The Aruba 310 Series Instant IAP-315 Indoor Dual-Radio Wireless Access Point from HP offers maximum data rates of up to 1733 Mb/s in the 5 GHz band (802.11ac) and 300 Mb/s in the 2.4 GHz band for an aggregated data rate of 2.0 Gb/s. Each radio supports multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) and four spatial Access Point streams (4SS). It provides simultaneous data transmission to multiple devices, maximizing data throughput and improving network efficiency. The unit has four integrated omnidirectional down-tilt antennas that are optimized for horizontal ceiling-mounted orientation of the access point.

This dual-radio access point (AP) includes enhanced ClientMatch technology that extends the client steering technology with MU-MIMO client awareness. It automatically identifies MU-MIMO capable mobile devices and steers those devices to the closest MU-MIMO capable Aruba access point. By grouping MU-MIMO capable mobile devices together, the network starts taking advantage of the simultaneous transmission to these devices, increasing its overall capacity. These roaming policies that are based on device types, help customers achieve optimum WLAN performance in a mixed device environment during the technology transition period.

The unit features an integrated Bluetooth Aruba Beacon that simplifies the remote management of a network of large scale battery-powered Aruba beacons while also providing advanced location and indoor way finding, and proximity-based push notification capabilities. It enables businesses to leverage mobility context to develop applications that will deliver an enhanced user experience and increase the value of the wireless network for organizations.

General Features

  • Dual-radio 4x4 802.11ac access point with multi-user MIMO

  • It supports priority handling and policy enforcement for unified communication apps, including Microsoft Skype for Business with encrypted videoconferencing, voice, chat, and desktop sharing
  • For large installations across multiple sites, the Aruba Activate service significantly reduces deployment time by automating device provisioning, firmware upgrades, and inventory management
  • Adaptive Radio Management (ARM) technology automatically assigns channel and power settings, provides airtime fairness, and ensures that the access point stays clear from all sources of RF interference to deliver reliable, high-performance WLANs
  • Access Point can be configured to provide part-time or dedicated air-monitoring for spectrum analysis and wireless intrusion protection, VPN tunnels to extend remote locations to corporate resources, and wireless mesh connections where Ethernet drops are not available
  • AppRF technology leverages deep packet inspection to classify and block, prioritize or limit bandwidth for over 1500 enterprise apps or groups of apps
  • Integrated wireless intrusion protection offers threat protection and mitigation, eliminating the need for separate RF sensors and security appliances
  • IP reputation and security services identify, classify, and block malicious files, URLs, and IPs, providing comprehensive protection against advanced online threats
  • Integrated TPM (Trusted Platform Module) provides secure storage of credentials and keys and SecureJack ensures secure tunneling of wired Ethernet traffic
  • IPM (Intelligent Power Monitoring) enables the AP to continuously monitor and report its actual power consumption and optionally make autonomous decisions to disable certain capabilities

Operating Modes

  • Offers a choice of operating modes to meet your management and deployment requirements
  • Controller-Managed Mode - When managed by Aruba Mobility Controllers, this access point offers centralized configuration, data encryption, policy enforcement, and network services, as well as distributed and centralized traffic forwarding

  • Supports up to 256 associated client devices per radio, and up to 16 BSSIDs per radio
  • DFS (Dynamic frequency selection) optimizes the use of available RF spectrum
  • ACC (Advanced Cellular Coexistence) feature to effectively deal with interference from cellular systems
  • MRC (Maximum Ratio Combining) for improved receiver performance
  • CDD / CSD (Cyclic Delay / Shift Diversity) for improved downlink RF performance
  • Short guard interval for 20-, 40-, 80-, and 160-MHz channels
  • STBC (Space-Time Block Coding) for increased range and improved reception
  • LDPC (Low-Density Parity Check) for high-efficiency error correction and increased throughput
  • TxBF (Transmit Beam-Forming) for increased reliability in signal delivery
