The multifunction AP-175 is an affordable, fully hardened outdoor 802.11n access point (AP) that provides maximum deployment flexibility in high-density campuses, storage yards, warehouses, container/transportation facilities, extreme industrial production areas and other harsh environments. The high-performance AP-175 delivers wire-like performance at data rates up to 300 Mbps per radio.
The AP-175 features two 2×2 MIMO dual-band 2.4-GHz/5-GHz radios with quad antenna interfaces. With wall and mast mounting options, the AP-175 is built to provide years of trouble-free operation.
Engineered to survive in harsh outdoor environments, the AP-175 withstands exposure to high and low temperatures, persistent moisture and precipitation, and is fully sealed for protection from airborne contaminants. All electrical interfaces include industrial-strength surge protection.
As an 802.11n AP, the AP-175 works with Aruba’s centralized Mobility Controllers to enable the use of wireless as a primary connection with speed and reliability comparable to a wired LAN. It also increases performance by utilizing techniques such as channel bonding, block acknowledgement and MIMO radios. Advanced antenna technology also increases range and reliability.
The key to ensuring wire-like performance and reliability is Aruba’s unique Adaptive Radio Management (ARM) and spectrum analysis* capabilities, which manage the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radio bands to mitigate RF interference and maximize Wi-Fi client performance.
The multifunction AP-175 can be configured through the Aruba Mobility Controller to provide wireless LAN access with part-time air monitoring, dedicated air monitoring for wireless IPS and spectrum analysis, Remote AP (RAP) functionality or secure enterprise mesh.
