Aruba AP-120 and
AP-121 Access Points
Aruba AP-120 and AP-121 Access POints
The AP-120 and AP-121 are high-performance, multi-band
[802.11a/b/g and 802.11n (3x3 MIMO)] single-radio indoor wireless
access points capable of delivering wireless data rates of up to
300Mbps. These multi-function access points provide wireless
LAN access, air monitoring, and wireless intrusion detection and
prevention over the 2.4GHz and 5GHz RF spectrum. The access
points work in conjunction with Aruba’s Multi-Service Controllers to
deliver high-speed, secure network services.
802.11n enables the use of wireless as a primary connection with speed
and reliability comparable to a wired LAN. 802.11n increases performance through techniques such as channel
bonding, block acknowledgement, and Multiple In Multiple Out (MIMO). In addition, advanced antenna technology
also increases range and reliability.
The AP-120 and AP-121 feature dual 100/1000 Ethernet interfaces and operate from standard 802.3af Power over
Ethernet (PoE) sources. The AP-120 features detachable antenna interfaces while the AP-121 features integrated
3x3 MIMO dual-band antenna elements.
The access points are also available in a 802.11a/b/g-only variant that can be converted to full 802.11n support
through a software unlock key. This feature allows organizations to prepare for future 802.11n deployments
without paying for 802.11n today.
