If you need a robust all-weather solution for outdoor high-speed WiFi with exceptional speeds and easy configuration, the Aruba AP-270 offers several options to meet your needs. The AP-270 features operating temperatures from -40° C to +65° C (-40° F to +150°F), IP66 or IP67 chassis ratings, and wind survivability up to 165mph. Whether you need a short-term easily-deployed AP for special outdoor events, or a permanent outdoor fixture that could survive a hurricane, the AP-270 has you covered. There are three model types of AP-270, all featuring dual-radio 2.4ghz and 5ghz broadcasts, with 3x3 MIMO compatibility, with maximum theoretical speeds of 1.3gbps. The models vary depending on the type of antenna:
- AP-274: Three external antenna connectors (antennas sold separately)
- AP-275: Three internal omni-directional antennas
- AP-277: Three internal 80º H x 80º V beamwidth directional antennas
Additionally, you can choose between controlled units which are configure via the robust ArubaOS GUI, which links all your Aruba hardware, or Instant Access Point controller-less models. The IAP models feature mesh networking, and are perfect for temporary deployments. You configure one unit over-the-air, then it broadcasts the configuration to all other units. An entire outdoor event WiFi could be configured in roughly five minutes with an IAP-270 model.
All models feature smart adaptive broadcast technology, allowing them to shape their radio spectrum usage based on the local radio environment - a must when providing WiFi to a crowd using cellphones. Proprietary ClientMatch technology simplifies roaming, allowing guests and visitors to move freely between AP-270 units without loss of speed or coverage.
Few outdoor APs combine so many features and configuration options, while remaining exceptionally easy to deploy, configure, and use. Combined with the AP-270's extreme survivability, and you have a perfect all-purpose outdoor WiFi solution. To learn more, contact Hummingbird Networks for a full consultation.
