Available Models for 560EX Series
Multi-user Efficiency with Wi-Fi 6
The 560EX Series Hazardous Location APs feature Class 1 Division 2 and ATEX Zone 2 certification to operate in hazardous locations like oil and gas and potentially explosive environments – with Wi-Fi 6 to support critical access and IoT functionality.
Supporting higher speed and higher user densities, the 560EX Series APs maximize performance and efficiency with support for OFDMA and MU-MIMO technologies, enabling the most efficient communication between the client and access point.
IoT and location-ready
Aruba Wi-Fi 6 supports 802.15.4/Zigbee, Bluetooth, and third-party overlays to simplify the deployment and management of IoT services, asset-tracking services, security solutions, and IoT sensors. Ideal for IoT infrequent communications.
Simple and secure access
Enforces built-in policy firewall (layer 7) for each new client on the network and utilizes Aruba ClearPass Policy Manager for centralized policy management. For enhanced security, the 560EX Series APs provide storage of credentials, keys, and booting.

1.5 Gbps maximum speed (HE80/HE20)
Delivers higher speed and reliability for hazardous locations like oil and gas and potentially explosive environments.
Wi-Fi 6 for OFDMA and WPA3
Handles multiple clients regardless of device or traffic type, plus WPA3 and Advanced Open increases enterprise security.
IoT-ready Bluetooth 5 and 802.15.4/Zigbee support
Simplifies deploying and managing IoT location services, asset-tracking services, security solutions, and IoT sensors.
Dynamic Segmentation and policy-enforcement firewalls
Enforces (automatically) consistent policies across all networks, keeping users and devices secure.
AI-powered, Wi-Fi radio frequency RF with AirMatch
Utilizes AI learning, Air Match provides automated RF optimization and looks at analytics across the entire network.
Air Slice for SLA-grade performance
Guarantees a predictable user experience, prioritizing traffic and arrival of time-sensitive data with Air Slice application.
Features and Benefits:
The 560 Series access points (APs) are designed to optimize user experience by maximizing Wi-Fi efficiency and dramatically reducing airtime contention between clients.
Features include Orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA), multi-user MIMO and cellular optimization. With up to 2 spatial streams, the 560 Series provides reliable connectivity for most any application.
Advantages of OFDMA
OFDMA capability allows Aruba APs to handle multiple Wi-Fi 6 capable clients on each channel simultaneously, regardless of device or traffic type. Channel utilization is optimized by handling each transaction via smaller sub-carriers or resource units (RUs), which means that clients are sharing a channel yet not competing for airtime and bandwidth.
Aruba Air Slice™ for Extended OFDMA Assurance
Initially, APs in controller-less mode (Instant) can provide SLA-grade performance by allocating radio resources, such as time, frequency, and spatial streams, to specific traffic types. By combining Aruba’s Policy Enforcement Firewall (PEF) and Layer 7 deep packet inspection (DPI) to identify user roles and applications, the APs will dynamically allocate the bandwidth needed. Non-Wi-Fi 6 clients can also benefit. For APs, Air Slice uses Aruba Central for management. Controller-based APs will be supported in a future software release.
Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO)
560 Series APs support downlink MU-MIMO just like Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac Wave 2) APs. The added benefit is the ability to multiply the number of clients that can now send traffic, thus optimizing client-to-AP spatial stream diversity.
Wi-Fi 6 and MU-MIMO aware client optimization
Aruba’s patented AI-powered ClientMatch technology eliminates sticky client issues by placing Wi-Fi 6 capable devices on the best available AP. Session metrics are used to steer mobile devices to the best AP based on available bandwidth, types of applications being used and traffic type – even as users roam.
Aruba Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC)
The ACC feature 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.
Intelligent Power Monitoring (IPM)
Aruba APs continuously monitor and report hardware energy consumption. They can also be configured to enable or disable capabilities based on available PoE power – ideal when wired switches have exhausted their power budget.
IOT PLATFORM CAPABILITIES
Like all Aruba Wi-Fi 6 APs, the 560 Series includes an integrated Bluetooth 5 and 802.15.4 radio (for Zigbee support) to simplify deploying and managing IoT-based location services, asset tracking services, security solutions and IoT sensors. This allows organizations to leverage the 560 Series as an IoT platform, which eliminates the need for an overlay infrastructure and additional IT resources.
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 improve client power savings and reduces airtime contention with other clients.
ARUBA SECURE INFRASTRUCTURE
The Aruba 560 Series includes components of Aruba’s Zero Trust Security to help protect user authentication and wireless traffic. Select capabilities include:
WPA3 and Enhanced Open
Support for stronger encryption and authentication is provided via the latest version of WPA for enterprise protected networks.
Enhanced Open offers seamless protection for users connecting to open networks where each session is automatically encrypted to protect user passwords and data on guest networks.
MPSK enables simpler passkey management for WPA2 devices – should the Wi-Fi password on one device or device type change, no additional changes are needed for other devices. Requires Aruba ClearPass Policy Manager.
In Remote AP (RAP) and IAP-VPN deployments, the Aruba 560 Series can be used to establish a secure SSL/IPSec VPN tunnel to a Mobility Controller that is acting as a VPN concentrator.
Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
For enhanced device assurance, all Aruba APs have an installed TPM chip for secure storage of credentials and keys, and boot code.
SIMPLE AND SECURE ACCESS
To simplify policy enforcement, the Aruba 560 Series uses Aruba’s Policy Enforcement Firewall (PEF) feature to encapsulate all traffic from the AP to the Mobility Controller (or Gateway) for end-to-end encryption and inspection. Policies are applied based on user role, device type, applications, and location. This reduces the manual configuration of SSIDs, VLANs and ACLs. PEF also serves as the underlying technology for Aruba Dynamic Segmentation.
HIGH DENSITY CONNECTIVITY
Each 560 Series AP provides connectivity for a maximum of 256 associated clients per radio (512 in total). In real-world scenarios, the maximum recommended client density is dependent on environmental conditions.
FLEXIBLE OPERATION AND MANAGEMENT
Controller-less (Instant) Mode
In controllerless mode, one AP serves as a virtual controller for the entire network.
Mobility Controller Mode
For optimized network performance, roaming and security, APs tunnel all traffic to a mobility controller for centrally managed traffic forwarding and segmentation, data encryption, and policy enforcement.
Available management solutions include Aruba Central (cloudmanaged) or Aruba AirWave – a multi-vendor on-premises management solution. For large installations across multiple sites, APs can be factory-shipped and can be activated with Zero Touch Provisioning through Aruba Central or AirWave. This reduces deployment time, centralizes configuration, and helps manage inventory.
