    We use an Aruba - Campus mode environment in all of our offices.  All of the Access points are indoor access points that have a n omni-directional range.  What Is The Difference Between An Omnidirectional Antenna And A Directional Antenna?

    I have been tasked with finding some antennas that will have directional antennas.  So we can potentially focus wireless range in a specific location.  I guess the idea is if the staff is at a loading dock and there is a cement wall where the loading dock gates rise, we want the wireless signals to extend to where the semi trucks go.

    Are there any Aruba Access Points that we can use with directional antennas?  So we can point the wireless range in a specific direction?

    AP-367 - is that too much?

    I guess we are looking for Indoor Access Points with directional antennas.

    you can use AP-567s which have built-in directional antennas (90°H x 90°V). very easy to install., they are outdoor APs but you can also use them indoor.
    here is the datasheet for it
