Ultra-fast 320 series 802.11ac Wave 2 APs offer the highest performance in high-density environments and can be managed by a Mobility Controller or deployed in controllerless Aruba Instant mode.
These Wave 2 access points deliver multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) aware ClientMatch to boost network efficiency and support the growing device density demands on your network.
Starting with the 320 series, Aruba access points have an integrated BLE Beacon to remotely manage battery-powered Aruba Beacons. Also for improved network simplicity and security, Dynamic Segmentation automatically enforces real-time device-level access policies on Aruba wired and wireless networks.
Boost network efficiency
ClientMatch unleashes MU-MIMO
Integrated Bluetooth Beacon
|With multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO), you can transmit to multiple Wave 2 clients from an AP, at the same time.||
Aruba ClientMatch software groups Wave 2 clients together, enabling MU-MIMO. That means a faster, more efficient network.
