With unmatched deployment flexibility, the RAP-100 series can operate in Aruba Instant™ mode controlled by the AirWave™ management platform or in controller-managed mode where all network services are centralized by Aruba Mobility Controllers.
In Aruba Instant mode, traffic is locally bridged but it still provides the flexibility of secure tunneling to Mobility Controllers. To eliminate client stickiness, the RAP-100 series includes integrated ClientMatch™ technology, which continuously gathers session performance metrics and uses this data to every device to the best AP and radio on the WLAN, even while users roam and RF conditions change.
The RAP-100 series also offers a wide range of enterprise-class features, including role-based network access, policy-based forwarding, and Adaptive Radio Management™ (ARM), which optimizes Wi-Fi client performance and ensures that Aruba APs stay clear of interference.
At locations that require greater coverage, the RAP-100 can join an Aruba Instant WLAN cluster. Simply install additional RAP-100s or any Aruba Instant AP and the entire cluster is managed as one. If one Aruba Instant AP fails, another AP automatically takes over with no disruption.
When operating in Aruba Instant mode, the cloud-based Aruba Activate™ service dramatically reduces RAP-100 series deployment time by performing zero-touch provisioning, firmware upgrades and inventory management. With Aruba Activate, RAP-100s are factory-shipped to remote deployment sites and obtain their configurations automatically when powered up.
