Access Points
Maximizes Performance for Mobile Devices
The multifunction AP-134 and AP-135 can be configured through
the Mobility Controller to provide WLAN access with part-time air
monitoring for wireless IPS and spectrum analysis. They can be
configured as dedicated air monitors within the campus WLAN
or can be remotely located. They can enable wireless mesh
networking for high performance network backhaul where wired
cabling is not available.
802.11n indoor APs designed to support maximum performance
for maximum client density, with maximum deployment flexibility
and security.
The AP-134 and AP-135 indoor 802.11n access points (APs)
maximize performance for mobile devices in extremely highdensity Wi-Fi environments and ensure strong threat protection
using integrated MACSec* security.
These multifunctional APs deliver wire-like performance at data
rates up to 450 Mbps per radio. Taking advantage of 802.11n
technology, the AP-134 and AP-135 employ three spatial streams
to deliver 50% more throughput and support 50% more mobile
devices in high-density environments compared to previousgeneration APs.
The AP-134 features two 3x3 MIMO dual-band 2.4-GHz/5-GHz
radios with external antenna interfaces, while the AP-135 features
the same radios with internal antennas. Both are built to provide
years of trouble-free operation and are backed by a limited
lifetime warranty.
MACSec authentication and encryption on Ethernet ports enable
secure AP deployment by interoperating with the MACSec
capability on Aruba Mobility Access Switches and other wiring
closet devices.
The AP-134 and AP-135 feature dual 10/100/1000BASE-T
Ethernet interfaces and operate from standard 802.3af and
802.3at power-over-Ethernet (PoE) sources. The secondary
Ethernet interface (active only when supplying 802.3at PoE or DC
power to the access point) enables secure authorized backhaul for
wired network-attached devices.
Working with Aruba’s line of centralized Mobility Controllers, the
AP-134 and AP-135 deliver secure, high-speed network services
that move users to a “wireless where possible, wired where
necessary” network access model. The network can then be
rightsized by eliminating unused Ethernet switch ports and thereby
reducing operating costs.
The key to ensuring wire-like performance and reliability is Aruba’s
unique Adaptive Radio Management and spectrum analysis
capabilities, which manage the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radio bands to
deliver maximum client performance while mitigating any
RF interference.
Operating Mode
• Campus AP, air monitor (AM) and spectrum monitor
• Remote AP, AM and spectrum monitor
• Software-configurable dual radio capable of supporting 2.4 GHz
and 5 GHz
RF Management
• Automatic transmit power and channel management control with
auto coverage hole correction via Adaptive Radio Management
• Spectrum analysis scans the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radio bands
to provide increased visibility into non-802.11n RF interference
sources and their effect on 802.11n channel quality.
Advanced Features
• Remote AP, spectrum analysis, secure enterprise mesh and
wireless intrusion protection
• MACSec security for authorization and data encryption between
the AP ports and the wired access layer (requires MACSec
support on the wired edge switch)
• Integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for secure storage of
credentials and keys
• SecureJack-capable for secure tunneling of wired Ethernet traffic
• AP-134: Three RP-SMA antenna interfaces for external dualband antennas
• AP-135: Six internal downtilt omni-directional antennas; three
