Aruba Wireless Bridge - AP as WLAN Client?

We have a requirement to connected some individual wired-only workstations in a warehouse to the WLAN. I know of the Aruba 501 wireless bridge inherited from before the HPE acquisition, but what other solutions can you recommend? Is it possible to configure something like a 303H as a WLAN client to connect with EAP-PEAP or EAP-TLS to an existing Aruba WLAN?

501 client bridge would be the recommendation and supports both PEAPv0 and EAP-TLS.

Does the 501 allow you to do any port-based security on the ethernet side? e.g. 802.1x or at least ACLs.

 

Also does the 501 support more than one client VLAN or is it just a "dumb" bridge.

No wired dot1x on the 501 uplink port, and no multiple VLANs, you would need a proper mesh link and a switch on the remote side for that, or you could run a wired RAP over the 501 for mobility if you need the remote side to roam.
