    hello all,

    bit of a stranger request but can you confirm exactly what colour the Aruba APs. I know you want to say white but more specifically, can you confirm?

    this has come in from a customer and they need to know what shade they are.

    thanks

    As far as I know, the color is even different depending on the AP type. Most of them are 'off-white', but when I compare 300/500/600 series they are different in color and finish (matte vs shiny). I don't remember that I ever have seen the exact color, but what I have seen is that depending on the environment the APs may change color a bit over time. If color is important, the covers and painting are probably the best path.

    It's "Aruba white" ;-)
    There's no corresponding RAL, Pantone or other color code, and color matching is done using a color chip.
    Note that texture is critical as well, and may vary by AP model
