Aruba 500 Series Access Point Brackets

One of our customers is upgrading their network from AP-225's to AP-515's. The new 500 series AP's use new brackets which is slightly annoying, but what is worse is that the holes of the new solid surface brackets do not line up with the old brackets so every AP needs new holes to be drilled. 

Aruba - Please can you ask your product management team to create a bracket with holes that align with the AP-220-MNT-W1?

No, they do not. You'll need type E.

It might not help your situation right now, but for future reference you can always review the mounting bracket Template Guides to give you an idea of the hole alignment.

Re: Aruba 500 Series Access Point Brackets

Hello Craig,

Yes, I looked at the alignment guides that's how I found out that the hold don't line up. I thought that the holes in the AP-MNT-E may have lined up with the holes of the AP-220-MNT-W1 but they don't.

Actually they do. The original hole pattern was made to match that of the W2 and W3 mount brackets/boxes, but we later added holes to match the W1 ones as well. You may be looking at an old version of the template and/or we may not have updated it..

The bracket update was completed about a year ago, so current shipping units should have the additional holes.

Thanks Onno,

 The template guide I used was this one here 

https://support.arubanetworks.com/DesktopModules/Bring2mind/DMX/Download.aspx?TabId=77&DMXModule=512&Command=Core_Download&EntryId=36140&PortalId=0

I downloaded the templates, imported it into AutoCAD and scaled it realised that holes didn’t match but if there are more holes now then all is well!

Yeah, I just confirmed that we did not update the template. It will be taken care of soon, since we're actually adding even more holes just now..
