The AP230 Enterprise access points set a new price / performance standard for 802.11ac APs.
By combining the latest in 3x3, 3-stream 802.11ac Gigabit Wi-Fi technology and advanced security and mobility management together into an economical package it allows you to deploy 802.11ac into every part of the network infrastructure – from Corp HQ to remote branches and outlets to every campus and classroom.
The AP230 provides high-performance aggregate data rates up to 1300 Mbps in 5-GHz band. It supports dual concurrent 2.4Ghz 802.11n/g/b with Turbo-QAM™ and 5Ghz 802.11ac/n/a radios which can support legacy 802.11a, b, g and n clients and interoperate with the rest of the Aerohive Cooperative Control devices to provide a seamless enterprise-class experience for all connected users.
Key Features and Benefits
Engineered for Industry-leading price/performance
The challenges of pervasive mobility – high performance Wi-Fi, high client density, industry and government regulations, and advanced applications - are no longer the exclusive domain of the large enterprise. Engineered with security features to meet regulations like Payment Card Industry (PCI 3.0) and HIPAA and Wi-Fi technology to address high-density environments, like 1:1 computing classrooms and online testing initiatives, the AP230 incorporates the full advanced software features required by every organization. The AP230 also incorporates enough processing horsepower to run sophisticated Application Visibility and Control functionality that allows for tracking of 700 application signatures and even enables custom application signature tracking all at Gigabit data rates. Now policies can be set on any application fingerprint; even proprietary enterprise applications.
High Density Environments with Future-proof deployment
The latest release of HiveOS combined with the AP230 allows an Aerohive-based network to create a ‘plug-n-play’ solution that addresses high-density, high-performance requirements while laying the ground work for a phased approach to upgrading your network to 802.11ac and without requiring you to upgrade your existing POE infrastructure. Our advancements in energy efficiency allow the AP230 to provide improved client capacity and full 3-stream 802.11ac performance while using existing POE infrastructure. As more APs are added to the network, HiveOS simply recognizes and automatically includes them in the network. Improvements to the radio management software account for the new 802.11ac radios automatically and allow for existing and new APs to coexist flawlessly.
BYOD and Advanced Client Services
When combined with Aerohive’s Cloud Services Platform and Mobility Suite, the AP230 even packs enough power to fully control your BYOD environment. The Aerohive Mobility Suite featuring Client Management and ID Manager applications leverages Aerohive’s HiveOS that runs on the AP230 and extends management and control over the complete spectrum of clients, from transient guests to company-issued devices. By combining simplified onboarding, management, and troubleshooting with context-based visibility, policies, and enforcement for all connected clients, Aerohive can provide a personalized mobile experience for every user and device on the network.
