Aruba 630 Series Wi-Fi 6E APs

Unlock the 6GHz band to provide fast, resilient, and secure Wi-Fi 6E connectivity.

First enterprise-grade Wi-Fi 6E solution

For enterprises who will need more wireless capacity and wider channels to grow, Aruba 630 Series APs take advantage of the 6 GHz band via three dedicated radios.

High performance, more capacity

High performance, more capacity

The 630 Series APs are designed to take advantage of the 6 GHz band, which translates into far greater speeds, wider channels for multi-gigabit traffic, and less interference. It delivers 3.9 Gbps maximum aggregate data rates Tri-radio, 2x2:2 MIMO in all three bands (3.9Gbps aggregate peak).

Icon for less interference Less interference

Less interference

630 Series APs include Aruba’s unique ultra tri-band filtering, which enables enterprises to take advantage of the high end of 5 GHz band with the lower end of 6 GHz without experiencing signal interference or performance degradation.

Icon for high efficiency Ultimate efficiency

Ultimate efficiency

The 630 Series APs are based on the 802.11ax standard, which means that all its efficiency and security enhancements are also available on the 6 GHz band. Features include Orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA), Multi-User MIMO as well as other capabilities built into Aruba’s Wi-Fi 6 access points. 

Icon for Iot location ready IoT and location ready

IoT and location ready

The 630 Series includes an integrated Bluetooth 5 and 802.15.4 radio for Zigbee support to simplify deploying and managing IoT-based location services, asset tracking services, security solutions, and IoT sensors.

More wireless capacity with ultra tri-band filtering

Aruba 630 Series APs take advantage of the 6 GHz band and include ultra tri-band filtering and dual 2.5 Gbps ethernet ports to eliminate coverage gaps and deliver fast, secure connectivity.

Business continuity

Ensures high availability with two 2.5 Gbps HPE® Smart Rate ethernet ports for hitless failover for both data and power.

Built-in security

Includes Wi-Fi 6E standards such as WPA3 and Enhanced Open and WPA2-MPSK for stronger encryption and authentication.

Role-based access

Improves security and ease of management by allowing IT to centrally configure and automatically enforce role-based policies across wired and wireless networks.

Client steering

Steers traffic from the noisy 2.4 GHz band to the preferred 5 GHz or 6 GHz band based on device capabilities and dynamically steers traffic to load balance APs.
