Features and Benefits:
WI-FI 6 BENEFITS
The 580EX Series APs are based on the Wi-Fi 6/802.11ax standard, which means that Wi-Fi 6 features such as Uplink and Downlink Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA), BSS coloring, Downlink Multi-User MIMO (MUMIMO), and cellular co-location are fully supported making it more efficient and secure.
Advantages of OFDMA
This capability allows Aruba’s APs to handle multiple 802.11ax 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 and not competing for airtime and bandwidth.
Bi-directional Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO)
Similar to downlink MU-MIMO in Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac Wave 2), Aruba 580EX Series APs can simultaneously connect clients using downlink – and now – uplink spatial streams. 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.
Aruba’s patented AI-powered ClientMatch technology eliminates sticky client issues by steering a client to the AP where it receives the best radio signal. ClientMatch also dynamically steers traffic to load balance APs to improve the user experience.
Automated Wi-Fi radio frequency management
To optimize the user experience and provide greater stability, Aruba AirMatch allows organizations to automate network optimization using machine learning. AirMatch provides dynamic bandwidth adjustments to support changing device density and enhanced roaming using an even distribution of Effective Isotropic Radiated Power (EIRP) to radios, and real-time channel assignments to mitigate co-channel interference.
With Air Slice, organizations can provide application assurance to their users that goes beyond the traditional capabilities of airtime fairness. After the SLAs are configured, Air Slice monitors network usage, automatically allocates radio resources, and dynamically adjusts radio resources as new users connect and applications sessions begin or end.
Intelligent Power Monitoring (IPM)
Aruba 580EX Series APs continuously monitor and report hardware energy consumption and temperature. APs can be configured to enable or disable capabilities based on the available PoE power – ideal when wired switches have exhausted their power budget. Additionally, with IPM, if the AP gets too close to the maximum temperature limit, it can disable features to prevent overheating.
Aruba Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC)
Unique to Aruba, Advanced Cellular Coexistence 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.
High power Bluetooth and Zigbee
The Aruba 580EX Series is the first Aruba access point to feature a high-powered Bluetooth and 802.15.4/Zigbee radio, ensuring maximum range and performance for IoT applications. Built in Bluetooth and Zigbee capabilities simplifies deploying and managing IoT-based location services, asset tracking services, security solutions and IoT sensors and allows organizations to leverage the Aruba 580EX Series as an IoT platform. There is no need for an overlay infrastructure or additional IT resources.
Advanced IoT coexistence (AIC)
Built-in filtering allows Wi-Fi and Bluetooth/Zigbee radios to operate at maximum capacity without the impact of interference.
Target Wake Time (TWT)
Ideal for IoT solutions that communicate infrequently, this Wi-Fi 6 capability allows IoT devices to use 802.11ax protocol. TWT coordinates with client IoT devices to allow them to sleep for extended periods and use shorter wake times to communicate before returning to sleep. This substantially extends the useful operating life of Wi-Fi 6 based, batterypowered sensors.
ARUBA SECURE INFRASTRUCTURE
The Aruba 580EX Series is an integral part of Aruba’s SASE and zero trust security approach to help protect user authentication and wireless traffic. Select capabilities include:
WPA3 and Enhanced Open
With the introduction of WPA3 and Enhanced Open, a Wi-Fi 6 certified client will never send unencrypted traffic over the air. Even with an open authenticated network, Enhanced Open still provides strong encryption over the air. In all Wi-Fi 6 user sessions, each user is uniquely encrypted and if they disconnect and reconnect, the encryption changes from session to session.
MPSK enables simpler passkey management for WPA2 devices – should the Wi-Fi password on one device change, no additional changes are needed for other devices. This feature is enabled when networks are deployed with ClearPass Policy Manager.
SIMPLE AND SECURE ACCESS
To improve security and ease of management, IT can centrally configure and automatically enforce role-based policies that define proper access privileges for employees, guests, contractors, and other user groups – no matter where users connect on wired and wireless networks. Dynamic Segmentation eliminates the time consuming and errorprone task of managing complex and static VLANs, ACLs, and subnets by dynamically assigning policies and keeping traffic secure and separated.
FLEXIBLE OPERATION AND MANAGEMENT
Our unified APs can operate as standalone access points or with a gateway for greater scalability, security, and manageability. APs can be deployed using zero touch provisioning – without on-site technical expertise – for ease of implementation. Aruba APs can be managed using cloud-based or on premises solutions for any campus, branch, or remote work environment. As the management and orchestration console for Aruba ESP (Edge Services Platform), Aruba Central provides a single pane of glass for overseeing every aspect of wired and wireless LANs, WANs, and VPNs. AI-powered analytics, end-to-end orchestration and automation, and advanced security features are built natively into the solution.
