Aruba 220 Series Access Points
Setting a higher standard for 802.11ac
Product overview
Multifunctional 220 series wireless APs deliver gigabit Wi-Fi performance to 802.11ac mobile devices. Integrated Aruba
ClientMatch technology ensures consistently high performance across the WLAN infrastructure.
With a maximum data rate of 1.3 Gbps in the 5-GHz band and 600 Mbps in the 2.4-GHz band, 220 series APs are three-times
faster than 802.11n APs and provide performance similar to a wired connection.
The 220 series APs include ClientMatch technology, which eliminates sticky clients by continuously gathering session performance
metrics from mobile devices. This information is then used to steer each mobile device to the best AP and radio on the WLAN.
Proactive and deterministic, ClientMatch dynamically optimizes Wi-Fi client performance as users roam and RF conditions change.
If a mobile device moves out of range of an AP or RF interference impedes performance, ClientMatch automatically steers it to a
better AP.
With ClientMatch, 220 series APs load web pages faster, deliver video streams with improved quality and support high densities of
mobile devices. An 802.11ac network without ClientMatch performs no different than an 802.11n WLAN.
The 220 series APs additionally support priority handling and policy enforcement for individual Microsoft Lync media on the same
device, including encrypted videoconferencing, voice, chat and desktop sharing.
Features and Benefits
Unique Benefits
•
Allows phased wired infrastructure upgrades
- Adapts to available 802.3af power-over-Ethernet (PoE) instead of requiring customers to upgrade to 802.3at
PoE+.

Delivers 1.9 Gbps aggregate throughput.
- EtherChannel link aggregation on two Gigabit Ethernet ports provides 1.9 Gbps throughput.
600 Mbps in the 2.4-GHz band.
- Supports up to 600 Mbps for TurboQAM-enabled mobile devices operating in the 2.4-GHz band – an industry
first.
Best-in-class RF management
- Integrated Adaptive Radio Management technology manages the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radio bands and ensures
that APs stay clear of RF interference.
Spectrum analysis
- Capable of part-time or dedicated air monitoring, the spectrum analyzer remotely scans the 2.4-GHz and 5 GHz
radio bands to identify sources of RF interference.
Wireless mesh
- Wireless mesh connections are convenient 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, and block malicious files, URL and IPs, providing
comprehensive protection against advanced online threats
- Encrypted IPsec VPN tunnels securely connect remote users to corporate network resources.
- Integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for secure storage of credentials and keys.
- SecureJack-capable for secure tunneling of wired Ethernet traffic.

Controller-managed AP or Remote AP (RAP) running ArubaOS. When managed by Aruba Mobility Controllers, 220 series
APs offer centralized configuration, data encryption, policy enforcement and network services, as well as distributed and
centralized traffic forwarding.
Aruba Instant AP running InstantOS. In Aruba Instant mode, a single AP automatically distributes the network
configuration to other Instant APs in the WLAN. Simply power-up one Instant AP, configure it over the air, and plug in the
other APs – the entire process takes about five minutes.
Spectrum analysis identifies sources of RF interference
Air monitor provides wireless intrusion protection
Hybrid AP serves Wi-Fi clients and provides wireless intrusion protection and spectrum analysis
Secure enterprise mesh
For large installations across multiple sites, the Aruba Activate service significantly reduces deployment time by automating device
provisioning, firmware upgrades, and inventory management. With Aruba Activate, Instant APs are factory- shipped to any site and
configure themselves when powered up.
If WLAN and network requirements change, a built-in migration path allows 220 series Instant APs to become part of a WLAN that
is centrally managed by a Mobility Controller.
