ARUBA 330 SERIES
ACCESS POINTS
802.11ac Wave 2 that scales up to
multi-gig Ethernet
The Aruba 330 Series access points provide the
fastest gigabit data speeds and superb user
experience for mobile devices and applications in a
digital workplace. Designed with an integrated HPE
Smart Rate port to scale up to 2.5Gbps Ethernet,
the 330 Series allows enterprises to leverage their
multi-gigabit Ethernet wired network
infrastructures to eliminate bottlenecks.
Thanks to ClientMatch technology, ArubaOS enables the 330
series to automatically detect and classify 802.11ac Wave 2
capable mobile devices. This allows ClientMatch to
automatically collect Wave 2 capable devices under a single
Wave 2 radio so that performance benefits of multi-user
MIMO can be realized — without the adverse effects of
slower 802.11ac and traditional 802.11n capable mobile
devices. This means increased network capacity and a boost
in network efficiency.
With a maximum concurrent data rate of 1,733 Mbps in the
5 GHz band and 800 Mbps in the 2.4 GHz band (for an
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.
