Features and Benefits:
MORE CAPACITY AND WIDER CHANNELS
The 630 Series APs are designed to take advantage of the 6 GHz band, which translates into far greater speeds, wider channels for multi-gigabit traffic, and less interference. It delivers 3.9 Gbps maximum aggregate data rates Tri-radio, 2x2:2 MIMO in all three bands (3.9 Gbps aggregate peak).
|Band||Channel bandwidth||Peak datarate|
|6 GHz||160 MHz||2.4 Gbps|
|5 GHz||80 MHz||1.2 Gbps|
|2.4 GHz||20 MHz||287 Mbps|
Advantages of 6GHz
Wi-Fi 6E provides up to 1200 MHz in the 6 GHz band for higher throughput and improved application performance. With up to seven 160 MHz channels, Wi-Fi 6E can better support low-latency, bandwidth hungry applications like high-definition video and artificial reality/virtual reality applications. Only Wi-Fi 6E capable devices can use the 6 GHz band so there is no interference or slowdowns due to legacy devices.
Device class support
The 630 Series APs are part of the low power indoor (LPI) device class. This fixed indoor-only class uses lower power levels and does not require an Automated Frequency Coordination service (AFC) to manage incumbent outdoor services which is required for standard class APs.
630 Series Access Points include Aruba’s ultra tri-band filtering, which enables enterprises to take advantage of the high end of 5 GHz with the lower end of 6 GHz without experiencing interference. Since there is only 50 MHz between 5 GHz and the 6 GHz, without advanced filtering, enterprises would likely experience problems between the bands and would therefore be limited in the number of channels available. By applying advanced filtering capabilities, enterprises can take full use of available spectrum without creating coverage gaps or islands.
The Series 630 APs provide high availability with two HPE Smart Rate ethernet ports for hitless failover for both data and power. Configurable to 1 or 2.5 Gbps, these dual ports provide business continuity for mission critical applications.
While the need for more Wi-Fi capacity is recognized across the globe, countries are approaching 6 GHz differently. The 630 Series APs are set up to automatically update regulatory rules once 6E regulations have been approved and certified.
EXTEND THE BENEFITS OF WI-FI 6
The 630 Series APs are based on the 802.11ax standard, which means that all its efficiency and security enhancements are also available on the 6 GHz band. Wi-Fi 6 features such as Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA), BSS coloring etc. are fully supported on the Aruba Wi-Fi 6E access points as well.
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.
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. Client Match steers traffic from the noisy 2.4 GHz band to the preferred 5 GHz or 6 GHz band depending on client capabilities. 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 organization to automate network optimization using machine learning. AirMatch provides dynamic bandwidth adjustments to support changing device density, 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.
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.
Intelligent Power Monitoring (IPM)
For better insights into energy consumption, Aruba APs continuously monitor and report hardware energy usage. Unlike other vendor’s access points, Aruba APs can also be configured to enable or disable capabilities based on available PoE power – ideal when wired switches have exhausted their power budget. Enterprises can deploy Wi-Fi 6E APs and update switching and power at a later if needed based on their actual usage.
APS AS AN IOT PLATFORM
The 630 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. There is also a USB-port extension to provide IoT connectivity to a wider range of devices. These IoT capabilities allows organizations to leverage the Aruba APs as an IoT platform, which eliminates the need for an overlay infrastructure and additional IT resources and can accelerate IoT initiatives.
In addition, Target Wake Time (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, which is ideal for IoT.
ARUBA SECURE INFRASTRUCTURE
The Aruba 630 Series includes build-security capabilities such as:
WPA3 and Enhanced Open
Support for stronger encryption and authentication is provided via the latest version of WPA for enterpriseprotected networks. Enhanced Open offers seamless new protection for users connecting to open networks where each session is automatically encrypted to protect user passwords and data on guest networks.
MPSK enables simpler passkey management for WPA2 devices – should the Wi-Fi password on one device or device type change, no additional changes are needed for other devices. This capability requires 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 WLANs. Dynamic Segmentation eliminates the time consuming and error-prone task of managing complex and static VLANs, ACLs, and subnets by dynamically assigning policies and keeping traffic secure and separated.
SEAMLESS HANDOFFS TO CELLULAR
Built on the technical foundations of Passpoint® and Wi-Fi Calling, Air Pass creates a roaming network across the Aruba enterprise customer footprint, extending cellular coverage and enhancing the visitor and subscriber experience to deliver a great experience for your guests while reducing costs and management overhead for DAS.
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 in branch offices and for remote work.
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.
