Overview
Aruba 310 Series Access Points
High-performance 802.11ac Wave 2
Product overview
The Aruba 310 Series access points deliver high performance and superb user experience for mobile devices, Internet of Things
(IoT) devices, and applications in dense office environments. Featuring the 4x4:4SS MU-MIMO capability, advanced Aruba
ClientMatch radio management, and Aruba Beacon technologies, the 310 Series enables an all-wireless digital work
environment in a cost-effective manner.
With a maximum concurrent data rate of 1,733 Mbps in the 5 GHz band and 300 Mbps in the 2.4 GHz band (for an aggregate
peak data rate of 2.0 Gbps), the 310 Series
APs can quickly add required capacities to your existing or new wireless networks. The mid-range 310 Series, with its single gigabit
Ethernet uplink, is ideal for high device density environments, such as schools, retail branches, hotels and enterprise offices, where
the organization is cost sensitive.
The high performance and high density 802.11ac 310 Series supports 160 MHz channel bandwidth (VHT160), multi-user MIMO
(MU-MIMO) and 4 spatial streams (4SS). It provides simultaneous multicast data transmission to multiple devices, maximizing data
throughput and improving network efficiency.
The 310 Series 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. By grouping MU-MIMO capable mobile devices together, the network starts taking advantage of the
simultaneous transmission to these devices, increasing its overall capacity. These dynamic roaming policies that are based on
device types, help users achieve the best WLAN performance in a mixed device environment during the technology transition
period.

Overview
The 310 Series also has an integrated Bluetooth Aruba Beacon that simplifies the remote management of a network of large-scale
battery-powered Aruba beacons while also providing advanced location and indoor way finding, and proximity-based push
notification capabilities. It enables businesses to leverage mobility context to develop applications that will deliver an enhanced
user experience and increase the value of the wireless network for organizations.

Dual Radio 802.11ac access point with Multi-User MIMO
- Supports up to 1,733Mbps in the 5GHz band (with 4SS/VHT80 or 2SS/VHT160 clients) and up to 300 Mbps in
the 2.4 GHz band (with 2SS/HT40 clients).
Built-in Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) radio
- Enables location based services with BLE-enabled mobile devices receiving signals from multiple Aruba Beacons
at the same time.
Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC)
- Minimizes interference from 3G/4G cellular networks, distributed antenna systems, and commercial small
cell/femtocell equipment.
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
RF Management
- Adaptive Radio Management (ARM) technology automatically assigns channel and power settings, provides
airtime fairness, and ensures that APs stay clear of all sources of RF interference to deliver reliable, highperformance WLANs.
- The Aruba 310 series APs 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.
Support for additional 5 GHz bands
- Supports software upgrade to enable additional 5 GHz spectrums when governments expand available
frequencies.
Intelligent app visibility and control
- AppRF technology leverages deep packet inspection to classify and block, prioritize, or limit bandwidth for
thousands of applications in a range of categories.
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, URLs and IPs, providing
comprehensive protection against advanced online threats.
- Integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for secure storage of credentials and keys.
Intelligent Power Monitoring (IPM):
- Enables the AP to continuously monitor and report its actual power consumption and optionally make
autonomous decisions to disable certain capabilities
- For the 310 Series Access Points, the IPM power-save feature applies when the unit is powered by an 802.3af
PoE source. By default, the USB interface will be the first feature to turn off if AP power consumption will exceed
the available power budget. In rare cases it may be necessary to take additional power saving measures, but in
most cases, the 310 Series APs will operate in unrestricted mode

Controller-managed mode – When managed by Aruba Mobility Controllers, Aruba 310 Series APs offer centralized
configuration, data encryption, policy enforcement and network services, as well as distributed and centralized traffic
forwarding.
Aruba Instant mode – 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. If WLAN requirements change, a built-in migration path allows 310 Series instant APs to
become part of a WLAN that is managed by a Mobility Controller.
Remote AP (RAP) for branch deployments
Air monitor (AM) for wireless IDS, rogue detection and containment
Spectrum analyzer, dedicated or hybrid, for identifying sources of RF interference
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.

Overview
-
•
•
When using IPM, the AP may enter power-save mode with reduced functionality when powered by an 802.3af
PoE source (see details on Intelligent Power Monitoring elsewhere in this datasheet)
- Without IPM, the USB port is disabled and transmit power of the 2.4 GHz radio chains is reduced by 3dB to
15dBm max when the AP is powered by and 802.3af PoE source
Maximum (worst-case) power consumption: 14.4W (802.3at PoE), 13.6W (802.3af PoE) or 12.7W (DC)
- Excludes power consumed by external USB device (and internal overhead); this could add up to 6.3W (PoE) or
5.9W (DC) for a 5W/1A USB device
Maximum (worst-case) power consumption in idle mode: 6.4W (PoE) or 5.9W (DC)
