Aruba RAP-3

  • The multifunctional Aruba RAP-3 delivers secure 802.11n wireless and wired network access to corporate resources from branch and home offices.

    Centrally managed by Aruba Mobility Controllers, the RAP-3 extends corporate resources to remote locations by establishing site-to-site VPN tunnels to the data center.

    To eliminate client stickiness, the RAP-3 includes integrated ClientMatch™ technology, which continuously gathers session performance metrics and uses this data to every device to the best AP and radio on the WLAN, even while users roam and RF conditions change.

    • ADVANCED FEATURES
      • Zero-touch provisioning as well as automated firmware upgrades and inventory management with the cloud-based Aruba Activate service.
      • ClientMatch technology eliminates sticky clients by continuously gathering session performance metrics and using this information to steer them to the best AP and radio.
      • ARM technology delivers best-in-class RF management, including automatic transmit power and channel control with auto coverage-hole correction.
      • Security
        • With an OpenDNS service subscription, Aruba Instant RAPs delivers 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
