The affordable, mid-range Aruba 207 Series access point delivers high performance 802.11ac for medium density enterprise environments, such as schools, retail branches, warehouses, hotels and enterprise offices, where the environment is cost sensitive.
The compact Aruba 207 Series AP delivers a maximum concurrent data rate of 867Mbps in the 5GHz band and 400 Mbps in the 2.4GHz band (for an aggregate peak data rate of 1.3Gbps).
With the integrated Bluetooth Aruba Beacon, the 207 Series AP provides advanced location and indoor way finding, and proximity-based push notification services while simplifying the remote management of battery-powered Aruba Beacons.
Is this the right product for your business?
Dual Radio 802.11ac Access Point
Supports up to 867 Mbps in the 5GHz band (with 2SS/VHT80 clients) and up to 400 Mbps in the 2.4GHz band (with 2SS/VHT40 clients)
Built-in Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) radio
Enables location-based services with BLE-enabled mobile devices receiving signals from multiple Aruba Beacons at the same time
Enables management of a network of Aruba Beacons
Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC)
Minimizes interference from 3G/4G cellular networks, distributed antenna systems and commercial small cell/femtocell equipment.
Quality of service for app visibility and control
Supports priority handling and policy enforcement for unified communication apps, including Microsoft Skype for Business with encrypted videoconferencing, voice, chat and desktop sharing
Adaptive Radio Management (ARM) technology automatically assigns channel and power settings, provides airtime fairness, and ensures that APs stay clear of all sources of RF interference to deliver reliable, high-performance WLANs
The Aruba 207 Series APs can be configured to provide part-time or dedicated air monitoring for wireless intrusion protection, VPN tunnels to extend remote locations to corporate resources, and wireless mesh connections where Ethernet drops are not available.
Intelligent app visibility and control
AppRF technology leverages deep packet inspection to classify and block, prioritize or limit bandwidth for over 2,500 enterprise apps or groups of apps
Integrated wireless intrusion protection offers threat protection and mitigation, and eliminates the need for separate RF sensors and security appliances
IP reputation and security services identify, classify, and block malicious files, URLs and IPs, providing comprehensive protection against advanced online threats
Integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for secure storage of credentials and keys
CHOOSE YOUR OPERATING MODE
Aruba 207 Series APs offer a choice of operating modes to meet your unique management and deployment requirements.
Controller-managed mode – When managed by Aruba Mobility Controllers, Aruba 207 Series APs offer centralized configuration, data encryption, policy enforcement and network services, as well as distributed and centralized traffic forwarding
Aruba Instant mode – In Aruba Instant mode, a single AP automatically distributes the network configuration to other Instant APs in the WLAN. Simply power-up one Instant AP, configure it over the air, and plug in the other APs – the entire process takes about five minutes. If WLAN requirements change, a built-in migration path allows 207 Series Instant APs to become part of a WLAN that is managed by a Mobility Controller.
Remote AP (RAP) for branch deployments
Air monitor (AM) for wireless IDS, rogue detection and containment
Secure enterprise mesh
For large installations across multiple sites, the Aruba Activate service significantly reduces deployment time by automating device provisioning, firmware upgrades, and inventory management. With Aruba Activate, the Instant APs are factory-shipped to any site and configure themselves when powered up.
