Aruba AirSlice for extended OFDMA assurance
Initially, APs in controller-less mode (Instant) can provide SLA- grade 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 570 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 MU-MIMO 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, client type, are used to identify and maintain best connection.
Aruba Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC)
This 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.
Green AP energy efficiency
Aruba Wi-Fi 6 APs utilize AI-powered analytics to automatically transition in and out of a sleep mode.
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 allows organizations to leverage the 570 Series as an IoT platform, which eliminates the need for an overlay infrastructure and additional IT resources.
Simple and secure access
To simplify policy enforcement, the Aruba 570 Series uses Aruba's policy enforcement firewall (PEF) features 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.
Each 570 Series AP provides 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.
