Aruba Networks Advances Mobile Collaboration for Digital Workplace with the Introduction of 802.11ac Wave 2 Access Points
May 27 15
Aruba Networks ushers in greater network performance for the digital workplace with the introduction of the Aruba 320 series access points. The 320 series is the industry’s first 802.11ac Wave 2 AP with dynamic multi-user multiple input/multiple output (MU-MIMO) grouping, significantly boosting network capacity. It is the only Wave 2 AP in its class to integrate a BLE Beacon that can help manage battery-powered Aruba Beacons from the cloud for firmware updates, battery life monitoring, and configuration changes. The ultra-fast Aruba 320 series 802.11ac Wave 2 APs offer the high performance in high-density environments and can be managed by a Mobility Controller or deployed in controllerless Aruba Instant mode. These Wave 2 access points deliver multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) aware ClientMatch to boost network efficiency and support the growing device density demands on network. By 2018, it is projected that 75% of workers in large organizations will interact with video more than three times daily1. Therefore, IT departments are challenged to support increasing Wi-Fi capacity performance requirements. Additionally, the introduction of a higher performing 802.11ac Wave 2 infrastructure requires the right kind of network intelligence to take advantage of new MU-MIMO-capable mobile devices by steering and grouping them together. As an Aruba Wave 2 beta customer, Netflix Inc., the Internet television network with over 62 million members in over 50 countries, is closely tracking the advancements in 802.11ac technology to support the bandwidth and capacity requirements of emerging applications. Leveraging Wave 2 to Support #GenMobile in the Digital Workplace. To prepare for the anticipated tsunami of Wave 2 devices, Aruba has introduced new innovations into its patented ClientMatch technology, which originally solved the sticky client problem. The new enhanced Aruba ClientMatch incorporates intelligent awareness for Wave 2 MU-MIMO clients, automatically steering and grouping MU-MIMO devices together on Aruba 320 series APs. This allows the 320 series to transmit data to multiple Wave 2-enabled devices simultaneously, increasing overall network capacity. Through these Wave 2 enhancements, ClientMatch technology will not only improve individual device performance, but it will also boost overall network efficiency for 802.11ac Wave 2. The result is up to 42% improvement in performance over competing Wave 2 solutions without the enhanced ClientMatch technology. Expanding Indoor Location Services with Integrated Bluetooth Beacons and Management In developed countries, most people spend the majority of their time indoors, and more than half own Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-enabled smartphones. This large market, compounded with a growing number of companies planning to implement indoor location-based services, presents a unique opportunity for organizations to take advantage of Aruba Mobile Engagement. Aruba has integrated Bluetooth low-energy Aruba Beacons into the 320 series AP. This enables remote, cloud-based management of battery-powered Aruba Beacons, eliminating the need to install a USB version of the Aruba Beacon on Aruba access points. Standalone beacons from competing vendors lack backend management tools and can’t efficiently scale to enterprise-wide or large public venue deployments. With the 320 series’ integrated Aruba Beacon, enterprises can now remotely manage, configure, and monitor battery levels from a cloud-based server, even for large-scale deployments with thousands of beacons. The Aruba 320 series APs will be available in calendar third quarter 2015. 320 series AP prices start at U.S. list $1,395. Enhanced ClientMatch is also available in June as part of the new ArubaOS 6.4.4 software enhancement.
