding, and proximity-based push notification capabilities.

      POWER SOURCES AND CONSUMPTION
      • The AP supports direct DC power and Power over Ethernet (PoE)
      • When both power sources are available, DC power takes priority over PoE
      • Power sources are sold separately
      • Direct DC power source: 48Vdc nominal, +/- 5%
      • Power over Ethernet (PoE): 48 Vdc (nominal) 802.3af/802.3at compliant source
        • Unrestricted functionality with direct DC power. When using an 802.3af PoE source, the PoE out (PSE) capability of the 303H is always disabled.
        • Without IPM, both the USB port and PoE out (PSE) capability are disabled when the AP is powered by an 802.3af PoE source, and either the USB port or the PoE out (PSE) capability is disabled when powered by an 802.3at PoE source (PSE capability is disabled by default).
        • When using IPM, the AP may enter power-save mode with reduced functionality when powered by a PoE source (see details on Intelligent Power Monitoring elsewhere in this datasheet)
      • Maximum (worst-case) power consumption: 9.7W
        • Excludes power consumed by external USB and/or PoE-PD device (and internal losses); this could add up to 6.1W (PoE) for a 5W/1A USB device and up to 15.6W for a max load (15.4W) 802.3af PoE-PD device
      • Maximum (worst-case) power consumption in idle mode: 4.9W (PoE) or 4.8W (DC)
      MOUNTING
      • The AP ships with a mounting plate to attach the AP to a single-gang wall-box (most international variations covered). A security screw (T8H) is provided to ensure that the AP cannot (easily) be removed from its mount without a specialized tool.
      • Several optional mount kits are available to attach the AP to a dual-gang wall-box, directly to the wall, or to support desk mounting.
