Ethernet Ports
IAP-130 Series is equipped with two 10/100/1000Base-T (RJ-45) auto-sensing, MDI/MDX wired-network
connectivity ports. These ports support IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE) compliance, accepting 56
VDC as a standard defined Powered Device (PD) from a Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) such as a PoE
midspan injector, or network infrastructure that supports PoE.
NOTE
Use the ENET 0 port for uplink connections to a switch or router. The ENET 1 port does not provide wired
connectivity.
DC Power Socket
If PoE is not available, an optional Aruba AP AC-DC adapter kit (sold separately) can be used to power the
IAP-130 Series.
Reset Button
The reset button can be used to return the IAP-130 Series to factory default settings. To reset the IAP-130
Series:
1. Power off the IAP-130 Series by removing the Ethernet cable (POE) or power adapter cable.
2. Press and hold the reset button using a small, narrow object, such as a paperclip.
3. Power-on the IAP-130 Series without releasing the reset button. The power LED will flash within 5
seconds.

4. Release the reset button.
The power LED will flash again within 15 seconds indicating that the reset is completed. The IAP-130 Series
will now continue to boot with the factory default settings.
Kensington Lock Slot
The IAP-130 Series is equipped with a Kensington security slot for additional security.

CAUTION
FCC Statement: Improper termination of access points installed in the United States configured to non-US model
controllers will be in violation of the FCC grant of equipment authorization. Any such willful or intentional violation may
result in a requirement by the FCC for immediate termination of operation and may be subject to forfeiture (47 CFR
1.80).
EU Statement:

Aruba IAP-130 Series Instant Access Point | Installation Guide
Summary of the Setup Process
NOTE
It is important that you verify the items listed under Pre-Installation Checklist before you attempt to set up and
install an IAP-130 Series AP.
Successful setup of an IAP-130 Series access point consists of five tasks, which must be performed in this
order:
1. Verify pre-installation connectivity.
2. Identify the specific installation location for each AP.
3. Install each AP.
4. Verify post-installation connectivity.
5. Configure each AP.
!
CAUTION
NOTE
Access points are radio transmission devices and as such are subject to governmental regulation. Network
administrators responsible for the configuration and operation of access points must comply with local broadcast
regulations. Specifically, access points must use channel assignments appropriate to the location in which the
access point will be used.
Aruba Networks, in compliance with governmental requirements, has designed the IAP-130 Series access points so
that only authorized network administrators can change the settings. For more information about AP configuration,
refer to the Aruba Instant Quick Start Guide and Aruba Instant User Guide.
Identifying Specific Installation Locations
You can mount the IAP-130 Series access point a ceiling rail (using the included adapter) or on a wall (using
the wall mount adapter, sold separately). Use the AP placement map generated by Aruba’s Airwave Virtual
RF software application to determine the proper installation location(s). Each location should be as close
as possible to the center of the intended coverage area and should be free from obstructions or obvious
sources of interference. These RF absorbers/reflectors/interference sources will impact RF propagation
and should have been accounted for during the planning phase and adjusted for in RF plan.
Unidentified Known RF Absorbers/Reflectors/Interference Sources
Identifying known RF absorbers, reflectors, and interference sources while in the field during the
installation phase is critical. Make sure that these sources are taken into consideration when you attach an
AP to its fixed location.
RF absorbers include:

Cement/concrete: Old concrete has high levels of water dissipation, which dries out the concrete,
allowing for potential RF propagation. New concrete has high levels of water concentration within the
concrete, blocking RF signals.

Natural Items: Fish tanks, water fountains, ponds, and trees

Brick
RF reflectors include:

Metal Objects: Metal pans between floors, rebar, fire doors, air conditioning/heating ducts, mesh
windows, blinds, chain link fences (depending on aperture size), refrigerators, racks, shelves, and filing
cabinets
Aruba IAP-130 Series Instant Access Point | Installation Guide
5

Do not place an AP between two air conditioning/heating ducts. Make sure that APs are placed below
ducts to avoid RF disturbances.
RF interference sources include:

Microwave ovens and other 2.4 or 5 GHz objects (such as cordless phones)

Lunch rooms and call centers with cordless headsets
Installing the AP
Service to all Aruba Networks products should be performed by trained service personnel only.
NOTE
Using the Ceiling Rail Adapter
The IAP-130 Series ships with two ceiling rail adapters for 9/16” and 15/16” ceiling rails.
!
Make sure the AP fits securely on the ceiling tile rail when hanging the device from the ceiling, because poor
installation could cause it to fall onto people or equipment.
CAUTION
1. Pull the necessary cables through a prepared hole in the ceiling tile near where the AP will be placed.
2. Place the adapter against the back of the AP with the adapter at an angle of approximately 30 degrees to
the tabs (see Figure 3).
3. Twist the adapter clockwise until it snaps into place in the tabs (see Figure 3).
AP-130_001
Figure 3 Attaching the Ceiling Rail Adapter
4. If necessary, connect the console cable to the console port on the back of the AP.
5. Hold the AP next to the ceiling tile rail with the ceiling tile rail mounting slots at approximately a 30degree angle to the ceiling tile rail (see Figure 4). Make sure that any cable slack is above the ceiling tile.
6

6. Pushing toward the ceiling tile, rotate the AP clockwise until the device clicks into place on the ceiling
tile rail.

7. On the IAP-134, install the external antennas according to the manufacturer’s instructions, and connect
the antennas to the antenna interfaces on the AP.
Connecting Required Cables
Install cables in accordance with all applicable local and national regulations and practices.
Ethernet Ports
The RJ-45 Ethernet ports (ENET0 and ENET1) support 10/100/1000Base-T auto-sensing MDI/MDX
connections. Use these ports to connect the AP to a twisted pair Ethernet LAN segment or directly to an
Aruba Controller. Use a 4- or 8-conductor, Category 5 UTP cable up to 100 m (325 feet) long.
The 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet ports are on the bottom of the AP. These ports have RJ-45 female
connectors with the pin-outs shown in Table 1.

Serial Console Port
The serial console port allows you to connect the AP to a serial terminal or a laptop for direct local
management. This port is an RJ-45 female connector with the pinouts described in Table 2. Connect this
port in one of the following ways:

Connect it directly to a terminal or terminal server using an Ethernet cable.

Use a modular adapter to convert the RJ-45 (female) connector on the AP to a DB-9 (male) connector,
and connect the adapter to a laptop using an RS-232 cable. See Figure 5 for connector details of the
adapter.
