Aruba AP-60 and
AP-61 Access Points
ARUBA AP-60 AND AP-61 ACCESS POINTS
The Aruba AP-60 and AP-61 are single radio (dual-band 802.11a or b/g) highperformance indoor wireless access points, capable of supporting multiple
functions including WLAN access, air monitoring/wireless intrusion detection and
prevention, and secure enterprise mesh across the 2.4-2.5 GHz and
5 GHz RF spectrums. The Aruba AP-60 and AP-61 access points support diverse
deployment options, delivering secure enterprise mobility services and applications
in enterprise, campus and branch office environments, and remotely over public
or private networks as a Remote Access Point. Centrally managed from an
Aruba controller, the AP-60 and AP-61 empower the network administrator with
unparalleled control over services, security and deployment models. The AP-60
supports external antennas through dual, detachable antenna interfaces and the AP-61 supports dual, integral,
high-performance omni-directional multi-band antennas.
