Aruba 103 Series

  • Multifunctional and affordable Aruba 103 series wireless access points (APs) maximize mobile device performance in medium-density Wi-Fi environments while minimizing interference from cellular networks.

    These compact and cost-effective APs deliver wireless data rates up to 300 Mbps per radio employing 802.11n technology with two spatial MIMO streams.

    The AP-103 and Instant IAP-103 models feature a 2.4-GHz and a 5-GHz radio, each with 2x2:2 MIMO and two integrated dual-band omni-directional downtilt antennas.
