The entry-level Aruba 300 Series Wave 2 access points deliver high performance and superb user experience for medium density environments. Featuring 3x3:3SS MU-MIMO capability, Aruba advanced ClientMatch radio management, and integrated Aruba Beacons, the 300 Series enables an all wireless digital work environment in a costeffective manner.
With a maximum concurrent data rate of 1,300 Mbps in the 5GHz band and 400 Mbps in the 2.4GHz band (for an aggregate peak data rate of 1.7Gbps), the entry-level 300 Series brings an always-on wireless network experience with the performance required for enterprises. It is ideal for costsensitive medium density environments across verticals.
The high performance 802.11ac 300 Series supports multiuser MIMO (MU-MIMO) and 3 spatial streams (3SS). It provides simultaneous data transmission to multiple devices (up to two), maximizing data throughput and improving network efficiency.
The 300 Series includes the enhanced ClientMatch technology that extends the client steering technology with MU-MIMO client awareness. It automatically identifies MU-MIMO capable mobile devices and steers those devices to the closest MU-MIMO capable Aruba access point. By grouping MU-MIMO capable mobile devices together, the network starts taking advantage of the simultaneous transmission to these devices, increasing its overall capacity. These dynamic roaming policies that are based on device types, help customers achieve the best WLAN performance in a mixed device environment during the technology transition period.
The 300 Series also has an integrated Bluetooth Aruba Beacon that simplifies the remote management of a network of largescale battery-powered Aruba Beacons while also providing advanced location and indoor wayfinding, and proximity-based push notification capabilities. It enables businesses to leverage ARUBA 300 SERIES ACCESS POINTS Entry-level 802.11ac Wave 2 Access Points mobility context to develop applications that will deliver an enhanced user experience and increase the value of the wireless network for organizations.
The Aruba 300 Series APs offer a choice of operating modes to meet your unique management and deployment requirements.
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, the Instant APs are factory-shipped to any site and configure themselves when powered up.
