The multifunctional and affordable AP-205H access point (AP) combines high-performance wireless mobility with wired Gigabit Ethernet access in a surprisingly compact device. This compact and cost-effective dual-radio AP easily mounts to a standard data wall-box and uses the existing structured cabling system to provide secure wired and wireless network access in dormitories, classrooms, hotels, medical clinics and multitenant environments. In addition, using a unique mount kit accessory, the AP-205H can easily be converted to a desk mounted AP to provide the same benefits for branch offices and teleworkers. Capable of delivering high-performance Wi-Fi services to multiple rooms, the 205H simplifies RF coverage planning and reduces WLAN deployment costs. The AP-205H is built to provide years of trouble-free operation and is backed by Aruba’s limited lifetime warranty. The 205H delivers wireless data rates of up to 867 Mbps to 5-GHz devices with 802.11ac technology leveraging two spatial MIMO streams while simultaneously supporting 2.4-GHz 802.11n clients with data rates of up to 400 Mbps. The integrated antennas of the 205H are optimized for the deployments with the AP mounted vertically on either a wall or desk. The antenna patterns are slightly directional, focusing RF energy to and from the area facing the front of the AP. Three local Gigabit Ethernet ports are available to securely attach wired devices to your network. One of these ports is also capable of supplying PoE power to the attached device. The 205H itself receives power from either an AC-to-DC adapter accessory or from the switch it attaches to, using PoE via the uplink Gigabit Ethernet port.
