Access Point
ARUBA AP-105 ACCESS POINT
The multifunction AP-105 is an affordable indoor 802.11n access point (AP)
designed for high-density deployments in offices, hospitals, schools and retail
stores. The compact, high-speed AP-105 delivers wire-like performance at data
rates up to 300 Mbps per radio.
The AP-105 features two 2x2 MIMO dual-band 2.4-GHz/5-GHz radios with
two internal omni-directional antennas. With ceiling and wall-mounting options,
the AP-105 is built to provide years of trouble-free operation and is backed by a
limited lifetime warranty.
Working with Aruba’s line of centralized Mobility Controllers, the AP-105 delivers
secure, high-speed network services that move users to a “wireless where possible,
wired where necessary” network access model. The network can then be rightsized by
eliminating unused Ethernet switch ports and thereby reducing operating costs.
802.11n enables the use of wireless as a primary connection with speed and
reliability comparable to a wired LAN. It also increases performance by utilizing techniques such as channel bonding, block
acknowledgement and MIMO radios. Advanced antenna technology also increases range and reliability.
The key to ensuring wire-like performance and reliability is Aruba’s unique Adaptive Radio Management and spectrum analysis*
capabilities, which manage the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radio bands to deliver maximum client performance while mitigating any RF
interference.
The multifunction AP-105 can be configured through the Mobility Controller to provide WLAN access with part-time air monitoring,
dedicated air monitoring for wireless IPS and spectrum analysis, Remote AP (RAP) functionality or secure enterprise mesh.. The
AP-105 features a 100/1000BASE-T Ethernet interface and can operate from standard 802.3af power-over-Ethernet (PoE) sources
or a 12-volt DC power supply.
APPLICATION
• Value-priced indoor 802.11n dual-radio, dual-band AP for highdensity deployments in offices, hospitals, schools and retail stores.
OPERATING MODE
• 802.11a/b/g/n AP, air monitor (AM) and Remote AP (RAP)
• Spectrum monitor, AM and RAP
• AM and RAP
• Remote AP
• Secure enterprise mesh
RADIOS
• Software-configurable dual radio capable of supporting 2.4 GHz and
5 GHz
• Both radios 802.11n capable, implementing 2x2 MIMO with two
spatial streams, providing up to 300 Mbps data rate per radio
RF MANAGEMENT
• Automatic transmit power and channel management control with
auto coverage hole correction via Adaptive Radio Management
(ARM)
• Spectrum analysis* remotely scans the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radio
bands to identify sources of RF interference. This provides visibility
into non-802.11 RF interference sources and their effect on 802.11n
channel quality.
