“We congratulate Aruba for achieving product certification of its enterprise APs through the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED ac program,” said Kelly Davis-Felner, marketing and program management director of Wi-Fi Alliance. “Wi-Fi is becoming an increasingly important part of enterprise networks. Wi-Fi CERTIFIED devices provide a seal of approval for interoperability and offer the security and performance that network managers have come to expect.”Aruba’s 802.11ac Solution: Purpose-built for the Next Generation of .11ac Networks Unlike modular 802.11ac APs, the Aruba 220 Series APs are purpose-built for the new Wi-Fi standard, resulting in time and cost-savings for customers. First, the Aruba 220 Series APs draw much less power than modular APs and include a power-efficient mode so that enterprises can operate the APs at lower speeds with available 802.3af PoE power. Second, the 220 Series APs can be deployed with existing switch infrastructure, saving enterprises the cost of a complete network overhaul. Finally, the 220 Series APs utilize Aruba’s unique, patented ClientMatch technology, allowing enterprises to solve the problem of “sticky clients”. ClientMatch gathers data that intelligently steers devices to the best possible AP, ensuring that every device benefits from the promise of 802.11ac’s increased speed and capacity. Aruba’s AP-220 Series access points, along with Aruba’s ClientMatch technology began shipping in June 2013 and can be used with the complete portfolio of Aruba mobility controllers.
