Aruba RAP 303H - One or two Ethernet uplinks?

Hi guys,

 

I understand that RAPs have one Ethernet uplink, and some of them have a USB port for connecting a 3G/4G modem to use as a backup WAN uplink, such as RAP 303H. But there is also this document

 

https://afp.arubanetworks.com/afp/index.php/Cloud-Managed_IAP-VPN_for_Micro_Branches

 

which shows that RAPs such as 303H have the possibility of having two Ethernet uplinks

But the document is ambiguous, for example, it says nothing on how to configure two Ethernet uplinks, neither the ArubaOS user guide.

Is this possible with only the IAP-VPN solution? Or is a capability of the RAP model itself? Because the 303H datasheet says nothing about the possibility of two Ethernet uplinks, neither with the IAP-VPN solution nor the Aruba RAP solution. Can I have the option of having two Ethernet uplinks with RAP 303H and using the conventional Aruba RAP solution (RAP and MC)?

 

Regards,

Julián

I kept investigating and found out that APs 303H and other can use two Ethernet ports as uplinks but only when they work as IAPs:

It would be nice to have this feature with RAPs.

Hi ,

I think 303H capable of using  ethernet uplink and backup USB uplink. But Like 303P should able to use multiple ethernret uplink .
