Next-Generation 802.11AX WI-FI Features


AP22 is a Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6™ (Wi-Fi 6) access point that brings higher capacity, efficiency, and performance to small businesses with dense deployments. With a maximum aggregate data rate of 1.7 Gbps, AP22 access points deliver the speed and reliability small businesses need.

Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA)

Allows access points (APs) to handle multiple Wi-Fi 6-capable clients on each channel simultaneously— regardless of device or traffic type. This improves efficiency by boosting overall capacity, while reducing latency.

Target Wake Time (TWT)

Ideal for IoTs that communicate infrequently, TWT establishes a schedule for when clients need to communicate with an AP. This helps reduce power consumption, extending the battery life of clients.

Multiuser, Multiple Input, Multiple Output (MU-MIMO)

Allows you to serve multiple clients (Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 6) at the same time.

1024-Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (1024-QAM)

Enables a 25% data increase over 256 QAM, improving throughput in your access points and devices.

Trusted Platform Module (TPM)

All Aruba Instant On access points have an installed TPM for secure storage of credentials, keys, and boot codes.

Basic Service Set Coloring (BSS COLORING)

Allows the network to assign a “color” tag to a channel and reduce the threshold for interference. Network performance is improved because APs on the same channel can be closer together and still transmit at the same time—as long as they are different colors.

Aruba Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC)

Uses built-in filtering to automatically minimize the impact of interference from cellular networks, distributed antenna systems (DAS), and commercial small-cell or femtocell equipment.

Low Density Parity Check (LDPC)

Delivers high-efficiency error correction for increased throughput.

Transmit Beamforming (TXBF)

Delivers increased signal reliability and range.

The Instant On Differentiator

The Aruba Instant On App

Manage everything through our official app on the device of your choice. Manage your network from anywhere, anytime- all from the palm of your hand.

built-in security gateway/firewall

Stop unwanted people and bots from accessing your network. Leverage advanced features that do not require external gateways—or the complexity that comes with them. Quickly and easily swap it out with another AP in a single click, in case of gateway failure. With the new Cloudflare integration you get private and fast web browsing. The 802.11k standard improves roaming performance helping clients connect to nearby APs quickly.

Complete App Visibility And Control

Get full visibility into the apps running on your network. Block certain applications from being used. Manage this feature straight from the Aruba Instant On app.

Tailored User Experiences

Customize the experience with logos, authentications, and rules of use. Set data usage per app. Limit duration of use. Use an external portal or service like Facebook Wi-Fi. Create open guest networks for quick and easy access. With Instant On mobile app, you can apply bandwidth limits for your clients or your network for prioritizing certain primary networks.

Enterprise Grade Wi-Fi And Features

Control network widths, channels, and channel widths to suit your specific environment. Keep users happy as they move between spaces or meetings with a seamless handoff between APs. Just provide secure WPA2 or WPA3 authentication on your networks and we’ll do the rest. Instant On supports OWE for secure, open Wi-Fi network access at cafes, retail stores and restaurants.

Site Inventory And Topology View

The site inventory view lists all the Instant On switches and access points on a single interface, and the topology view provides an intuitive structure of all Instant On devices deployed in a network — allowing you to quickly identify non-functioning devices and troubleshoot accordingly. Network issues can be easily diagnosed with connectivity tests like Ping and Traceroute.

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

As the number of security breaches continue to rise, 2FA has become an essential tool to mitigate risk against compromised login credentials. Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), provides an additional layer of authentication, prevents attackers from remotely accessing your network, and secures your customer information.

Multi-Site Management

Manage multiple sites, multiple networks, distributed deployments, and multi-tenancy deployments with ease through our cloud-hosted web interface and mobile app. Create unique configurations, statistics, guest portals, and admin read/write and readonly privileges for every site. Instant On allows you to create three admin accounts per site, offering an option to lock accounts to prevent them from accidental deletion.

PPPoE And Static IP

Every customer has different environment. They might want to authenticate with the ISP’s PPPoE server and provide static IP to the APs.

Smart Mesh

Extend coverage to hard-to-reach spaces where Ethernet cabling may not exist. Set up a Mesh network up in minutes through the app—indoors or out.

5-Star Voice And Video Quality

Keep users connected via softphones and mobile apps. Automatically detect and prioritize voice and video applications such as Skype, FaceTime, and WeChat that use SIP, SCCP and other popular protocols.
