Aruba 175 Series Outdoor Access Points Features
Multifunctional 175 series outdoor wireless access points (APs) deliver enterprise-grade Wi-Fi to high-density client environments.
These high-performance 802.11n outdoor APs deliver wireless data rates up to 300 Mbps per radio and ensure peak performance by utilizing channel bonding, block acknowledgement and MIMO radios. Advanced antenna technology also increases RF signal range and reliability.
Able to survive in harsh outdoor environments, 175 series APs withstand exposure to high and low temperatures, persistent moisture and precipitation, and are fully sealed to keep out airborne contaminants. All electrical interfaces include industrial-strength surge protection.
The 175 series outdoor APs feature two dual-band 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radios with 2×2 MIMO and four external antenna connectors.
Choose your operating mode
The 175 series of outdoor APs offers a choice of operating modes to meet your unique management and deployment requirements.
- Controller-managed mode.When managed by Aruba Mobility Controllers, 175 series APs offer centralized configuration, data encryption, policy enforcement and network services, as well as distributed and centralized traffic forwarding. Please refer to the Aruba Mobility Controller data sheets for more details.
- Aruba Instant™ mode.In Aruba Instant mode, a single AP is dynamically elected the Virtual Controller, which automatically distributes the network configuration to other Instant APs in the WLAN. Simply power-up one Instant AP, configure it over the air, and plug in the other APs – the entire process takes about five minutes.
For large installations across multiple sites, the Aruba Activate™ service significantly reduces deployment time by automating device provisioning, firmware upgrades, and inventory management. With Aruba Activate, Instant APs are factory-shipped to any site and configure themselves when powered up.
