  • Affordable and multifunctional 200-series 802.11ac APs maximize mobile device performance in medium-density Wi-Fi environments.

    With support for two spatial streams, these compact dual-radio APs deliver wireless data rates up to 867 Mbps for 802.11ac and up to 300 Mbps for 802.11n-enabled mobile devices.

    The AP-205 and IAP-205 models feature four integrated omni-directional downtilt antennas, while the AP-204 and IAP-204 support external detachable dual-band antennas using two RP-SMA antenna connectors.

    • Get a big performance advantage

      Patented ClientMatch™ technology improves performance and eliminates sticky client behavior while roaming.
    • Protect service quality over the air

      AppRF technology enables prioritization and policy enforcement for business-critical enterprise apps like Microsoft Lync.
    • You have the freedom to choose

      The 200 series can be managed by an Aruba Mobility Controller or deployed in controllerless Aruba Instant mode.

      ADVANCED FEATURES
      • 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
        • Integrated wireless intrusion protection offers thread protection and mitigation, and eliminates the need for separate RF sensors and security appliances.
        • IP reputation and security services identify, classify, and block malicious files, URL and IPs, providing comprehensive protection against advanced online threats.
        • Integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for secure storage of credentials and keys.
        • SecureJack-capable for secure tunneling of wired Ethernet traffic.
