Thermal Shutdown Support in Access Points

Starting from ArubaOS, several Aruba AP models are enabled with thermal shutdown feature. The APs are equipped with one or more internal temperature sensors that initiate a shutdown when the AP’s internal temperature crosses a set threshold. The AP then disconnects from the controller and operates in a low-power mode, allowing it to cool down. Once the AP reaches a normal operating temperature, it reconnects to the controller. This process of rebootstrap and reconnection is carried out for 5 times, until the connection is restored. If the connection between the AP and the controller still does not secure, the AP remains in the shutdown state till it is manually turned on.

Starting from ArubaOS, thermal shutdown for mesh mode APs is supported.
