Aruba 228

  • Rugged, indoor 228 wireless APs deliver gigabit Wi-Fi performance to 802.11ac mobile devices in harsh indoor environments such as warehouses and stadiums.

    Its unique industrial design supports a wider range of temperatures for environments that lack heating and cooling. The 228 also features six RP-SMA connectors for external high-gain antennas in large public venue.

    With a maximum data rate of 1.3 Gbps in the 5-GHz band and 600 Mbps in the 2.4-GHz band, the 228 is three-times faster than 802.11n APs and provides performance similar to a wired connection.

    • 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 228 AP can be managed by an Aruba Mobility Controller or deployed in controllerless Aruba Instant mode.
