Product Description

Aruba Instant mode, a single AP automatically distributes the network, configuration to other Instant APs in the WLAN. Simply power-up one Inst AP, configure it over the air, and plug in the other APs – the entire process takes about five minutes. If WLAN requirements change, a built-in migration path allows 320 series Instant APs to become part of a WLAN that is managed by a Mobility Controller. Up to 16 Aruba Instant APs can be controlled by a single AP that automatically becomes a primary Virtual Controller. In the event of primary Virtual Controller failure, another Aruba Instant AP automatically takes on the role with no disruption. Multifunctional and affordable Aruba IAP-325-US 802.11ac wireless access points maximize mobile device performance in medium-density enterprise Wi-Fi environments. In Aruba Instant mode, a single AP automatically distributes the network configuration to other Instant APs in the WLAN. Powered over Ethernet (PoE). Intended to be used with a PoE Injector or Power Adapter (both sold separately)

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.

POWER

  • Maximum (worst-case) power consumption: 20W (802.3at PoE), 13.5W (802.3af PoE) or 18.5W (DC)
  • Excludes power consumed by external USB device (and internal overhead); this could add up to 6W (POE) or 5.5W (DC) for 5W/1A USB device
  • Maximum (worst-case) power consumption in idle mode: 8W (PoE) or 7W (DC).
  • Direct DC source: 48Vdc nominal, +/- 5%.
  • Power over Ethernet (PoE): 12 Vdc (nominal) 802.3af/802.3at compliant source
  • Unrestricted functionality with 802.3at PoE; Power-save mode with reduced functionality from 802.3af PoE
  • USB port disabled
  • Second Ethernet port disabled
  • 2.4 GHz radio in 1×1:1 mode
  • Power sources sold separately
  • When both power sources are available, DC power takes priority

WI-FI ANTENNAS

AP-324/IAP-324:

Four RP-SMA connectors for external dual band antennas. Internal loss between radio interface and external antenna connectors (due to diplexing circuitry): 2.5 dB in 2.4 GHz and 1.5 dB in 5 GHz.

AP-325/IAP-325:

Eight integrated downtilt omni-directional antennas for 4×4 MIMO with maximum antenna gain of 3.5 dBi in 2.4 GHz and 5.0 dBi in 5 GHz. Built-in antennas are optimized for horizontal ceiling-mounted orientation of the AP. The downtilt angle for maximum gain is ~ 30 degrees.
