Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company announced that its full family of high performance indoor Wi-Fi 6 access points (APs) – including the Aruba 500 Series, 510 Series, 530 Series and 550 Series APs – achieved Wi-Fi Certified 6 certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance. This makes it the industry’s first full family of Wi-Fi 6 indoor APs to be certified based on the Wi-Fi Alliance Wi-Fi 6 testbed of products.
Aruba 500, 510, 530 and 550 Series Wi-Fi 6 APs, combined with Aruba AI-powered software features, deliver high performance connectivity in extremely dense mobile and IoT deployments. They are also WPA3 and Enhanced Open-certified – providing next-generation security functionalities that combine improved crypto-graphic strength, resiliency and simpler deployment. With the ability to simultaneously serve multiple clients and types of traffic, the APs deliver up to four times the network performance of 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5) APs.
Aruba’s Wi-Fi 6 APs also provide Aruba differentiated functionalities, such as AirMatch – Aruba’s next-generation AI-based RF optimisation technology, zero downtime, live software upgrades, and the ability to support Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5 and Zigbee protocols – which allows organisations to connect with 74 percent of today’s IoT devices.
