The multifunctional and affordable AP-205H access point (AP) combines high-performance wireless mobility with wired Gigabit Ethernet access in a surprisingly compact device. This compact and cost-effective dual-radio AP easily mounts to a standard data wall-box and uses the existing structured cabling system to provide secure wired and wireless network access in dormitories, classrooms, hotels, medical clinics and multitenant environments.
Capable of delivering high-performance Wi-Fi services to multiple rooms, the 205H simplifies RF coverage planning and reduces WLAN deployment costs. The AP-205H is built to provide years of trouble-free operation. The integrated antennas of the 205H are optimized for the deployments with the AP mounted vertically on either a wall or desk. The antenna patterns are slightly directional, focusing RF energy to and from the area facing the front of the AP. Three local Gigabit Ethernet ports are available to securely attach wired devices to your network. One of these ports is also capable of supplying PoE power to the attached device.
Aruba's Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC) feature enables WLANs to perform at peak efficiency by minimizing interference from 3G/4G LTE networks, distributed antenna systems and commercial small cell/femtocell equipment.
Wi-Fi client optimization
To eliminate sticky client behavior while users roam, Aruba APs feature ClientMatch technology, which continuously gathers session performance metrics from mobile devices. If a mobile device moves away from an AP or if RF interference impedes performance, ClientMatch automatically steers the device to a better AP.
Quality of service for unified communication apps
Aruba APs support priority handling and policy enforcement for unified communication apps, even with encrypted videoconferencing, voice, chat and desktop sharing.
