Multifunctional and affordable Aruba 103 series wireless access points (APs) maximize mobile device performance in medium-density Wi-Fi environments while minimizing interference from cellular networks.
These compact and cost-effective APs deliver wireless data rates up to 300 Mbps per radio employing 802.11n technology with two spatial MIMO streams. The AP-103 and Instant IAP-103 models feature a 2.4-GHz and a 5-GHz radio, each with 2x2:2 MIMO and two integrated dual-band omni-directional downtilt antennas.
Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC)
Aruba’s Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC) feature enables WLANs to perform at peak efficiency by minimizing interference from 3G/4G LTE networks, distributed antenna systems and commercial small cell/femtocell equipment.
Wi-Fi client optimization
To eliminate sticky client behavior while users roam, the Aruba 103 series APs feature Aruba’s patented ClientMatch™ technology, which continuously gathers session performance metrics from mobile devices. If a mobile device moves away from an AP or if RF interference impedes performance, ClientMatch automatically steers the device to a better AP.
Best-in-class RF management
All Aruba APs include Adaptive Radio Management™ technology, which is essential to creating the most reliable, high-performance WLANs. ARM™ manages the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radio bands to optimize Wi-Fi client performance and ensures that APs stay clear of RF interference.
Aruba 103 series APs can be configured to provide part-time or dedicated air monitoring for spectrum analysis and wireless intrusion protection, VPN tunnels to extend remote locations to corporate resources, and wireless mesh connections where Ethernet drops are not available.
Quality of service for Lync
Aruba 103 series APs additionally support priority handling and policy enforcement for individual Microsoft Lync media on the same device, including encrypted videoconferencing, voice, chat and desktop sharing.
