Aruba Networks’ 802.11ac solution launched in India

Aruba Networks has launched its 802.11ac solution in India.

The solution offers gigabit Wi-Fi, Aruba Networks said on Friday.

The newly introduced Aruba 220 Series Access Points (APs), combined with Aruba’s new ClientMatch technology, address the critical needs of enterprises creating a next-generation workplace.

In competitive testing, an Aruba WLAN with ClientMatch delivered up to 94 percent better device performance than a Cisco WLAN.

By combining Aruba 220 SeriesAPs, ClientMatch technology and Aruba’s application visibility for real-time UCC applications like Microsoft Lync, enterprises can right size their networks by eliminating unused desk phones and any free access network ports on each desk. The result is a next-generation workplace that meets end user needs and can reduce IT costs by as much as 76 percent.

The Aruba 220 Series APs are purpose-built for 802.11ac, resulting in time and cost savings for enterprises.

Unlike modular 802.11ac APs, the Aruba 220 Series access points draw much less power, and also feature a power-efficient mode, so that enterprises can operate the APs at lower speeds with available 802.3af PoE power.

Power-efficient mode gives enterprises the option to delay replacing their existing switch infrastructure and avoid the expensive labor costs associated with closet upgrades during WLAN design and deployment.

With speeds of up to 1.75 Gbps (and up to 1.9 Gbps for devices with Broadcom’s TurboQAM technology), the 220 Series can support a higher density of devices, solving the capacity issues confronting enterprise IT.

The 220 Series supports link aggregation on two gigabit Ethernet ports to realize maximum speeds on both the 5GHz and 2.4GHz bands and deliver true gigabit speeds.

In addition, the 220 Series APs are smaller than other 802.11ac access points, making them faster and easier to install, and they utilize two radios, rather than three, making them less expensive.
