Aruba 387 Access Point

802.11ad and 802.11ac for high speed outdoor point-to-point connectivity

Contact Sales
  • 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. Also for improved network simplicity and security, Dynamic Segmentation automatically enforces real-time device-level access policies on Aruba wired and wireless networks.

    • 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.
