Flexible deployment options
Deployed as cloud-based (Aruba Central) or multi-vendor (Aruba Airwave) and is controller-less (virtual) or controller-based.
Features and Benefits:
The 570EX Series APs are designed to optimize user experience by maximizing Wi-Fi efficiency and dramatically reducing airtime contention between clients.
Advantages of OFDMA
This capability allows Aruba Wi-Fi 6 APs to handle multiple Wi-Fi 6 enabled clients simultaneously on a single radio. Channel utilization is optimized per transaction by matching allocated bandwidth in a channel to the offered user load. These sub divisions of the channel are referred to as Resource Units (RUs).
Aruba Air Slice for Extended OFDMA Assurance
Initially, APs in controller-less mode (Instant) can provide SLAgrade performance by allocating RUs 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.
Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO)
The 570EX Series APs support downlink MU-MIMO similar to Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac Wave 2) APs. With the introduction OFDMA in Wi-Fi 6, the overhead for this capability is reduced and MUMIMO effectiveness is substantially improved for large client counts.
Wi-Fi 6 and MU-MIMO aware client optimization
Aruba’s patented AI-powered ClientMatch technology ensures that all clients are attached to their best serving Access Point. Session metrics, network metrics, applications and client type are used to identify and maintain the best connection.
Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC)
The ACC feature uses built in filtering to automatically minimize the impact of interference of high power cellular base stations, in building distributed antenna systems as well as small cell and femtocell equipment.
Intelligent Power Monitoring (IPM)
Aruba APs continuously monitor and report hardware energy consumption. APs can be configured to enable or disable capabilities based on the available PoE power – ideal when wired switches have exhausted their power budget.
IOT PLATFORM CAPABILITIES
Aruba Wi-Fi 6 APs include 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 allow organizations to leverage the 570EX Series as an IoT platform, which eliminates the need for an overlay infrastructure and additional IT resources.
Target Wake Time (TWT)
Ideal for IoT solutions that communicate infrequently, this Wi-Fi 6 capability allows IoT devices to use 802.11ax protocol. TWT coordinates with client devices to allow them to sleep for extended periods and use shorter wake times to communicate before returning to sleep. This substantially extends the useful operating life of Wi-Fi 6 based battery powered sensors.
ARUBA SECURE INFRASTRUCTURE
The Aruba 570EX Series is an integral part of Aruba’s zero trust security approach to help protect user authentication and wireless traffic. Select capabilities include:
WPA3 and Enhanced Open
With the introduction of WPA3 and Enhanced Open, a Wi-Fi 6 certified client will never send unencrypted traffic over the air. Even with an open authenticated network, Enhanced Open still provides strong encryption over the air.
In all Wi-Fi 6 user sessions, each user is uniquely encrypted and if they disconnect and reconnect, the encryption changes from session to session.
MPSK enables simpler passkey management for WPA2 devices – should the Wi-Fi password on one device change, no additional changes are needed for other devices. This feature is enabled when networks are deployed with ClearPass Policy Manager.
In Remote AP (RAP) and IAP-VPN deployments, the Aruba 570EX Series can be used to establish a secure SSL/IPSec VPN tunnel to a Gateway or Mobility Controller that is configured as a VPN concentrator.
Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
For enhanced device assurance, all Aruba APs have an installed TPM for secure storage of credentials, keys and boot code.
SIMPLE AND SECURE ACCESS
To simplify policy enforcement, the Aruba 570EX Series uses Aruba’s Policy Enforcement Firewall (PEF) to encapsulate all traffic from the AP to the Mobility Controller (gateway) for end-to-end encryption and inspection. Policies are applied based on context including user role, device type, application, 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 570EX Series AP provide connectivity for a maximum of 512 associated clients per radio (1024 total).
Flexible Operation and Management
A unique feature of Aruba APs is the ability to operate in either controller-less or controller-based mode.
Controller-less (Instant) Mode
In controller-less 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 central management of traffic forwarding, segmentation, encryption, and policy enforcement.
Available management choices include Aruba Central (cloud- based) or Aruba AirWave (multi-vendor, on prem) solutions.
For large installations across multiple sites, Aruba APs can be shipped and activated with Zero Touch Provisioning through Aruba Central or AirWave. This reduces deployment time, centralizes configuration, and provides inventory visibility.
