The Aruba 228 access points are built for harsh, weather-protected areas such as warehouses and stadiums. Delivering Wi-Fi performance to 802.11ac mobile devices, the 228 APs has a maximum data rate of 1.3 Gbps and are three times faster than 802.11n APs.
The 228 APs are equipped with ClientMatch technology to eliminate sticky clients by obtaining session performance metrics from mobile devices. This information is used to direct each mobile device to the best AP and radio on the WLAN for a continued high performance experience.
To meet the unique management and deployment requirements, the 228 APs let you choose between Aruba Mobility Controller or Aruba Instant mode. Aruba Mobility Controller manages the 228 AP to run ArubaOS, delivering centralized configuration, data encryption, policy enforcement, and network services. When deployed in controllerless Aruba Instant mode, the 228 AP runs InstantOS to automatically distribute the network configuration to other Instant APs in the WLAN.
