Aruba 110 Series Access Points
High-performance 802.11n Wi-Fi
High-performance 802.11n access points provide maximum wireless LAN coverage while minimizing RF interference from LTE cellular networks.
These high-performance 802.11n APs deliver wireless data rates up to 450 Mbps per radio and employ three spatial streams to support 50% more throughput and mobile devices than previous-generation APs.
The AP-115 and IAP-115 APs feature a 2.4-GHz and a 5-GHz radio, each with 3×3:3 MIMO and three integrated omni-directional downtilt antennas. The AP-114 and IAP-114 models feature the same radios with three combined and diplexed external antenna connectors.
Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC)
The 110 series Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC) feature enables Aruba 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 110 series features patented ClientMatch™ technology, which continuously gathers session performance metrics from mobile devices.
If a mobile device moves out of range of an AP or if RF interference impedes performance, ClientMatch automatically steers the device to a better AP.
Quality of service for Lync
The 110 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.
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.
The 110 series 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.
Choose your operating mode
The 110 series of APs offers a choice of operating modes to meet your unique management and deployment requirements.
- Controller-managed mode. When managed by Aruba Mobility Controllers, 110 series APs offer centralized configuration, data encryption, policy enforcement and network services, as well as distributed and centralized traffic forwarding. Please refer to the Aruba Mobility Controller data sheets for more details.
- Aruba Instant™ mode. In Aruba Instant mode, a single AP automatically distributes the network configuration to other Instant Aps in the WLAN. Simply power-up on Instant AP, configure it over the air, and plug in the other Aps—the entire process takes about five minutes.
For large installations across multiple sites, the Aruba Activate™ service significantly reduces deployment time by automating device provisioning, firmware upgrades, and inventory management. With Aruba Activate, Instant APs are factory-shipped to any site and configure themselves when powered up.
If WLAN and network requirements change, a built-in migration path allows 110 series Instant APs to become part of a WLAN that is centrally managed by a Mobility Controller.
