Upgrade to 802.11n
Aruba 802.11n wireless LANs accelerate the performance of enterprise applications on smartphones and tablets.
Why do I need 802.11n?
Today’s enterprise business applications require the increased performance and reliability of 802.11n to accommodate the massive influx of smartphones and tablets. These mobile devices do not have wired Ethernet ports, and Wi-Fi is the only way to connect these devices to the enterprise network.
What’s so great about 802.11n?
- It’s faster. 802.11n technology delivers up to 300 Mbps of link speed for Wi-Fi radios compared to 54 Mbps with legacy 802.11a/b/g. This means increased bandwidth for end user and enterprise business applications.
- It supports more users. 802.11n lets users get the job done faster and at increased speeds. As a result, IT can support increased densities of enterprise wireless users with smartphones and tablets without worrying about network capacity.
- It’s more reliable. 802.11n uses multiple antennas to transmit and receive signals, while the old 802.11a/b/g uses only one to transmit and one antenna to receive. 802.11n boosts the signal quality and reliability on both ends of the Wi-Fi connection, which accelerates the performance of enterprise business applications.
What’s so great about Aruba’s 802.11n?
- Highest performance. Aruba’sAdaptive Radio Management™ (ARM) capability offers spectrum load balancing, band-steering, airtime fairness, and guarantees bandwidth availability for mobile devices no matter where they roam.
- Lowest total cost of ownership. Aruba 802.11n access points cost less than most 802.11a/b/g access points. Customers can migrate to high-performance 802.11n now with minimal capital expense, and rightsize their network infrastructure in the process.
- Most extensive 802.11n portfolio. Aruba offers single- and dual-radio indoor and outdoor 802.11n access points with external or integrated antennas. This enables IT to easily implement 802.11n at many diverse locations throughout the enterprise.
- Richest feature platform. Aruba 802.11n access points integrate a staggering array of high-end functions, including spectrum analysis, advanced wireless intrusion protection, secure enterprise mesh, and distributed and centralized traffic forwarding – without requiring a separate set of access points or any additional hardware or management infrastructure.
- Standards based. Aruba 802.11n access points are compatible with the IEEE 802.11n standard. The 802.11n standard is the cornerstone of innovation for leading technologies such as Aruba’s ARM, which automatically and dynamically maximizes wireless LAN performance.
