These affordable Wi-Fi 6 access points provide high-performance connectivity for any organization experiencing growing numbers of mobile, IoT and mobility requirements. With a maximum aggregate data rate of 1.77 Gbps (1.774 Gbps), they deliver the speed and reliability needed for venues and workplaces such as schools, midsize offices and retailers.

  • 1.77 Gbps of maximum throughput
  • WPA3 and Enhanced Open security
  • Built-in technology that resolves sticky client issues for Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 5 devices
  • OFDMA and MU-MIMO for enhanced multi-user efficiency
  • IoT-ready Bluetooth 5 and Zigbee support

  • Multi-user M1M0 (MU-MIMO)
    The 500 Series AP supports downlink MU-MIMO just like Wi- Fi 5 APs. The added benefit is the ability to multiply the number of clients that can now send traffic, thus optimizing client-to-AP spatial stream diversity.
  • Wi-Fi 6 and MU-MIMO aware client optimization
    Aruba's patented AI-powered ClientMatch technology eliminates sticky client issues by placing Wi-Fi 6 capable devices on the available AP. Session metrics are used to steer mobile devices to the AP based on available bandwidth, types of applications being used and traffic type - even as users roam.
  • Aruba Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC)
    This feature uses built-in filtering to automatically minimize the impact of interference from cellular networks, distributed antenna systems (DAS), and commercial small cell or femtocell equipment.
  • Intelligent Power Monitoring (IPM)
    Aruba APs continuously monitor and report hardware energy consumption. They can also be configured to enable or disable capabilities based on available PoE power - ideal when wired switches have exhausted their power budget.
  • Green AP energy efficiency
    Aruba Wi-Fi 6 APs utilize analytics from NetInsight to automatically transition in and out of a sleep mode based on client density.
  • VPN Tunnels
    In Remote AP (RAP) and IAP-VPN deployments, the Aruba 500 Series can be used to establish a secure SSL/IPSec VPN tunnel to a Mobility Controller that is acting as a VPN concentrator.
  • Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
    For enhanced device assurance, all Aruba Aps have an installed TPM for secure storage of credentials and keys, and boot code.
  • Simple and secure access
    To simplify policy enforcement, the Aruba 500 Series uses Aruba's policy enforcement firewall (PEF) feature to encapsulate all traffic from the AP to the Mobility Controller (or Gateway) for end-to-end encryption and inspection. Policies are applied based on user role, device type, applications, and location. This reduces the manual configuration of SSIDs, VLANs and ACLs. PEF also serves as the underlying technology for Aruba Dynamic Segmentation.
  • High-density connectivity
    Each 500 Series AP provides connectivity for a maximum of 256 associated clients per radio. In real-world scenarios, the maximum recommended client density is dependent on environmental conditions.
