ARUBA AP-65 ACCESS POINT
The Aruba AP-65 is a dual radio (dual-band concurrent 802.11a plus b/g) highperformance indoor wireless access point 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 AP-65
access point supports diverse deployment options, delivering secure enterprise mobility
services and applications for high-performance enterprise and campus environments,
branch offices and retail spaces, as well as deployments over public and private networks
as a Remote Access Point. Centrally managed from an Aruba mobility controller, the AP65 empowers the network administrator with unparalleled control over services, security
and deployment models. The AP-65 supports dual, integral, high-performance omnidirectional multi-band antennas. Its discretely packaged and lightweight design allows it
to blend into an enterprise or retail environment with ease.
