The value-priced indoor 802.11n dual-radio, dual-band 105 access point is designed for high-density deployments in offices, hospitals, schools and retail stores.
The multifunction AP-105 is an affordable indoor 802.11n access point (AP) designed for high-density deployments in offices, hospitals, schools and retail stores. The compact, high-speed AP-105 delivers wire-like performance at data rates up to 300 Mbps per radio.
The AP-105 features two 2×2 MIMO dual-band 2.4-GHz/5-GHz radios with two internal omni-directional antennas. With ceiling and wall-mounting options, the AP-105 is built to provide years of trouble-free operation and is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
Working with Aruba’s line of centralized Mobility Controllers, the AP-105 delivers secure, high-speed network services that move users to a “wireless where possible, wired where necessary” network access model. The network can then be rightsized by eliminating unused Ethernet switch ports and thereby reducing operating costs.
802.11n enables the use of wireless as a primary connection with speed and reliability comparable to a wired LAN. It also increases performance by utilizing techniques such as channel bonding, block acknowledgement and MIMO radios. Advanced antenna technology also increases range and reliability.
The key to ensuring wire-like performance and reliability is Aruba’s unique Adaptive Radio Management and spectrum analysis* capabilities, which manage the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radio bands to deliver maximum client performance while mitigating any RF interference.
The multifunction AP-105 can be configured through the Mobility Controller to provide WLAN access with part-time air monitoring, dedicated air monitoring for wireless IPS and spectrum analysis, Remote AP (RAP) functionality or secure enterprise mesh.. The AP-105 features a 100/1000BASE-T Ethernet interface and can operate from standard 802.3af power-over-Ethernet (PoE) sources or a 12-volt DC power supply.
