Introducing the new Aruba 210 Series 802.11ac Access Points...
These new 210 Series AP's (AP-214/AP-215) have the following key features:

- supports a moderate density of clients
- one GigE uplink port
- 802.3af-powered (USB accessory port requires 802.3at power source)
With Aruba having the industry's only complete 802.11ac portfolio in the market, you can rightsize your WLAN by mixing & matching the best AP's for each area of your deployment.
- 220 Series: the highest performing 802.11ac (3SS, 1.3 Gbps)
- 210 Series: for high performance, moderate density 802.11ac needs (3SS, 1.3 Gbps)
- 200 Series: 802.11ac (2SS, 867 Mbps) for lower density needs
- 270 Series: delivering 802.11ac for outdoor environments in the campus
To help you pick the best AP for each area of your deployment, refer to the following table as a guideline:
As an example deployment, I might choose to deploy the 220 Series in my office areas where I have many information workers who need fast Wi-Fi while I could deploy the 200 Series for coverge in hallways that don't have the performance or density needs of other locations and I could provide robust coverage in the outdoor break area and walkways between office buildings so my employees will never miss a call wherever they roam in their All-Wireless Workplace.
