The Aruba 802.11n outdoor access point (AP) provides maximum deployment flexibility in a wide range of harsh environments.
The multifunction AP-175 is an affordable, fully hardened outdoor 802.11n AP that provides maximum deployment flexibility in high-density campuses, storage yards, warehouses, container and 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 Mb/s 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.
As an 802.11n AP, the AP-175 works with centralized Aruba Mobility Controllers to enable the use of wireless as a primary connection with speed and reliability comparable to a wired LAN. The AP-175 also increases performance by utilizing techniques such as channel bonding, block acknowledgement, and MIMO radios. Advanced antenna technology also increases range and reliability.
