The Aruba 530 Series Campus Access Points with IEEE 802.11ax technology are designed to deliver extreme-performance access for mobile and IoT devices in environments where device density is very high. The Aruba 530 Series uses 802.11ax features to efficiently and simultaneously serve multiple clients and traffic types in dense environments, increasing data rates for both individual device and overall system.
The 530Series supports maximum data rates of 2.4Gbps in the5GHz band and 1,150Mbps in the 2.4GHz band (for an aggregate peak data rate of 3.55Gbps). Each AP supports up to 1024 associated client devices per radio, making the high-end 802.11ax 530 Series APs ideal for high density environments, such as higher education, K12, retail, hotels and digital workplaces.
The Aruba 530 Series Campus Access Points with 802.11ax technology efficiently and simultaneously serves multiple clients, increasing data rates for both individual devices and as an overall system.
Multi-user transmission with downlink and uplink Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) increases user data rates and reduces latency, especially for large numbers of devices with short frames or low data-rate requirements, such as voice and IoT devices.
Multi-user capability with downlink multi-user MIMO improves network capacity by allowing multiple devices to transmit simultaneously.
The Aruba ClientMatch technology will automatically attempt to group 802.11ax capable devices onto available AP radios with equivalent capabilities, so that the performance benefits of OFDMA are maximized. This means increased network performance and a boost in network capacity.
Smart Power Management
The Aruba 530 Series Campus Access Points includes Aruba Intelligent Power Monitoring (IPM) which allows for a gradual upgrade of switching by allowing the APs to operate if there is not enough Power over Ethernet (PoE) power.
This feature enables the AP to continuously monitor and report its actual power consumption and optionally make autonomous decisions to disable certain capabilities based on the amount of power available to the unit.
As higher-performance 802.11ax access points drive more power consumption, the Aruba NetInsight Green AP feature allows the 530 series access points to draw less power when it’s not being used, such as evenings when the buildings are empty.
IoT and Location Ready
The Aruba 530 Series Campus Access Points provides unique benefits for IoT devices from dedicated channels in OFDMA allowing for simultaneous transmission of IoT connections with low latency, to power saving options with Target Wake Time (TWT) to saves battery life.
The 530 series supports an integrated Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) and Zigbee radio, as well as a USB port for increased flexibility, providing better security and reliable connectivity for IoT devices and for implementing location services.
