The multifunction AP-92 and AP-93 are entry-level indoor 802.11n access points (APs) designed for low-density deployments in offices, hospitals, schools and retail stores.
These compact, high-speed APs deliver wire-like performance at data rates up to 300 Mbps. The AP-92 features a single 2×2 MIMO dual-band 2.4-GHz/5-GHz radio with external antennas while the AP-93 features the same radio with internal antennas. Both APs are built to provide years of trouble-free operation and are backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
Working with Aruba’s line of centralized Mobility Controllers, the AP-92 and AP-93 deliver 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-92 and AP-93 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-92 and AP-93 each feature a 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet interface and can operate from standard 802.3af power-over-Ethernet (PoE) sources or a 12-volt DC power supply.
