  • The Aruba 387 access points are a cost-effective, simple to deploy and high performing point-to-point solution that is built upon Aruba’s hardened outdoor portfolio.

    Weather-proof and temperature hardened, the Aruba AP-387 withstands the harshest outdoor environments.

    With a maximum concurrent data rate of 2.5 Gbps in the 60GHz band and 867 Mbps in the 5GHz band, the AP-387 delivers an aggregate peak on air data rate of 3.37 Gbps.

    The AP-387 is perfect for quickly and reliably connecting remote buildings, overcoming right of way issues or installing failover links in the event of line cuts or crushed conduit pipes.

    • Simple to deploy

      Simple to deploy

      The AP-387 uniquely leverages intelligent 60GHz radio auto-alignment at deployment and during operation.
    • Reliable

      Reliability you can count on

      Uniquely designed with two separate radios in the event of 60GHz failure, the AP intelligently falls back to the 5GHz radio.
    • Built for outdoors

      Purpose built for the outdoors

      Hardened hardware ensures your point-to-point Wi-Fi can endure extreme temperature and moisture.
