Overview:

The affordable mid-range Aruba 207 Series access point delivers high performance 802.11ac for medium density enterprise environments. With the integrated BLE and supporting 802.3af power, the Aruba 207 Series AP enables enterprises to improve their work efficiency and productivity with the lowest TCO.

The compact Aruba 207 Series AP delivers a maximum concurrent data rate of 867 Mbps in the 5GHz band and 400 Mbps in the 2.4GHz band (for an aggregate peak data rate of 1.3Gbps). Featuring 2x2:2SS, and increased operating temperature, the 207 AP is designed for medium device density environments, such as schools, retail branches, warehouses, hotels and enterprise offices, where the environment is cost sensitive.

With the integrated Bluetooth Aruba Beacon, the 207 Series provides advanced location and indoor wayfinding, and proximity-based push notification services while simplifying the remote management of battery-powered Aruba Beacons. It enables businesses to leverage mobility context to develop applications that will deliver an enhanced user experience and increase the value of the wireless network for organizations.

Choose your operating mode

Aruba 207 Series APs offer a choice of operating modes to meet your unique management and deployment requirements.

  • Controller-managed mode – When managed by Aruba Mobility Controllers, Aruba 207 Series APs offer centralized configuration, data encryption, policy enforcement and network services, as well as distributed and centralized traffic forwarding.
  • 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 one Instant AP, configure it over the air, and plug in the other APs – the entire process takes about five minutes. If WLAN requirements change, a built-in migration path allows 207 Series Instant APs to become part of a WLAN that is managed by a Mobility Controller.
  • Remote AP (RAP) for branch deployments.
  • Air monitor (AM) for wireless IDS, rogue detection and containment.
  • Spectrum analyzer, dedicated or hybrid, for identifying sources of RF interference.
  • Secure enterprise mesh.

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 factoryshipped to any site and configure themselves when powered up.
