Wi-Fi 7 APs that do more

Deliver more performance, more security, and more IoT connectivity for more immersive, real-time wireless experiences.

Improved performance and capacity

Improved performance and capacity

The 730 Series APs provide more Wi-Fi 7 performance with up to 30% more 6 GHz band capacity using patented ultra tri-band filtering to eliminate interference. Flexible radios can be customized for dual 5 GHz or dual 6 GHz to better reflect your client ecosystem. Tri-band coverage delivers up to 9.0 Gbps max aggregate data rate (capable of up to 14.4 Gbps max aggregate data rate using dual 6 GHz radio mode1).

1 Feature available in future software release.

Enhanced security

Enhanced security

The 730 Series APs, based on AOS-10, build on existing Wi-Fi security capabilities to deliver more edge security. HPE Aruba Networking Central’s Client Insights uses AI and machine learning to identify and classify 99% of known clients for better visibility and control. Dynamic Segmentation automates role-based access across wired and wireless, and new MACsec support1 extends wired encryption from switch to AP.
