The Instant AP 205 Access Point from ARUBA is a compact and cost-effective dual radio, which delivers wireless data rates of up to 867 Mb/s to 5 GHz devices with 802.11ac technology each with 2x2 MIMO streams, while simultaneously supporting 2.4 GHz 802.11n clients with data rates of up to 300 Mb/s. The multifunctional and wireless Access Point (AP) maximizes mobile device performance in medium density enterprise Wi-Fi environments. It features four integrated omni-directional, downtilt antennas.


Wi-Fi Client Optimization

It features patented ClientMatch technology, which continuously gathers session performance metrics from mobile devices. If a mobile device moves away from an AP or if RF interference impedes performance, ClientMatch automatically steers the device to a better AP.


Advanced Cellular Co-Existence (ACC)

ACC allows WLANs to perform at peak efficiency by minimizing interference from 3G/4G LTE networks, distributed antenna systems, and commercial small cell/femtocell equipment.


Quality of Service

The Access Point supports priority handling and policy enforcement for unified communication apps, including Microsoft Lync with encrypted video-conferencing, voice, chat, and desktop sharing.


Controller-Managed AP or Remote AP (RAP) Running ArubaOS

When managed by Aruba Mobility Controllers, the Access Point offers a centralized configuration, data encryption, policy enforcement, and network services, as well as a distributed and centralized traffic forwarding.


Instant AP running InstantOS

In instant mode, a single AP automatically distributes the network configuration to other instant APs in the WLAN. Easily power up on Instant AP to configure it over the air, and plug in the other APs.


The Access Point Specifications

2.4 GHz (300 Mb/s maximum rate) and 5 GHz (867 Mb/s maximum rate) radios, each with 2x2 MIMO and four integrated omni-directional downtilt antennas.


Spectrum Analysis

Capable of part-time or air-monitoring, the spectrum analyzer remotely scans the 2.4GHz and 5GHz radio bands to identify sources of RF interference.
