ARUBA 303H HOSPITALITY ACCESS POINT
High-performance 802.11ac Wave 2 access point for hospitality and branch offices
The multi-functional Wave 2 303H access
point delivers best-in class Wi-Fi connectivity
for hospitality and branch offices, enabling an
always-on user experience with low Total Cost of
Ownership (TCO).
With a maximum concurrent data rate of 867Mbps in the
5GHz band and 300Mbps in the 2.4GHz band, the 303H AP
delivers high-performance Gigabit Wi-Fi for hospitality
and branch environments at an attractive price point. It
supports multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) and 2 spatial
streams (2SS) to provide simultaneous data transmission for
up to 2 devices, maximizing data throughput and improving
network efficiency.
The 303H AP can be easily mounted to a standard data
Single-gang wall-box (primary hospitality deployment)
wall-box using the existing structured cabling system or
converted to a desk mounted AP using an optional mounting
kit. It is ideal for schools (dormitories, classrooms), hotels,
medical clinics, branch offices and remote workstations
which often require flexible and easy deployment options.
The 802.11ac Wave 2 303H AP combines wireless and
wired access in a single compact device. Three local Gigabit
Ethernet ports are available to securely attach wired devices
to your network. One of these ports is also capable of
supplying PoE power to the attached device.
Like all other Aruba Wave 2 APs, the 303H AP includes the
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 to achieve the best WLAN performance
in a mixed device environment during the technology
transition period.
The integrated Bluetooth Aruba Beacon in the 303H AP
simplifies the remote management of a large scale network
of battery-powered BLE Aruba Beacons while also providing
advanced location and indoor wayfinding, and proximitybased push notification capabilities.
Desk mount (primary remote/branch deployment, using optional desk
mount accessory)

UNIQUE BENEFITS
Two devices in one
• The 303H ships with everything you need to deploy as
a wall-mounted (hospitality) AP, attaching directly to a
standard single-gang data wall-box. The 303H can also be
easily converted to a desk mounted (remote) AP, using an
optional accessory stand.
Unified AP – deploy with or without controller
• The 303H can be deployed in either controller-based
(ArubaOS) or controllerless (InstantOS) deployment mode.
• The 303H 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.
Security
• Integrated wireless intrusion protection offers threat
protection and mitigation, and eliminates the need for
separate RF sensors and security appliances.
• IP reputation and security services identify, classify,
Dual Radio 802.11ac access point with Multi-User
and block malicious files, URLs and IPs, providing
MIMO (Wave 2)
comprehensive protection against advanced
• Supports up to 867Mbps in the 5GHz band (with
2SS/VHT80 clients) and up to 300Mbps in the 2.4GHz
band (with 2SS/HT40 clients).

classify and block, prioritize or limit bandwidth for over
the same time.
2,500 enterprise apps or groups of apps.
• Enables management of your deployment of batterypowered Aruba Beacons.
Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC)
• Minimizes the impact from out-of-band interference from
sources such as 3G/4G cellular networks.
Intelligent Power Monitoring (IPM)
• Enables the AP to continuously monitor and report
its actual power consumption and optionally make
autonomous decisions to prioritize capabilities when
power budget is limited.
• For the 303H, the IPM power-save feature applies when
the unit is powered by an 802.3af or 802.3at POE source.
By default, the USB interface will be the first feature to
be turned off by IPM if the AP power consumption would
otherwise exceed the available power budget. Specific
power-saving options are programmable with IPM.
RF Management
• Adaptive Radio Management (ARM) technology
automatically assigns channel and power settings,
Quality of service for unified communication apps
• Supports priority handling and policy enforcement for
unified communication apps, including Microsoft Skype
for Business with encrypted videoconferencing, voice,
chat and desktop sharing.
CHOOSE YOUR DEPLOYMENT AND
OPERATING MODES
Aruba Unified APs offer a choice of deployment and
operating modes to meet your unique management and
deployment requirements:
• The 303H AP is a unified AP that supports both
controller-based and controllerless deployment modes,
providing maximum flexibility
• Controller-based mode: When deployed in conjunction
with an Aruba Mobility Controller, Aruba APs offer
centralized configuration, data encryption, policy
enforcement and network services, as well as distributed
and centralized traffic forwarding.
• Controllerless (Instant) mode: The controller function
provides airtime fairness and ensures that APs stay clear
is virtualized in a cluster of APs in Instant mode. As
of all sources of RF interference to deliver reliable, high-
the network grows and/or requirements change,
performance WLANs
Instant deployments can easily migrate to controllerbased mode.
