Hi,

 

I am newbie to Aruba Wirless, I am currently using AP105 with wireless controller 3600, I am looking for more access point in my infrastructure where as AP105 is bit expensive for me, I am looking into other AP's such as AP93 & AP68 which is bit cheaper and reliable, I wanted to get clarifiy on these things as am not having much knowledge on Aruba Wirelss. Kindly help in this regards.

 

!) Is AP 93 & AP68 are copmitable with Wireless controller of Family 3600

2) If not, are there any other AP's which is cheaper and reliable with Wirelss Controller 3600.

 

Thanks in Advance.

Hi,

:smileywink:

It's more your ArubaOS version that you have on your 3600controller.

you controller ---> 3600 can be updated up to the newest version - so its capable to support all aruba ap's :smileytongue:

 

Please take a look in the following AP matrix:

IF you pre 5.0 AOS there is a license change.

IF you are post 5.0 - there is no license change at all.

 

IN ArubaOS 5.0

  • MAP was merged into base ArubaOS
  • VPN was merged into base ArubaOS
  • RAP was merged into AP license
  • PEF (user basis) was converted to PEFNG (AP basis) with ArubaOS 5.0

do understand those APs are cheaper for a reason, could be this will work out fine for you, but think about it well.

The AP68 is a single-stream access point and your users would not be able to associate at more than 65mbps association rate.  That of course is barely more than 802.11a/g.....  I would choose the AP93 at minimum if you want any more than two to three users associated to an access point.
