If you are looking for an all-in-one 802.11ac Wave 2 WiFi access point which offers some of the fastest speeds currently available anywhere, alongside industry-leading flexibility in deployment, then you need the Aruba AP-345.
Thanks to the inclusion of a second 5ghz radio, as well as a 802.3bz compliant HPE SmartRate multi-gig Ethernet port, the AP-345 can potentially reach a max throughput of 4.3Gbps. Those are speeds beyond what most companies get from their wired network, although it does require sufficient network backbone as well as user-side devices capable of 802.11ac Wave 2 speeds. Fortunately, the AP-345 can detect such devices and segregates them onto a dedicated high-speed radio, so they can enjoy cutting-edge speeds while leaving room for slower devices to use the slower radios.
Note: The AP-345 utilizes internal omnidirectional antennas. If you'd prefer to have these same speeds, but with external antennas for better control over your WiFi coverage area, the AP-344 model variation features eight RP-SMA external antenna connectors.
The AP-345 also includes an integrated Bluetooth radio, for Bluetooth beacon support - allowing you to track or directly message users. Additionally, some or all of the internal radios can be utilized as spectrum analysis and wireless intrusion detection systems. The AP-345 is legitimately feature-packed.
Further, Aruba has placed a focus on repurpose-ability. Your AP-345 can be configured to work as part of a centrally-controlled network, or as a standalone "Instant Access Point," or be remotely controlled and accessed via VPN. In addition, it possesses the capability to work as part of an ad-hoc mesh network, or could be configured to act as a dedicated RF surveillance appliance.
