Aruba Data Sheet
ARUBA RAP-100 series REMOTE ACCESS POINTs
High-performance wireless and wired networking for SMBs, branch offices
and teleworkers
When operating in Aruba Instant mode, the cloud-based Aruba
Activate™ service dramatically reduces RAP-100 series
deployment time by performing zero-touch provisioning, firmware
upgrades and inventory management. With Aruba Activate,
RAP-100s are factory-shipped to remote deployment sites and
obtain their configurations automatically when powered up.
ADVANCED FEATURES
The multifunctional Aruba RAP-100 series delivers secure 802.11n
wireless and wired networking to SMBs and access to corporate
resources from branch and home offices.
With unmatched deployment flexibility, the RAP-100 series can
operate in Aruba Instant™ mode controlled by the AirWave™
management platform or in controller-managed mode where all
network services are centralized by Aruba Mobility Controllers.
In Aruba Instant mode, traffic is locally bridged but it still provides
the flexibility of secure tunneling to Mobility Controllers.
To eliminate client stickiness, the RAP-100 series includes
integrated ClientMatch™ technology, which continuously gathers
session performance metrics and uses this data to every device to
the best AP and radio on the WLAN, even while users roam and
RF conditions change.
The RAP-100 series also offers a wide range of enterprise-class
features, including role-based network access, policy-based
forwarding, and Adaptive Radio Management™ (ARM), which
optimizes Wi-Fi client performance and ensures that Aruba APs
stay clear of interference.
At locations that require greater coverage, the RAP-100 can join
an Aruba Instant WLAN cluster. Simply install additional RAP-100s
or any Aruba Instant AP and the entire cluster is managed as one.
If one Aruba Instant AP fails, another AP automatically takes over
with no disruption.
With a wireless data rate up to 300 Mbps in the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz
radio bands, the RAP-100 series has one 10/100/1000BASE-T
Ethernet uplink, one 10/100BASE-T local Ethernet port and one USB
port to connect to 3G and 4G networks.
• ClientMatch technology eliminates sticky clients by continuously
gathering session performance metrics and using this
information to steer them to the best AP and radio.
• ARM technology delivers best-in-class RF management,
including automatic transmit power and channel control with
auto coverage-hole correction.
• Zero-touch provisioning as well as automated firmware
upgrades and inventory management with the cloud-based
Aruba Activate service.
• Spectrum analyzer remotely scans the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radio
bands to identify sources of RF interference.
• Security:
-- With an OpenDNS service subscription, Aruba Instant
RAPs delivers integrated web filtering, malware and botnet
protection to every device connected to the WLAN
-- Integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for secure storage
of credentials and keys
-- SecureJack-capable for secure tunneling of wired
Ethernet traffic
-- VPN configuration functionality enables the Instant AP to
create a single VPN tunnel to an Aruba Mobility Controller
in the data center. The Mobility Controller acts solely as a
VPN end-point and does not supply the Instant AP with any
configuration.
