- Incredible efficiency
The 560 series access points (APs) are designed to optimize user experience by maximizing Wi-Fi efficiency and dramatically reducing airtime contention between clients.
- Advantages of OFDMA
OFDMA capability allows Aruba APs to handle multiple Wi-Fi 6 capable clients on each channel simultaneously, regardless of device or traffic type. Channel utilization is optimized by handling each transaction via smaller sub-carriers or resource units (RUs), which means that clients are sharing a channel yet not competing for airtime and bandwidth.
- Aruba Air Slice for extended OFDMA assurance
Initially, APs in controller-less mode (Instant) can provide SLA-grade performance by allocating radio resources, such as time, frequency, and spatial streams, to specific traffic types. By combining Aruba's Policy Enforcement Firewall (PEF) and Layer 7 deep packet inspection (DPI) to identify user roles and applications, the APs will dynamically allocate the bandwidth needed. Non-Wi-Fi 6 clients can also benefit. For APs, Air Slice uses Aruba Central for management. Controller-based APs will be supported in a future software release.
- Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO)
560 series APs support downlink MU-MIMO just like Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac Wave 2) APs. The added benefit is the ability to multiply the number of clients that can now send traffic, thus optimizing client-to-AP spatial stream diversity.
- Wi-Fi 6 and MU-MIMO-aware client optimization
Aruba's patented AI-powered ClientMatch technology eliminates sticky client issues by placing Wi-Fi 6 capable devices on the best available AP. Session metrics are used to steer mobile devices to the best AP based on available bandwidth, types of applications being used and traffic type - even as users roam.
- Aruba Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC)
The ACC feature uses built-in filtering to automatically minimize the impact of interference from cellular networks, distributed antenna systems (DAS), and commercial small cell or femtocell equipment.
- Intelligent Power Monitoring (IPM)
Aruba APs continuously monitor and report hardware energy consumption. They can also be configured to enable or disable capabilities based on available PoE power - ideal when wired switches have exhausted their power budget.
- IoT platform capabilities
Like all Aruba Wi-Fi 6 APs, the 560 series includes an integrated Bluetooth 5 and 802.15.4 radio (for Zigbee support) to simplify deploying and managing IoT-based location services, asset tracking services, security solutions and IoT sensors. This allows organizations to leverage the 560 series as an IoT platform, which eliminates the need for an overlay infrastructure and additional IT resources.
- Target Wake Time (TWT)
Ideal for IoTs that communicate infrequently, TWT establishes a schedule for when clients need to communicate with an AP. This helps improve client power savings and reduces airtime contention with other clients.
Weatherproof and temperature hardened, Aruba 560 series access points deliver cost-effective Wi-Fi 6 wireless connectivity in outdoor and environmentally challenging locations.
Purpose-built to survive in the harshest outdoor environments, 560 series can withstand exposure to extreme high and low temperatures, persistent moisture and precipitation, and are fully sealed to keep out airborne contaminants. All electrical interfaces include industrial strength surge protection.
Aruba Wi-Fi 6 access points provide high-performance connectivity for any organization experiencing growing numbers of IoT and mobility requirements. With maximum aggregate on air data rate of 1.49 Gbps (HE80/HE20), they deliver the speed and reliability needed for most environments.
The Aruba advanced ClientMatch technology and an integrated Bluetooth beacon can help enable Aruba location services.
